Gift Baskets for a New Parent

Personal Care Basket

It is common for a new parent to focus so much of their time and energy into their new baby, often forgetting about themselves. Giving the parent a basket full of items for just them is a thoughtful way to let that new parent know it’s okay to pamper themselves. 

There are so many options out there now for personal care! If you want this basket to be focused on bath products, include items such as bath bombs, bath salts, bubble bath, a new sponge, lotions, a bathrobe, or slippers. A food and drink basket is another idea for a new parent. This can include their favorite wine or liquor as well as nice chocolates, cookies, cheeses, or nuts.

Baby Gift Basket

From an endless number of diapers and wipes to clothes and toys, there are so many items a new parent will need. Babies grow so quickly. Even if a parent is fully prepared for a newborn baby, the next stage will come quickly and there will be something else they need. 

There are many different types of baby gift baskets you can put together. One idea is to make a basket full of grooming essentials. This can include diapers and wipes as well as baby lotion, burping cloths, or baby shampoo.

Another really fun gift basket idea for a new parent would be a clothing gift basket. This can range from essentials such as basic zip-up footed pajamas and onesies to a special occasion dress or nice outfit. Include some accessories such as hair bows and cute socks, and you can help the new parent create a complete outfit for their baby!
