Readers Ask: How Do I Give Small Baby Shower Gifts?
Being on a small budget may mean giving a smaller gift at a baby shower. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. Check out the 13 Best Baby Shower Gifts on a Budget for some great baby shower gifts to give when the budget is tight. Before you start to feel guilty thinking of all the bigger gifts that will be opened around yours, remember that it really is the thought that counts. In the case of small baby shower gifts, you have the opportunity for personalization that will make your gift both special and memorable to the new mom.
When giving small baby shower gifts, add special personal touches that show your expecting friend the thought that went into its selection. Tie the items with decorative ribbons or handmade gift tags. Small gifts (such as sample packs or trial-size packs) can also be removed from their package and arranged into a gift bag or basket to spread out the gifts and make a fuller looking display.
A few ideas to get your creative brainstorm going:
- Buy 1 package of receiving blankets. Open the pack, roll each one up and tie with pretty ribbons, and fill into a plastic organizing basket from the dollar store.
- Buy a gift pack filled with trial sizes of baby products such as shampoos. Remove the items, tie each one with ribbons and a hand-written tag telling one wonderful thing about motherhood. Arrange into a gift bag or even tie up in a cute baby blanket.
The possibilities are endless if you just remember that when it comes to baby shower gifts, it’s the quality, not the quantity that counts!
