Take Me Home Baby Basket {Burt’s Bees Baby}

Finding a go-to baby shower gift makes life easy, and my #1 is the Take Me Home Striped Baby Basket from Burt’s Bees Baby.  Full of essentials, this basket has no filler, just high quality baby apparel and accessories sure to win over the new mom in your life.

I’m at that age now (late 20′s) where all of my friends are pregnant.  Having just had my second child, I am very aware of what a new mom needs (and what she could live without).  For my new mom friends, I typically assemble my own baskets as I just couldn’t find a perfect premade one.  Luckily, though, Burt’s Bees Baby has released a Take Me Home Baby Basket that is thoughtful and helpful for any new mom (or mom to be).   It contains the softest of 100% organic cotton fabrics in the form of:

  • kimono top and pant set
  • bib and burp cloth
  • knotted hat
  • receiving blanket
  • bodysuit

It wouldn’t be a Burt’s Bees basket without so baby bath products, so also included are Baby Bee® shampoo & wash and nourishing lotion.

I happen to really love the kimono style for babies, so the top and pant set was initially my favorite part of the basket, but I quickly fell in love with the rest of its contents.  The receiving blanket is quite lovely and makes an excellent swaddle as it has a good stretch to it.  I use this as a stroller blanket as well.

The bodysuit can be matched with the pants from the kimono set and the knotted hat finishes off the look.  So super duper soft, your baby will love to be in such luxe apparel.

One of my favorite things about this gift is that everything is so essential, right down to the basket it all comes inside!  My initial thought for the basket’s use was a diaper caddy of sorts.  I keep ours filled with ready-made cloth diapers.  It’s great to tote around the house.  You could certainly use it to keep a whole host of baby items though, from bibs and burp cloths to tiny toys.

This basket comes in blossom or sky (blue or pink) and sells for $50, a pretty perfect price point for the special new moms in your life.  And because babies come in all sizes, these baskets are available in preemie, 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos and 6-9 mos.   Purchase online at Burt’s Bees Baby.
