I’ve been to my fair share of baby showers and baby sprinkles over the years and after 3 kids, I definitely have my favorite gifts to give. When Babbleboxx asked to send me their Toolkit for New Moms, I was so excited to put together a little something for new moms or moms-to-be using all the goodies they included. Here’s a super cute baby shower gift idea + the anatomy of a perfect baby gift basket (or, in this case, bucket!):
Here’s the equation for baby shower basket gift-giving:
something for baby to play with + something for baby to eat + something practical for baby + something to spoil mom
You cannot go wrong including something from each of these categories! Here are a few of my favorite things as an idea:
For ‘something for baby to play with’, I included the O-ball, which is an easy to grasp sensory toy for babies. We’ve had one since Quinn was a baby and I love it because it’s super portable, easy to clean, and even the tiniest of babies can grab it. My older kids, who are now 5 and 3, still like to play with it, so it’s a real MVP in the toy world.
For the ‘something for baby to eat’ category, I included Beech-Nut: Stage 1 Oatmeal Baby Cereal. It’s super portable and includes a built-in measuring cap, which is way convenient. Beech-Nut is a pretty fabulous company with the goal to bring authentic food to our babies. You can save $1.50 on any 2 Beech-Nut cereal canisters through this link.
For the ‘something practical’ category, I included bloom BABY: Wipes, which are AMAZING! They’re perfect for sensitive skin (even eczema!), sturdy and thick, and made with glacial water – fancy! Also in the ‘practical’ category is Mustela Baby Body Lotion – I’m a huge fan of Mustela products and have been since I was pregnant with my first babe.
Finally, you HAVE to include something for the new mom or mom-to-be. They deserve to be spoiled too! I recently discovered Vichy’s Mineral 89 & Auqualia Thermal Rich Cream and they’re an amazing, easy way to look more refreshed and hydrated, even as a sleepless mom. Mineral 89 plumps and hydrates, while Aqualia Cream has mineralizing thermal water and hyaluronic acid to help sensitive skin and boost hydration.
