I wanted to create a gift basket that was a green but gender neutral aesthetic for baby showers. New mom’s right now are all about aesthetics and all natural, minimalist products for their babies so I wanted to save you the time of searching for the best products by creating one page with a perfect basket or gift bag already sourced and verified to be a mom and baby favorite! This gift basket totals around $70 making it a perfect price point.
You can put this gift basket together in an actual basket, or just wrap it in cute tissue paper in a gift bag. Go to your local craft store with a coupon to find a basket, or order one online from Amazon.
What to put inside
When thinking about a gift basket for a baby shower, you have to include items for mom and baby. Great gifts are items that will be used and are needed, so if there is a registry, great! If you are going to freestyle, there is no registry, or you are giving the basket right after baby arrives, this is perfect for you! I included items that are functional, but a bit more expensive, something many mom’s might balk at buying for themselves, but getting them as a gift is perfect. They are high quality, made of natural materials, and some are handmade!
This bib from Gathre is $14, but so cute! It is super high quality too. Gathre makes leather goods and they are functional, minimal, and beautiful. They are a fan favorite on Instagram right now!
Books are such a great gift. Reading is so important for growth and development, and they the sentiment in the baby board books are always so sweet. This one is The Runaway Bunny, an old favorite, and has been publishing since the 1940’s! It is also only $5!
THis handmade toy is $11.99 and ships for just a few dollars. It is a Montessori toy and wooden. Plus this toy is handmade and supports a small business. It is beautiful, perfect for a gift basket of any color, and will be used!
