Now that you know what to put in your DIY New Mom Gift Basket, it’s time to learn how to make it! Here are the steps:
Step One: Choose a basket or container. This can be anything from a simple cardboard box to a wicker basket or wooden crate. I love to use woven baskets from the thrift store!

Step Three: Wrap each individual item separately and place them in the basket. This can be a time-consuming process, but it’s worth it because it makes the gift look so pretty!
