When you’re known for giving creative DIY gifts to family and friends, you always end up running into a problem.

Before you know it, you have become obligated to bring these amazing creative DIY gifts to everything.

Last year I attended 6 baby showers. SIX. By the last one, I thought I had exhausted my gift giving creativity. I mean, it’s hard coming up with new baby shower gift ideas.

But then my friend announced she was having her first baby and my creative spark was rekindled. Just like that – hah! There must be something about babies, and baby showers that brings out my creative side.

And of course there is the internet – just chock full of cute baby shower gift ideas that really, I have no excuse for running out.

Adorable DIY Baby Shower Gifts

So here are just a few baby gift ideas I found today (and of course I want to make ALL of them! hah!)

DIY Bowtie Baby Onsie

How adorable are these DIY Bowtie Onesies? So cute for babies first pictures, Easter or just because they’re adorable!

DIY Stuffed Stacker Baby Toy

This happy stuffed stacker toy from Domesticesq is soft, stackable, and will keep babies entertained for minutes at a time.

It enhances hand eye co-ordination but also doubles as comfortable pillows and stuffies to hug and play on.

Baby loveys are extremely popular among parents because they provide a safe way to interact with their baby without putting themselves at risk.

Adorable baby loveys are cute baby shower gifts, super easy to make, and you don’t even need a sewing machine.

Of course, if you aren’t handy at sewing you could always just buy a homemade baby lovey from us! (Yes, I make these myself!)

Baby loveys come in a variety of sizes. We recommend choosing a smaller one for travel (like keeping in the car seat, diaper bag or at grandma’s house) saving the larger one to use as the main lovey at home.

DIY Baby Quiet Book

One of the greatest gifts I received at my baby shower was a quiet book, hand made by my grandmother.

I’m not quite dedicated enough to create one like this made by Home Made By Jill (I like my projects to be quick) but they are truly one of a kind gifts.

Baby quiet books can be as simple as sewn fabric and felt or really intricate with pockets, surprises and activities inside.

DIY No Sew Pacifier Clips

DIY Tag Blanket

Babies just starting to reach and explore with their hands love tag blankets. Create your own like this one from Tara Being Tara.

Oh my gosh, these are great! So cute for babies who aren’t quite walking yet and they can be made in any color.
