    DIYers! I need help!

    Advertisements
    My bff is preggo and I want to do a DIY gift with baby stuff mixed with stuff for her. They'll be moving not long before the baby is born so that's something else to keep in mind.

    I had a wreath I bought for my old roommate with diapers, some onsies and other stuff like that.

    Any suggestions on easy things I could do?

    I always make diaper cakes for baby showers! They're so easy and you can add things like toys and bottles. You can google them to get directions.

    I really like the second link -- daddy doo doo kit You could make one for dad and one for mom that has earplugs, eyemask, etc so she doesn't hear baby crying in the middle of the night and dad will wake with the baby

    I love giving Gift Baskets/boxes. I did a box for His*PITA* got an old diaper box and made a cover for it (you can find sewing instructions for them on pinterest) and fillet it with a bunch of stuff. I had a cute ccrochet car toy, , outfit and other stuff. I love the boxes cause they are great for storage, even just as a cute storage box for diapers. You can also use a bath tub, laundry basket, etc.

    Here are a few other things I really like and would have LOVED as gifts:
    Like for Baby K / Yarn covered letters
    Like for Baby K / super cute sign, wish I had one
    Like for Baby K / Baby shower gift in a tub - 15 things new moms really NEED...my favorite type of gift to give
    Like for Baby K / A starter library for a baby gift!
    Like for Baby K / "Quick Change" Baby Shower Gift ~ How cute! Just grab a bag and go. It's already loaded with diaper, wipes, and sanitizer. Brilliant idea!
    Like for Baby K / Gift for expecting mothers to take to hospital when they go into labor.
    Like for Baby K / 60 BABY SHOWER PRESENTS: All homemade and super cute. Links to tutorials included

    I have made baby burp cloths with remnants from fabric stores.

    Also, get baby washcloths and roll them tightly, and make a flower bouquet out of them.
