Christmas hamper ideas for newborns

Plenty of ideas are available for a new baby gift basket, ranging from the simple, low-priced packages to the elaborate and expensive ones. They come in various themes that are based on colors (pink for baby girls and blue for baby boys) and popular characters on kiddie cartoons and TV shows. These gift baskets are filled with goodies for the newborn as well as the mother.

There are three types of gift baskets: those that are ready to purchase, customized in-store, and made at home. Got no time to create your own gift basket? You may opt to buy a pre-made basket. But if you prefer a gift basket that you can customize yourself, you may order from an online shop that allows you to choose the items you want to include in the basket. Lastly, a homemade gift basket is ideal for those who have the time and skills to make one.

Steps to create a baby gift basket

Creating your own baby gift basket is as fun and exciting as shopping for gift baskets. It may be quite more challenging, but it preparing the baby gift items on your own can be a very rewarding experience.

The first thing you have to do when preparing a baby gift basket is to look for a suitable basket or container that will hold the gift items. Apart from the traditional baskets, the other container options you may consider include a baby bath tub, diaper pail bucket, or a little wicker cradle. These container choices are in fact more creative than the usual baskets used for baby gift baskets.

Now, for the most enjoyable part—picking the baby items to include in your new baby gift basket. You will never run out of gift item ideas because every new parent will need a lot of things for the baby. These must-have baby goodies include baby garments, diapers, feeding bottles, baby quilts, diaper changing pads, bibs, baby mobiles, baby bath products, petroleum jelly, toys, and the list goes on.

After you have filled your basket or container with the essential baby items, it is time to wrap your new baby gift basket with a transparent plastic. You can top it with a ribbon or bow to make it look more interesting. Finally, include a card with a brief message for the parents and their newborn.

Celebrate with the parents, too!

For the new parents, help them celebrate a new milestone in their life by giving them an awesome hamper! Send them a gourmet food gift basket designed elegantly and make them happy. For sure, they will rave about the effort and thoughtfulness in giving your gift. To make your gourmet food gift basket a certified hit, fill it with different kinds of cookies, chocolates, and popcorns.
