Baby Shower Gifts – Presentation is a Plus!
Are you invited to a baby shower? Then you must bring something special for the mom-to-be. Presentation is a plus when giving gift to a dear friend. Before you wrap the gift, you have to know first the sex of the upcoming baby, or if it is intended for the mom, wrap the gift in a way that she would surely appreciate. To cut down confusion, here are some ideas on how to wrap baby shower gifts creatively.
If you are going to a baby shower but pretty unsure if the baby is going to be a boy or girl, wrap the present in a gender-neutral color such as white, green, silver, or yellow. Instead of using one ribbon on the wrapped present, make it two. You can use two colored ribbons, in neutral colors of course, that will make two different colored bows on the top of the present.
To add another cute topping to your baby shower gift, you can use some cute baby accessories and toys such as rattles, teething toys, baby mittens, socks, hairbow, or small picture frames. Or if the party will going to be held sometime during the holiday season, you can use Christmas ornaments as additional decoration on your baby shower gift. Such items can easily be fastened by tying them with a ribbon – and these extras can also be used by the baby.
There’s a lot of creative ways you can think of when wrapping a baby shower gift, one of which is a teddy bear gift wrap. To make this kind of gift wrap, of course you will need a wrapping paper that has teddy bears on it. There are so many wrapping papers that come in teddy bears themes, however, if can’t find one, you can use cocoa colored gift wrap instead. After wrapping the gift with a teddy bear themed wrapping paper, you can put a cute teddy bear on the top of the package together with a nice white or brown bow. Alternatively, you can use teddy bear rattles, or teething toys instead of a small teddy bear.
For a baby girl shower gift, consider a pretty floral look. You can use a wrapping paper with floral prints or even just plain but colored paper, and then simply add a nice green or purple ribbon and tie it in a bow. If you prefer plain colored paper, it would be best to add some fresh spring flowers on the package to enhance its look. Make sure to cute the stems of the flowers short and then just add them before you to the party. This way the flowers would still look fresh for your baby shower gift.
Is there an older sibling? A baby shower gift doesn’t always necessarily need to be for the baby nor for the mom. If there is an older sibling, your gift could be something for him/her. You can think of wrapping a toy, board game, piggy bank, school bag, or a nice children’s wear. Baby gift baskets that contain a variety of cute baby gifts can also make a wonderful package for the baby shower. Get creative and imaginative when making such wonderful basket that the mom would definitely love and remember from you!
