A Baby Shower Gift Basket for a Mama-to-Be

The moment I found out I was going to be an auntie I started on my quest for unique items to create a baby shower gift basket for my sister Lauren, the soon-t0-be mama.

I remember the day she found out she was pregnant, I showed up at her doorstep to pick her up for a fun day with my son Jaden, at Disneyland. She opened the door with a huge smile on her face, didn’t say a word, and just held out a positive pregnancy test. Lauren and her husband had been trying on and off again for the past year or so, so it was a big deal when she finally got the smiley face!

Much like her baby shower (which you can view here) I wanted her gift to be useful and unique.

Right away I started collecting adorable items from some of my favorite small shops on Instagram and I really didn’t stop collecting until a few days before her baby shower in January. Since I wanted the gift to be extra useful, I decided to use a tub that was on her baby registry as the ‘basket’ instead of an actual basket. After I got all of the fun items I purchased in the basket, I filled the remaining space will a combination of items from her registry and other useful items such as; diaper rash cream, baby powder, baby oil, wipes etc. I then wrapped it in cellophane with some tissue inside so that you couldn’t see everything in it. To top it off I tied it with a big bow and and a card on my Hello Peanut stationary, in which was clipped on with a clothes pin.
