DIY Gift Idea for a Mum to Be – Baby Essentials Hamper

Here’s How to Make a Baby Essentials Hamper…

Step 1

Get a box. Any box will do but one that’s hollow yet wide will probably work best.

Cover the outside of the box with a nice pattern, you can use colourful card, patterned fabric or why not just paint it? I used wrapping paper to match the theme of my sister’s baby shower.

Then put tissue paper and foam, or some sort of packaging material, to pad out the inside as well as make it look presentable.

Step 2

Buy and gather your baby essential products. I’ve chosen multiple Baby Johnson’s things such as baby powder, cleansing wipes and baby oil. Then I also added Sudo Cream, Savlon, teething gel, cotton buds, soap and even plasters!

Step 4

I’ve added some finishing touches such as french lace on top of the items but you can use ribbon or cellophane.

Step 5

Why not match your baby essentials hamper to the theme of the baby shower? For example, I’ve created a ladybird ‘mum to be’ hanging sash for a fun finish.
