Giving a diaper gift is such a good idea. After all, every family with a baby is in need of lots and lots of diapers. And a new family with twins or triplets needs even more!

Of course you can just buy a pack or box of diapers and hand it as the gift, basically there is nothing wrong with this. But why not "disguise" your diaper pack(s) and make something special out of them so it is not just giving a pack of diapers?

Let me show you some cute ways of how to make a unique diaper gift!

Diapers are a great gift idea for everybody but especially for:

- a family with twins or multiples

- a family with older siblings where the basics are already there

- a family that "already has got everything"

How To Creatively Wrap Diapers

  • Take some square diaper packs / boxes and make some baby letter blocks out of them, as shown here. Not only are these a cute gift but also a very cute (and large) baby shower decoration. You can use special themed baby wrapping paper in pink or blue or as shown here just some plain (and more eco-friendly) brown craft paper. If the baby has a short name, use the actual name, for a longer name or if the name is not known yet, make it "baby". Get your letter stencils here.
  • The easiest way is to put a broad ribbon around your diaper pack or box and tie a big bow. Take a pastel blue ribbon for a boy and a pastel pink one for a girl. For a cute decoration, additionally attach some little gadgets like for example a pacifier, some diaper babies or some colorful baby spoons.

  • Buy a really large gift bag with a baby design and place your pack(s) in there.
  • Wrap your diaper pack as a "toy car". You just need some cardboard and an empty toilet roll. Use an economy box of pampers. Make some cardboard wheels, a cardboard windscreen etc. and glue on your box. The empty toilet roll can be used as an exhaust pipe. Just let your imagination play...

Make A Diaper & Wipes Gift Basket:

So the "goal" is to accommodate as many diapers as possible. If you put them in a storage basket you do not have to roll the diapers. Sometimes you can even place the complete unpacked pack of diapers in your basket. Buy a large nursery storage basket such as this one


and fill it up with diapers. You can also add one or multiple packs of wipes. Take a colorful burp cloth and place it on top. Then make a bunch of diaper babies and place them on top of your storage bin. How cute is that!? Here is the diaper babies tutorial.

Make A Giant Cupcake

Take a large bucket - preferably in a pastel color - or an upright bath baby tub (check out the Original Baby Tummy Tub) and stack your diapers in there. Fill the bottom up with diapers whichever way you like. For your top layer, take a burp cloth and have it hang over the bucket. Then start on the outside and stack the diapers sideways to the walls, in a circle. Work your way to the inside and leave a hole. Roll up one diaper and several others around. Stick this roll of diapers in the middle. Have it poke out a bit like a blossom. To make it more colorful, include a baby bandana or a little burp cloth in the diaper roll middle. Alternatively roll a colorful onesie for your middle.

At discretion, finish by tying a large bow around your giant diaper cupcake (the bucket)! 




Make A Diaper Meadow

This idea is similar to the cupcake one. Take a (green) bucket or a storage container and fill up with diapers. The top layer needs to be vertical and very tight so you can stick some baby spoons or artificial flowers in there. You can also roll the diapers up and squeeze these in your container.

For the baby spoon flowers take some green or also colored baby spoons and fix some blossoms on there. Your blossoms can be pacifiers, artificial flower blossoms, napkin flowers, rolled baby socks, etc. For the artificial flower blossoms on a baby spoon see the baby shower decoration below. Fix the flowers with a rubber band at the spoons.

How To Personalize Your Diaper Gift

Little wooden letters and colorful beads on a string or satin ribbon are a cute way to personalize your diaper gift. Attach the 'name ribbon' with some small cloths pegs.  

You can also use bigger, self-adhesive (wooden) letters for personalization. Later on the parents can use these as a name sign and attach it to baby's nursery door or the nursery wall.
