Here, you are going to get ideas and suggestions of how to make homemade baby shower gifts.
You can make a baby brag book. Every mother just loves these, whether this is her first or third child, and it is something that she will really appreciate. All you need is a scrapbook, various colored papers, glue, tape, stickers, and any other decorative things that you can use.
This scrapbook is for the new mother to insert photos of her baby into. One page can be for bath time, one for bedtime, one for playtime, and so on. Decorate each page as much as you like, but just leave enough room for the photo.
You can also give the mother a book of coupons. New parents are so busy when there is a new baby in the house, and any kind of help is really welcome. Make a book of coupons offering your help.
For instance, one night of baby-sitting, one day free house cleaning, one dinner - prepared and delivered, one free afternoon of taxi service, such as running errands, picking up kids from school, and so on, and one free Saturday morning breakfast. These coupons will be worth their weight in gold to the new mom - a wonderful homemade baby shower gift, indeed.
Another really great homemade baby shower gift is the decorated terracotta pot. Take a terracotta plant pot and paint it in pastel colors. Decorate it with stickers of teddy bears, or any other baby-type stickers. When the pot is ready, fill it with all sorts of small gifts, such as lotions, cotton balls, and a rattle, etc., Attach a card to the pot, and you have an inexpensive gift, but one that will have many uses.
All too often, the Dads tend to be forgotten at most baby showers. A very useful homemade baby shower gift idea for Dad, is what is called the "Dad's Diaper Duty". You will need an apron-style two-pocket tool belt, and a paint pen for fabrics. Using the fabric pen, write "Dad's Diaper Dooty" on the tool belt, and then allow the belt to dry.
After the wording on the tool belt is dry, fill the belt with one baby rattle, three disposable diapers, one wash cloth, one bottle of baby powder, one pair of safety goggles, one travel-sized wet wipes package, one newborn pacifier, a face mask for covering the mouth and nose, one travel-sized hand sanitizer, one pair of latex gloves, as well as one clothes pin, which is used for clipping the pacifier to the belt; you can also include any other items which you deem useful for the task of "diaper changing".
Wrap this homemade baby shower gift, and get ready for plenty of fun and laughter when the new mom opens this present. It will liven up the baby shower, and will be something that dad will really appreciate as well.
Of course, one of the best gifts to give the new mom is a baby gift certificate. This way, she can shop at her leisure, and buy those things that baby really needs.
