As promised in my Oh Baby! blog post, I want to show you the baby shower gift that I put together.
I’m pretty proud of it. The onesie and receiving blanket cupcakes are my favorite (especially because those blankets are chevron patterned-I LOVE chevron). The idea was from Pinterest. They were really easy to make.
Also in the basket you’ll notice several books, baby lotion, hair bows, an owl stroller ball and a teething ring. I tried to get the best teething ring for this baby, but honestly, the Sophie Giraffe that everyone talks about was way too expensive for this girl. I substituted for it’s cousin-a giraffe teether with handles. I think the baby will survive.
What you don’t see is that there are diapers, wipes and a few other special things hidden in that basket. Altogether, a really practical gift that was done on a budget.
If I had to go back and do it again, I would put together a sport bundle-with onesies, pacifiers, blankets and diapers all branded with sport’s teams. Very fitting, because this baby’s mama is a huge Chiefs, Royals and Mizzou fan, and I bet the kid will be, too.
Have you put together any cute baby shower gifts lately? If so, I’d love to hear about it, just comment below.
