I recently finished knitting a baby blanket for my sister. I love knitting a baby blanket, with each stitch I pray for a long, happy life, & pour out all my love for that sweet little baby. I find it so encouraging to think of the baby's future.
Straightforward wrappings present the love & craftsmanship that went into the gift. In my opinion, when the gift is homemade, simple wrappings are definitely the way to go.
