I’m happy to inform our customers that we have released our Limited Edition Diaper Cakes. This is a new category of newborn diaper cakes for our company. I designed these to match popular baby themes at specific price points that would be attractive to baby gift buyers. I worked with our suppliers to find cute items that would work for this line realizing that supplies would be limited.
The Limited Edition initial release consists of the following 3 tier diaper cake designs:
One thing I have noticed from attending baby showers myself, is the overwhelming amount of baby clothes the new mom receives. I think many people buy the clothes because it’s a “safe” baby gift or in many cases because they really don’t know what to buy or have the time to find a unique gift. The reality is the new baby is most likely to grow out of all the new clothes the new mom receives before they can even be worn. And it the grand scheme of things, are clothes really going to be the most memorable baby gift the new mom receives?
Other bigger ticket gifts, like strollers, car seats, etc… are typically purchased by immediate family members and are obviously required items for the care of the new baby. Friends and co-workers don’t usually purchase these items because of their cost or highly personalized preferences by the mom regarding these items. This leaves a pretty big void in terms of what kind of baby shower gifts to buy.
Based on my experience owning Lil’ Baby Cakes, I have put together 3 reasons why a baby shower diaper cake makes a unique gift based on my interaction with my customers over the years.
1. Baby Shower Diaper Cakes are Practical
One thing is for certain, new baby’s require lots of diapers! In fact, for about 2 years of so, diapers will be one of the ongoing expenses the new family will have in the care of the baby. While a diaper cake is not going to make a huge dent in the quantity of diapers the new mom needs, it’s really a unique way of offering diapers as a gift item to get the mom started. Since many diaper cake designs offer baby care items (lotion, shampoo, etc…) and baby toys, the new mom and baby will surely benefit from this assortment of items.
2. Baby Shower Diaper Cakes are Offered to Match Many Themes and Budgets
I have tried to design my diaper cakes to match the most popular themes available today. I realize that people have many different budgets to work with so I want to offer the best selection of theme based designs all at different price points. Jungle themes, ducks, and contemporary designs continue to be very popular and really offer a can’t miss gift for the new mom. I also routinely get requests for custom designs which I really love. These designs, which are typically 5 tier cakes, are the focal point of the baby shower. Many of my customers design their whole baby shower around their custom diaper cake. Whether you are looking for a simple 2 tier design or a “one of a kind” unique custom design, I’m confident we can accommodate you.
3. Makes a Memorable Gift
When I look for gifts to buy my friends or family members, I’m always on the look out for something memorable. After all, we want the recipient of the gift to really love it and remember it because it was unique. My feedback from our customers is that diaper cakes truly are memorable gifts. I get many emails from new moms stating they are not going to use their diaper cake, but instead want to keep it as a decoration in the baby’s nursery. Since many of our designs also feature plush animals by Gund, the new baby will have a memorable keepsake they can cherish as they grow older. I’m sure many of use know kids who still have that first teddy and can’t let go of it!
We’ll I hope these reasons will help you if your unsure about a baby gift to buy for that upcoming shower. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to write. I’d love to hear from you.
A newborn typically goes through 10-15 diapers per day, so it’s no surprise diaper showers are becoming a very popular way to honor expect mothers expecting their second (or third, or forth or oh my…). Now, you many ask what’s a diaper shower? Well, instead of buying the traditional gifts like clothes, high chair, etc.. associated with a traditional baby shower, the guests focus on bringing diapers. The mom most likely has many of the daily care items from the first baby so she can use these items for the care of the newborn, hence the name diaper shower.
However, if you’ve been invited to a diaper shower, you don’t have to settle for getting the mom-to-be a package of Pampers hastily tucked inside a plastic gift bag. A diaper cake is a much more creative way to celebrate the arrival of her bundle of joy. The cake can be used to decorate for her party, then taken apart to help stock her baby’s nursery.
Obviously, the first consideration when buying a diaper shower gift will be your budget. A simple two tier cake is a good choice if you’re strapped for cash. Check our mini diaper cakes for a simple, lower budget option. However, if you are attending the baby shower with a friend or relative, I recommend combining your funds to purchase a larger cake for the mom-to-be. A fully decorated four or five tier cake is sure to be the hit of the party! Since every diaper in the cake can be used once the baby is arrived, a large cake will provide the mom-to-be with 7-10 days worth of diapers.
Just in case you don’t know, diaper cakes are typically decorated with baby bottles, washcloths, pacifiers, rattles, stuffed animals, and other useful baby items featuring a particular theme. Themes for baby boys include sports, cars, and tools. Popular options for diaper shower gifts for a baby girl include cakes with hearts, ladybugs, and butterflies. If she’s keeping the baby’s sex a surprise, go with a gender neutral cake in a theme such as frogs, ducks, or monkeys.
Diaper showers are more common among moms who plan to use disposable diapers, but this type of baby shower can also be a way to honor a cloth diapering mom. If the mom-to-be is concerned with “going green” for her baby, I would suggest taking a look at our cloth diaper cakes for a unique baby gift that’s both cute and eco-friendly.
As always, I welcome your feedback and would love to hear about any diaper showers you have attended.
