8 Reasons To Buy A Gift Basket For A Baby Shower


Your friend announced she was pregnant months ago and now the baby shower is just around the corner! What are you going to get your friend? You’ve seen the babies new room. It’s totally decked out with all the latest gear. What is it that your friend needs?

A good way to get around the confusion is to buy a gift basket. Gift baskets contain thoughtful, unique necessities that will be well appreciated. Check out our reasons for choosing a gift basket.

1. You live overseas and have no idea what your friend needs or wants. Having a gift delivered is the perfect way to say you care.

2. You live next door and have no idea what your friend needs or wants. Sometimes, new parents are so organised they have the entire nursery stocked full of gear in anticipation of bubs arrival. A gift basket says ‘Happy Baby Shower’ and you can include items that are always needed, like baby shampoo, soft toys and cute onesies.

3. Sometimes parents aren’t so organised and they need to stock up their nursery STAT! Gift items like toys, clothing (bibs, hats, nappies) and change mats will not go amiss.

4. ‘Repeat’ parents may be all stocked up on baby goods and a gift basket with tea and chocolates will be well received.

5. Parents who have more than three children will love you forever for a gift basket with chocolates, champagne and relaxing bath salts.

6. Choose organic goodies for your gift basket and REALLY impress your friend with your thoughtful nature and environmentally conscious shopping prowess.

7. Gift baskets contain multiple items. It’s fun to get a present that’s not just one present but many!

8. Buy handmade and support Australian businesses. Whisper the good news in your friends ear so she can feel good about her gifts too!

In keeping with our theme, our recycled boxes have been emblazoned with our logo in bronze.

We try to have a green approach to our business as it’s important for us (and our customers too) to be environmentally friendly. This resulted in using brown, cardboard boxes which contain 70% recycled material. We also use wood wool to pack our gift hampers which is made from wood shavings from farmed trees. Wood wool is 100% biodegradable.

The brown boxes have a really great natural feel to them but needed a splash of colour. Our logo has lots of different colours in it and we like to keep with a beachy, fresh feel. Also, you really want the recipient to feel that they are special so we use luxurious wrapping paper cut in strips about 15cm wide. These wrap right around our gift boxes and are joined at the back with a piece of double-sided tape. We also place a sticker here with our logo on it for extra reinforcement.

Next, I like to choose a ribbon colour depending on the occasion. For baby gift boxes, pink, blue or something pretty and neutral. For settlement gifts, something classic and luxurious looking. For birthday gifts always add a nice bright colour that’s a bit fun.

Attached to the ribbon is a gift tag with our logo on it. I make these by hand from unique looking card which you can buy at many local stores. Try buying card with different colours on each side. On one side, I place our logo and on the other a simple message about our business practices: green, local, organic etc. Just to let the recipient know they are receiving something that is Australian made and has been made with love and care.
