Baby Birthday Gift Basket Ideas: 3 Ideas
Know a baby who has a birthday coming up? You undoubtedly want to get him or her something special. The ideal baby gift will please not only the baby, but at least as importantly the whole family.
In fact, if you are shopping for a gift for a newborn or a one-year-old, what goes inside the gift should definitely take mom and dad's needs into account, as well. If you are looking for baby birthday gift basket ideas, here are 3 ideas:
1. Dinner food basket for mom and dad:
You moms and stay-at-home dads out there will relate to this: after a super-busy day watching baby, doing a bit of cleaning, and maybe some shopping, the last thing you want to do is to make dinner.
For the baby and his or her family, why not give them a dinner food basket? A good one will have all of the fixings for 1-2 complete dinners. Pasta dinners are a great choice, but anything that will not perish after a week or more will be well-received; you never know when the family will want to partake in the delicious food in your basket.
Wait, you say: this gift is no fun for the baby! Well, think about this: with a happier, more rested mom and dad at home, baby gets a more patient, happy parent. And that could be the best gift of all.
2. Baby care basket:
Another way to help out mom and dad is with a baby care basket. You can include items like diapers, baby powder, rash ointment, bibs, a blanket, a pacifier and a rattle. Worried they already have all of this stuff? If you have ever been a parent, you know how quickly all of these items can be soiled, used up, or lost. It is always good to have more on standby.
3. Baby learns basket:
For the 1-3 year old, how about a baby learns basket? You can put age-appropriate books, CDs, toys and DVDs into the basket. If you choose to include CDs and DVDs, make sure that the family owns players. At least with a CD, if nothing else the family can play it while in the car.
