Let me define what
I mean by affordable baby gift
basket. There is
nothing on this list that should cost over $50, with many of the
baskets costing under $20. . .and that includes the basket! If you are
working on a small budget, adjust the basket contents to what you can
afford. Many of the baby shower gift basket ideas include homemade
items. For free baby patterns and clear instructions, click on the

original and unique baby shower gift basket ideas
are meant to
be inspirational, as opposed to a 'checklist'. Your perfect basket will
depend largely on what you find when you shop, so don't limit yourself
to the baby shower gift basket ideas that you see on this page...you
may find something even better!
your affordable baby gift basket
even more special by checking Mommy's registry and using her chosen
colors or theme.
With baskets, size doesn't indicate value...it's just
as fun to create or receive an itsy-bitsy basket filled with special
baby sized gifts.
Pick out your basket last, and choose a size that
looks full with your contents. Ribbon, raffia and tissue add splashes
of color and make inexpensive fillers.

Healthy snacks for Mom and Dad like fruit, non-caffeinated drinks in

flower or two for their picnic.
