How to make a Gift Basket for a Baby Shower

Video Tutorial on how to make a Beautiful Baby Shower Gift Basket:

Step by Step instructions to make a Gift Basket for a Baby Shower:
  • First decide what the basket theme and colours will be.  For example you could choose to do a Animal Safari, Beatrix Potter, cupcakes or boats and cars theme.

    Choose a basket that is appropriate for your theme. Something with appropriate style, size and colour. A baby tub is adorable for a baby shower gift basket. Gift baskets can be as small or large as one likes. Go sweet and simple or huge and glamorous. The sky (and maybe the budget) is the limit.

  • Next decide what items/gifts you would like to be packed into the basket. Arrange all items inside the basket. Begin adding the biggest and tallest items toward the middle or back. Aim for balance in weight and arrangement. You can place a cloth napkin or paper doily in the bottom. Ensure that breakable items are secured or wrapped in cloth or tissue to prevent breakage. Position tall items in the centre, with medium items on the outside, and small ones in between. Individually-wrapped candy sprinkled throughout the items, adds a nice sweet touch.

  • Cut enough cellophane to be able to cover the basket and all the goodies inside, and lay it on the table surface, right side down, and place the basket in the middle of it.

  • Gather up the cellophane, pulling up the short sides first, then longer sides, and secure with a long twist tie.

  • Add the ribbon, making a nice bow with long curved tails. Or attach a ready-made bow. No need to remove the twist tie.

  • Attach the gift tag with string or tape to the front cellophane.

  • If one of the short sides of cellophane is gaping, you may be able to adjust it by pulling gently on the top section, or secure with a small piece of clear tape.

  • Resist the urge to 'play' with the cellophane to get it just right - the idea is to gather the cellophane which produces an array of varying sizes of cellophane 'petals' - a unique 'bouquet'. If the 'petals' are too long for your liking, you can trim them with scissors.
