Creative Baby Boy Shower Gift

Need an idea for a baby boy shower gift? I’ve got you covered!! After having 4 girls, my sweet friend is making the final preparations to welcome her first little boy into their family and I couldn’t be more excited for her! For her shower last weekend, I gave her this:

I bought some boy onesies, rolled them up and laid them in a baseball glove… because every little boy needs a baseball glove, right?

I put the glove inside a plastic container (from the dollar store) and filled it with other baby items- a baseball, a couple receiving blankets, some baby wash and THIS framed quote.

Lastly, I tied it up with a bow and voila! Easy and cute! You can find cheap baseball gloves at Target and WalMart for around $5 in the sporting goods section. But they aren’t always available, so grab them when you see them!

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on a cute gift- just get creative in the wrapping of it- its all about presentation, right?

Spread the love and pin this image:


And speaking of presentation, are you throwing a baby shower any time soon? Then you don’t want to miss out on this baby shower bundle:
