How to Make Your Own Baby Gift Baskets

By Daniel Millions

When a new mom has her baby, it is ideal to give her a gift she'll truly enjoy. Often the new mom receives duplicates or even triplicates of some gifts and these gifts are simply not as appreciated as others. A unique and creative idea for a baby gift is to give a gift basket with a fun theme.

There are many great themes for a baby gift basket. The very best gift basket theme keeps both the baby and the new mom in mind. Certainly, there are many different likes and tastes to please. A gift basket is a great way to give anyone lots of little treats instead of a larger gift. It is also a fun way to package several gifts.

Organic Baby Gift Basket. Many moms are turning to organic products for their babies. Organic cotton clothing and diapers are popular choices. Organically produced shampoo, lotion and other baby products are also ideal. An excellent idea for this baby gift basket are small sizes of organic baby food products any new mom would be sure to appreciate. A book about living organic would be a great introduction to the organic lifestyle if the new mom needed more information.

Baby Toys Gift Basket. Every mom knows that an active baby is a happy baby! A happy baby means a happy mommy! Moms love to find great ways to keep their babies active. There are lots of great toys that babies love that would make a wonderful baby toys basket. Fill this basket with stuffed animals, a mobile and toys that will keep that adorable baby happily occupied.

Baby Books Gift Basket. There is nothing like getting your child started on a love of books at an early age. Children that grow up reading grow up more confident about school and learning. Bill Clinton once said on this exact subject, "Readers are leaders." Fill a baby gift basket with great baby books. What is so popular with babies and moms today are board books. These books are sturdy and will stand up to being tossed or chewed or anything else that a baby just might do to a book. Some popular baby books include Goodnight Moon and Green Eggs and Ham.

Pampering Mom and Baby Gift Basket. This is a great gift basket idea to keep both the new mom and baby very happy. Giving birth can be both an exciting and very stressful time. A gift basket filled with little treats for both mom and baby shows that you are encouraging this new mom to take good care of herself too. We all know that some moms will put themselves at the very bottom of the list and never take care of their own needs.

A gift certificate for a massage, chocolates or a good romance novel could be great ideas for the new mom. The baby would love a soothing baby lotion ideal for nighttime. There are nighttime baby lotions with lavender and chamomile that encourage the baby to lull them to sleep. A CD of lullabies would be a lovely gift. A handwritten note promising to babysit is a gift that would please both mom and baby!

Gift baskets make a wonderful gift, especially for the new mom and her baby. This is a great way to give a creative and very personal gift. You can often find pretty baskets, cellophane and satin ribbons at your local craft store. These items will easily "dress" any basket and make it look so beautiful for that new baby gift.
