Baby Essentials Box
A newborn and a new mom have a few basic needs that the gifts in this box are meant to fill.

Wrapped in these boxes we've included a kimono, booties, thermometer, nail scissors, striped sweatshirt, and a cotton undershirt for the baby; for Mom, a candy-filled baby bottle and bag of herbal tea.
Wide velvet ribbon
Line a mailing carton with tissue paper (blue for a boy, pink for a girl).
We added a wide velvet ribbon, then a cotton baby quilt to provide cushioning when it's folded over the gifts. The ribbon, tied into a bow, will hold it closed, and a hand-knit mouse peeks out at the recipient. Wrap the rest of the gifts in coordinating tissue; tie a pacifier on one for decoration.
