I love putting together gift baskets. My mother has been an influence in that department sharing with me that the presentation of something should be as important as the gift itself almost shaming me into making sure that all packages are carefully planned and not just thrown into a bag with some tissue. (I still do this sometimes but only when I'm in a hurry ~ sorry mom) For big gifts like first babies though, I have to put in the extra effort.
I thought I would share this quick and easy way to personalize a plain basket. I found this unfinished wood letter at Hobby Lobby, painted it the same color as the basket and hot glued it on. A basket is a good choice too for a babies room for storage of small baby supplies. White is a classic choice if you don't know the colors of the room. I know this couple was using green and yellow so I just purchased some coordinating ribbon and tissue to embellish the variety of items in the basket. So even though all of the gifts are not color coordinated, the colored ribbon ties it all together. I hope baby Callahan likes it!!!!
