So, I was wanting to do a homemade type gift for a friends baby shower but I waited until last minute so I didn't have a ton of time to pull something together. I'm one of those people who likes to personalize gifts, I mean everyone can buy a simple gift but I want my friends to remember that I gave them the gift when they go to use those items. I would have loved to make a wet-bag or those cute stickers for onesies for each month, I guess it's unfortunate I'm such a procrastinator. Instead, I opted for store bought gifts (off of her registry) and then made they cute-sie by adding little quotes to go with the items.
The bag, I choose to use a reusable tote because it's not a cute gift bag that gets tossed but can be used for baby and toddler time after time. Bonus, it's HUGE so you can shove a ton of stuff in it.
Then, I made up cute little rhymes to go with each item. I know some were really cheesy and some didn't really rhyme but it worked. Printed them off, stuck them to some card stock paper I had and then tied them on with some string. I would have liked to use some cute ribbon but I only had girl colors so passed on those.
Here are some close up shots of all of the items and what the little tags attached to them look like. Cute!!
Here are the rhymes that I used for each item. You can of course find other rhymes that match if you buy other items for the baby.
Bottle: I love my bottle when I take a sip, so sit back awhile and don't take it away until the last drip.
Binky: Use this binky instead of a pinky to keep me quite so I'm not cranky.
Lotion: This is the perfect potion, I love the smell of my new lotion.
Brush/Comb: Comb me, brush me, just don't forget to love me!
Toy Blocks: Baby loves to laugh and play, let's hope these blocks will make his day!
Clothes: It's a brand new day, dress me up and take me out to play!
Nail Clippers: Mommy don't forget my feet! Use these tiny clippers to make sure I don't scratch my sheets.
Wipes: Don't forget the wipes, you'll need these to clean my dipes.
Hangers: I know my clothes may be small, but trust me mom you'll need these once I learn to crawl!
