Sweet Baby Shower Gift
I recently had the pleasure of attending a baby shower for my niece, Emily. I wanted to give her something personal so after finding out the baby's name and the color of the nursery, this is what I came up with:
This is a picture I made that has her name, as well as the origin and meaning of it. (They have sites online that gives this info)
Photo Album~ you can never have too many of these, especially for your first child!
Side View of album
The wonderful thing about this gift is that it hardly cost anything! The picture frame and album came from the dollar store and the paper and ribbon I already had on hand from another project. I even had enough left over to make a matching gift bag! It just goes to show that you don't have to spend a small fortune to give a meaningful gift!
*One of my other nieces hosted the shower and she had so many cute ideas ~ she promised me she would send pictures so I could share them with you:)

The framed name is a cute idea! I also love that these are so personal and were completed on a budget.

Have a great day!
