Ideas for baby shower

Posted by   + Show Post

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! :)

What about a gift basket of handy little things? 

Diaper cream, baby tylenol, nursing pads & nipple cream if she is breastfeeding, wipes, and socks (and one of those little mesh bags for the washer so they don't all disappear into the washer black hole lol). 

If you stick to the registry you really can't go wrong though! It seems like moms take so long setting up registries & nobody even bothers with them. I had around 20 items on my registry. Not one thing was super expensive. I think the most expensive thing was $20-25. Yet we only got like 3 things off the registry at the shower. To me it made sense to register for just practical stuff. People like buying cute stuff though lol.

I agree with this...I do wish someone would have gotten me some of the fun stuff that I asked for, it was fun and educational but no one did.
