If you want to focus on embroidered gifts, find a friend or family member who has an embroidery sewing machine and ask him/her to embroider the items with either the name or initials of the child for you. There are also local tailors that offer such service as well.
Aside from the basic items that are typical ingredients of a baby shower gift basket, you can also think of adding cute keepsakes which can be personalized as well.

You may wrap each gift before placing them into the basket or leave them unwrap, it’s your choice. You can add a nice pastel bow on the handle of the basket for a cute final touch..
