    I need some advice. My brother and his wife are expecting their first-born in March. This is the first grandchild for “our” side of the family and I, along with soon-to-be grandma are extremely excited. We are in charge of the baby shower for our side of the family. I want to do something unique and non-traditional. One idea is, instead of a card and giftbag, the atendee brings a book and writes a message to the baby in the book. That idea is already taken, however, because her side is doing it. What are some ideas along the likes of the Book Party that would be fun?

    Hmm … each person decorates a onesie for the baby?

    (You could have onesies in a variety of sizes up to 9-12m so they don’t end up with too many in NB/0-3.)

    We are doing the onsie thing :)

    I was just wondering if there was something neat to replace the cards and bags like the book idea..We could also do the book idea, but I wasn’t sure if there was a “necessity” or something somewhat inexpensive that could replace the card/bag….

    OK, I’m confused. I get how the book would replace a card, but how would it replace the gift bag? Did they just attach the book to their unwrapped gift? Or you mean the book *was* the gift?

    send a note card with the invitation and have them write their best parenting advice?
    write down a recipe for their favorite freezer meal so she can prepare ahead of time?

    Are people local? If so, they could create a calendar that details what days each of them will come by to bring food or help with some task. Monday, Auntie Emily cleans the bathroom and Uncle Albert brings his famous spaghetti sauce. Tuesday, Cousin Melanie takes care of the baby while mom and dad shower and take naps and Cousin Johnny goes out for groceries. Or whatever. Everyone could also chip in a small amount for a gift card to someplace like Target where new parents can always find things they need. Another idea if you have someone crafty with free time on their hands in your family – everyone decorates and puts messages on quilt squares and someone sews them together to make a quilt.

    I love the quilt square idea! We did this for our wedding, and it is so special to have those messages to last throughout your life.
