Mrs Hinch makes adorable gift basket for Stacey Solomon and newborn daughter

Mrs Hinch has created a beautiful gift basket for her pal Stacey Solomon following the birth of her daughter earlier this week.

The influencer, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, spent hours crafting away as she built, decorated and filled up the wooden hamper for her celebrity mate.

Sophie, 31, is known for her amazing DIY projects as well as her infamous cleaning tutorials, which is something she and new mum Stacey, 33, bonded over.

Whilst the Loose Women panellist will have to put her crafting projects on hold following the birth of hers and partner Joe Swash's baby daughter, Sophie has quite literally taken the DIY matters into her own hands and created the beautiful gift from scratch.

Sharing her process with her impressive 4.1million fans on Instagram, Mrs Hinch started out with a wooden crate and a wooden broom handle.

She sawed the handle into parts, before turning them into a tiny hanging rack above the crate, securing it with clear cable ties.

To decorate, Sophie stocked up on artificial flowers and vines, some small wooden pegs and some tiny hangers fit for newborn-sized clothes.

To pad out the space between the gifts, she added in tissue paper and ribbons, as well as placing some of the gifts in cute small boxes.

As she started out the project this afternoon, Sophie wrote alongside her video: "So today I'm going to try and make a special little gift for a very special little someone."

She continued: "Never made one of these before so just went with the flow and hoped for the best".

Ever the perfectionist, Sophie absolutely nailed her DIY project, and despite it being her first time making a wooden gift basket, it looked like something you could purchase at a shop.

After finishing the build, Sophie added plenty of adorable little gifts for Stacey and Joe's baby daughter, who hasn't yet been named by the couple.

Their little girl was born on October 4, which also marked Stacey's 33rd birthday.

She is Stacey's fourth child, as she's already a mum to 13 year old Zachary, nine year old Leighton, and two year old Rex.



Essex-based Stacey has been doing up her daughter's nursery all summer, and completed the pink palace just in time for her arrival.

Sophie has taken her pal's love of pink into consideration when filling up her gift basket as it's packed to the brim with cute pink socks, some pink bunny dungarees, and fluffy pink booties.

We can't wait to see Stacey's reaction to the beautiful gift.
