Thoughtful And Inexpensive Gifts For A Baby Shower

Baby shower cake
Ah, baby shower parties! They are hugely exciting, and at the same time, they’re a massive source of stress for both the future parents and the guests. The mom-to-be has a lot to prepare for the party. It’s, for many, the modern bachelorette party of parents. It’s the last they’ll be allowed to enjoy life as a couple. Therefore, a baby shower is something you need to take seriously, especially if, as a guest, you want to show your support to the future mommy. Unfortunately, it can be tricky to come up with a fantastic present idea! Hopefully, these thoughtful attentions can show you care, without breaking the bank!

Make something unique for the nursery room

If the future parents have already started to decorate the nursery room, you can seize the opportunity to make an unforgettable contribution. Indeed, you can make something that emphasizes the love between the mother-to-be and her child and will steal the show… all for less than $20. You can find step-by-step instructions on a previous article of the blog, https://www.freelancelady.com/2018/07/nautical-themed-nursery-super-easy.html. A word of warning: Do make sure you select a pattern that suits the nursery decor.

Prepare a playlist for the baby

Babies can hear sounds in the womb. It’s why a lot of doctors recommend mothers-to-be to read to their unborn baby during the last trimester – when your baby can recognize your voice. You can use the information to create a playlist that is entirely designed to make the baby feel welcome and loved. Indeed, compiling audio files of the parents and the relatives talking can provide for a soothing experience. It can be difficult to find audio data of the future parents, especially if you want to keep your project secret. But you can easily convert video files into audio with these instructions, https://setapp.com/how-to/how-to-convert-media-files-on-mac. So start your quest for cute videos on Youtube!

Sew their first clothes

If you’re handy with a sewing machine, you can give a handmade onesie that will keep the baby warm from Day One. Onesies are reasonably easy to make, so you don’t need to be an expert. More importantly, you can stick to your budget while creating something beautiful and unique.

Find their first friend

Not everyone likes to crochet, but if you prefer crochet over sewing, you can use your skills to surprise the parents with a soft toy. Sweet animals, such as bears, cats, and giraffes, are favorites because they are soothing and simple shapes for newborns. Besides, as most babies tend to keep their first soft toy throughout the years, it would be a nice thing to ensure that the toy has been uniquely designed for them.

Cupcakes are always appreciated!

Last, but not least, you could give the future mommy a last treat by baking trays of delicious cupcakes. If there’s no gender reveal planned, you can keep the colors neutrals. Or, you could help the parents to prepare the gender reveal moment by option for soft hues in blue or pink.


The bottom line is that guests shouldn’t have to feel like they need to go over budget to give something meaning at a baby shower party. On the contrary, the most thoughtful gifts are handmade. They are inexpensive. But they are full of love.
