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.

Mommy Appreciation Sundays Now Back With Mommy and Baby Freebies!

If you thought we were done celebrating mamas, think again. Mommy Appreciation Sundays are back at 10 to 12 Baby Lounge with mommy and baby freebies and more to come. We had so much fun with the campaign over the summer, growing our community of mommies, and got such rewarding feedback that we just can’t let it go.

A quick recap…

If you missed our first round of Mommy Appreciation Sundays or need a quick reminder of what it is, we’re happy to fill you in!

Mommies work a never-ending job without getting paid, and rarely even get acknowledged for much of what they do. They ask for almost nothing in return, prioritizing others’ needs before their own. 10 to 12 is here to give those moms a little extra attention and TLC, just to let them know how valued and appreciated they really are. We disagree with having only one day a year to truly celebrate these superwomen; we’re doing it every month!

What it includes

How exactly do we celebrate Mommy Appreciation Sundays, you ask? For starters, our social medias will be more centered around mommies, including inspirational quotes, images, and stories. We will be providing tips for new and veteran mommies alike. We want 10 to 12 Baby Lounge to feel like a friend, a retreat, a place that makes mommies feel extra special, because they are. Our goal is to spread that message throughout our Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, blog posts, etc.

In addition, similar to our previous Mommy Appreciation Sundays campaign, we will be doing special giveaways, because mommy and baby freebies are a wonderfully unexpected treat, especially when they’re made from the world’s softest cashmere! Upon visiting 10 to 12’s website, you will be greeted with a pop-up. It gives you the opportunity to enter your email so you can receive a special $25 gift card that will be delivered to your inbox immediately. This gift card can be used on any 10 to 12 Baby Lounge products, with the exception of our new Llama and Cacti plush toys. However, we are thrilled to announce our new fall line that includes multiple new gift sets, complete with the very cutest baby accessories from cashmere baby shoes to swaddle blanket sets. Our Happy Mommy, Happy Me cashmere gift set is a favorite amongst breastfeeding mommies, and it is sure to reign you the ultimate baby shower gift bearer amongst your friends.

But wait…there’s more. If you provide your email address to receive the $25 gift card to apply toward your next purchase, you will automatically opt-in to a raffle to win cashmere mommy and baby freebies during that month. On the first Sunday of each month, beginning in September, we will select a winner, in celebration of Mommy Appreciation Sundays. The raffle prize will change each month, but for the month of September, it will be one of our Stretch Me swaddle blankets, usually priced at $158! Spread the word to your new mommy friends! No purchase is required to win*. We only strive to give back to our community of mommies t0 help them feel more supported.

Why is this so important to us?

As a brand that has experienced mothers on the team, we understand the needs and feelings that are common amongst moms. Mommy Appreciation Sundays is not only about showing mommy appreciation by giving them special deals – it’s about creating a community of mommies who can be there for each other. As moms, we can celebrate each other’s victories, hold each other up during the tough parts, and encourage each other on our journeys as mothers. Thats why we loved sharing our live event so much this past summer; moms were able to make connections with each other, mommy bloggers, mom influencers, our non-profit partner Baby2Baby and press who happen to be mothers themselves. We hope to continue to share rewarding experiences and treats with our growing community of mommies, and welcome new ideas in the comments below! Stay tuned for more details on that in the coming months as Mommy Appreciation Sundays continues to evolve.

In the meantime, we hope you take advantage of the opportunities for mommy and baby freebies this fall by entering into our monthly drawings along with your mommy pals, and we hope we can be a place of support and love through #MOMMYAPPRECIATIONSUNDAYS.

New Addition Liam the Lion to the Cashmere Baby Blanket Collection!

We are so excited to introduce the world to our playful young cub, Liam the Lion; the  newest face of your premium cashmere baby blankets. Don’t you love his sweet face?! Liam joins our stars Gavin the Goat and Kiwi the Cat, who are already making a name for themselves as some of the best baby gifts out there.

Meet Liam

Liam the Lion is not your average Lion, of average animal stories. No, Liam is quite special. Liam loves to travel! Liam seeks culture! He hails from the great Mozambique in Africa, where he likes to spend his days frolicking in the vast savanna and splashing in cool creeks. While enjoying his beautiful homeland one day, he came across some visitors who introduced him to a scrumptious treat: an oatmeal cookie! Eager for more, and always up for a new adventure, Liam boarded the next plane to New York City.

 

So busy! he thought, but still oh so pretty!

He followed his nose to a bakery shop

and ordered six cookies, he ate without stop!

 

Having satisfied his curiosity, and his appetite, Liam headed back home (but not without some more cookies for the long journey, of course!) As with many a weary traveller, Liam was happy to return home for some much needed rest. Rest that was best accompanied by his favorite cashmere baby blanket.

 

Liam’s Cashmere Baby Blanket

Liam the Lion comes in our signature premium machine-washable cashmere. The soft colors make this cashmere baby blanket as beautiful as it is snuggly. Never far from his new foodie obsession, Liam is seen with a stack of hearty oatmeal cookies by his side. Detailed hand-embroidery work makes Liam’s face come to life, with a bold, savanna-inspired red. And of course, colorful pom-poms dangle from Liam’s feet to encourage sensory play for baby (and something perfect to cuddle when dozing off to sleep).

 

Because we know Liam will be well-loved wherever he roams, the cashmere baby blanket comes in our unique baby keepsake box. Not only will this box provide a safe place for Liam to be kept long after blanket snuggling years, it also has a special place to keep other precious baby memories, like a lock of hair from baby’s first haircut or baby’s first photo. Buying a security blanket as a gift for a special new sweetie in your life? Our baby keepsake box needs no gift wrapping! A simple ribbon can make this box an elegant addition to any baby shower gift table.

 

Why Animal Stories?

As with every cashmere baby blanket in our collection, the story of Liam the Lion comes included as part of our unique baby keepsake box. Just like the babies in our lives, the faces on our blankets each have their own unique story. These sweet animal stories encourage imagination and exploration to the little ears that hear them. The faces on our blankets come to life and help establish a bond that can last a lifetime. Not only does baby enjoy the cuddliness of the softest cashmere in the world, they also get a friend who can go on great adventures with them. Because at 10to12 Baby Lounge, we believe that the best baby gifts are the ones that help make lasting memories.
