We’ve got baby fever. We can’t help it. Every single day another person is announcing that they are pregnant, and our crafty soul is now on Pinterest daily checking out things we can make to send off to our friends with children. What we can we say, any reason to craft, right?
Last year our mother threw a baby shower for a close friend and it was SO much fun to watch her make different things for the party. She made everything from the incredible invites, to the flower arrangements, cookies and cupcakes and sweets galore; she went all out. It inspired us to search the web for some fun and easy baby shower gifts that we could make for the people in our lives that are expecting.
Check out what we found!
Diaper Cake – No baby shower is complete without a diaper cake. If you are in charge of any part of the baby shower, volunteer to make one of these because they are so much fun and really adorable. We love this beach themed one, this four tiered green and brown polka dot is amazing, and here are some simple DIY instructions to follow. Go crazy with the add ons if you’re looking for something a bit fancier!
Personalized Gifts – Something with the baby to be’s name on it will always be special to the parents. These pictures are adorable and easy to make, this fabric wreath with their new initials would be sweet, or decorate a onesie with iron on appliques.
The Essentials – Put together a gift basket with all of the essentials. Diaper rash cream, diapers, baby wipes, bottles, etc, and instead of using a wicker basket, put them all in a toddler tub, bassinet, or car seat, depending on how much you’re spending for the gift. Top it all off with a bow and some ribbon.
