Homemade Baby Shower Gift Ideas

  • Stitch up a personalized baby blanket. There are many craft stores that carry ready made blanket just waiting to have teddy bears, Noah's ark, and other baby themes stitched on them. There's nothing like a homemade gift to show you care.
  • Make a baby quilt. Use scraps of baby themed fabric to make simple 2" squares. Sew them together and you have a beautiful one-of-a-kind baby quilt. Make sure to use neutral colors unless, of course, you know what the sex of the baby will be.
  • Make a gift basket. Fill it with anything that catches your eye for a baby. You can fill it with toys, little onsies, diapers, rattles, baby wipes, baby washcloths and towels, the list goes on and on. To house all of your gifts you can use a basket, a baby tub, a wagon, a diaper bag, or anything else you can think of, the sky is the limit. Keep in mind what the mother needs or would like to have.
  • Make a diaper bag. Open up one of the major pattern books and find a pattern for a diaper bag. Pick out an adorable baby themed fabric and get busy. Even if the mother already has a diaper bag she will be thrilled to show off a new one made just for her.
  • Buy a onesie or sleeper and find a cute, small baby pattern, some aida cloth and stitch away. Everyone will love these personalized little outfits.
  • For crocheters, there's nothing prettier than a hand crocheted baby blanket. Make sure to pick colors that the mother is using in the nursery and a simple pattern. You can never have too many covers for a baby.
  • For scrapbookers, put together a baby book. You can use some of the quotes and sayings included in this hub. It is an extremely thoughtful gift that a mother will treasure always.
  • Decorate a frame to create a beautiful personalized baby frame.

An aspect of womens liberation seems to be that men are now expected to got to such things as baby showers. At least that was the way it was where I worked.In fact, I think we even gave one for a supervisor who was male.
