Make baby book gifts more memorable by sticking Baby Book Tag Printables inside so that the baby will know how much you already love him or her!
A few months ago, I met up with my very good friends, Gina, to meet her baby son, Chunky Monkey (such an adorable nickname!). She is one of the very few mothers who did not have a baby shower. These days, baby showers for the 1st, 2nd…etc. baby is quite common, and it’s almost an automatic expectation that a new mother would want one. Gina did not. All she asked from her friends was a book for her Chunky Monkey and to sign it, so that her son would always remember who gave the book to him. Isn’t that such a thoughtful and lasting idea???!!
This weekend, I’m heading out of town for a bachelorette, but Warren and I were invited to a close friend’s baby shower, and he would be attending. Kat had established a baby registry and we had purchased an item from the list. Although there were no baby books listed not the registry, I couldn’t resist but make sure that her baby girl would have a book that she would read one day and remember that Warren and I already love her.
You can download my Baby Book Tag Printables here or on the right. There is a printable one for a baby girl and one for a baby boy. You can just print it out, write the baby’s name and your own on it with a coloured marker (one that can colour over the black chalkboard-like background), and stick it inside the book! It’s that simple!
I stuck my Baby Book Tag Printable on the inside cover of a Little Miss Helpful book with a glue stick. I also rounded the corners of my Baby Book Tag Printable with the use of a round corner cutter.
I like to show off the baby book, so I slipped the book between the ribbons around the gift with a little help from double-sided tape.
Now for the card….stay tuned for a fun foam card that’s baby appropriate!
