You don’t have to spend an obscene amount of money to give an expecting parent a thoughtful, quality gift. Here are some creative baby shower gift ideas that won’t break the bank!
Personalized gift basket. You can easily create a gift basket that is loaded with useful and inexpensive items. Some examples are baby clothes, a first aid kit, baby formula, bath towels and more. Add a personal touch by incorporating the theme or colors that the new parents have selected for the baby shower!
Diapers. What new parent wouldn’t appreciate more diapers? But instead of just throwing them in a gift bag with a card…get creative with it! You can create a diaper cake, a diaper wreath, or even a diaper tower! Click here for directions on how to make your own diaper masterpiece.
Changing table essentials. Useful items like baby lotion, shampoo, wipes, powder, and ointment can all be purchased for less than $3 at your local dollar store. To enhance the gift’s presentation, place all of these items on a tray that can be used as a “breakfast-in-bed” platter for the parents to-be!
Service gift. Baby shower gifts don’t always have to be about the baby! Sometimes, the best gift is something that relieves stress on the new parents. Consider purchasing a gift certificate to a local spa, masseuse, hair salon, or even a cleaning service.
