Baby Girl Gift Basket

Updated on April 20, 2010

Newborn Baby Girl Gift

When you hear that a friend, family member, or co-worker is having a baby, it can be hard to decide what to get because you know that there's going to be a baby shower. You want to make sure that you get something that is going to be useful and something that they won't end up with hundreds of.

Diapers and wipes are always good because you know the parents will need them, but it's kind of a bland gift. It's a great gift that is very useful, but sometimes you want to give something that's a little more cute.

You don't have to spend a lot to get a lot, and you don't have to search for ever for the perfect gift. The first thing you should try to do is find out what if the baby will be a girl or boy. Then figure out the colors. Some mom's don't want their little girl to have all pink things. There are other colors that can still be girly, such as yellow, purple, teal, and even green.

When searching for the best newborn girl shower gift, you can consider the basic gifts such as onesies, shirts, dresses, booties, caps, plush animals, soft blankets, bibs, bottles, teething toys, and baby bottles. If you can't choose just one and you're still under budget, pick a few things. The items will definitely be needed and used, especially bibs and onesies.

If you want to make the baby shower gift more unique, try to have it personalized. You can purchase personalized items, but just remember babies grow fast and quick. They won't be using the personalized bib or shirt for long. Personalized diaper bags are much more long-lasting, but can be expensive. You can find personalized baby dolls, plush animals, blankets, bottles, and other items can be longer lasting when compared to apparel.

You may even want to consider getting items for the new baby girl that will suit the child when it's a little older. Mom and dad will be getting tons of items for a newborn, but once those items are too small, what's next? You may want to consider 9 to 12 month size bibs, booties, and apparel.

And of course, you can consider gift baskets. These are great for friends and co-workers to get together to all chip in. You can use the money everyone donated to hand select items, or if time is getting close and you're busy, purchase a pre-made gift basket for a baby girl.

      Scrapbooking stuff is a good idea as well, especially if the mom or dad likes to scrapbook.
