I Need Good But Cheap Baby Shower Gifts

by M

I got invited to a baby shower. I would love to go but I don't have any money. I don't want to be the only one who came and didn't bring a gift. Do you have some ideas for me?

Hi M,

There are 2 things that any mommy to a new born baby can't have enough of – diapers and baby wipes and they are both make quite cheap baby shower gifts. You can make a diaper cake out of the diapers.

You can make something. Homemade gifts are fun to make and they make wonderful, yet relatively cheap baby shower gifts. Here are some ideas:

Here is a cute idea I found – it's called "Post Card Dinner". It is a post card with dinner options for the new mom to order from you. Use your computer and make the post card (or cards – it's up to you) and give it as a present. It's a win-win! This is an original idea, it's cheap and it's a great help for the new mom after all the grandmothers, aunts and friends who helped her in the first few weeks had left.

If you feel close enough you can make her a homemade gift certificate book with coupons like – babysitting, clean the house, make the laundry, home cooked dinner, Taxi services for her and the baby… It costs you nothing but can be a gift that the expecting mom would really appreciate.

Make her an Advice Book. It is a pretty creative gift that makes a nice souvenir from the baby shower and can be very useful for the new mom if it's her first baby. Get a nice notebook and ask each participant to add her advices and tips for the new mom. You can bring a digital camera and take photos that you'll later put beside the tips and advices that this woman gave.

I hoped you liked these cheap baby shower ideas and will make one of them.

Good Luck.

I got invited to a friend's baby shower. What can I get her that won't break the bank? I can sew - so I was thinking maybe I could make her a few things. Any ideas?

Hi Leyla,

I wish I knew how to sew… You can make such wonderful things – It's a gift!

Here are some practical, yet cheap baby shower gifts you can make:

  • Matching baby blanket, crib bumpers and sheets.

  • Outdoor baby blanket with some toys attached to it.

  • Car seat cover – This cover is great to block the sun while the baby is in the car or to cover the baby while he takes a nap when he and mommy are out of home.

  • Check out these adorable bibs.

  • This car seat blanket makes a wonderful baby shower gift. It's unique and very practical. It has 3 openings to allow your 5 point harness buckles through to wrap and snuggle the baby. I'm sure your recipient mom will use this gift over and over again…

Simple Wishes Hands-Free Breastpump Bra – This is a wonderful savior for every mom that breastfeeds her baby. It's a pumping bra that frees mommy's hands to do other things while pumping. It actually supports bottles completely full of milk. It will fit any woman's body perfectly and is adjustable. Your friend won’t need to get a new size after returning to her figure. I'm sure your friend will be grateful after she'll first try it.

It's a warm cuddly blanket the baby can't kick off and it is wide enough for him to freely move his feet. With your gift your friend can now sleep relaxed knowing that her baby is warm and safe.

Baby Aspen Hooded Bath robe – Your friend is going to fall for this cute robe. After a refreshing bath time for her baby, she'll want to wrap him in something cozy, absorbent and cute. They come in the cutest animal shapes (pink and blue shark, hippo).
