new baby gift basket
There is no event quite like a new baby. The birth of a baby calls for an extra special gift. Give the new parents a new baby gift basket, filled with items that they will be able to use. If you're not quite sure what to include in such a basket, let Gift Baskets Remembered help guide you through the process of putting together the perfect basket.
You can go with a themed basket for boy or girl if you like. Another way to create a new baby gift basket is to create it around the nursery. Fill a radio flyer wagon with stuffed animals, onsies, bottles and pacifiers. Buy a baby bathtub and fill it with lotions, bath washes, shampoos and a cute, fluffy towel.
A new baby gift basket might include something for the whole family. Start the basket with the basics for the new baby, diapers, lotions, formula, blankets, and little hats. If this is a first child for the happy couple, include a book for dad to read to the new baby and some soothing music or lavender based lotions and bath salts for mom. If this is an addition to an already formed sibling base, include things in the basket that the older brothers and sister will enjoy, such as books about siblings, bathtub crayons or their very own scrapbooks so that they can commemorate the ocassion in any fashion they like.
Another option for a new baby gift basket is to send a Congratulations basket from Gift Baskets Remembered. We have an extensive line of baskets that will suit any need or craving that might occur after the delivery. It is always nice for the new parents to have snacks at their disposal when they are up at all hours.
Check with the new grandparents to see if there is anything on the original baby registry that was not purchased. Often times, you will find that the larger items get purchased because they are the most expensive and the most taxing on the new couple. If there are smaller items left on the registry, take a shopping trip, pack them up in a large, flexible wicker basket that can double as a small basinet for impromptu nap times. The new parents can take their baby in to every room with them if they choose.
New parents are often so overwhelmed when they first come home from the hospital, any basket will be a welcome gift. When putting together a new baby gift basket, consider what items may be useful down the road. The new parents may have gotten a dozen onsies in size 0-3 months, but none in a 12 month size. Don't be afraid to buy things that they will use several months down the road. A new baby gift basket is a wonderful and thoughtful gift; give it with pride.
