What can I get for a baby shower?

I want to get something really special and thoughtful for my sister-in-law she's expecting her first baby. No one knows if it's a girl or a boy... so I need to stay away from the blue and pink stuff. They want to be surprised when they finally give birth to the baby. Anyone have any good ideas for gifts?

  • You could do a spa day and have her belly put in a cast for her. Most spa's that do prenatal massage off casting as part of the packing or you can just have that done. Maybe do a pregnancy photo shot for her if she hasn't had any taken yet.

  • You can get a clothes line and some pins and attach ALL KINDS of things and attach it on to the line. Then when she pulls out the line it will stretch ACROSS the room:):) I did this to my BFF and it was SO FUNNY!!! You can do like a binki, 1 onsesie in one spot and then more further down the line. Open a package of face clothes and put them in seperately and SO ON!!! I did this and bought mostly everything off the clerence rack and you can even do some stuff from the dollar store. GOOD LUCK!!

  • Get a highchair. Get one that matches the color scheme of her kitchen.

  • At baby showers, people want what they need. Did they give you a registry? If not, see what they have. Anything they need, add that to your list.
