There are plenty of choices available when you want to give a Moses basket as a gift for baby showers or as a special gift for your baby at a christening. Traditionally, Moses baskets are crafted out of woven wicker, a green, environmentally-friendly material that’s naturally sustainable and natural. Today, you’ll find choices made out of other similar sustainable materials, including rattan or palm leaves. Some offerings are designed to resemble a traditional woven basket more closely, but really are made out of molded plastic with an actual woven effect. Either way, a Moses basket with a stand will make your gift both more useful and prettier than traditional wicker baskets.

Moses Basket? It’s Easy If You Do It Smart

When you look for the perfect Moses basket with stand, there are several features you should pay attention to. First, look for sturdy handles that are at least 2 feet tall so they can safely be placed on a table or other surface. Second, look for a padded handle to make it easier to put the basket down if you have an accident. And, look for a bright color to blend in with your overall nursery theme. You want your child to remember that the basket is his or her very own special gift!

Choose a Moses Basket with Stand that offers two adjustable straps, so you can adjust the height of the basket depending on how your babies weight grows and how often you plan to use it. This is a great option because you’ll be able to use the basket to carry your baby’s stuff (if you plan to use a stroller) as well as place the wicker mattress in the bottom and secure it with sturdy handles. The Moses basket with stand is a practical, stylish addition to any nursery and will make a great memory for years to come. Your babies’ safety is worth the investment!
