UNIQUE BABY BOY GIFTS IDEAS
TRACTORS, FARM ANIMALS and COUNTRY LIVING
John Deere baby gifts and tractors are a perfect fit, so a farming baby gift basket would really shine with a John Deere green tractor as a centerpiece. However, you should do some research before jumping into shopping for a collection of Baby Deere toys and gift items to see if they plow with Ford tractors rather than the JD brand. Once you have that information in hand, here are some ideas for your gift basket filled with farm theme baby boy gifts that will look great when displayed alongside the pink or green John Deere baby crib bedding set and nursery decorations.
DECORATING THE BASKET
There’s no need to buy a fancy, expensive basket when a cheap one straight from the farmer’s market would be best. If you just have to decorate it, you can stencil the John Deere logo on the front or tie a big raffia bow on the handle just for fun. Use a large, red and white checkered napkin or tablecloth as a liner to give it a finished look.
FARM GIFT IDEAS
Farm gifts for babies can be tricky as so many of the cute farm sets with the big red barns, tractors and farm animals can present a choking hazard. Save these toys for toddler birthday parties. For newborns, we want soft onesies with funny farm sayings on the front or if you like to buy larger sizes to help mom out in the near future, toddler farm appliqué clothes, so the baby isn’t overloaded with more infant outfits than he or she could possibly wear before outgrowing them.
FARM ANIMAL GIFT BASKETS
For those who don’t know a tractor from a tricycle; country farm gifts are cute. You don’t have to be a farmer’s baby to love baby cows, chickens, horses and pigs. Some farm animal figurines would be nice to display on wall shelves as collectibles are very popular. A gift that you could make yourself would be some small farm animal pillows that you sew from fabrics that will coordinate with the colors mom has used in the bedroom. A patchwork quilt with animal appliqués would be lovely if you are a quilter.
FARM GIFTS FOR THE DAD AND MOM
It has become common to include a gift for the mom and dad to be in the gift basket. For daddy, a new cap with his favorite farming logo on the front would be appreciated. Mom might prefer some casseroles that could be frozen and thawed for those times when homemade meals are impossible to fit into her schedule.
