This week I hosted my first ever baby shower for my sister-in-law. She’s having a baby boy in July. Here are five fun baby shower foods to celebrate mom and baby!
1. Baby Shower Cookies– Wisconsin artisans at K-Delights make cookies for every occasion, but their baby shower cookies are extra adorable! They come in blue, pink and green designs.
Unusual baby gifts, – for usual mothers.
The most unusual baby gift I ever gave was a tiny, sterling-silver rattle. Yes odd, perhaps impractical because it was sterling, this baby gift was purchased by a naive, 23-year-old who had neither interest in nor desire for a baby. But within hours I would attend a co-worker’s baby shower. I needed a baby gift – FAST!
To the rescue came my own mother who whisked me into the nearest gift shop. The ONLY baby gift the store supplied was that sterling-silver rattle. Mom said it would do.
The precious rattle certainly surprised the party’s soon-to-be mother. She carefully laid it atop the other more practical baby gifts. I read her mind. She thought, “This baby gift is too nice to ever give to a baby.”
Following are more unusual baby gifts, some practical, others not, but definitely fun.
