Giving Useful Baby Shower Gifts: Diapers And Diaper Cakes
Being invited to a baby shower doesn’t mean that all you have to do is show up and join in the fun. As tradition goes, you should also have with you a gift as a way of giving your congratulations to the proud parents. After all, that is the main purpose of this party. You give your warm greetings to the couple, and then you “shower” their new baby with useful gifts.
The best baby shower gifts are those that are useful to the couple and the child, and help them save money. Instead of giving the usual clothes and toys, why don’t you get another type of useful item? Giving diapers is a practical option.
Although they might seem a bit tacky and unusual, diapers are given as baby shower gifts by many people today. For one, it’s easy to buy them, and they aren’t very expensive. For those who don’t have time to scour department stores and baby shops for gifts, diapers are a practical choice.
Giving diapers also help the couple save money. You may not be aware of it, but children go through several diapers a day. Imagine how many packs the parents have to buy. By giving diapers, you are assured your gift will be put to use and will help them out. They will certainly be grateful to you.
Many people simply give diapers in packs, wrapping them up in fancy gift wrappers or placing them in decorated gift bags. Even so, there are people who find these a bit tacky. What they do is get a diaper cake instead.
A diaper cake is not a baked and edible treat. Rather, it’s made from rolled diapers, stacked up in several layers, to form a cake-like structure. Diaper cakes also come with other baby products, including lotions, rattles, stuffed animals and pacifiers, held together with ribbons. If you want your diaper gift to look more presentable, you should get a diaper cake.
Diaper and diaper cakes are products that are helpful to parents-to-be. The next time you’re invited to a baby shower, bring these as gifts and the mom and dad will surely appreciate them.
