The start of a new year and coming into spring time is a very busy period at BasketsGalore as we begin creating, designing and photographing new ranges of gift baskets. One of my favourite ranges to see new additions to is the baby gift basket range.
We were getting more requests for unisex/neutral baby gift baskets and so our purchasing team had concentrated their efforts on sourcing more neutral products to be included in this range. Neutral baby baskets are popular as baby shower/maternity gifts when the gender of the baby is unknown, but some people also prefer them to the obvious pink or blue choices even when the gender is known. I suppose it means the clothes could be reused should a little brother or sister make an appearance!
Nature's Purest organic clothes are perfect for our gender neutral baby baskets as they have such a great variety in naturally coloured cotton. As well as the baby bodysuits, sleepsuits, dungarees and pinafore sets we already stocked, we added some new items from their range. These included more clothes, muslin squares and blankets such as the Tiny Bunny Muslin Gift Set, Teddy & Ele Cuddle Robe, Sleepytime Gift Set, Bunny Booties and Silk Blanket & Knitted Bunny, Jungle Safari 4 Piece Layette Gift Set, Teddy & Ele Teddy Bear Comfort Blankie, Sleepy Safari Bathrobe & Slippers and Velour Blanket & Bunny Comforter. All their items are also organic, which makes them perfect for sensitive baby skin.
The team also sourced some gender neutral versions of our best selling comforter blankies. The original teddy versions by RUSS came in pink, blue and beige, but then the new Suki version only came in blue or pink. Luckily the team sourced frog, ducks and bunny ones by GUND Baby which suit either a baby boy or girl. We also added monkey chime toys, puppy rattles, monkey & lion booties, Cuddly Cub teddy & Floppity Bunnies by GUND Baby. Baby's 1st Teddy Bear & the Baby Triple "My First Tooth, Curl" Gift Box Set are by Suki Gifts.
These unisex goodies are then combined with non-gender specific items such as baby skincare, skincare for mum, chocolates, champagne and drinking chocolate to create a fantastic neutral baby gift basket.
I've included some examples from this new range below. We hope you enjoy cooing over them!
