We love to use baskets for baby gifts (so they can be re-used for storage), but sometimes the present just doesn’t fit (e.g., comes already in a box).  This is a simple and quick way to wrap a gift to welcome a new arrival and re-use materials.


"Welcome to the World" Baby Gift Wrap: Materials

  • Map
  • Clear Tape
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Hole Punch
  • Print-out of gift tag or make your own


  • Re-purpose an old map by wrapping a baby gift in it.
  • Since a map often has many folds in it, it a forgiving material for children learning to wrap gifts.
  • Once it is all wrapped up, add a lovely fabric ribbon and a print-out of our gift tag WelcometotheWorld (There are spots for names and multiple copies for future use or multiple births!) or make your own.

Safety Notes

  • If you need to trim the map, using scissors, do so with adult supervision
