Thoughtfully Gifted: Baby Shower Confusion


Thoughtfully Gifted: Baby Shower Confusion | Thoughtfully Handmade

At the baby shower, you present your thoughtful gift to your sister-in-law.
Smiling softly, she says to you, “Moira, thank you so much! This is such a thoughtful gift. Where did you find it?” You smile back at her and began to explain.

You have a problem.

Your sister-in-law, Grace and your brother, Nate recently got married, and are now expecting a baby!

Unfortunately, you don’t know your sister-in-law that well since you and Nate aren’t that close. But, you were invited to her baby shower.

What do you bring?

You think of the obvious- diapers! But everyone is getting her that. How can you make something as generic as diapers seem personal?

Stumped, you look to Pinterest for some much-needed inspiration. After hours of searching, you come across this card:

It’s named Baby Bird Tweets, and it’s just adorable! But it’s in pink, and since you’ve been to Grace and Nate’s wedding, you know that her favourite colour is purple.

You cross your fingers and hope that the crafter has a purple version on her website. The card is too cute for you to pass up!

Luckily she did, and you order it online right away.

Problem solved!

When you received the card in the mail, you immediately open it up and squeal. You can’t wait to give it to your sister-in-law!

The night before the party, you ran to Walmart and picked up a box of diapers. You wrapped it up nicely and slide the card on top.

Present day...

“And that’s how I found this adorable card,” you say to your sister-in-law!
