You'll also love, "Smencils!" A set of 10 scented pencils for $14. Fun! 


 For the Baby

To make the traditional, "Diaper Cake," the key is to find a whimsical wide ribbon to make it adorable. Either match the color scheme if you are giving the shower or find festive baby ribbon. Secure the diapers with a large rubber band. TIP: Sit them down in a cake pan to steady while you apply ribbon! Place the ribbon around the diapers and tape with a piece of clear packing tape. Stores that sell ribbon will make a lovely full bow for the top if you aren't sure how. You can do a "one layer," diaper cake or make it two or three tiered.

The lovely baby basket above right has a cute spin! Using a rectangular woven basket you fill it to look like the teddy bear is in bed! Place a small pillow in the back, tissue paper in the bottom (quite a bit to raise the items in the basket.) TIP: Sprinkle some baby powder on tissue so the basket smells wonderful! Place a small little teddy bear against pillow. Fold a baby blanket in a triangle and lay across teddy bear's lap. Place a couple of baby items on either side of the teddy. No need to wrap with cellophane. It would take away from how cute the finish gift looks.

Simple Thank You Gifts

One important thing to remember is this: Presentation is EVERYTHING! TIP: Take the gift out of the cheap wrapper or packaging and place it in a lovely box on a bed of sparkly stuffing. It increases the perceived value of the gift. Wrap cellophane around a candle or small cookie container and tie with a beautiful ribbon. TIP: Purchase rolls of clear cellophane right after Easter when it is marked down 75% off! You'll use it for gifts all year. TIP: Purchase marked down foil candy after Christmas; it will not expire before Valentines Day which is a great time to use red foil candies. Or green Christmas foil candy for St. Patrick's Day. Chocolate has preservatives that make it last a long time if kept in a cool place.

Gift Basket Ideas 

Some folks don't feel they are creative enough to create a gift basket. It really is just coming up with a theme and tucking in the items in a visually pleasing manner. For an Italian basket gather: A box of pasta, tongs, a jar of sauce, a jar of olives, even a plastic wrapped loaf of french bread. TIP: Watch yard sales, flea markets, and thrift stores to purchase inexpensive, high quality baskets. I rarely buy them new unless my own supply is low or I have a unique need. The gift in photo upper right are bath items on an inexpensive silver tray which is a lovely idea. TIP: For inexpensive filler items always go to the Dollar Store first. A mixing spoon is just a mixing spoon so save cash on these type items by purchasing them there.

Again: Call me or email if you'd prefer I whip one up and bring it by to you!
