Helpful Hints: Wrapping Baby Shower Gift


To "wrap" the shower gifts for my granddaughter, I sorted them into 4 canvas baskets I found at a discount store and labeled them by seasons: Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring.  Into each basket I put appropriately sized outfits for that season as well as toys, safety items, personalized baby books and night light, bibs, diapers, first birthday party suggestions, baby Minnie Mouse, thermometer, baby book, rattles, hair accessories, extra hangers etc. 
 And in the 5th basket I put the multicolored knitted sweater set and the pink sweater set I made for her along with a crocheted teddy bear.  
The baskets can later be used for storage in her closet or for toys etc.
