When the invitation came in the mail inviting me to a baby shower, it wasn't too hard to come up with gift ideas.
I always bring the same things to baby showers!
The first gift is a dozen socks!
I spray paint an egg carton, pink or blue if I know the sex of the baby, or yellow or green if I don't.
And then I fill the egg carton with socks!
I place a small piece of tissue paper in each egg holder, to keep the paint off of the socks.
I never buy socks for newborns, even though they have to be the cutest thing around, we all know if they do fit, they don't fit for long.
Once the socks are added to the carton, I tie it up! I used white tulle this time and used the extra socks as a bow!
The second gift I took was a vintage planter filled with wash cloths and baby shampoo, and lotions
I always bring a gift for the mom to be too! Years ago when I had my first baby, a family friend gave me a new bathrobe and slippers at my baby shower. I loved that I got a gift too and decided then to "borrow" the idea.
So, for this new mom to be, I bought a pair of blue slippers.... if you haven't guessed.... she's having a boy, and a few pairs of blue socks that have Aloe Vera in them.
This baby's room has a jungle theme, and the mama has a special love of Elephants.
After looking at such amazing Halloween Spoolies on the blogs lately, I decided to make an Elephant Spoolie....I really wanted to have the Elephant hold the umbrella in her trunk, but her trunk just wasn't strong enough!
Do you have any go to gifts that you always take or make for certain occasions??
