Some Suggestions For Inexpensive Baby Shower Gifts

Aug 17, 2007
Note that a lot of "traditional" baby shower gifts - like infant car seat covers and even stuffed toys - may turn out to be expensive. If you're strapped for elegant gifts to give to a special child in your life, you may do well to look up a couple of inexpensive baby shower gifts that will nonetheless remain treasured by your baby and his/her family for years to come.

First of all, it would depend on how you perceive the term "inexpensive" to mean. Do you mean it's something haphazardly put together, something CHEAP and unwieldy, and definitely unworthy of gracing a joyous celebration? The term "inexpensive baby shower gifts" doesn't mean something put together without a care. Don't just pass off a rattle you hurriedly put together in your basement using industrial glue, pebbles and plasticine (all non-kidsafe, by the way!) as a shower gift.

If you truly care for the person you're giving the gifts to - in this case, the child's parents and/or the child him or herself - you have to invest a lot of thought in the endeavor. A lot of creativity has to come in too, because you don't pay for an offering such as that - it comes from the heart. A gift from the heart is sure to be treasured for a longer time than any other material gift.

Baby showers usually come with cute and happy themes related to infancy, such as pacifiers and bibs. You can try coming up with something similarly cheery, such as a small cupcake for everyone attending the shower, with frosting made out in either the shape of milk bottles and other recognizable baby things... or else the soon-to-be-baby's initials. This is something you can definitely do in your own kitchen!

Speaking of initials, you can make a lot of other inexpensive baby shower gifts with the baby's projected name - that is, of course, if the parents have already selected a name for him/her. You can, for example, come up with a hypoallergenic matching bracelet for baby and his/her mommy or daddy, with the baby's name spelled out in the beads. Or, if you're good at crafts and sewing, you could opt to embroider a set of items, such as a set of handkerchiefs, so that they would have a fancy way of showing the baby's initials. She or he will surely appreciate it when the time comes for such things as baby shower handkerchiefs to come in handy!
