Generating your checklist of baby needs is one of the joys of your first pregnancy. Baby needs range from absolute necessities to the “nice to have” items on the baby registry checklist. Generating your baby registry checklist adds excitement to the remaining months of waiting for the brand new arrival. Baby departments at many stores often create a large list of items, some of which may not be necessary for your particular baby shopping checklist. Your friends love to vicariously relive that first baby excitement, so have them help you to create that new baby checklist. Here are some of the basic items in categories of “necessary” and “nice to have.”

Baby Shower Gift Baskets

Baby Shower Gift Baskets

Giving personalized baby shower gift baskets is a caring and unique way to share in the joy of new motherhood. Baby shower gift baskets can be filled with a wild variety of items or can adhere to a specific theme.

How to make a Baby Shower Gift Baskets

Once you have found a gift basket that you like begin to decorate the basket with pastel colored ribbons. For a baby bath-time basket line the basket with baby bath towels instead of tissue paper. Add baby bath products such as baby shampoo, wash cloths, baby lotion, baby powder, wash cloth puppets, a rubber duckie and so on. A sleep-time baby shower gift basket can be filled with a soft blanket, baby-safe stuffed animals, baby monitor, crib sheets, a soothing music collection, and a musical mobile. A breastfeeding gift basket could include a breast pump, handy meal plans for nursing moms, a nursing cover and a nursing pillow.

Other Baby Shower Gift Baskets Ideas

Another baby shower gift basket idea can be based on baby clothing. No baby can ever have enough clothes.  You might offer some starter items that you think the mother would like and that would be comfortable for the baby as well. Vitamins Baby Clothing has several multiple-piece sets that contain matching items that new mothers need. I just went to a baby shower where the parents wanted to be surprised by the baby’s gender. A children’s boutique gift certificate allows the mother to pick up something special once the baby is born…a gift that keeps on giving.

Baby Shower Gifts

Giving baby shower gifts is a tradition dating back to the early 1900’s where friends and family would throw a “shower” in much the same way they would for a bridal shower; to “shower” the woman with gifts before her big day. In the early tradition, baby shower gifts were homemade by the guests.

Baby shower gift ideas can be made easy by organizing around �baby time.� The idea is to assign each guest a certain “time” of day in the babies life; for example, story time, bath time bedtime, feeding time etc. the guests then bring items relating to that time including books, bottles blankets…whatever. This keeps the new mom from having duplicates of different things.

Baby Shower Centerpieces

Here are the supplies you will need.

� Approximately 50 diapers
� Platter
� Scissors
� Baby bottle
� Candy (to go inside the bottle)
� Baby accessories, such as pacifiers and toys
� 70 feet of narrow ribbon
� 8 feet of wide ribbon
� tape

Begin by rolling the diapers from the open end to the middle. Secure each diaper with the narrow ribbon. Make a circle of approximately 25 diapers. Secure them together with the wide ribbon. Repeat this for the second layer of the cake using 15 diapers. Secure the diapers with a wide ribbon and place on top of the first layer. Secure the top layer to the bottom with rolled tape. Now, take the bottle which has been filled with candy and secure five diapers around it. Use this as the top layer. Once again secure it with tape. A small stuffed toy or animal would be the perfect topping.

This will look very special as the centerpiece or on the gift table. If you know the gender of the baby then you can accessorize accordingly. For baby shower gift ideas visit www.treasureboxkids.com, where you will find adorable baby clothes at discount prices.
