Sending care packages is one of my absolute favorite things!
So when my best friend found out she was expecting (and I couldn’t attend her baby shower hundreds of miles away in Missouri), I knew I had to get a baby shower care package in the mail ASAP.
The first step to completing any care package is shopping for items to fill it. And there is nothing better than shopping for cute little baby things!
Being a girlmom that hasn’t shopped for babies in years, I was more than excited to pick out all the soft, pink, and ruffly goodies that baby girls so obviously NEED.
This baby shower care package was filled with:
- cute baby clothes
- baby blankets
- and more cute baby clothes

What fun is a baby shower care package without some decorations?
Since my gift was traveling via mail, I couldn’t wrap it up like I normally would when I attend a baby shower in person. Instead, I wrapped the inside of the box. (I made a whole tutorial for how to wrap the inside of a box.)
Side Note: I found this pink flowery wrapping paper at the Dollar Tree (cause I shop fancy, obviously).
After wrapping the inside of the box, I decorated the flaps.
For this package, I couldn’t think of a good pun. So, I kept it simple with “Welcome to the world, Tesla!” I cut out the letters and the heart for the flaps using my Cricut and glittery blue paper.

The baby shower care package was a success!
Of course, it’s not the same as being there for the actual baby shower or being able to meet her sweet baby girl, but I never regret making an effort to let my friends and family know that I love and care about them.
