A personalized gift hamper is the best to bring to a baby shower. If you know any new parents in town and don’t know what gift to bring when you go to see their baby, choose your customized baby hamper today from Milly & Henry.
Hampers can either be premade or you can make it yourself. Pre-made hampers are often better packaged but hampers that you make yourself are a little more personal. This is because you know exactly what the recipient likes or needs. Also, it’s so much fun putting together different items for a hamper.
How to make the best baby gift basket
You are planning on vising a friend or family member who just had a baby. But you don’t know what gift to get for the newborn. You also don’t want to get the impersonalized gifts that are easily available online. What do you do next? Here are some guidelines to help you create the perfect gift hamper for the baby:
- Pick a theme
This is the most important step as it guides you on what to buy and helps keep you on track. There are so many items that you could potentially buy for a newborn. Working with a theme makes the hamper easy to plan and put together.
Picking a theme will also help you coordinate the colors. Again, the theme reflects the occasion. For example, a baby hamper will be different from Valentine’s Day hamper.
- Start with a good container
Go for something that not only looks great but is easy to reuse or repurpose. Keep in mind that there are more attractive containers in the market that meet these criteria and aren’t just in brown.
Different types of containers that you can use include a basket, gift box, gift bag, tote bag, a decorated shoebox, a wooden crate, planters, metal buckets, or a handmade cardboard box.
- Take off the price tag
The recipients don’t need to know how much the gifts cost no matter how expensive they are and you’d like them to find out. If they do some research and find out the prices on their own that’s okay.
- Wrap the hamper nicely
Whether or not you wrap the gift depends on what type of container you used. For some containers like crates, there’s no need to do the wrapping.
Cellophane is the most common wrapping used because it’s transparent. If you want to avoid using cellophane, you could use other options such as recycled fabric or tea towels especially if there’s food involved.
- Decorate the hamper
Now it’s time to finish of the hamper nicely. Do so by tying a ribbon on the handles of the basket.
The good thing about ribbons is that they can be reused so it’ll come in handy later on.
A personalized hamper is useful because it contains exactly what the recipient needed. So much goes into making the perfect gift basket. The best part about it all is the look on the recipient’s face once they get the thoughtful gift. The level of personalization makes him/her feel loved and valued. They will surely appreciate the effort that you put into making the gift basket.
