    • 0I had a really big baby shweor and got everything we needed for furniture and bedding clothes bottles I mean EVERYTHING. I appreciated all of it. It was nice not having to worry about going out and buying anything but the thing I really loved that was pratical was diapers! Almost everyone got me a pack or two and we didn’t have to start buying diapers til our son was 4 1/2 months old cause we got all sorts of sizes we had gotten so many that we actually have a few size 1 s packed away for the next baby cause we couldn’t go through them all! That and baby food. My mom put on the invite that she was preparing a baby food basket and asked everyone to bring a jar of baby food (very inexpensive wal mart brand starts at 37 cents for the stage 1) and I ended up with so much baby food in all stages my pantry has a shelf just for his baby food! If you do the diapers don’t forget wipes! You can get a box of refill wipes at wal mart for around 8 dollars and you get i think 700 wipes. So you could do both diapers and wipes. As a first time mom I knew we’d go through a lot of diapers but never really thought about the amount of wipes you go through. Anyways hope this helps..I know all the outfits and toys are so cute but pratical gifts are always appreciated! Good Luck!

  1. 0lmao i just came across your qeutson when searching for handmade baby shower gifts ideas My friends and sis’s in law all say there fav gifts for there baby showers was soft baby blanket, soft hats in an arrange of sizes( you dont have to get a gift that will fit the baby right now, most mums are wel stocked for the present time but arent stocked up for the following months when the baby wil grow quickly). I gave a friend of mine a lovely baby blanket about 4 years ago when she had her first and it was big then and its still big on her little girls bed now, still in use. One of my sis’s in laws loved nappies lol, a friend of hers got amoung other things a changing bag and a bout a dozen packs of nappies, my sis in law found them so useful, ok they dont lsat long but she remembers that gift more than most as they came in handy specially in the nite and u run out lol.Overall i would say a few small gifts are best, something useful, something for the future months to come and something personal. Thats what i also stick to and i have 4 sis’s in law and have attended god knows how many baby showers. Have fun shopping, have fun at the shower, and i hope i helped some how even though i blabbed on a bit sorry x
