Hey ladies.. I am in need of some help.  My best friend is having her first baby soon, and I want to get her something really great for her baby shower.  I'm looking for some creative ideas.  So what was your best baby shower gift, or what do you wish you would have gotten?  I'm stumped.  Thanks in advance for the help! :)

Something for the baby like a keepsake and a spa day for mommy. There wasn't just one thing that I got that is my favorite, I appreciated all gifts and my diapers lasted six months but I sure wish someone would have gotten me a spa day lol

A wrap like a Moby or soft structured baby carrier like an ergo or beco.

Check Pinterest for cute shower ideas. As for gifts I wish I would have got restaurant delivery gift cards. I was always hungry but too tired to cook anything.

I agree with the above post. For some reason I barely had anyone buy me anything off my registry. I was most  excited when I did receive something off of it because it was something I absolutely wanted.


Also, if you are crafty...one of my friends went to AC moore and bought a wooden crate, which she painted a light pink. She also bought wooden letters that spell out my daughters name. She super glued the letters to the crate and painted them an off white. It is SO  gorgeous and she worked so hard on it so it made it even more special. (AC moore and Michael's also always have coupons which is a huge plus!)

If you want to get really crafty, I bought the large white wooden letters from AC Moore to spell out my daughters name. I covered them in different scrapbook paper to hang in the nursery.


Hope this helped!

How about some classic baby books, like I Love You Forever or any Dr Suess book?  I generally give a book with a baby gift, mainly because one of my great-aunts always included a book in birthday and holiday gifts.  It really sparked my love for reading (as my daughter has inherited thankfully).

One of the items I received at my baby shower (11 years ago) was a wipe warmer.  I actually received 3 of them and exchanged them all because I thought it was not a necessity.  However, a week in to motherhood, I went and bought one because I had changed my daughter at a friends house who had a wipe warmer and diaper changes became a LOT calmer.  You could also just google baby gifts and search images to see if anything strikes you.  Good luck.
