Custom Baby Gift-Basket



I’m a girl who loves giving presents and certainly gets excited when it’s for a baby girl.  I’ve never been a fan of pre-made gift baskets, as it tends to get cheesy and not the best quality products put together. Naturally, I decided to make a gift basket – items used were all purchased from Target and Macy’s. Instead of using the typical basket, I chose a plastic tray they could use and wrapped it in hot pink tissue paper with a bit of shine.  Since I couldn’t find a big bow, I used a cream hair clip. Finding cellophane wrapping was harder than I thought, but thank goodness for Target.  ..and last but not least, does anyone remember Mr.Bean’s character in the movie, Love Actually, where he was a store associate and made a spectacle out of wrapping the gift and added dried flowers etc. in the bag for that extra oomph!  Definitely one of my favorite scenes from that movie.  Well, I’m bringing it up because I did something similar – to give it that extra touch of luxury, I sprayed a bit of flowery perfume over the cellophane wrapping!  😀  Thankfully, mom and dad of the baby girl did not have any allergies and even liked the scent.  🙂


P.S. Happy New Year!
