Easy Johnson's Baby Products Gift Baskets

In today's struggling economy, it is a growing trend to consider giving practical gifts over frivolous ones. This stands true especially when shopping for baby shower gifts. It use to be that one only gave gifts that would be used during the first 6 months of the new baby's life. I personally think this rule is outdated.

Crocheted booties and frilly outfits are cute, but they will be outgrown within two weeks. Plus what if the parents don't do frilly? Why not spend your money in a way that is appreciated by the parents-to-be? You may think baby shampoo and diaper rash cream sound boring, but you can create an easy gift basket that can be both interesting and practical. Simply select useful products, such as ones for bathtime and diapering, because those are major expenses on top of formula and clothing. Then choose a useful container for your basket and at least one thing that the baby can enjoy. You can fill any excess space with shredded gift basket fill or tissue paper. To make an even nicer presentation, simply wrap the whole thing in cellophane or a gift basket bag, gather it at the top, and secure the neck by tying it with some ribbon.

One of the newest Johnson's baby products is the Baby Bedtime Bubble Bath & Wash, which is part of their sleep care line. We liked how this product was creamy like lotion or conditioner rather than thin and watery. We were even more impressed because it rinsed off so easily in spite of it's thicker consistency. This product contains NaturalCalm essences to specifically soothe your child before bedtime. Even though this item is new, it still uses the "No More Tears" formula we have grown to trust over the years.
