    Most of the baby showers around here people get blankets and clothes. So a basket would be fine around here. When My friend had her baby my mom and I went in on her gift together, we bought a baby bathtub and filled it with various things that the baby would need, a diaper bag or basket would work fine as well depending on what u would want to spend, u can do a basket really inexpensive. Basket from the dollar store, some shampoo, powder, lotion, or even other things such as baby nail clippers, brush and comb set, wash clothes, vasaline or diaper cream etc.

    Why not donate them to a woman's shelter or similar? If I had some I would even send them in with my kids to school when they do "food" drives. Those items are on the list of things that they need too.

    My shower was very small, and I didn't receive any of those things, which would have been greatly appreciated.

    How about a diaper "cake". There are directions out there on the internet. Basically you roll up the diapers, (can be used again ) into the cake "layers". You can decorate the cake with things. pacifiers, travel size containers, rattles. People will ooh and awe., and you are in for less than 15$. Since you used coupons for the diapers, right!

    My "go to" gift for baby showers is diapers and baby books (the cardboard kind that will take some beating).

    Instead of a card, I always buy a baby book and sign my name on the inside. You don't waste money on a card and it's just a nice gesture.

    I am appreciating the diapers & wipes the most. A stack of coupons would have been AWESOME (to me, the coupon addict, at least) - perhaps stuck inside the pockets of a cute baby photo album?

    Also Johnson and Johnson makes a medicine kit for babies. They sell it at Toys R Us, etc.

    I loved mine. You could make your own.

    Gosh, I hear my first cousin twice removed was a new member of the family, and felt as though I needed to do something as my parents would have had they lived. I crocheted 3 bags with drawstring tops and added several diapers (disp), hand sanitizer, wipes, disp. changing pad, disp bibs and one other item to each bag. What I know of her is that she's a teacher, and an older mom living in NYC. The other items I added were hat, booties, sweater and bonnet, all hand crocheted. Got a nice thank you for that. If I had lots of $$, I'd make about 12 of those up, put them in a nice basket standing up and call it a go pack.
