Still on the topic of baby shower gifts, I thought it would be fun to teach you guys to create your own baby bath gift or a gift basket. I like it because it’s cheaper and more personalized than the ones you find already set at the store. Below is just a guide line of the products that you will need to start the bath gift basket:
• A bathtub
• Baby shower products
• Baby shampoo
• A towel
• A few cloths (2 should be enough)
• Baby bibs
• A teddy bear
• Manicure set
• Hair brushes
• A blanket
• A set of baby grows or baby outfits
You may personalize the bath tub to your taste. Add and removed products, as long as they are fit for a baby. You can actually opt for a basket instead of a bathtub and include other baby products that have nothing to do with bath time.
Because I almost NEVER have time, I preferred ordering a ‘personalized’ gift basket rather than creating my own from scratch. I went to my favorite baby store here in Maputo, SININHO and created a basket fit for a little princess/ prince. Turns out they have a new store at 24 de Julho so it gave me a chance to check it out.
Since it is a 2nd time mommy, I am pretty sure she has almost everything so I decided to buy helpful accessories that she would probably never think off. In the basket I placed a little document pouch, a little bag to put in the manicure set, a dummy holder ( I remember her1st born LOVED his dummy)(yes, I know not all kids are not the same, the dummy holder was just too cute to pass), a little sac to put in a bottle, baby shoes, (because you know she is raising a fashionista)and the basket itself that can be used for storage.
They wrapped it up all nice and pretty free of charge (YAY). It was so much fun giving it .
