On Saturday, I attended two very important days in a few of our friend’s lives – a baby shower and a wedding (different couples). Most mothers-to-be and engaged couples register for gifts. I love it because it allows me the opportunity to select gifts that I know they desire. On occasion, I like to create a theme and purchase the gifts accordingly. Gift baskets are some of my favorites.
For the baby shower (we know it is a boy), I decided on a bath theme. The following are the gifts I selected.
Always pick a large item, such as the fun bathtub (shown above), to be the base of the gift basket and then insert the smaller items.
Inside the tub will be:
After removing the tags and placing the items in the tub, I wrapped the entire gift in rubber duckie cellophane wrap ($1.47 per roll at Michael’s) and tied it with blue ribbon.
For the wedding gift, I decided on a cocktail theme. I selected:
I removed the tags and placed everything on the cocktail serving tray and wrapped in damask cellophane warp ($1.47 per roll at Michael’s) and tied with teal ribbon (their wedding colors) and tulle.
The baby shower and wedding was beautiful and I think they will really love the gift baskets. Do you have a themed gift basket idea you would like to share with me? Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
