There are many fun and affordable big brother gift ideas that any baby shower guest can put together in a matter of minutes. I know at times it can seem easier to find gifts for girls, but shopping for boys doesn’t have to be a total drag.
I am at a stage in my life where my friends are now having their second child. It seems totally crazy to me as it feels like yesterday we were celebrating the arrivals of our firstborns. It’s human nature to go overboard on the first baby, from gifts to decor to clothing but then when the second-born arrives the attention can shift and that can be a major blow for a kid that used to be center stage.
I can say that because I am a firstborn. Granted, I don’t remember the exact moment my sister came along but I am sure it was traumatic in my own toddler way. That being said, I think it’s important to find a way to make the oldest child feel included in their sibling’s baby shower.
If you have been following the blog for some time you know that I love making gift baskets. I love to customize them with my Cricut Explore Air™ machine because it’s super easy to use and makes the best custom gifts. It can be an investment upfront, but once you get stocked on fun vinyl the options are endless when it comes to giving custom gifts. You can find budget-friendly baskets at a dollar store or Target in the Dollar Spot.
Big Brother Gift Basket Ideas:
Bubble Bath with their favorite cartoon on the label

Simply take a walk through the dollar spot you will find all sorts of fun, affordable and unique items to fill the big brother gift basket. Did I leave anything out as a great big brother gift idea?
