a surprise baby shower is my fave

August 14, 2013

Lexy girl is expecting and soon! Today I’m participating in a virtual baby shower to celebrate mama-to-be and baby Ward too by sharing the anatomy of a (really great) baby shower gift.


The gift philosophy want, need, wear, read doesn’t just apply to Christmas time, it fits nicely when putting together a baby shower gift too. It’s impossible to resist cute little outfits (especially for baby girls) but I love to include a couple of my favorite items too, like a swaddle blanket and board book. And adding a treat (like a chocolate bar or gift certificate for a pedicure) specifically for the mom is always appreciated. Being pregnant is hard work!


You don’t want your gift to fall flat because the wrapping is ho-hum. I like to use colorful boxes (since I’m rubbish at wrapping the corners flat) and then add flair on top. Poms are a good alternative to bows and super quick to make. And Egg Press makes the best cards.

Congrats Lexy! Sorry you already know what your gift is.
