One of the most interesting and unique baby gifts to hit the scene lately is a diaper cake.
A diaper cake makes a unique baby shower gift. It's made entirely of diapers and other useful baby items. The diapers are either rolled or arranged in another way to form layers. They can be anywhere from one to three or more layers tall!
A cake made from diapers is the perfect centerpiece on the gift table at any baby shower. It will definitely get the guests talking, and any first time mom is sure to love it!
Ok, so you know this is the gift you want to give. You have a couple of different options when giving this one-of-a-kind baby gift. The ideal solution would be to buy locally. This way you don't have to wait the extra shipping time.
Ask the moms in your social circle whether they know of anyone making and selling these interesting diaper gifts. A lot times you can find crafty ladies with home based businesses selling their creations. If the parents you're shopping for have already decorated their nursery, try matching it to their colors and theme. When it's ready, you just go pick it up.
If you can't find something close by, you will certainly find what you're looking for online!
You will have the largest variety of choices when you shop online too. Choose the size, theme and colors and you get an absolutely gorgeous gift delivered right to your door. Here are my favorite places to purchase online:
If you're the make it yourself type, you can make a diaper cake yourself. You will have complete control over the entire process and final outcome. And when you tell them you made it yourself, everyone will be dazzled.
If the cake is not quite what you're looking for, consider a smaller "diaper wreath". The diapers are arranged and fastened in the shape of a wreath and the other items typically follow a theme making a very festive looking gift that you can hang on the hospital room or nursery wall.
