I need baby shower gift ideas!

Next weekend my mom and I are going to a baby shower for a friend, who is the dad. We have only met his girlfriend once and she is very nice but we would like to go to the shower to show support for both of them. Anyway, since we don't really know her so we have no idea what kind of stuff she likes, or what her "style" is. She has a 2 or 3 year old so this isn't her first child. I asked him what they needed or wanted and he said diapers but I will be damned if I am showing up with just a bag of diapers LOL! Anyway, I don't want to go crazy or anything since I don't know her (like some of the cool homemade things on pinterest) but I would like something she can actually use. My baby shower was 7 years ago, so I am a little rusty.

Ideas?

 make a diaper cake, that way they get thier diapers and you actually spent time on it. and then the top of the cake you can put like washclothes or little onsies.

How about a gift for them? Diapers for baby and maybe a giftcard or something for them to go out and eat after baby sometime as their own treat?

My niece has this cute portable mobile, like a mini crib mobile with a clasp. I think it's pretty cool and does come in handy for me when I am changing her diapers. I attach it to a shelf I have right above the changing table. I'll take a pic of it and come back...

My go-to baby shower gift is swaddlers!! 

I tend to get a pack of diapers and a swaddler or two. My children loved them so much I gift them to everyone I know!

If you are crafty maybe make some burp cloths or receiving blankets.  It is something you can never have to many of and not to mention it has the home made touch.

Yea, the big 40/40 gauze swaddlers is my go-to.
