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!

New here, you all are so creative!  I love the diaper cake with the baby tutu under it!  I've made a couple of diaper cakes, here's my latest (not quite as fancy as all of yours, but good for my sis-in-law)

Here's a diaper cake I made for a friends baby shower.  Her shower theme and baby's room were done in these colors with monkeys, so I went along with that.  I stuffed all the goodies inside so that it had a clean look.

Ooh I like the pumpkin theme for a baby shower. A friend gave us this hat and I thought it would fit well with the theme if anyone decided to use that idea...
