Did a friend, family member or work colleague across the country have a new baby?
Would you like to send them a thoughtful gift to help celebrate and welcome their new arrival to their family?
Here are some ideas to help you design, make and send the perfect baby gift basket for a baby boy, baby girl or even twins.
First, you may want to decide whether you want to send a specific color themed gift based on the sex of the baby.
If they had a baby girl, you may want to collect baby items with a pink theme.
Also for a baby boys gift, you may like baby items in darker colors like blue, red or green.
If you don’t know the sex of the baby, you can choose a neutral theme with baby products in natural tan or beige colors. A neutral color themed gift can also be appropriate for parents who you know are eco friendly or nature lovers, as many neutral beige colored baby items are organic. Any parent who you know loves the environment, eats organic and buys organic goods will love a gift filled with organic baby items.
Once you have decided the color them for your basket, you can now think of a sub theme for your gift. For example, if your new parents are Doctors, you could choose a theme of a baby doctor. Or if the parents are big golfers, you could try to find themed baby items with a golfing theme. If the parents like music, try to find items with a musical theme. For animal lovers, find items which include any animal theme. For hockey fans, send them a gift filled with their favorite hockey team baby items and they will be thrilled beyond belief. Every hockey fan wants to have another hockey fan in their midst.
If you have decided on your color and theme, you should now find and decide on
the container you will display and gift your baby items in. This will determine
the number of items you include in the baby gift.
Containers can range from a
wicker basket to a diaper bag. You can really use anything of your choosing. A
wicker basket is easy to find and purchase and can be used after for decorative
display in baby’s nursery. A diaper bag can be filled with baby goodies and will
be appreciated for travelling with baby in the future.
Metal storage containers, metal planters, fabric storage boxes, lunch boxes, little red wagons, baby bath tubs, baby sleeping Moses baskets, travel tote bags and toy boxes can be used as gift basket containers. Use your imagination but remember, you need to be able to gift and display your items appropriately in the container as well as be able to pack and ship it easily.
You can now start to build your items to include in your baby gift basket.
It may be that you start with 1 main item and work around that. For example
if you find the perfect blanket with a specific theme or color, try to work
around that theme for the rest of the items. Let’s say you start with a pink
blanket with butterflies on it, try to find other items with a similar theme
or color – try to find baby items with butterfly designs or more pink baby
There are a variety of baby products which you can include in the gift
basket. Here are just a few:
Once you have collected your items, you will have to place them in the gift container in a decorative way. You may need to put some filler or tissue paper in the bottom so that the items can be displayed at different heights. Because the gift will be shipped across the country or to another city via mail or courier, be sure you pack the items securely.
Now you will need to wrap the gift in either a gift basket cellophane bag or tulle, depending on what you have available. Tie it up at the top and finish off with a large bow and ribbons. Do not forget to include your gift card. You can whole punch a corner of the card and attach it with ribbon on the outside of the gift with the bow. Or you can simply include your gift card inside the gift basket wrapping itself - as long as your gift recipients know whom the gift is from.
Find the appropriate sized box to ship your gift in and be sure to pack it securely with lots of filler paper, popcorn packing peanuts or air bags so that there is no shifting, moving and breakage during delivery shipping.
Have your gift recipient address ready and go to your local post office or courier office to prepare the shipping label. Be sure you get tracking information on your gift as you want to be sure you know where it is at all times and be sure it gets delivered. You don’t want all of that work to get lost in the mail and have no recourse.
