There are several people in my inner circle who are expecting babies in the new year, including one I announced that is family (MY baby girl). One thing that I love to do for those close to me, who are anticipating a sweet little bundle of joy, is put together a gift basket with unique items I know mom or baby will love. 3 of my top picks are Yoee Baby, Baby Butz (gotta have something practical and priceless in there), and anything from HABA...in this specific case, I'll be discussing the adorable Gallivanting Goose Cuddly. Let's start with Yoee Baby...
I don't know whether it's the feathery soft hair, the colorful shirt, or just the fact that you're interacting so closely and gently with baby while using the Yoee Baby, but one thing that is for sure is the ratings on this, from people who have purchased it, are ahhhmazing!
The Yoee Baby is unusual in looks, it's true (some have called it a baby duster), but it's also unique in that it allows a way for you to have interactive play with baby, even if he or she is not even old enough to sit up on his/her own yet. Not many toys can say that, most are made for children at least just a wee bit older.
The end of the toy has a teething ring, so it is an investment that will grow with baby, and your little one will continue to love.
This award winning toy does more than just entertain, it also helps develop fine & gross motorskills, aids in visual stimulation and captures the interest of even your youngest babies, with ease.
It comes in (6) different character designs, and though I love our little monkey, I'm thinking the kitty cat is awfully cute as well. Know what else? They are machine washable!! That means when your sweet little baby bean drools all over their new favorite toy, you're not going to think, 'ew' and put it out of commission, instead, you can just toss it in the washer, dry it on the no-heat setting in the dryer, and it will be good as new, once again. Those with babies at home, appreciate that phrase (machine washable) for baby items, so so very much. :)
Yoee Baby is recommended for children ages 0-18 months. Learn more about these award-winning toys, by visiting the website HERE. You can also follow along on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter.
Next, let's talk about baby love in a teeny, tiny jar! Baby Butz Cream is sure to become your favorite for your go-to diaper rash prevention (or healing, if necessary), from the very first time you use it, and going forward. It is the strongest diaper rash cream available without a prescription, and it is perfect for a baby shower gift basket.
The all-natural formula soothes baby bottoms, or helps prevent irritation to begin with, and you know that's important to have on hand for any mom-to-be.

Last but not least, any and all HABA items make for great baby shower gift ideas. This Gallivanting Goose Cuddly is not only adorable, it also officially the first toy grandma (that's me) has gifted to our wee little one who is arriving in March. The goose is recommended for ages 6 months +. It is a snuggly and colorful toy that is soft and easy for little ones to hold, without worrying that they are going to get hurt.
If you follow my Instagram, you already know these two wear each other's clothes 🤣, that's not all they have in common, they both also love HABA products for their little bambino. I have had HABA products for all 4 of my children, and some of them have made it to the 'baby boxes,' which is full of the kids' most cherished keepsakes.
If you've been here awhile, you probably also know my kids are goofballs...all four of them (and I wouldn't have it any other way). :) Picture above? Case in point. BUT, back to the HABA goose...I also like that it's an unusual gift item to buy for a baby basket, but would still go well with a bedtime-themed gift basket, toy-themed gift basket, or even in a mishmash of 'things baby will love' type of gift basket. There are so many ways to incorporate this little lovely into the gift giving process. One more obvious way that comes to mind is via Christmas Stocking, or as an adorable gift topper that rests on the outside of a wrapped gift. Whatever the case, the recipient, as well as little bambino are sure to love it, no matter how it is presented at the start. You can learn more about this and other fabulous HABA toys by visiting the official website.
These are 3 Top Picks for a Baby Shower gift basket that I just love. If you are in the market to shop for items for a little one too, I hope you will take these suggestions into serious consideration. :)
