Things you must consider when choosing a baby hamper

Being a mother or father is a major change in life, and selecting the correct baby hamper is one of the things that you can do to demonstrate your assistance to the new parents.
Below are some of the things that you must consider when selecting the perfect baby hamper, so stay tuned. Without further ado, let’s start:
1. Must-have items intended for the baby
Choose a hamper that contains useful items for the baby, such as baby clothes, toys, and baby bed sets.
When buying a hamper with such contents, be sure that the color of the items matches the gender of the baby. Blue is the traditional color for baby boys, while pink is the traditional color for baby girls.
You should also consider getting a hamper that contains toys for babies. A baby hamper that contains toys shows that you are concerned about the baby’s enjoyment. This is particularly essential for exhausted moms and dads who have to take a break from the cries of their babies.
Toys for babies are often effective at getting the attention of babies and calm them down, they are a great item to be included at any hamper.
However, be sure to pay attention to the age rating on the toy included in the hamper. Some toys have choking parts that are not suitable for newborns. Toys with only a single piece, big toys, or pacifiers are great choices for newborns.
Another important set of items for intended for the baby is consumables. Consumables for babies include soap, shampoo, diapers, baby wipes, and natural baby foods. When choosing soap and shampoos, be sure to choose ones that are labeled for sensitive skin.
The same goes for diapers, baby wipes since they will be used in direct contact with the skin of the baby.
2. Choose a hamper with items intended to educate children
There are loud educational baby toys which can be shaken or pushed, which will lead to the toy making loud sounds.
There are also exercise toys that can be pushed, poked, rotated, or squeezed, which are all favorite activities of any baby or toddler.
Meanwhile, if the baby is about 6 months old, you can choose more complex toys like building blocks or puzzles. These kinds of toys will allow a baby to learn and grow while having fun.
Even if the hamper that you purchased does not have toys, you can always opt to personally customize the baby hamper by purchasing a baby toy yourself and packaging or sending it along with the hamper.
3. Choose a hamper with products intended for parents
In Singapore, baby hampers that contains essence of chicken or bird’s nest are a popular gift for newborns. Even though the baby itself cannot consume those items, it will be very useful for the mother.
Parenting is hard, with the parents having to wake up multiple times in the dead of the night to change diapers or to feed their baby. As such, a baby hamper that contains something to eat and drink for the parents is a really good choice.
4. Choose a flower bouquet instead if the baby already has a lot of baby items
In case the baby has already received many clothes and bed sets from loved ones, or if their parents have already went on a baby needs shopping trip, it can be redundant if you still purchase a hamper containing baby needs for them. As an alternative, you can opt for a beautiful bouquet of flowers instead.
When choosing a bouquet of flowers, be sure to get a bouquet that symbolizes new beginnings, good luck, and well wishes. Some recommended flowers include lily, orchid, rose, carnation, and baby’s breath.
