Three Things that All Baby Hampers Should Include

baby-giftsWelcoming a new addition to the family can be a great excuse for a celebration. Whether you’ve been invited to a party, or if you’d just like to send the parents and new born a heart-warming gift; you won’t go wrong with a gift basket. Baby hampers, unlike traditional ones, should comprise a variety of goodies and treats that can be enjoyed by the infant and its parents alike.

There are a few items that you will always want to include however – and they can all but guarantee to be put to good use by the happy parents. Here’s a look at each of them and why they are so important to include within a hamper.

Gluten-free treats

When babies are born it’s not uncommon for their immune systems to struggle to come to terms with modern ingredients and formulas that are commonplace within markets and stores. Of these ingredients, gluten can pose an increased rate of reaction – one that can actually be very harmful to the health of a new born child.

Whilst choosing the components to go into your hamper, it’s a better idea to opt for those that are marked as ‘gluten-free’. The parents will then be able to give the snacks and treats to their baby, without having to worry about a reaction. Furthermore, you’ll be able to rest assured that none of the goodies will end up going to waste.

A little something for the parents

Although your hamper will undoubtedly be customised to suit the baby, there’s really nothing wrong with offering a little extra for the parents, too. This could be a bottle of their favourite wine, or even a variety of savoury snacks to help them to celebrate. Whatever you choose, your loved ones will certainly appreciate the gesture.

You could go even further by sending them a separate gift hamper entirely. This way, you won’t need to worry about the components getting mixed up and you’ll still be able to provide something for the baby, as well as their happy parents. What better way to show just how much you care than by treating both parties to a stylish hamper that they can put to good use immediately?

Functional Items

Not all functional hamper items are consumable, in fact others that might be of benefit include dummies, nappies and baby wipes. These types of product will be in high demand, so making sure that at least one of them is included in your hamper can be a great help. The whole point of a providing a baby hamper is to offer a gift that can be as appreciated as it is functional.

As long as the baby can enjoy a few treats (gluten-free of course), then you’re already half way to a successful present. To go even further add a few components that the parents will appreciate, such as a dummy from a reputable brand, a few packs of baby wipes to help to tidy up messes, or a packet of nappies – and you’ll be able to rest assured that your gift will go a long way!
