Choosing the right gift for a baby shower can be challenging, but creating something special like a gift basket is sure to make the mom-to-be feel loved and appreciated. A baby shower gift basket is perfect for any budget, and you can get creative with your items. From practical must-haves to unique treats, here are some ideas for what you can include in your gift basket.
Diaper Bag Essentials
Every parent needs good diaper bag essentials. You may want to include things like diapers, wipes, rash cream, travel size hand sanitizer and lotion, diaper disposal bags, bibs, pacifiers, and teething rings. You may also want to add some cloth diapers and burp cloths too if you’re feeling bold.
Feeding supplies are always handy to have on hand when it comes to caring for a newborn baby. Consider adding some bottles, formula (if needed), nipples, sippy cups or straws (for when they’re ready), spoons and forks (or just soft-tipped ones if they’re already eating solids), bowls, bibs—basically anything related to feeding time!
Baby Bathtime Necessities
It’s always nice to provide the new parents with all of their bathtime necessities in one place! Add items like shampoo and body wash (unscented so as not to irritate sensitive skin), body lotion or oil (again unscented!), cotton swabs or balls (for cleaning those little crevices), washcloths or sponge mitts (to clean their delicate skin without harsh scrubbing), hooded towels (or just regular ones depending on how fancy you want things), baby bath tubs—you get the idea.
Creating the perfect gift basket doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. With just a few key items that any new parent would love and appreciate, you can make someone’s special day even better. Put together your own personalized baby shower gift basket with these creative ideas for items that will help make life easier for the new parents-to-be. It is sure to bring a smile to their faces as they welcome their newest bundle of joy into this world.
