A wonderful gift for new parents is new baby gift baskets. New parents are busy, exhausted, happy people. They are frequently overwhelmed with baby care, and forget to take care of themselves. They also need plenty of baby items, especially diapers! A new baby gift basket can include items for the parents and items for the care of the baby.
The items to include come under different categories. Choose items based on what you want the basket to include, who you want to pamper, and your budget. The categories are:
Once you have decided on and purchased the items you want, choose a container to put them in. A basket is only one option! You can put the items in a container that can be useful to the new parents, such as: baby bathtub, hamper, wastebasket, clothes basket, shower caddy, or large Tupperware box with a lid. Choose a container that is the right size and not too huge or too small for the items you selected. Decorate and/or personalize it with paint pens or puffy paints if you want to make it extra special.
Assemble the largest items in the center in the back of the container. Smaller items go around and in front of the largest ones. Wrap the whole thing in cellophane, a clear gift bag, or colored plastic wrap. Tie it at the top with a twist-tie, and tie a gift ribbon around it. Add a gift card, and it's ready to go!
Movie theme gift baskets are an impressive gift for singles, couples and families. It's easy to control costs with this gift as well, since most of the candy and snacks you'll use for filler can be found at the local supermarket.
One of the great things about making your own gift baskets for women is that you can control the cost and choose basket fillers that have special meaning to the recipient.
