At the store I had a great time looking at tiny baby things. It was really hard to decide, but in the end I bought an outfit, coordinating crib shoes, and a soft blanket. I also chose a chunky board book called Open the Barn Door with flaps that you lift to see an animal behind it.
When I went to wrap the present I discovered the only paper I had didn't exactly scream 'baby shower'. It featured assorted cartoon cats on a light yellow background. However, when the thick book didn't fit in the box I attached it to the top with lengths of ribbon. I thought the colors of the book cover blended acceptably with the paper.
