Diaper Cakes are one of my favorite baby shower gifts! Not only are diaper cakes wonderful gifts but they make beautiful centerpieces and overall jazz up the gift table. Prior to about 3 years ago I had no idea what the heck a diaper cake was! I was co-hosting my girlfriend Jessica's baby shower when one of her friends showed up with the most beautifully packaged diaper cake. Everyone at the shower was so impressed, that gift got lots of oohhs and aahhs.
A diaper cake is a creative way to give the mommy to be something she absolutely needs most diapers! Any mom will tell you that you cannot have enough diapers and you will get points for being so creative. I have spent the last few days adding a ton of new diaper cakes to the Swanky Chicks website, head on over and take a peak and keep them in mind for your next baby shower.
Swanky Chicks knows that not only is the gift oh so important but the presentation is key. Great wrapping and presentation will take your baby shower gift from great to oh so Swanky!
Here are a few of my tips on presentation.
1. Add something special - for example wrap the gift, tie a ribbon around the package and top it off with a couple of flowers (real or fake.) Or even think outside the box, the last shower I hosted one of the gifts had a small lantern hanging with the gift tag it was so creative and could be used in babies room. Walmart and Target are both now carrying beautiful unique gift tags and adornments.
2. Make a basket, or baby tub filled with goodies. Fill a baby bath with all the necessary bath products and tie it up in cellophane with a bow. Or create a beautiful gift basket full of small registry items and wrap it with tulle, tie the tulle with ribbons and flowers.
3. Use a gift to decorate the package - for a little boy use a tiny train or toy car instead of a bow!
4. A Diaper Cake - our Diaper Cakes at Swanky Chicks come wrapped up in tulle and tied with a bow, ready to be given to your mommy to be.
Feel free to share your ideas on diaper cakes or gift presentation. The more creative the better!
