Baby Present Wrapping Paper


So many babies born in this country are lucky because people give just about anything a baby needs at showers prior to the baby's birth.


 Most moms-to-be have at least one shower in their honor.

The numbers of outfits, doodads and baby toys received for one little baby is sometimes mind-boggling.

It often makes me think of babies in the poorest nations in our world who are born into abject poverty and never receive  a single gift on their births.

We are so blessed here in the United States. There is great material abundance for new little ones.


By the way,  I wanted to show you the wrapping paper used for a recent baby shower gift.


The little figures are so adorable. 


 All I can think of is what a darling mural they would make  for a baby's room. 


Imagine an artist painting them on a nursery wall! 

Such a mural would be so colorful and cute!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GIFT TO GIVE AT A BABY SHOWER?

Cute paper! I always try to get something off the Mother's wish list for her. Each one is different.
hugs, Linda

We've had several teachers at school have babies. I had started making some things but didn't finish any one of them yet. The images on the gift paper would definitely make a very cute mural for a nursery wall. Best wishes, Tammy

That paper is adorable! You are so right in your statement that we in this country are blessed with much material wealth, and I hope that we never take that for granted. It is a gift from God, and we should always acknowledge His blessings!

My favorite gift to give depends on the wishes of the parents, but I have found that a gift card to their favorite store will avoid duplication and give them some freedom and joy in shopping. I always LOVE gift cards!!

Wherever the Mom is registered at or whatever she wants or a gift certificate to Target or Baby Gap are always good gifts to a new Mom. She will always need diapers too.

I am not very creative when it comes to giving shower gifts. I usually find out where the honoree is registered, and that's where I go to shop.

That is really cute paper, and designs like that in a nursery would be such a good idea!

Oh I love the pink giraffe - my niece finds out what she is having March 7th. I want a little girl!
