Making Baby Girl Gift Baskets and Chocolates

Baby showers are a great time for friends to get together and share in the wonderful experience of welcoming a new baby into the world. Baby showers bring with them the need for a gift. There are so many options and chooses it can seem difficult to decide just what exactly to buy. One of the newer, popular ideas are gift baskets. A good example is a baby girl gifts baskets and chocolates. This is for a person who knows they are having a baby girl, of course, and it adds in chocolates as a special treat for mom.

Gift baskets are a personalized gift that shows the giver took time and effort to create the gift. There are pre-made gifts, but for an extra special touch a person can quickly make their own. This option is also usually less expensive then buying a pre-made basket. The following outlines the steps to making a nice baby girl gift basket with the additional ‘just for mom’ chocolates.

1. Choose a basket. This can be either a real basket or just some sort of container that is large enough to hold all of the items.

2. Choose the items. For a baby girl there will most likely be many pink items. A person can also go with a theme, like bath time. It is important to choose a variety of items so they look nice in the basket and provide a visual display.

3. Choose a filler. Filler is basically the stuff that goes in the bottom of the basket to “fluff” it up and make the items stand out.

4. Assembly. Putting the basket together is a little artistic. The items should be arranged so they can be easily identified and seen. Nothing should be buried or hidden. It is nice to have a display that is higher in the back and shorter in the front.

5. Covering the basket. Most people use cellophane to cover the basket. It is really a matter of preference about covering the basket, as uncovered can be fine as well.

When adding the chocolates it is a good idea to keep them away from clothing items or other items that could get stained if the chocolate package should leak. The chocolates chosen should be plain or the mother’s favorite, if known.

Making baby girl gift baskets and chocolates is a breeze with these five easy steps. Now a gift giver can put together a gift that shows they care. They can showcase their handy skills and make the new mother’s day.
