Make Baby Gift Baskets
Got an upcoming baby shower to attend? Welcoming a new baby? You can make baby gift baskets filled with handmade goodies and more and you will be the star of the baby shower or welcome the new baby in style on their birthday. If you are looking for the best baby gift ideas I have to say that the baby gift basket is the way to go. You can design and stylize the basket to fit any theme or taste. You can include things for both Mom and the new baby. Typically a gift basket can run a tad bit pricey but if you make the baby gift baskets yourself this does not have to be the case. I can show you how to save money and come out on top with the best baby gift ever.
* Shop in the right places to find baskets for low discount prices
* Fill your gift basket with handmade baby gifts and personalized items
* Baby gift registry? No problem! Buy a few items from the registry and add a few hand made gifts too
* Make baby gift baskets designed to please both Mom-to-be and the new baby
It all starts with the basket. After all you cannot make baby gift baskets without first buying the basket. Shop smart. Just about every community has some sort of discount or thrift store. Give a little thought before you shop and you will be able to find a good basket at a fraction of the cost.
Start by checking clearance sections of the stores you regularly shop in. Another great way to find good quality, cheap baskets is to check the discount stores and thrift stores. I live in New England. The stores I shop in may not be available everywhere but to give an example (and for those of you in New England) - Some great shops to check are The Christmas Tree Shop, and Ocean State Job Lot. Have a Michael's Craft Store in your area? The baskets they sell are generally a little pricey but their selection is great. Each and every week they publish a flier in the local newspaper which contains a 50% off coupon. Check your newspaper and use the coupon to buy a basket.
Handmade baby gifts are the best! I don't know about you but I get really sentimental about handmade gifts. And I keep them forever. Keep in mind that a handmade gift is a one of a kind gift. Choosing to make baby gift baskets yourself is choosing to make a unique, one of a kind gift. It is also a very sincere way to show someone you care. Putting in the time and effort to make your own baby gifts shows the recipient that you really were thinking of them on their special day.
There are a number of things that are quite simple to make that a new parent will be delighted to receive.
Do the prospective parents know the sex of the baby yet? Maybe even picked out a name? Or maybe you are going to make a gift for a special birthday girl or boy? Why not make a personalized baby gift?
And I know these day when it comes to baby showers most people are using a baby registry. But that does not mean that there isn't room for a couple handmade gifts. Especially when you are planning to make baby gift baskets!
Buy a few of the less expensive and essential items for your gift basket and then add a few handmade items to go with it.
And my personal favorite idea... Make a basket geared for both Mama to be and baby by not only placing baby items in your basket but also adding some relaxing items for mom to use as well. Add some scented aromatherapy candles, body or belly butter, and maybe a certificate for the spa or a pre-natal massage.
Whichever way you choose to make baby gift baskets you will be sure to please the recipients and hopefully have a little fun while you are at it.
