It is very easy to put together a baby gift basket if you are feeling creative. Crafts stores offer you many designs and decorations such as ribbons, tissue papers, trimmings and different sized baskets. Here are some gift basket ideas for baby shower you can put together:

1. For a fashionista baby

Putting together an OOTD for babies is probably the most wonderful things. Cute dresses for baby girl or cool suits for baby boy when combined with the baby’s cuteness can melt any heart. So make sure to look for the most trendy baby clothes they can use when going out so that they can show off their fashionista side to the world.

However, keep in mind that babies can be a little irritable at times. So you may want to choose clothes with comfortable materials for them not to have any rashes or anything.

2. For baby’s comfort

Babies love to sleep. So use that as an idea for putting together a gift basket filled with the word “comfy”. Baby pillows, baby blankets, bonnets, socks and others that will give babies a good night sleep.

Even though babies still can’t talk, they will show how grateful they are for such presents by sleeping comfortably and deeply.

3. For a playful baby

Babies are beautiful and heart-warming to watch when playing and laughing. So, you can put together a gift basket with soft toys inside for baby girl or boy to play. You can add in rubber ducks, cute plush toys, hanging musical toys, or animal squirting toys.

Since babies love to put everything in their mouth, just make sure that you are only choosing toys that are not too small and are only suitable for ages 1 to 3 years old.

4. For baby’s bath time

Instead of an ordinary basket, you can get a baby tub instead and fill it with baby bath items. A bath-themed gift basket for babies is a great gift for the cute little thing to stay fresh and smells nice. Put together essential baby bath items such as baby towels, baby shampoo, baby bath liquid soap, baby lotion, baby powder, baby oil, baby wipes and more inside a baby bath tub. This way, you can make sure that your whole gift will be used; from the items to the container.

5. For babies’ essential needs

Babies needs a lot. So, help their parents by putting together a gift basket filled with practical baby items. There are so many items to choose from. From grooming items such as baby cotton swabs, nail clippers for babies, soft hairbrush to essential baby items like baby bottles, baby diapers, baby spoons, and pacifiers.

Do you have a brother or a lover who sees games as drugs? Then you can create a gift basket out of those. No, I am not asking you to buy a gamer laptop or buy him an XBOX or even set up a gamer PC for him. (But if you could, then why not?) Except for the fact that these are too much expensive, these will not fit in your regular basket. What I am saying is you can buy him the latest games in CDs he can play. Or buy him accessories like a computer mouse for his laptops and PC and even headset that he can use while playing his favorite games.

2. For the handymen

Does your dad or husband have the ability to fix anything in the house? Why not put together some handy tools and equipment he can use? Get him a gift basket filled with pliers, grinder, screwdrivers, and hammers.  I’m sure he will love it and be more eager to fix all broken hinges and lightings in the house.

3. For men who love outdoor activities

Does he like fishing? Then you can put together a basket with all the fishing gears he will need. Or a basket filled with beers to drink while waiting for his catch. Then that basket will be used for another purpose by using it as a container for all the fish that he caught.

Does he love biking, hiking, or maybe some extreme sports? You can put together all the necessary gears he can use to fulfill his hunger to sweat. Shoes, towels, a bottled water, hand gloves or elbow and knees protector. This will instantly give a smile to his face.

4. For men with rides

Some men seem to love their cars or rides more than their girlfriends and wife. But, it is not true. They just love taking care of precious things like how they care for you. So, give him something he can definitely use for his ride. You can put together cleaning products or car tools that will be very useful for his ride’s maintenance.

5. For men who need a break

Men are the head of any household. Most of them are working really hard for their family needs. So they can use the night to take a break. Instead of going to a bar, pamper your man with a gift basket filled with wines or beers and snacks to go with it. You can also add few of his favorite DVD collection of action movies and spend the night relaxing with him.
