My niece's baby shower is in 2 days. (YES, my name is Christa and I'm a procrastinator!) I want to get her something unique, she's having the very first great grandbaby for my IL's and we're all very excited. I just hate going to Walmart and getting whatever is on the registry. There's not a lot of stores to pick from in town, basically Walmart and half a Kohl's (yes, really, half of a Kohl's). There's also a couple of very expensive baby boutiques that I can't even afford to shop at so they're pretty much out of the question. What is a shower gift or something you got after baby that you thought was a great idea after the fact but maybe wouldn't have thought to get yourself? Or even a gift for her not her baby boy. One of my SIL's is going in with me so maybe somewhere around $70ish.
p.s. I can sew, not very well, but enough to make the basics.
Gift cert. for a newborn photo session?
Belly Cast kit and offer to help or gift card for a place that does them.
I got a scrap book with DS1 that was all set up with decorations for things regarding his first year and all I had to do was drop in the pics. The person that gave it to me had done all the scrap booking part herself.

For a friend of mine, I got her a bag of things She would need at the hospital.
-Pads (I got her hooked on Always Infinity)
-box of granola bars (our hospital does not feed us much)
-nice bag to keep it all together
God gave Joseph his sister Juliet on November 19th, 2010.
Someone bought me a gift card to get Jacob's hand & foot imprinted in clay, it was a cool idea and I still treasure it!
I think handmade burp cloths are pretty cool, as well as personalized items, such as a blanket. If you have someone in town that does embroidery, you could buy a basic blanket at Kohls/walmart and take it and get baby's name on it.
Gift certificate for a pedicure. I would have loved that!

Great ideas ladies!!! Keep em coming! And thank you so much for the input. I have a feeling my SIL jumped the gun and had her DD pick up something from BRU but I think I'll still add in something unique/personal ya know?!
I pinned this item in Pinterest the other week - totally want to use/modify but thought it was brilliant. http://erinlincoln.blogspot.com/2011...o-go-bags.html
