You walk to the mailbox, get the mail, and mixed in with the junk mail, bank statements and bills is a pastel-colored envelope with toy blocks and a teddy bear faintly printed on the paper. Immediately you know that it's an invitation to an upcoming baby shower for your neighbor. Immediately, you start asking yourself things like "What am I going to take as a gift for the baby?" and "Should I take a gift for the baby's big brother?" The answer can be simple with a personalized baby gift basket!
Baby showers are always fun and it's interesting to see in what creative ways other guests present their gifts. If you're running low on ideas, here are a few great baby shower gift suggestions that might come in handy.
If you are concerned about preserving a healthy environment, there are a lot of neat ways to be creative with organic baby gift baskets, centerpieces, and wreaths. By using 100% certified organic cotton, you're protecting the environment from harmful waste and that precious new baby against nasty pesticides, chemicals and synthetics. Gift baskets can be filled with organic clothing such as t-shirts, socks, bibs, onesies, hats, washcloths, towels, and blankets. Top it off with an organic cotton plush stuffed animal that's suitable for a baby and you're all set!
Another creative idea is to ask the hostess if you can supply the centerpiece for the gift table. Your gift can then be a tower of biodegradable chlorine-free disposable diapers in the shape of a 2-tier cake! Wrap each layer with pink or blue ribbons, top the "cake" off with an organic stuffed animal and maybe some environmentally friendly lotions or soaps, and sit back and enjoy the oohs and aahs as other guests admire your gift!
Another way to use organic items as part of your personalized gifts for baby showers is to take a wreath of organic clothing, towels, washcloths, and bibs. The items are color coordinated and individually rolled up to look like roses! Choose from color schemes such as pinks, or blues, or yellows, and the expectant parents can use the wreath to decorate the baby's room until the baby arrives.
If you're into practical gift giving, perhaps you might opt for ideas for newborn gift baskets. If you're planning a gift basket yourself, you might want to fill it with organic towels, washcloths, pacifiers, bottles, nail scissors, and perhaps some lotions and soaps. Diapers are always a good idea as babies go through so many of them!
Okay, so now we have ideas for a gift for the baby shower, but what about a gift for the baby's siblings? It's always a nice gesture to give any siblings a small gift just to let them know they have not been forgotten. After all, their world is about to change and they will have to share their parents and toys, among other things. There are actually toys and books for big brothers and big sisters that help explain what's about to happen in their world. One creative idea is to have matching t-shirts made, one saying "I'm the big brother/sister," and the other saying "I'm the baby." You get the idea. There is so much fun stuff out there. All you need to do is use your imagination.
