Baby shower gifts

I've only had one baby shower and although my family threw me a wonderful shower with friends and family, I still hate showers. Well, I hate being the guest of honor. There's just something really weird about asking for a bunch of stuff, inviting people to a party so they can give it to you and then trying to look surprised when you open it. My favorite gifts were the surprises. The handmade gifts or independently chosen ones. So that's what I give. I'm sure most of the moms curse me when they get home because they really wanted that under the sea baby swing that has 10 speeds, a five star light show and plays Beethoven's fifth but I can't help myself. What are they gonna do?? Return my gift??

Burp clothes and a wash cloth duckie.

Those are so wonderful! I have a baby shower to go to on Sunday and I have been trying to think of what to make, but coming up short. This is thier first baby and they are not handmade, hand me down kind of people and the only items still left on thier registry(s) are car seats and strollers, which are way out of my budget!

oops, Saturday. In other words, I don't have much time to make anything either. :-(

I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with that gift. It's adorable! And so much more meaningful that you made them!
