Poll: Better gift: Diaper cake or diaper bag?

I'm going to a baby shower this weekend and I want to give her something really nice. I've been thinking about making her a diaper cake and decorating it according to her theme with stuff off her registry, but I'm unsure if it will be a good idea. If I don't do that, I think I'll just get the diaper bag off her registry and fill it with other registry items. Can I please have a few opinions as to which would be the better gift? Any responses are very appreciated! :-)

  • If I were the recipient, I think I would like the bag better, it's more useful in the long run. However, they would both be really great gifts.

  • Both are great.
    Depends what you put on the diaper cake.
    But for continued long term use,the diaper bag would be best.

  • A girl friend of mine did something like your diaper bag idea -- she got a baby bath and filled it with items. (She wrapped it in a mesh or gauze, like people would wrap a gift basket, gathered at the top) I loved it. It was a great gift, and the presentation was lovely.

  • diaper bag is more practical but the diaper cakes are really cute (I got one at my baby shower). I am sure she will be happy with whichever one you get.

  • Diaper bag, without a question! And with you filling the bag, it's like 2 gifts in one!
