Picking out the perfect gift for your friend at her baby shower can be a bit unnerving, especially if you are new to the whole maternity thing. You do not really have to fret about it. You just need to remember a couple of things when you are shopping for a gift. Make sure that the gift you plan to buy is practical and useful. Obvious choices would include baby clothes, toys and supplies. However, there is one gift that has every single one of those and more. Diaper cakes are fast becoming the most popular gifts to give during a baby shower.
What is a Diaper Cake? If you have not heard of them before, these are not the same with the ones you can eat. They are called cakes due to their shape. These are rolled up diapers stacked into layers and made to resemble the appearance of cakes and Baby Shower Centerpieces For Tables. Only, instead of the edible stuff, you have diapers. The number of layers your cake can have depends on you. You can opt for 2 layers or more. Now when it comes to the icing, this has baby supplies instead. Bibs, rattles, and bottles can be used to adorn the cake.
Diaper cakes can be made into certain themes. You can base your theme on the sex of the baby, or on the most popular cartoons. The most popular choice for baby boys includes cakes that are worked into a blue theme. On the other hand, pink themed cakes are best for baby girls. You can also go all out and opt for sports themes for baby boy, and fairy tale themes for baby girls. Animals are also a popular choice among parents.
Now if you are worried about how much diaper cakes can cost you, you do not have to fret. There are cheap options on the market if you are tight on budget.
