Sterling silver baby gifts are beautiful but if you want to give a little more than a silver keepsake, make a gift basket that centers around the silver item. Here's a great idea: First, have a sterling silver baby spoon engraved with the child's name. Then, buy a large wicker basket and line in with an adorable baby blanket. Fill the basket to the brim with baby formula and assorted flavors of jarred baby food. Buy 2 or 3 adorable baby bibs (try to stick to a particular theme like duckies or polka dots) and arrange those in the basket as well. Wrap the spoon up in a gift box and place it in the middle of the basket. Finally, top the basket off with a nice bow.
