Recently, my gorgeous friend had a scrummy baby boy, and I am going to show you one of the baby shower gifts I gave her.
I must point out that this isn’t an original idea, and I spotted it on Pinterest, but I thought it would be the perfect gift to give.
Firstly I bought a big box of newborn nappies…and then took the nappies out and put them to one side.
I took the top flaps off and covered it in wallpaper. This took some serious trial and error because I had to line up the pattern the right way on each side. Apparently a difficult task if you are me! I covered the joins in the paper with some contrasting lengths of paper and finished it off inside.
Using sharpies I wrote a mass of comments and messages on the nappies for when the late night blues of nappy changes set in…anything to give the gorgeous mama a smile and a little lift at 3am. I only did half a pack so I could let the other ladies at the shower write some too!
Super easy peasy! You could buy a nice box rather than trying to cover the cardboard one too, whihc then could be used again and again for storing nappies in. The cardboard ones would get a bit tatty after a few months or so.
This gift only cost the price of the nappies but was able to mean so much more!
What are your suggestions for a great baby shower gift?
