DIY: BABY DIY GIFT HAMPERS
We are very excited to be collaborating with Target over the next few months. We will showcase Targets beautiful products for the Home and Office and also bring you some fashion trends and baby care neccessitites for your little ones.
This month I was lucky enough to go shopping for my new bub (due in November) and pick up some baby essentials.
After giving birth to my first son Archie, I received some amazing gifts from family and friends. Majority of the gifts included clothes, soft toys and blankets. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated everything that was given to me as Archie arrived 6 weeks early and I hadn’t bought a thing as yet, plus he was the best dressed baby going around but I also found that I was forever needing baby products that were essential for everyday use.
After this I had a lot of girlfriends having their first babies. I decided that instead of purchasing clothes, blankets or toys I would instead create my own DIY hampers as baby gifts. The hampers included shampoo’s, baby lotion, nail clippers, spoons, bowls, wipes and any other new baby essentials. I displayed all the products into a large basket and WOW I had a beautiful gift. The great thing about DIY hampers is that you can cater the hamper to any cost and it still looks like a substantial present.
