Step 1: List what you want to gift

The first and foremost thing you need to do while preparing a baby basket is to make a list of things you want to gift. Do not prepare the list in a hurry as you will end up in enlisting run of the mill products. Take your time to go slow on this listing. Prepare the list at least a month in advance so that you do not miss out on any essential things that you might have wished to include in the basket but forgot to do so in an hurry.

Step 2: Shop for the products

When you plan to shop for the products for your baby basket, do not buy all the stuffs in a single day. That will be exhausting for you. Moreover, you might miss out on something and include other unnecessary stuffs too due to shortage of time. Take your time to shop for smaller number of things each day you plan to go for marketing for your baby basket. Do not think of the conventional baby basket gifts like diapers, baby clothes, blankets, wipes, etc. These will only make the would be parents bored with loads of identical things on the occasion. Prioritize the necessities of the baby instead. Think of smaller but essential things like bottle brushes, nail clippers, pacifiers, bibs, digital thermometer, sipper cup, feeding bottles with extra nipples, etc. These are the things the new parents seem to overlook when they shop for their own baby. So your baby basket will be of great help for them when required.

Step 3: Get hold of the basket

Now that you know the types of gifts and their sizes, you can buy the perfect basket to accommodate all your stuffs. Do not buy a basket that is so large that the things inside it appear less. On the other hand, a smaller basket will seem to overflow. Opt for a light weighted basket that is easy to carry.

Step 4: Decorate the basket

Cover the basket with brightly colored velvet paper. Wrap the handle with satin ribbon. Now, put all the stuffs you have bought inside the basket and cover it with a transparent cellophane paper. Over the cellophane covering put a netting fabric which is also brightly covered. You can also decorate this fabric with sequins and spangles. Finally, put a medium sized soft toy over the basket and attach it firmly with cello tape and pins.
