You are in the process of buying that extra special gift hamper or goodies for an expectant mother when it hits you – you’re stuck for ideas! There are so many things you can buy and the luxury of choice makes it extremely hard, paradoxically, to actually choose something! It is really important you choose something that will be very helpful to the expecting mom or something that will help make the baby’s life more comfortable in the first few months.

This article will look over some great ideas you can incorporate into a baby gift hamper so you can present the mom-to-be with the ultimate surprise. Thinking about what would be helpful in the nursery is a great place to start when collecting goodies for the hamper. Some great things that could go inside are:

1) Little cute clothes! – If you are a fan of walking into the baby section of any clothes store and musing over all the super small cute clothes, you are not the only one! Picking out some lovely outfits for the newborn can be a great addition to any hamper. If you go down this route, think about the various settings where the child will wear the clothes. For example, they might need some bodysuits or wraparound vests for playtime. Alternatively you can buy some smart going out clothes or cute nightwear for them to snuggle up in.

2) Skincare – Skin care for the baby can include a range of things but buying something wholesome and organic will really light up the expecting moms face. Going the extra mile to source something with no ‘nasties’ in will show you have thought things through and are looking out for the baby. Plus, it will add a splash of luxury to the baby gift hamper. If you want to keep the parents in the loop too, then why don’t you add in some special skincare items for the whole family to use? They will love it!

3) Toys – Toys always go down a treat. As long as the expecting parents have places to store them, babies will never get bored of new toys. So you can experiment with this one and ensure your hamper has some quirky toys that don’t get too annoying for the parents. You can choose cute fluffy teddy bears and other soft toys, bringing your hamper to life with some friendly faces to entertain the little one with.

4) Nursery furniture – Thinking about some all-important items in the nursery can help complete the baby hamper. For example, you might want to buy some blankets to keep the baby warm at night. Or some practical equipment the parents will find very helpful such as a room thermometer or a baby radio listening device. We are sure that anything you think of will go down a treat with the expecting mom and dad. As long as it is handy for both the baby and the parents, you can be sure it will make a great addition to the baby hamper. 

So now we have discussed some of the key items you can add to the gift hamper, you will know exactly what to look for.
