Easy Baby Shower Gift Idea

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

baby shower giftWith baby items on my mind (being pregnant baby items are always on my mind), I thought I would take the time to post about a baby shower gift idea that I gave to a friend several months ago. I started searching Pinterest for awhile for ideas, but I couldn’t find the perfect gift basket idea for my friend’s shower. So, I decided to forget Pinterest and hit Target up to make up my own idea!

First, I stopped by the home section to find cheap basket, bin, or container that would be a perfect fit for a small gift basket. The great thing about this container is that it is a gift in itself and a cute one at that! The size of the bin you want, will depend on how much you are planning on buying.

My friend was having a boy and it was her 4th baby so I wanted to get some gifts that were practical and needed for a 4th little one. I also wanted to go with the “boy” theme so I tried to find items that were blue to match my theme! I found a 3 pack of onesies that were super cute and put them in my cart.

Next, I went to look through the baby soaps and creams. What mom has enough of those? I know I don’t! I found some blue mini baby bubble bath and wash and put those in my cart also. I looked through the creams and the desitin had blue in it to go with my theme. Plus, I love the desitin ointment it’s my favorite!

No gift basket would be complete without diapers, so I grabbed a small pack of newborn diapers and left to go to the gift and card section. I grabbed a card that I felt would be perfect for the occasion, found a pretty blue bow, and some blue tissue paper. After that, I was good to go and went home to assemble my gift basket!

As you can see from the picture above, I put my one piece of tissue paper in the container first. Then I added my sealed card, followed by the diapers and then organized the ointment, wash, and onesies in front. I topped it all off with the bow in the front which I attached with a little bit of tape!

  1. I love this – and that you made a thoughtful, much needed gift! I love doing this, buying one or 2 small things on the registry and adding things I know mama’s are going to need. Like Gripe Water. And Boogie Wipes…and you know, real stuff!

    1. So glad you liked it! I love gifts like that as well, both personal and helpful. And it helps when you’re already a mama and know which things help the most! By the way love the gripe water, we have been using it with my daughter! Thanks for commenting. 🙂
