You can also buy custom ones if you don’t have the time. Diaper cakes can be made with conventional diapers or cloth ones. People even include little soaps and trinkets on the cake.
A Book Collection
A collection of children’s books is the perfect gift for a baby shower. Reading to a young baby improves intelligence, depth of emotion and bonding between parents. A set of the most famous children’s books will be a treasured and special gift.
A special box filled with necessities is a beautiful and memorable gift for new parents. You can fill it with pacifiers, clothes and other trinkets.

Gifts In A Jar
Gifts in mason jars – whether they are filled with baked goods, ingredients for a recipe, or other general goods – have become incredibly in the last year. To make your own mason jar gift, simply get a mason jar or jars of your size preference, and fill it or them with baby necessities. You can stick with a theme or be random. Print a cute label and put it on the jar with a ribbon. This creative gift is visually appealing, useful and very affordable for those on a budget.
