What’s so special about gifts made for newborns? Here’s why baby gift baskets get extra-special care.

A wonderful welcome to the world

Almost everyone knows someone who’s having a baby (you know someone, right?). That fact makes baby gift baskets a year-round gift whether made for a friend or a customer.

Gifts for babies are so popular that many gift basket makers specialize in creating baby gift baskets, which are made with help from another definitive article on making gift baskets.

Products that make sure baby gift baskets get extra-special care

If this life-changing event is something you also want to make, here are products to consider including:

  • Nail clippers
  • Soaps, powders, lotions
  • Bottles and scrubber
  • Comb and brush
  • Bank (think college!)
  • Picture frame
  • Bibs
  • Socks
  • Kimono
  • Blanket
  • Night light
  • Mobile toy
  • Lock of hair container
  • Hangers
  • Lullaby CD
  • Plush animals
  • First tooth pillow

Organic and eco-friendly products are at the top of parents’ list, so be sure to choose items with care. If you make gift baskets for your business, companies listed in the customized 100+ Wholesale Suppliers list easily uncover products close to your U.S. location.

A dish and cup with “Baby’s First Birthday” inscribed on both items are two of my favorite gift basket products, and parents love displaying the pair so they have something new for the child 12 months later.

What about mom, dad, and the container?

The newborn is the focus for this gift basket. However, it’s appropriate to also include items for the new parents. Moms appreciate tummy lotion, and snacks of any kind keep dads happy.

When it’s time to create this welcome-to-the-world gift, consider starting with a container that celebrates the occasion. There’ nothing wrong with baskets, but what about:

  • Large wicker baby bootie
  • Moses basket (shown in photo)
  • Hamper
  • Washing tub
  • Baby travel bag

This is one gift that expands your imagination!

As you make the gift basket, remember that the final result does not have to be huge, as the one shown above in the photo. You can make a gift basket with three or four items. It’s the sentiment that counts, not the size of the gift.
