An original way to give birth flowers

If you’re on the lookout for a more original gift, here’s a fantastic idea you may want to file away: create a gift-basket type arrangement of birth flowers, with little gifts tucked inside.

  • The idea is to roll up little items the baby will need at some point—pyjamas, mittens, toques, blankets, stuffed animals, and pacifiers—so they’re shaped like little roses.
  • All you’ll have to do is add your “bouquet” to the real plants and colour-coordinate your arrangement with the baby's gender. It’s a gift any new mom is sure to love.

For a gift that will stand the test of time

If your aim is to give a gift that will stand the test of time and that the baby will appreciate as he or she gets older, you may want to consider a potted plant or a bouquet of quality artificial birth flowers.
