However, you can do your bit in easing the process for the mum by helping her stock on all the various useful items that she will need as she takes care of the baby. And a baby hamper or basket allows you to put in a collection of these items in one attractive gift package.
Things to Put Inside a Newborn Baby Gift Hamper
Commonly, items in a baby gift hamper are meant to be functional and useful ones so that the mum never runs out of essential bay supplies. So, we’re talking about baby care items (organic baby shampoo, oils, lotion, nappies, skincare, wipes, etc.); grooming items (baby nail trimmer, cotton buds, cotton wool, sun hat, hairbrush, sunscreen lotion); cute baby clothes (rompers, socks, wraps, cardigans, booties, onesies, baby grows, gloves, etc.); practical baby gifts (bath gown, bath towels, bibs, baby pacifiers, thermometers, bottles, sponges, etc.); fun toys and accessories (rattles, musical toys, bath toys, activity chains, baby teething rings, cuddly teddies and so on); keepsakes such as popular and useful books (for slightly older babies) like alphabet books, bedtime books, baby board books, etc.; and finally, some great and loving presents for the mum herself.
Now, when selecting your baby gift basket whether you are preparing one on your own or choosing one from a reputed baby hamper company, you may either go for baskets or hampers that are prepared with a variety of products of the same kind such as baby clothes gift basket or pure baby care gift hamper, or you may settle for one that puts in an assortment of different items from across the above categories. Of course, what kind of baby gift basket you choose or what items will go there will also obviously depend on your budget as well.
