Gift of toys that create happiness.
A fantastic example of new baby gift baskets is a collection of toys. Some newborn toys including teething rings, a crib mobile, a couple of different rattles are also good options.

What about giving items made from organic products?
A new baby basket filled with organic gifts is a great way to usher the baby into a harsh environment, especially nowadays when organic living is taking precedence. The items to include in the basket are organic baby shampoo and lotion, organic diapers and organic cotton clothing. Adding organic baby food would also be a good way to start off the baby nutritionally. Books on organic living for the mother can also be included in the new baby basket.

New baby gift baskets are not restricted to the baby alone; the mother would certainly appreciate a basket full of treats to help her take care of herself. Some romance novels, chocolate, payment for a massage and a CD of lullabies to help the baby sleep will all go a long way to help the mother.
Finding the right gift.
Finding baby gifts for boys has never been easier. There are beautiful sock sets for boys, rompers, long-johns and toys for them. All these can be personalized by having the baby’s name embroidered onto the clothes and engraved onto the toys. Baby girls can benefit from customized soft blankets, bracelets, cross necklaces and bangles.

Before delivery, the baskets can be made beautifully by adorning them with satin ribbons and cellophane.
