Post your baby shower gift ideas here...mobiles, diaper cakes, and more!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

The birth of a baby is a year round celebration.  Showers are a great opporitunity to give handmade gifts from the heart.  I think nothing makes a better gift than a beautiful handmade keepsake.

Here are a few ideas I like, please add your ideas, instuctionals, or tutorials for handmade baby shower gifts here!


Mobiles are a favorite gift of mine to make for baby-to-be's nursery.  Here are a few different kinds and links to their instructions.

polka dot mobile


ribbon mobile


felt bird mobile


Another popular shower gift idea is the ever popular diaper cake...


Here is an instructional video about making your own diaper cake...


Another gift i have made in the past are hand painted or decoupaged wooden name letters... like these:

They sell these types of wooden letters and many other styles at most craft stores,  They are reasonably priced and very easy to decorate to match the decor of any nursery!


I look forward to seeing you ideas for baby shower gifts!!! Please post your ideas and pictures here!

 hi im new here  but the owner wanted to copy this post i put in another group n since im crafty  i thought why not  check out the group n stuff lol 

 background story - my sister is due May 15th  ( yes we are exactly a month apart in due dates its crazy and def wasnt planned )  it will be her first  and its a boy  ( we both are having boys too btw lol )  my mom and I are throwing her a shower March 14th . and because its springy  then we chose Bright blue, green, and yellow to decorate with . and a chocolate brown to accent with . its gonna be a polka dot/ jungle animal theme.  ne ways  for her gift from me im going to make her a 5 tier diaper cake . any one ever done one /  that looks similar to this ( i copied it from a webpage for reference lol )

  well for her centerpeices for the tables  i made small diaper cakes. they too are stuffed w baby supplies and of course she'll get all those diapers too .  I just thought id post some pics and show u ladies  so if you wanna get crafty for your shower or someone elses u can make a USEABLE centerpiece for pretty cheap .  i made 14- 16 centerpieces (2-3 per table)  w/ 3 rolls of dif colored ribbons, a few pins, random toys and baby supplies from the dollar store , 5yards of tulle, some shredded gift stuffing  and some rubber bands. plus a $ 20 box of size 2 diapers( shes gonna get alot of size 1 n newborn at the shower im sure ) .  here are some pics of the ones i made  yesturday-

 these are  finished ones - they all have lil toys, pacis, or  baby supplies in em

 this is one before i wrapped the tulle around it  it has 3 baby wash cloths in it

its an awesome idea for moms to be . they turn out pretty cute i think and best of all the mom to be can use em!

  Due APRIL 17th!


 Big Brother Gabe(8-3-07) and Mommy & Daddy  can't wait to meet you !

I just made my sister-in-law this diaper cake and blanket for her baby shower last weekend! She loved them (along with everyone else!) Oh, I also got these longsleeve plain shirts at Target (clearance) and embellished them with iron ons and rhinestones.

Here is my first try at a diaper cake. My coworkers baby shower is tomorrow. I made a baby sized tutu and the diaper cake is sitting on top of it. I also made some ceter pieces for the tables.
