Baby Shower Gift Ideas

My friend's baby shower is in three weeks and I am stumped on an idea for her. I got her gifts from her registry but I want to do something special for her as well...something creative and memorable. Her mom made a gorgeous scrapbook so that idea is out. I thought that maybe everyone here would have some ideas - things they ahve done, seen or received.

Thanks so much!!!!

Re: Baby Shower Gift Ideas

I know that I would love a diaper cake. Maybe put a bunch of onsies and wash cloths and blankets?

Good luck. I know whatever you do will be gorgeous!

What about making up a bag for her with soaps, lotion, a robe, slippers, etc...stuff she can take to the hospital that will make her more comfortable.

Re: Baby Shower Gift Ideas

i like the hospital bag idea. or you can also do "coupons" for a dinner, night out, cleaning or something on you.

she may never use it but if you are sincere it will mean a lot.

Re: Baby Shower Gift Ideas

i would have loved to get some gift cards to area restaurants. The first couple weeks at home after everyone leaves were brutal for DH and I to try and whip up some dinner.

I was exhausted and still in pain, and he was just plain exhausted.

Maybe that with a cute poem or saying in a card?

You could also make a clothesline.. w/different outfits.. etc. startw/ socks,bibs,undershirts, onesies, and then color coordinate the rest.. I did this for my SIL for her shower and it was really cute.. I had stocked up on the clothes though through her entire pregnancy I think.. so it was really long.. and I had extra clothes that didnt fit too..

Re: Baby Shower Gift Ideas



I just finished my laundry line for my friends shower this Saturday! I cannot wait to give it to her! It came out adorable and there is so much stuff on this freakin line, its soo heavy! Chat Icon

I put it all in a baby wicker basinette and wrapped it in tooling and decorated the tooling with some baby clothes pins.

I also have been taking pictures of her since she got pregnant (every month) and have made her a scrap book with every pic of her each month getting bigger and bigger.
