Heirloom baby gifts + unique wrapping ideas

In October, my sister-in-law and brother-in-law are welcoming their first baby, a sweet little girl. To say our family is over the moon would be an understatement. We already have two nephews and one niece, but this is the first baby girl in the family that I get to spoil (my oldest niece was born a few years before I was a part of the fam, so I missed her baby phase). 

Of course, Aunt Nicole has been buying all sorts of little things for baby C. She's gotten a book (of course), a sweet onesie, a bib...the list goes on. However, I've been on the lookout for something that I could pass onto baby C that her mom could cherish as much as she could, and something that could be a keepsake of sorts for years to come. An heirloom.

When Strasburg Children reached out to me, I knew I had found the keepsake I had been looking for. Strasburg Children's clothes are exquisite. They are always handmade and smocked from 100% Duponi silk or 100% cotton, and they generally feature embroidery, lace, and bows. These outfits are treasures. I knew my SIL would love to have one of these in baby C's collection for special occasions, church on Sundays, or even family dinner at home just because. I chose a lavender camisole and bloomer set that baby C could wear next spring and summer - maybe even on our annual beach trip. 

Of course, I had to wrap it up in a unique way. I started by picking up a tiny paper fan garland from Target's dollar spot. I knew I could use the fans as an accent, and since it came with gilded yarn, I could use that as ribbon. Done. Next, I grabbed a neutral box and stumbled upon wooden initials to finish the package. I love the idea of personalizing gifts, especially for babies. 

Between the sweet exterior and the stunning dress and bloomers waiting inside, I know my SIL is going to be thrilled with the gift. Granted, she might see all the details here first, but something tells me she'll look forward to receiving the gift next week just the same. 

Thank you to Strasburg Children for gifting me the set in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
