When it comes to gifting, I always put so much care and attention in details through each and every gift. Because nothing beats a big smile coming from the recipient. A thoughtful gift is my forte, so let me say… a custom gift is my perfect gift idea. How wonderful to receive- a curated gift basket, beautifully packaged and tied with personalised touch? In addition, I like to have the specific theme so everything matches up perfectly. For example: nautical is such a popular and cute theme to celebrate newborn baby boy. Check out how I package up this nautical welcome baby gift for my friend.
First, it’s important to gather the components carefully. Anything with these nautical elements such as stripe, sailor hat, anchor, sailboat in navy and red colour palette will do! I found some adorable nautical baby clothes that are just perfect for this.
Something for the new mum
Not to forget something rewarding for the new mum. I thought a nice vanilla candle would give her a bit of ‘me time’ in the night to relax and indulge herself.
Think about the unique gift which just specially made for each person. My friend is french so I drew a french sailor hat and painted with watercolour and paired with hand lettering in brush calligraphy style that says ‘Ahoy, it’s a boy’. I printed out the design on postcard to write some personal messages. Another print out with the full baby name was beautifully framed for keepsake.
I also created a custom label for the candle. All elements were put together in a wooden farmer’s basket and adorned with some fresh flowers and leaves from the garden.
