I did these for my son's baby shower. They are really cute. You can fill a small basket with blankets, they look like candies.
Approximate Time: 1/2 hour

This week at a local discount drug store I found children's sand pail/shovel sets on sale for a quarter. I bought several for gift containers for anticipated showers in the near future.
For 3 baby showers a variety of small infant items will be tucked in a pail and covered with a small mesh laundry bag for corralling little socks in the washing machine. The mesh bag will be stitched in yarn with the word "Baby". A simple bow then can be attached as well.
The pail can be used as a small toy box for Baby's little rattles and blocks now and later as a sand pail.
For a wedding shower, a variety of cleaning supplies will be gathered in a pail without the shovel. This will be covered on top with a dish cloth and bow. The pail will provide a kitchen pail for small cleaning jobs.
No gift wrap will be needed with these and everything can be used by the recipient.
Base your gift to the new baby on the month of the baby's birth. Crochet/knit/quilt/purchase a baby blanket in the color of the baby's birthstone, and include a package of seeds/bulbs for the birth month flower (a chart for both can be found on Hallmark's website). Include a note to the new parents explaining the color and flower choice.

I attended a baby shower last weekend and the hostess had the cutest centerpiece on the buffet food table. It was a shallow wide glass bowl which was filled up with water, and then she put the mini rubber duckies to float. As we got our food, we would take a rubber duckie to take home!
The rubber duckies are found on this site: http://www.orientaltrading.com and the item is #RUBBER DUCKY SQUIRTS
Item Number: IN-39/311
$4.95 per Dozen
I usually make up a basket for the baby with the usual baby bath lotion and such but here is where it really gets good, I also always make up a basket for the new mom. I include bubble bath and a scrubber, new soap a pretty scrunchie for her hair and some good lotion and perfume. This is always a big hit as the new mother is excited about being able to pamper herself after the big day.
