 When you attend a baby shower do you always give the same type of gift?

I went to a baby shower recently and I was the only one that gave books as a gift. I always give books.

What about you?

I give house proofing stuff and a bag of size 3 diapers. Because people always get newborn diapers or size 1 and they seriously wear those for about a week.

I follow the registry unless sherwood me to get something special for her. Usually, I will buy an outfit, a few toys and something big too like a high chair or car seat base.

Not generally. I don't go to enough in an average year to have any memory of what I gave the last time. I tend toward simple things, though... socks and face cloths, or a blanket and a book, or some luscious baby lotion and a towel, those lovely muslin blankets and a small stuffie.

For baby showers, no, I stick more or less to the registry. After the baby is born, I give a baby basket. Its a wood basket the size of a typical laundry load, some books, a blankie, a soft aminal, an outfit or two and a bottle of dreft.
