The Perfect Gift For A Baby Shower

One night I was at work applying a color to one of my favorite clients. We were chatting away when my phone buzzed. I glanced at the screen and my sister had texted me, “Is there any way you can stop over tonight?”

It was an odd request coming from her so I asked, “Why?”

She replied, “Oh, I just want to talk to you about something and would prefer to do it face-to-face.”

It’s never good when someone needs to tell you their news in person, right? I spent the next hour freaking out thinking someone had cancer, or she was going to yell at me, only to find out I am going to be an aunt again!

My sister already has two handsome boys that they adopted (I am their favorite auntie), but this is her first pregnancy AND it’s a girl! Needless to say we have already hit the baby shopping hard.

babyclothesSince this is the first girl our family has welcomed in over 13 years, my sister’s friend is throwing her a shower soon. Obviously I already have the clothes category covered, but I wanted to find a really unique, meaningful gift that both my niece and my sister would treasure. I love Minted.com for their beautiful, artisan-designed business and photo cards, but I recently discovered their baby/kid themed prints.

I love decorating with prints! They have so much personality, and you can find such a wide variety to specifically fit the room or even specific spot you want to decorate. On Minted.com you can see which artist designed each print, and see what other offerings they designed on the site.

These are a couple of my favorites:

So cute, I can’t handle it. Or choose which would be the perfect gift. I think I have settled on this one:

 The best part is I also found a matching journal:

You can add a custom photo to the journal, but since the little miss isn’t here yet, it is still beautiful without. I think it will be lovely for my sister to have a journal to record her thoughts and experiences for my niece to read one day.

I would love your input on my choices. Is a print a good baby shower gift? Which is your favorite design, or do you like another one on Minted.com better? Let me know in the comments!
