Baby gifts

Two dear friends are expecting.  Actually, a whole bunch of my dear friends are expecting and due this spring or summer.  Two of them just happen to work in the same place and we being honored with a baby shower today.

The food was delicious, the mothers-to-be radiant, and the gifts adorable.

My gift was two part - these really great art cards from Wee Gallery and a donation to honor each family with Heifer International.  The art cards were a discovery at Soho Interiors and I blogged about them last August.  Love, love, love these bold designs.  I also liked giving the animal themed cards to the moms-to-be and knowing that some other family around the world will get a gift of animals through Heifer International.

I also really loved this gift wrap combination.  It is a classic - the gold wrapping with an elegant pattern picked up at a garage sale, new and still in the packaging from the store.  The black and white ribbon is from Hallmark and has a great texture.

Truthfully, it looked a little stuffy next to all the bright and springy bags and wrapping at the shower.  Oh, well!

Your idea is great for gifting and in my opinion choosing gift for babies is a very difficult task because they always want something special from you and if its not of their choice then it will become difficult to handle them.
