  • Diaper pail

  • Hat box

  • Laundry basket

  • Sewing box/basket

  • Toy drum with top removed

  • Eye pillow

  • Gift certificate to a baby specialty store

  • Gown or robe for the hospital stay

  • Hand or bath towel

  • Inspirational book

Decorating Possibilities:

  • Line the bottom of the basket with a baby blanket. Allow one or two corners of the blanket to hang over the edge of the container.

  • Use yellow, pink and blue tissue to make “puffs” between the items in the basket.

  • Wrap the basket with yellow, pink or blue tulle.

  • Take a cloth diaper (or make a fake one out of paper), fold it into a triangle and wrap it around the bottom of the basket (like you’re diapering a baby). Secure with two diaper pins.

  • Place items into a diaper bag – no need to wrap! Stuff paper underneath the items so they are fully displayed, and use ribbons to secure them in place.

  • Tie a baby rattle onto a ribbon so that the rattle hangs on the front of the basket.

  • Top off the basket with a bow made from yellow, pink and blue curling ribbon.

  • Simple and Inexpensive:  Fill a container with a package of decaffeinated tea, and a relaxation CD or inspirational book.  Top with a pink, blue or yellow bow.
