BABY SHOWER GIFT IDEAS - PAGE 2
 

Baby Shower Gift IdeaBaby Shower Gift: Giving Back - For those of us who are fortunate, there are a lot of other people out there that need help. A very meaningful idea is to bring gifts that are for children that live in poverty or had a loss, that can be donated to a real charity (the mommy-to-be's favorite charity). Some suggestions are a soldier's fund for those who have lost a parent overseas, the red cross due to all the disasters the world has been having lately or to a battered woman's shelter. If we would all just do our part, the world would be a better place :)

Baby Shower Gift and Tell
When opening the baby shower gifts, have each baby shower guest to go to the gift table and pick up the baby shower gift that they brought and hand it to the Mother to be. Have the mommy-to-be tell everyone their name and how they know the mother to be and a cute little story if possible about their relationship. After she opens the baby shower gift take a picture of the two of them and place it in a baby shower photo album!

Baby Shower Onesies - A great idea is to send a white onesie to everyone when sending out the baby shower invitation. State in the card to use non-toxic and permanent markers and puffy pens that are wearable. Have everyone decorate the onesie in their own style and have everyone bring them back to the mommy-to-be for a gift! A great and personal way to give a baby shower gift.

Baby Shower Money Tree - In this economy, we know that most parents need extra money as well as baby shower gifts. A great baby shower gift is in making a "baby shower money tree" where you plant a med size tree in a basket or purchase a faux plant/tree from a craft store and place small clips on each branch. Have everyone at the baby shower contribute a dollar or more by clipping the money on the plant/tree and then give it to the mommy to be to help out in these tough times! Thanks to Tammy for this great baby shower gift idea!

Daddy-To-Be Tool Belt - This is a great baby shower gift. It is a daddy toolbelt! It has it's own little helping of diaper changing tools including some tongs, goggles, and an airator mask. Also a changing pad some keys for when the baby gets older to play with, a pacifier, lotion, butt cream, diapers, wipes, gloves, and some hand sanitizer. Just a really cute idea to prepare dad. Thanks to Beth for this great baby shower gift idea!

Gift Card Baby Shower - For a mommy-to-be that lives far away from where the baby shower is located, a great idea is to have a gift card baby shower. This is where all baby shower guests get the new parents gift cards (make sure they are from stores not going out of business with this recession) which is easy for them to take with them when traveling back home! A great idea is to have a baby shower sentimental card that everyone brings so the mommy-to-be can read them out loud (and the gift card can be inside each of the sentimental cards). Thanks to Bonnie for this great baby shower gift idea!

Baby Bedding - A great baby shower gift is to get baby bedding if you know the style of the parents-to-be (especially if they have it on their baby registry). For more ideas visit the baby boy bedding or baby girl bedding sections to get more ideas.

Baby Shower Meal Gift - For 2nd baby showers (the second child for the mommy) a great baby shower gift is to have all baby shower guests make a frozen meal (like a casserole for example). When the baby is born, the family has food ready to go during the first few weeks when they might be a little too tired to cook. In the card you can include the recipe for the mommy-to-be. It would be great to know what the family likes and does not like to eat prior to creating the meal. Thanks to Susan for the baby shower gift idea!

Baby Shower Scrapbook Gift - Have everyone who comes to the baby shower write on some acid free paper a quote, note of encouragement, memory, tip or idea, or anything they want to say to the Mommy-to-be. Take a picture with the Mommy to Be and each of her guests - as well as pictures of her opening each gift. Then take the note the baby shower guest wrote and place it with the picture of the Mommy-to-be and the guest, as well as a picture of their gift (if they brought one or another picture of the shower with that guest in it). Next, scrapbook the pictures and baby shower cards all together and give it to the mommy-to-be as a baby shower gift. Thanks to Kristen for this great baby shower gift idea!

Baby Shower GiftBaby (or mommy/mommy-to-be) T-Shirt - Everyone at the babyshower will pass around a (3 month size) baby t-shirt. Colors can be white, blue or pink. Using fabric markers, have each person at the baby shower write down "one word" anywhere on the T-shirt they want - that would best describe baby. Things like: cute, cuddly, adorable, awesome, lovable, gentle, loving. This makes a great baby shower gift. Thanks to Cindy for this great baby shower gift idea!

Baby Shower Journal - Have someone purchase a nice journal for baby shower guests to write loving advice in. The parents could continue to use it after as well, since the pages likely won't be filled. Consider assigning a person to each page at the end of the book for people to list items, feelings, events, etc related to parenthood. Thanks to baby shower guest Diane for this great idea.

Diaper Bowl of Baby Gifts (as pictured)- Fold up a receiving blanket into a big triangle, pull up and around a bowl, and pin in place. (A diaper pin is cute, but this was all I had, and it works.) Let baby shower guests know that they are welcome to bring a small gift to be included in the Diaper Bowl. This sits on the table with the other decorations, cake, punch, etc. The Mommy-to-be keeps everything which makes for a fun baby shower gift idea that is cute and easy to make. Thanks for this wonderful baby shower gift idea Barb S.

It is important to keep your receipts and try and get a gift receipt so the parents-to-be can return anything they have doubles of or if they do not like the gift. This baby shower gift idea list above is not exhaustive, but does list the most essential of the items you can purchase for the couple. If you have any great ideas, feel free to email me at mommy@babyshower101.com.
