My sister is due to have her baby around the middle of October and I'd been wondering what to get as a gift (first-time aunt here). I'd seen lots of pre-made baby baskets but they seemed too big and ostentatious (and PINK or BLUE with no middle ground) and I wasn't feeling it. At the same time I wanted something with useful stuff, that wouldn't break the bank, and wasn't too over the top jam-packed with random crap.  Anyways, we were out shopping and I saw this little bear, and one thing led to another and this is what we ended up with.



I had the piece of ribbon, which I tied around the basket. Then layered the sleeper, bib and hat. The socks tucked in the side and the pack of facecloths are propped up behind the bear.





And there you have it. Cute, simple, useful, custom color-coordination, and inexpensive. Because if I remember one thing from my son's baby shower, it's that practical baby gifts are awesome, especially for a newborn.

*Edit* Added the pacifier this morning for a little something extra.
