If you’re shopping for a gift basket for an older sibling, the
gifts should be, specific to the age of the child. Toddlers are most common age group.

Make a basket out of a monogrammed, bookbag or backpack. Add soft toys, books, games, puzzles, a big brother/sister t-shirt or, a super-hero cape!

parents. Use a stylish wire basket, or wooden crate to hold the gift contents.

Include, a nice bottle of wine, a set of wine
glasses (engraved with the year of baby’s birth). Fancy nuts, gourmet spreads, artisan crackers, breads, and fresh fruit are great for snacking.
