The Art Of Gift Wrapping

The Art Of Gift Wrapping

If you’re planning on giving the new mommy in your life a luxury gift, the presentation must be just as beautiful as the gift inside.

This can be especially difficult if you’re struggling to wrap plush cashmere baby gifts or a soft baby blanket set. 

Here are some essential tips to make your gift wrapping — almost — as good as the present inside.

Choose great wrapping paper

Your premium baby gifts deserve the best wrapping paper on the market. Thin wrapping paper is prone to creasing or

wrinkling in unexpected places, or even tearing. This often ruins the entire presentation of your gift. 

Thick wrapping paper with a beautiful design is the best option to present your baby blanket gift. It’s easier to control creases

during the wrapping process and won’t tear like other flimsy gift wraps. On top of that, the thick paper will feel rich and

luxurious to the touch when she opens her present. Just be sure to place your baby blanket gift on the paper before you cut —

this will give you the perfect amount of paper to cover the present. Using too much wrapping paper is a common beginner’s mistake.

When in doubt, use a box

If you’re wrapping a difficult object like a cashmere wrap for babies or a breastfeeding cover, you might want to put it

in a box before you wrap it. Loose gifts made from cashmere are more prone to tearing and puncturing the wrapping paper.

This can be a huge detriment to both the overall look of your gift and the surprise gift inside!

Avoid the potential for punctures by placing flexible or fragile items in a rigid box. Not only will this give you a clean crease

when you wrap your present, but it will also be easier to transport if you have to travel for the holidays.

If wrapping a box is still beyond your gift wrapping capabilities, then use the Internet to your advantage. Video sharing sites

like Youtube have thousands of video tutorials with easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions.

…Or use a bag!

Bags are a wonderful gift option because you can play with different colors and patterns. They’re easy to carry and you can fill

a bag with just about anything. This makes them a great option for last-minute gifts or multiple items for twins. While twins

only occur in four out of every 1,000 live births, this is still a great option for any new mom. Try experimenting with different

paper tissue to create a fun look for the holidays.

The new mom in your life will love it when she opens her new premium baby gifts. When you have trouble with the art of gift

wrapping, try these tips to improve your presentation.

Great Gift Ideas To Keep Mom And Baby Warm This Winter

Great Gift Ideas To Keep Mom And Baby Warm This Winter

As the cold sets in, new moms and their babies might need a little extra warmth to keep them cozy all

winter long. Whether you’re looking for great baby shower gifts, the perfect holiday present, or just

want to treat the new mom to something special, one of the best ways to do that is through the soft

luxury of cashmere.

 

Here are some of the best items to give the new mom and baby pair in your life.

A cashmere baby blanket

As mom bonds with her new bundle of joy, the best way to do so is by cozying up with a cuddly

blanket to keep both of them warm. A cashmere baby blanket is the perfect gift for the sensitive skin

of a newborn.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect stretch cashmere blanket for swaddling or a blanket that will

last your baby for years to come, cashmere for babies offers the utmost comfort and longevity.

A breastfeeding wrap for mommies

A cashmere wrap for breastfeeding will give the new mother in your life the ultimate in style, comfort,

and function. First-time moms may struggle to pack a nursing cover every time they leave the house,

especially when it’s cold outside. The best breastfeeding wrap is soft, warm, and stylish for the new

mom on the go without sacrificing wear ability.

Warm cashmere baby shoes

It might seem strange to buy shoes for a newborn, but their little limbs will be most susceptible to the

cold during frigid winter months. Keep their fingers and toes warm and cozy with plush mittens and

baby cashmere shoes.

Look for options with adjustable straps to get the perfect fit every time.

A cozy gift set

Can’t make up your mind? Then you don’t have to settle for just one gift. A baby blanket set and toy

provide the perfect combination. If you want to go the extra mile, include a breastfeeding mommy

wrap for a gift that will last. You can put all of these items together in gift basket to surprise the new

mom.

There’s no better first-time mother gifts than the luxury feel of cashmere. Because some women

might be hesitant to purchase cashmere for themselves, it’s the perfect winter gift. When babies start

crying between two and three weeks old, it’s up to mom to give them the best in comfort and

warmth. Soft and warm, these cashmere options will ensure mom and baby stay cozy all winter long.

Announcing Mommy Appreciation Sundays: Weekly Instagram Giveaways

Being a mom is hard work. It’s nonstop. It’s a full-time job without the salary and benefits. You can’t clock out at 5 o’clock, and forget about the work until 9 o’clock the next morning. You’re constantly on call, and you have to be ready to handle anything that’s thrown your way (including, but not limited to, dirty diapers, mashed bananas, and sippy cups). We understand. That’s part of the reason we started posting the mom blogs on our website, and created our community on Pinterest. Being a mom is a job you love, one you wouldn’t trade for anything, but let’s be honest…you often feel underappreciated and underpaid.

 

We at 10 to 12 Baby Lounge feel like moms deserve more than just one day a year to show how much we love them. I mean, what would we do without them?!? After talking about our own moms and the moms in our community that inspire us over the recent Mother’s Day holiday, we decided we needed to do more to show mom we care.

 

That’s why, starting THIS weekend, we are introducing Mommy Appreciation Sundays!  Mommy Appreciation Sundays is an 8-week Mother appreciation campaign centered around the message that “Mothers deserve more love and recognition than just one Mother’s Day.” Beyond our usual monthly mom blogs, our social media pages will be flooded with stories to inspire, thank and educate mothers. We want you to know that we appreciate you, and that we think you deserve something special! In addition to all the words of love and admiration, we will also be featuring great Instagram giveaways and unbeatable deals for mommy.

 

To say thank you for all that mothers do, 10 to 12 Baby Lounge will be doing an 8-week giveaway of some of our various mommy cashmere (as featured this month in Mom.me) and baby cashmere products. Each Sunday morning from 10am to 12pm, the first three customers who arrive to our website to claim the Instagram giveaway will be rewarded with one of our signature mommy cashmere or baby cashmere products.

 

Not one of the first three for the Instagram giveaway? Have no fear!  A special discount on all 10 to 12 mommy cashmere and baby cashmere will also be offered to the rest of our customers who make a purchase every Sunday from June 3rd until July 22nd. These are some deals for mommy that you can’t pass up! Shop for yourself, or for another special mommy in your life.

 

The first week Instagram giveaway will be one of our Baby Cashmere Wraps in multiple colors. This cozy set is made of some of the softest cashmere on the planet, for a versatile and stylish addition to any baby’s wardrobe. So, don’t forget to visit our website THIS Sunday for your chance to enter to win this incredible giveaway! And while you’re there, don’t forget to check out our mom blogs for more stories to inspire and educate. Also, check in on social media (especially Instagram) each week to find out what will be given away next!

 

The entire Mommy Appreciation Sundays event will culminate on July 22nd with a live event hosted at the new Baby Lounge @ American Rag Cie store in Hollywood which will feature the new fall 10 to 12 line of products, host mommy bloggers and influencers, and will include a raffle for a Bentley Stroller and other luxurious goodies for Mommy, like full sized products from Indermica Skincare and special deals with Volvo Cars of Santa Monica. Just another way for us to give a big THANK YOU to all our mommies out there!
