Onesies are a really great gift to bring to a baby shower, but you can make them more exciting by packaging them in something a little off the beaten path. These DIY Baby Shower Gifts in Chinese Takeout Boxes are super cute and they will wow everyone at the party. These homemade baby shower gift ideas look complicated, but they're really quite easy. You can personalize them to match the colors of the nursery or the mother-to-be's favorite colors. Don't forget to include fortunes are advice to the new parents.
DIY Baby Shower Gifts You Can Put in These Cute Chinese Takeout Boxes
When your loved one is expecting, everyone is giving her gifts, so you want to make sure that the gift you give stands out and is meaningful. One of the best ways to make a gift meaningful is to make it yourself. Homemade baby shower gift ideas don't have to be complicated or expensive; on the contrary, they can be affordable and still mean a lot to the mother-to-be. 
One of the cutest things I've ever seen a baby shower gift in are these Chinese takeout boxes. There are so many things that you can put in them! Pretend that you brought takeout food and instead, there are gifts inside the boxes (though, since your friend is pregnant, maybe bring some food anyway). Now that you have the container worked out, let's figure out some DIY baby shower gifts to put inside it!
1. You could make a DIY pacifier clip and include a pacifier or three that are on the mommy's registry. 
2. Make a pair or two of baby booties!
- Minnie Mouse...or Mickey Mouse Booties?
- Froggy Crochet Baby Booties
 - Minion Mania Booties
3. An adorable stuff animal made by a friend of the family is sure to be special and cherished for years.
4. Make the cutest beanies like this "Berry Cute" Raspberry Crochet Hat or this equally adorable Apple Crochet Hat.
5. If you're a mom yourself, then a box full of advice and coupons for babysitting would be extremely meaningful and special to any new mommy-to-be.

My neighbor's daughter is having a baby soon, and I'm definitely going to use this to give her onesies! Wrapping presents in Chinese takeout boxes is such a good idea! Not just for baby showers!
