Baby Shower Gift Basket

Crafting the perfect gift basket for a baby shower is not just about providing essentials; it’s about picking the perfect trinkets for both the parents and the new bundle of joy. The right ingredients with a little personal touch can make your gift truly special. The foundation is a key factor. Picking a study versatile container will allow the parents to potentially repurpose it for a later use (i.e. wicker baskets, fabric tote, or even cute little storage bins). Consider including colors and decor to match to the nursey. You could include items like:

  • Pacifiers 
  • Girl/Boy teddy bears 
  • Blankets 
  • Towels
  • Bibs 
  • Lotions
  • Books 
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Socks
  • Baby bottles 



To add a girly touch, you could incorporate the color pink of course. Some nice homemade bows and barrettes are something that will last your baby girl for a lifetime. Add tons of adorable onesies and cute dresses full of colorful tulle. Don’t forget about the mom-to-be; include some chocolates or candles. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the gesture!

For the handsome little fellas, various shades of blue or green are some of the most common colors. Fill his basket with plenty of books and balls for him to grow into. Maybe even incorporate some custom apparel to show some gratitude to the soon to be father. Personalized keepsakes are the most cherished gifts. 

Valentine's Day Gift Basket

Valentine’s Day is a day that exudes love and happiness. Why not make that smile even brighter with a basket full of your loved one’s favorite items? I guarantee you that a gift basket filled with heartfelt treats will surly warm their hearts. Flowers would be a great touch for the ladies, and for men, their favorite cologne or accessory. Next adorn the basket with gifts that would add joy and enhance some of their happiest moments. Chocolates are a favorite of mine, but in addition to that you could include:

  • Sentimental keepsakes (i.e. handwritten notes or framed photos)
  • Bath bombs 
  • Bathrobes 
  • Slippers 
  • Gift cards for favorite place 
No matter what’s included, I know you’re loved one will love and appreciate the thoughtful gesture.

Christmas Gift Basket

These types of baskets should be the most fun! The holidays are a festive time and a time to show your appreciation through gift giving. Provide comfort on a chilly winter night with varieties of hot cocoas, flavored teas, or spider ciders. Cozy pajamas, plush blankets, and themed mugs are some of my favorite Christmas gifts to have received. Add some festive treats to your basket that show homage to the Christmas season. This like candy canes, gingerbread treats, and even festive garlands for decoration would all add to a beautifully crafted gift basket.

Wine Gift Basket

Wine has long been associated with celebration, relaxation, and good times shared with the people you love. The heart of any wine basket is, of course, the wine itself. Consider including a mix of reds, whites, and maybe even a champagne. Pair you wine with some gourmet goodies like artisanal cheeses and crackers, or even some dried fruits and nuts. Including essentials like corkscrews or wine stoppers would add a touch of sophistication.
