diy baby shower gift ideas

Have you ever been to a baby shower, where the outfit you bought that was so cute, was also given to your friend by three other people? Embarrassing!  Please excuse me while I crawl under the sofa and pretend to be original. How do you make it so that doesn’t happen EVER again? Or how do you show your friend/sister/co-worker that you really thought about their gift? Simple, make them something!

The quick change caddy may be the best idea I’ve seen for a new parent. There are 12 bags and each one contains what you’d need for one diaper change. They’re perfect for the Dad that refuses to carry the diaper bag, or keeping in the glove box in case of an emergency. (Source:Inspire co)

Speaking of Dad’s, they are often left out when it comes to shower gifts. I think the idea of giving the Dad a “Doody kit” or doody toolbelt is a cool way to include them and prepare them for life with a newborn. You can really put anything you want in it, common items include: pacifiers, squeezable baby food, diaper rash cream, gloves, goggles, and Advil. (Source: Amelia Springer)
