When putting together your baby shower gift basket ideas, keep in mind too if there is a sibling involved. The arrival of a new member of the family can be very emotional and traumatic for the older sibling so make sure you keep them in mind. Here are some ideas to include in your basket to make sure they don’t feel left out.

  • T-shirt with a ‘I have a baby brother’ slogan on them
  • Coloring books, crayons, etc
  • Toys
  • Books, magazines etc

There are many ways to keep the entire family involved in the arrival of the new baby. Keeping in mind each member will make the occasion extra special as well. Remember also the new father when concocting unique baby shower gift basket ideas. Some cool stuff you can get him are:

  • A book on fatherhood
  • Magazines, reading material he likes
  • T-shirt with a cute father slogan
  • Gadgets

You then can finish off by decorating your basket to match whatever theme you have going. The idea here is to make the basket appear overflowing so you can stuff some crepe paper at the bottom to create more volume in your basket. Ribbons are also a great idea to complete the appearance of your gift basket. Along with these baby shower gift basket ideas, also remember to get a card with a nicely written message to express your sentiments.
