Baby Gift Baskets, For The Mom Or Baby Who Has Everything

By Bill Urell

Are you completely lost on what to buy for an expecting mother? Baby gift baskets are always a great choice. Gift baskets can be very practical, providing the new parents with all sorts of goodies and necessities for their baby.They are also a very personal and special way to show proud parents how much you care.

Ever wonder what to get for the expecting mother who has already gone out and bought everything she will need for her child (and probably the next half dozen or so)? Finding gifts for families can be an extremely tough decision. This is especially true if they have planned ahead enough to purchase everything they deem necessary for a child.

While clothing is usually a good safe bet, more women are deciding not to find out whether or not their child will be a boy or a girl until the baby is born. This certainly limits the options for baby clothes, as you would look simply ridiculous if you purchased items for a baby of the wrong sex. There are also issues of style taste and budget, wrong choices may unintentionally offend.

Although countless men and women are confused about what type of gift to purchase for newborns and expecting mothers, more and more smart friends are turning to baby gift baskets.

Baby gift baskets are essentially specialty gift baskets, like the ones available for adults. These, however, contain a variety of baby products such as, photo albums, toys, pacifiers, onesies, bottles, and teething toys. You can purchase baby gift baskets for anywhere between twenty five dollars and upwards into the hundreds of dollars, so there is a product and wide variety of choices available for virtually anyones price bracket.

From gender specific to unisex, every type of basket is represented, making them perfect gifts for any type of expecting mother or newborn child. Also, you can even purchase specialty baskets or custom baby gift baskets, which make perfectly personalized gifts that are tailor-made just for that new newborn in your life. More expensive gift baskets come chock full of toys, games, photo albums and some even come with their own carrying carts that are modeled after famous wagons and baby carriages.

At the other end of the price range, the lower end baby gift baskets come with puppets, small stuffed animals and maybe a set of clothes or two. No matter how much you spend, however, a baby gift basket is a unique gift that the parents of the newborn child will treasure forever.

Baskets can also be put together with a theme. As an example you could give a basket consisting of only natural products for mom and baby. However you look at it gift baskets are clever and safe gift choices.

Tina Barry's Retailers' Hot Picks For Summer 2007 Shopping

Tina Barry's
Retailers' Hot Picks for Summer 2007 Shopping - Part IV

Jacqueline Oddo, who launched TAYLOR'S BABY in January 2006, knows how hard it is to find a unique gift. To aid buyers looking for that perfect something, she says, "The majority of our line is hand painted and handcrafted by top artisans and custom made to order in the U.S. Most of our designers are parents themselves who "Mom test" all their creations."
Take a beautifully made T-shirt, sprinkle it with rhinestones and a cheeky saying, and you've got a "Hot Pick" on Oddo's site. Designed exclusively for Taylor's Baby by Rhinestone Fashions, the tees (sizes 2T-5, $28-$32) available in pink, black or white "have been selling unbelievably," says Oddo. Order yours with sayings like "Move over Cinderella," "Move over Barbie," and "Move over Snow White" to usher in the next feminine icon.

You may need a second mortgage on your house to pay for this one, but a gift from Le Petite Maison is worth it. Each playhouse is custom built to the buyer's specifications. "Whether a log cabin for your little adventurer, a castle for your princess, a favorite doll house that she can play in or even his or her own replica of Mommy and Daddy's home, these luxurious playhouses will create the childhood memories of a lifetime," says Oddo. At $18,000, you'll expect a great resale value, too. The Victorian Playhouse shown, features a wrap-around front porch, scrollwork accents and a real bay window.
