Reusable Shopping Gift Bag
Find a cute reusable shopping bag and use it in lieu of a traditional paper gift bag. I came across this idea for other gifting occasions, so why not for a baby shower? There are so many stylish reusable shopping bags available now. She will be glad to use it over and over, rather than just throw it out.
Baby Blanket as Baby Gift Wrapping
A friend of mine did this at my baby shower and I thought it was great! She used a cute baby blanket as the gift wrap. (Pictured above in the center.) She laid the blanket out on the floor, stacked the gifts up in the middle and tied it like a bag at the top with a couple more small gifts and the card. This eliminated any trash and looked really cute.
Handmade Baby Gift Box
I wish I could claim this project as my own. What a gorgeous handmade gift box! It really shows just how creative baby shower gift wrapping can be. It was created by Sandy over at Sandy's Space and measures about 5 inches in diameter and 6.5 inches tall. She says it's meant to hold lightweight items such as a bib, towel or little plush toys. I am sure you could think up several other small necessities that could go inside as well. What a lucky mom who gets this lovely creation!
Fabulous Finishing Touches
A few little extra touches can go a long way with baby shower gift wrapping. How about a cute gift tag, a bundle of Mom's favorite candy attached with a ribbon, or a sweet poem about babies. If you have a knack for rhyming words you can write a poem yourself, or look for baby poems here. These little touches will go a long way if you've chosen a gift card as your gift. Mothers-to-be usually love baby shower gift cards, so never feel as if it's a cop-out gift.
