The Best Baby Shower Gifts for the DIY Mom
My crafty and creative friends are generally the hardest to shop for. With their eclectic tastes and distinct personalities, a pre-made present never feels quite right. Since DIY folks love projects that they can really dig into and create from scratch, or assemble with just a few starter-pieces to make something that’s completely their own, I always try to find something that appeals to their crafty side.
If you have a friend who loves DIY from scratch, then we have five baby shower gifts that are sure to please.
Beautifully soft and ultra luxurious, these adorable bunnies made from alpaca wool ooze with cuddle factor. A little over 10 inches tall, it’s perfectly sized for baby snuggles. The kit contains everything you need to make your bunny - the wool, quality stuffing, a crochet hook, stitch marker, needle, and wool for the bow and eyes, a detailed pattern leaflet with photos, all packaged in a beautiful 100% cotton reusable crochet bag. The ultimate gift for a crafter, she’ll love making baby’s first lovey.
Here’s a way to get creative before the baby is born—decorate their nursery from floor to ceiling with flair.

The mommy-to-be can creative with her own color combinations and choose from daisy flowers, critters or beautiful tree and branch designs.

If there’s one thing your newborn will be spending a lot of time with in the nursery, it’s the mobile hanging over their crib. So instead of buying something generic… why not let her make something special?
