Recently a lot of my friends are getting pregnant as first-time parents. I am so happy for them, and instead of giving gift cards or buying things off their registry or buying more clothes that the baby would outgrow in a month, I opted to put together a package of mostly handmade items.
This is a baby boy gift basket but it also works as an unconventional baby girl gift, because not who says girls have to wear pink, right?
|ONE| Lamb Bonnet (pattern & instruction via Purl Soho)
|TWO|Fabric Bin (instruction here but with a smaller size)
|THREE| Chill Teethers (via Babies R Us)
|FOUR| Photo Frame (something similar via Babies R Us)
|FIVE| Infant Sleeping Bag (purchase here)
|SIX| Burp Cloth / Blinkie
|SEVEN| Pacifier Clips (instruction here)
|EIGHT| Ombre-dyed Muslin Swaddle Blanket (instruction here)
If you handmade any gift items, remember to attach a simple caring instruction for a more personal touch. When you put everything together, it makes a great gift basket!
