Baby Onesies for Baby Showers?

Some of you want to know whether baby onesies are a good gift for baby showers. Well we here at blossom baby clothes we wanted to give you our humble opinion on the matter. Basically, there are two trains of thought: (1) baby onesies are a timeless gift that will always be a great present and (2) while baby onesies are a great gift, they should be supplemented by something else.

We here tend to agree with the first train of thought due to the numerous benefits of baby onesies . They allow the diaper changer easy access to that favorite region of the body, making it easier to change the diaper. They stay in one place as the baby wiggles all over, and they can be used for multiple purposes (just as a shirt or as an entire outfit for the day). Perhaps the best reason to give baby onesies as a gift is that they are relatively inexpensive.

The fact that baby onesies are relatively inexpensive leads us to the second train of thought. I’ve found baby onesies that only cost $6.99 at some stores such as Wal-Mart. Many gift givers feel that this is not enough money to spend on a gift and so baby onesies should be supplemented with some sort of other gift. I’m not telling you to be stingy, but a gift is a gift, if you want it to be something special then money won’t make the difference, but time will. Spend some time writing the person a letter or make them something that you had to do yourself. Money doesn’t make a gift special!

Do you think giving a person a baby onesie is enough? Feel free to comment below.

Making Your Own Baby Onesies

This post is dedicated to the concept of creating your own baby onesies for your children. There are advantages and disadvantages to making your own onesies: the other option being to just buy ones that other people have made.

Important Side note: when we say making your own onesie, we’re not talking about actually sewing the thing yourself, we’re talking about going to a user-friendly website where all you have to do is upload the picture and type in what you want. Of course if you want to hand stitch one, that’s your prerogative.

Using Internet shops is the best and easiest way we have found for making baby onesies. (This is a great way make an “I’d rather be naked” onesie or to add any other favorite saying to the baby clothing). Once your at the web page simply type in the saying you want and then you can choose the text color/style and even put a picture if you want!

One of the benefits of making a baby onesie yourself is that you can put your own funny sayings on the onesie. If you are looking for some funny sayings to spark your brain cells, just try googling “funny baby onesies sayings”.

Another benefit of making your own baby onesies is that you can put pictures on them. I have a picture of my Mom and Dad on my baby boy’s onesie and my parents absolutely love me for it! I highly recommend this.

A disadvantage of making your own onesie is that it can take a little bit more time and energy. Sometimes it is nice to see a onesie that someone else has made and not have to use your own creative juices.
