We have recently had two new babies into the family. One was from Daniels cousin (who had a boy) and the other was Daniel’s (our) Niece.
As an only child being an aunt is impossible. So It’s absolutely wonderful to be called “auntie” from Daniels Nieces and Nephews. I’m thankful to be in their family and to be counted as a family member.
I made them both a card using stamps from Clearly Besotted.
We also made our Niece a little gift basket. Because we didn’t know the sex of the baby until she was born, we kept it neutral.
We bought some little bear booties, a super soft onesie with bear ears, some cute socks and a couple of new born hats and we bought a gift basket from Homesense.
I also went to Hobbycraft and bought some pom pom makers and some wool and made a pom pom garland and tied it in a bow, so they can use it in her room or her brothers room if they wished..
I was really happy with how this turned out and they loved our gift.
Personally I love to add a little homemade touch to a gift.
