Thrifty Wrapping - Baskets are always a good way to put together a gift. In fact, one way to save on the gift is to save on the wrapping. When it is practical, wrap the gift in part of the gift.

For example, wrap a baby shower gift in a receiving blanket with a ribbon wrapped around the top.

Wrap a childs gift in a throw.

For an adult, get kitchen gadgets and wrap them in kitchen towels.

For the male adult, get barbeque gadgets and wrap them in an apron.

Bridal Shower - wrap the gift in bath towels.

Cute Baby Shower Gift Idea- Get a basket, a clothesline (any rope will work) and some clothes pins. Have each person invited to the shower bring their gift unwrapped. Pin each gift to the clothesline and fold it all into the hamper or basket. As the "Mom" starts pulling out the line, have her pass the end to the next person and send the clothesline all the way around the room and back to the basket. As the Mom is looking at each gift, everyone else gets to see them too and in the end, the clothesline gets put back into the basket.

Mother's Day Gift- This is a great one for kids to make up for Mom.

Gather the following items:

Rubber Band
Hershey Kiss
Cotton Ball
Sheet of Note Paper
Band Aid

Then print out these three pdf files. Assemble the items in a bag with the list on the outside.
