Baby showers have been quite popular for some time now

What is a baby shower?

A baby shower is a party or ceremony, which celebrates the delivery or expected birth of a child. According to the custom, only women are invited to a baby shower and each one needs to give a gift to the soon to be mother. Although, as of late, there has been mixed showers being thrown for co-workers, for example. Typical gifts are usually ones, which are going to come in handy for the new mother, such as diapers, onesies, baby clothes, bottles and toys. The party is usually in the afternoon, serves mimosas and includes playing baby themed games. Some games include guessing the gender of the baby, diaper change race, etc. Another custom is for the mother to be to open the gifts during the party and in front of the guests.

Now it’s time to get started with the tutorials with the cutest, personalized gift wrap you can ever make
