We’re introducing our Owl Diaper Cake as a new addition to our Lil’ Baby Cakes product line.  I really love the owl theme that is becoming more and more popular today.  I’ve had this theme design in my head for quite some time, however, I had problems finding an owl plush toy that would  fit the theme.  I’m happy to have found this colorful plush toy to serve as the focal point for this offering.  Here’s a description of this design.

This adorable cake starts with a 2 tier base made from 40 Pampers Swaddler 1 diapers.  We then added some colorful dotted ribbon along with pink trim ribbon to set the overall color cue for the diaper cake.  We added a bottle mounted horizontally on the top of the cake to act as a “perch” for the owl.  Our owl is a colorful patterned plush toy that matches popular color themes used for baby showers or in a baby’s nursery.

New moms enjoy the Johnson and Johnson baby products so we added the travel size shampoo, baby lotion, and baby powder.  We also added some coordinating crinkly paper and a pink and green bow to complete the diaper cake.

Not shown is the white tulle and ribbon used to wrap the Owl Diaper Cake for baby gift giving.  An optional gift card is also provided to create a personalized message for the new mom and family.

We’re excited to offer our customers the Owl Diaper Cake.  Whether you’re shopping for a baby shower gift or a baby gift to send by mail, we invite you to consider our new design.  We’re sure it will become a popular baby gift the new mom will love.  You can find out more information about this design on our product detail page located here:  Owl Diaper Cake

5 Essential Baby Shower Gifts for under $50

As most mothers know, we most likely had some baby gifts that go unused once the baby actually arrives. It may seem like a good product and something that will be used often when we received it, but once baby arrives, it never came out of the box to be used.  Typically the new mom looks for the most practical and easiest products to deal with. Naturally, the “gotta haves” like a crib, stroller, and car seat are required but they represent higher priced items.

I thought it would be helpful to list some baby shower gifts that are reasonably priced and sure to use items for the care of the new baby. Here’s 5 essential baby shower gifts that I put together that are all under $50.

Swaddling Blankets

Babies love to be swaddled and some newborns have a hard time sleeping unless they are tightly swaddled. Even if a mom doesn’t use swaddling blankets as actual swaddlers, they can be used for laying baby on the floor, covering baby outside, and covering up when breastfeeding. There are plenty of uses that a mom and baby can get from swaddling blankets.

Baby Medicine

Baby medicine is usually a baby product that most new moms forget about until it’s 2am and the baby is running a fever. Prepare mom for those nights by giving her items such as Infant Tylenol Balmex, Orajel, and Pedialyte to have on hand.

Sleepers and Onesies

New parents often find out that their baby wears more sleepers and onesies than any other outfit. Yes, there are so many cute outfits for little boys and girls, but many times those outfits go unworn as it is just not practical to put a baby in them. Instead look for cute sleepers (I preferred the ones that zipped instead of button types) and onesies that you know the baby will get good use out of.

Gift Card For Carry Out

When a new baby arrives, the last thing that a mom wants to do or has time to do is cook. This is when a gift card to her favorite carry out restaurant comes in handy. When mom is happy and less stressed, the baby can be happy and better taken care of.  Everyone needs a break now and then and this makes a great idea.

Diapers

Every baby is going to need diapers and in the beginning a baby goes through a lot of diapers. If you do buy diapers for a baby shower, I recommend avoiding buying newborn size diapers and sticking with size 1 or even 2 instead. Some babies do not even fit into newborn size diapers when they are born or they quickly outgrow that size in a couple of days. If you want a creative way to give diapers, think about getting a diaper cake made for the baby shower gift.  Yes, I’m obviously biased. 🙂   We have several diaper cakes that are priced under $50.

I hope you found these baby gift ideas useful.  Perhaps you have some you would like to share.  Feel free to add your comments.
