One of my favorite DIY gifts is the baby shower gift. It’s fun to create for a new baby and mother. Nothing says, “I’m part of your tribe” more than a thoughtful gift for the new family.
Obviously, if you have kids, you know that the best three baby shower gifts are a night nanny, a cleaning service, and meals for the first few weeks (years?) after the baby is born.
But seeing most of us don’t have the budget for night nannies, here are some crafty ideas!
There is nothing better for a baby shower gift than to put a personal touch on it and give the parent’s to be a way to create special memories. This DIY Growth Chart does just that. It’s handmade with love and it something they will continue to use as their child grows.
You can never have too many changing pad covers! Sew a few that match their bedroom theme.

Thank you so much for the shout-out,Danielle!;) Lots of lovely ideas.We had a drop in friends/family having babies yet here of late,consistently appears to bring an alternate 'expecting baby' announcement.Probably the most treasured gifts I got at my baby showers were those that were handmade.Those are additionally the ones I've held on to in each child’s keepsake box.:)
