I have done a basket type gift for every shower I go to - Ilove them!
A toy box - they have small wooden ones at K-mart, Target etc. I have filled the bottom with a blanket and toys etc.
The feeding Basket - use the Fischer Price booster chair with tray it is blue and red chair with yellow tray. set the chair on top of a few yards of tooling from the fabric store, fill the seat with spoons, sippy cups, bottles, bowls, bibs, animal crackers, gerber foods, anything then gather the tool up and around the chair to hold everything in secure with a rubber band and then tie with a wide bow - Everyone Loved this gift & it was the talk of the whole shower!
I also have done a bath basket in a baby laundry basket. HAMCO makes bibs, hooded towels, burp clothe, onsies to match in packets of threes. I bought one pack of each in the same color green, blue, pink and then put all the othe little bath items in around those as the focus. another hugh hit!
Good luck I hope this helps!
