Baby Gift Baskets As Baby Shower Gifts

baby shower gift basketsIs there a new bundle of joy on the way? The feelings that surround a pregnancy or the birth of a new baby are feelings of joy and excitement.

Do you need a creative baby gift to give mother or baby?

Baby showers are given to symbolize a celebration of the expected arrival of a new life. Baby showers are usually filled with excitement, fun and include lots of games, gifts and giggles! Perhaps the only perplexing things that family and friends would find about them is the one surrounding the actual baby shower gift. For example... what to give (luxury or necessity), whom to direct it to (for mom or the baby), what package design would be best (fun, sweet, babyish). Also, how much to give, meaning what is the appropriate amount of money to spend on the gift.

A baby gift basket is a great way to package the things you want to give the new arrival. It can be designed and adorned with a variety of packaging, but the idea of the baby basket itself will always be something relating to a new baby. Fill your baby basket with small items from the gift registry. Mix and match your items. You could even purchase a more expensive gift for the main attraction and then surround that item with smaller ones, such as, wipes, bottles or burp rags. It is natural to wonder about whether the expectant parents would appreciate necessary items over luxury ones, or vice versa.

Luxury baby shower gifts are gifts that do not necessarily ease the burden over baby needs, but are gifts that a baby will enjoy having. This can include baby toys, like the ones they stare at when you dangle these items in front of them or over the baby crib. There are also baby chairs, such as the swinging ones, that babies can easily sleep in.

Necessary baby shower gifts, on the other hand, are the ones that can cater to what the baby will actually need. The most common of this kind of gift are baby clothes. Expectant parents will surely appreciate receiving baby clothes since it lessens the burden of having to shop for them. However, one thing to take note about in giving baby clothes is the natural inclination of every other person attending the baby shower to give clothes. Usually, people give clothes that would fit a baby in its first six months. The problem, then, is that parents can be saddled with more clothes than needed for the first six months of the baby's life, only to be unused after this duration. It is probably best to give baby clothes that can still be used even when the baby grows a bit older than six months of age. Other baby necessities include baby powder, diapers, baby bath items, utensils and such.

Baby gift baskets can be designed with a chosen theme. But what theme would be best? The determination of that decision would rely on what you know about the baby's parents. Are the expectant parents an outgoing couple? Then perhaps they would appreciate a fun and flavorful design. Are they of the practical sort? Maybe they would relate more with a design that is simpler or more direct. The distinction between what to design and what not to will always be based on what you think the recipients would go for. Also, be sure to spend a little extra on the container or basket so that it is suitable to use afterwards for storage of baby items.

Baby showers are wonderful. They are a happy, as well as a helpful, event for expectant parents. After all, the new baby gifts they would receive will lessen the burden of having to start from scratch in picking out and buying baby accessories. Just make sure your baby gift reflects you as well as the tastes of the new parents.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
