Just back from my own baby shower. Received the most beautiful handmade quilt. As a fellow quilter I really appreciated how much work went into this one. I was also surprised, as I wasn't aware that this person was a quilter so I really appreciated the gift.
I also loved the books I was given, as they were clearly picked with thought and care.
Grateful for all the wonderful practical, useful things I received (washers, bottles, singlets and bibs to name a few).
I don't really do a big baby shower gift, knowing that bub will arrive shortly after I'd prefer to give a gift for that. So for baby showers I usually do handmade taggies and burp cloths. My sisters and mum with the assistance of my sisters mil made my dd the most beautiful animal quilt. It is amazing but still too big to use in the cot. When she was little we were given a knitted receiving blanket by one of my dh's regular customers. That was such a surprise and such a beautiful gift, perfect size for snuggling her in the first winter.
