1. If you knit or crochet you can purchase a few skeins of yarn and make the mom-to-be a new baby blanket. If you know the design and/or colors of the baby's nursery, we do recommend you work one up to go along with the nursery theme. When it doubt, stick with the tradition white, mint green or yellow. In addition to the baby blanket, you could knit or crochet a baby sweater, bib, hat or a few pairs of baby booties.
2. If you enjoy sewing you could make many new things for the new baby. Mom's always appreciate baby quilts, baby bibs, burp pads, changing pads, diaper stackers, diaper bags, tote bags and other items that a baby needs regularly. If you are pressed for time and have a limited budget you could make a few burp pads for only a few bucks.
3. All new moms love to display photos of the new baby so head to your local craft store and purchase a few blank picture frames. Head on over to their craft supplies aisle and pick up some baby themed supplies, a glue gun and some glue sticks. Once home you can hot glue a lot of different baby themed items around the picture frame and give it to the new mom.
4. If you are pretty crafty you could whip up some new nursery decorations for the baby's new room. Moms love hanging new baby theme'd items on the walls, sitting new items on shelves, bookcases and dresser tops. Most moms pick out a color scheme and theme for their baby's nursery so try to work within that style. Wall hangings, mini quilts, homemade stuffed animals, baby blocks, teddy bears, etc. all make nice homemade baby shower gifts.
