Welcome Wagon – Baby Shower Gift

Looking for the best baby shower gift ever? Look no further. I give you the “Welcome Wagon”! Now I can’t take creditbecause this was certainly a Pinterest inspiration but I modified it for what I had available.

First, I purchased the Little Tikes Mini Wagon from Amazon ($26.99). Next, I hit up Babies R’ Us for all of my favorite items. Since I’ve become a mother I rarely purchase from the registry. Some might think that is rude, but honestly, when I was registering I didn’t have a clue what I needed. For this project, I seriously over purchased and had several things that wouldn’t fit in the wagon but it was for my sister-in-law so I just gave them in addition.

Before putting all your supplies in, put your clear wrap in the bottom of the wagon so that you can wrap around your gifts. My wagon included:

– Little Remedies Trio of products
– baby safe cotton swabs
– a car seat toy
– a bottle brush
– rectal thermometer
– Disposable changing pads
– BabyGanics Hand Sanitizer
– Dapple Wipes
– alcohol wipes
– teething tablets
– formula dispenser
– take and toss spoons
– Desitin
– Burt’s Bees Bath Wash
– Mommy Hook

I’m sure I’m leaving things out but I didn’t write everything down.

Next step, I used my Cricut to cut out the letters “WELCOME WAGON”. I then used a large piece of packing tape and stuck the letters to the sticky side of the tape and then stuck it to the side of the wagon. Tie the clear wrap and presto – finished! Everyone loved it and it was fairly easy to create.
