Description: Tips for shopping for baby showers.
It is the month of babies. I now have invitations to five baby
in the next three months. There goes the gift-giving budget I so
wrote out in January. No, I refuse to let it come to that.
I must come up with acceptable gifts for less. Some ideas
Handmade photo album $12.00
Designer spit up clothes- this is especially fun for kids or
Girl Scouts. Decorate cloth diapers with iron ons and fabric
Diapers or baby food on sale (caution on formula many babies are
from one formula to an other.)
A simple quilt - Purchase a juvenile print and plain backing.
between layers and either frame in and hand sew or buy and sew on
tape. Stitch coordinating DMC floss through three layers and tie
layers in place. $15.00
A consignment outfit that looks like new. Personalize with an
iron on or
Refinish a rocking chair
Parenting books from outlets with enclosed babysitting coupons
Precooked / frozen meals for the family. $5.00+
A food mill, ice cube tray, and a book on making your own baby
Framed theme pictures for the wall - cross-stitch, quilt, paint,
pictures based on the theme the parents have chosen $7.00
Felt growth chart or mobile created to match the nursery's theme
A framed poem about the baby's birth or an acrostic poem using
name as a base $3.00
Also, as with all gifts I recommend stocking up in advance. As
sales or special items, pick them up. Eventually you will have
the items. The only caveat to this method is not to purchase too
advance. Just like with a business, you do not want your money
in inventory (gifts).
