Newborn baby gift baskets come in all different shapes and sizes. If you know someone who is about to have a baby, a gift basket is a wonderful way to let mother and baby know how much you care. Before deciding on what type of basket you want to purchase, first find out if the mother is having a boy, girl, twins, triplets, etc. Knowing this will also help aid in your selection.
Knowing the sex of the baby is not always possible. In that case, you can always stick to purchasing a neutral newborn gift. Since color is a huge factor, refrain from selecting any pinks or blues until you are certain of the sex of the child. If the mother is having a little girl, be sure to purchase a basket composed of lots of frills, pinks, yellows, lavenders and white along with some stuffed animals and other cute girly decorations.
If the mother is having a boy, choosing light blues, whites, yellows, browns, and greens would be an acceptable option. Trucks, tractors, cars, spaceships, frogs, etc. are all great decorations for a boy's gift.
The last thing you want to do is ask the mother-to-be for her opinion. The key to making newborn baby gift baskets a huge surprise is to simply keep it that way – a surprise. The only thing you should be sure of is the sex of the child and how many there will be.
From there, consider the amount of money you have available to spend. Fortunately, you can find decorative baskets loaded down with goodies for less than $ 100.00. Many cost much less than $ 100.00 – the choice is extremely up to you as to how much you spend.
Think about where you want to shop. Before rushing out to your near store, consider shopping online. Most local areas do not carry gift baskets and if they do, the prices are outrageous. Online, you will find varieties that contain all baby's bare essentials and more for a decent price.
Most are centered around a theme. Some of them include nothing more than a few stuffed animals, some picture frames, and diapers, while others include the entire package – diapers, wipes, rubber duckies, picture frames, bottles, and much more.
There are also gift baskets that provide nothing more than simple gifts that baby does not need unnecessarily, but are still unique just as well. These types of gifts may include candles, custom-made silverware, and other "knick-knacks" that make for wonderful decoration in the baby's room.
The most fun thing about purchasing newborn baby gift baskets is that there are tons of baskets to choose from. You'll find baskets containing towels, teddy bears, blankets, booties, keepsake hangers, socks, burp clothes, caps, rattlers, teeth rings and much more.
