Being invited to a baby shower is somewhat an honor that not everyone can get. However, before you go to that party, you have to make sure that you have a gift. Giving a baby shower gift is a good gesture and an etiquette, and so you may want now to hunt for something wonderful to surprise the expectant mom.
Aside from the gift itself, it is a great idea to wrap the gift with effort and creativity. Gifts for babies are always adorable, and they deserve to be wrapped or packaged just the way they suppose to be. Here are some wrapping styles you might want to consider for those cute baby shower gifts.
Sometimes, it is fun to wrap a baby present in a way that it reflects the gender of the child. If you know that the parents are expecting a baby boy or girl, one best idea is to consider a wrapping style that suits the baby's gender. The very common style is to wrap a present that in "baby boy blue" or "baby girl pink" - but you have to remember that there are many other colors that you can choose from. Don't limit yourself to blue or pink, rather allow your creative juices to flow so that you can come up with something unique for your baby shower gift.
However, if you are invited to a baby shower but the mom-to-be is not yet sure if it is going to be a boy or a girl, don't worry because you can still wrap your present in a style that fits both sexes. One great neutral idea is to wrap the gift in white paper and instead of using one colored ribbon, use two colors - blue and pink. Tie the two ribbons together and tape them at the back of the package. Then, gather them to form a bow on the front of the package. You will realize that this wrapping style is very easy to do and is always safe to present even if you don't know yet the gender of the upcoming baby.
Adding some toppings is a wonderful idea to jazz up your baby shower gift. There are plenty of cute items you can use for this idea, including baby rattles, teething rings, baby mittens, booties, hair bow, Christmas ornaments, mini picture frames, small stuffed animals, plush toys, etc. All of these items can be attached to the package by either using ribbon, string, tape, or anything that help. Also, these wonderful toppings can be used by the baby, so there's no reason throw them into the trash can.
Wrapping a baby shower gift can go beyond traditional ways of wrapping square gift boxes. If you find teddy bears cute, then do the teddy wrapping style! You can find lots of wrapping paper with teddy bears on them, which are great to use to wrap a present in a teddy bear theme. Alternatively, use a soft cocoa colored paper to wrap the gift and then attach a mini teddy bear on the top of it. You can use a white or brown ribbon to make a bow near the little teddy. If you don't want to use a teddy bear, consider a teddy bear rattle or teething ring as your topping.
Baby shower gifts and wrapping materials can be purchased online. You can also find baby gift baskets that come in wonderful themes, which are also great to give. Making a baby gift basket is also one way to make a creative package of baby gifts for the mom-to-be.
