“So you know a woman who is expecting a little boy! Boys come with unique responsibilities that girls do not, and caring for a newborn boy can be a different challenge than caring for a newborn girl. So if you chose to put together a baby boy gift basket for the expectant mother, you should try to make it at least slightly different than a baby girl gift basket.
Taking Circumcision Into Consideration
Although circumcision has beginning to be seen more as a cosmetic procedure than a necessary procedure, countless people still choose to have their sons circumcised for personal or religious reasons. If the expectant mother is having her son circumcised, you should include some special things in her baby boy gift basket. It is crucial to keep Vaseline on the site of circumcision, so include some of this in the baby boy gift basket. In addition, you may want to put some gauze patches in the baby boy gift basket, but be sure to tell the expectant mother to discuss with the pediatrician before she places anything besides Vaseline on the circumcision site.
Boy Friendly Gift Basket
Babies really are not that different when they are newborn. A baby boy gift basket really does not need anything too specific to the male gender to be practical. However, if you want to splurge, there are many different things you can add. Most babies do not look distinctly male or female, and mothers try to differentiate to others by making the babies wear things that are distinctly male or female. If you know an expectant mom who is due to have a little boy, you can almost bet that she will love some masculine outfits for her little man. Before you purchase them, make sure that you take into consideration her personal thoughts and beliefs. Some parents avoid putting sport affiliated outfits on their little guys, so if this is the case, do not put any in your baby boy gift basket. Some families do not like logos at all, so take that into consideration as well.
Basically, if you include things that are very blue and masculine in your baby boy gift basket, you cannot go wrong! Although, if the family is not against sports or logos, there are many very cute items you can include. If they absolutely love one sport, like baseball, buy a cute baseball outfit for the little guy. As long as you tailor it to the expectant parents, your baby boy gift basket will be perfect!”
