Gifts for Mom-to-be

Diaper Cakes are always wonderful gifts to help mom-to-be prepare with those first few days with her tiny one. But most of the time family and friends drown the baby’s parents with all the great things a baby needs. But what if someone wanted to give a gift for the mom to enjoy?

Here are a few ideas for baby shower gifts that would be great for mom.

Spa Day – A gift certificate for a great massage or facial. Pregnancy can really have a toll on the body and face.

Majamas - Buy her a pretty gown or pajama for the hospital so she can look radiant after the baby’s delivery.

Diary - For mom who loves memorabilia, give her a calendar, journal, or diary to keep track of all those little kicks and hiccups she is experiencing. Years from now she will enjoy her thoughts and emotions.

Books - For the book worm, give her all types of books she can read and prepare herself for her big arrival.

Gift Certificate to a hair salon can be an excellent choice for a gift. When hormones kick into high gear, a pregnant women’s hair grows a lot faster then normal. And since chemical treatment is out of the question, the mom-to-be might find her self with an urgent need to do something to feel pretty. This could be a great gift for women who loves having their hair flawless at all times.

For the last months before the baby’s arrival, it gets difficult to keep up with chores. Maid Service from a reputable source can be a gift from heaven.

For the husbands, give her a great date. Take her for a nice dinner. Take advantage of the time alone you have. We all know after the baby there will be fewer chances to romance. If it’s your second, then you know this is a must do, since it will now be double duty with baby number two.

Family tree - There are these beautiful tree like decorations that you can put pictures of your family. Great way to display your family tree.

Trainer or gym membership - If the mom-to-be is into staying fit and seems to be on the down low in the last few days of her pregnancy because she feels she has lost control of her body, remind her she is beautiful and give her a gift of a personal trainer or the gym. This will help her stay motivated and she will know she has the help to be back into her jeans in 6 months.

Love - The one thing that would be the best gift for all moms-to-be is the support, help, consideration, and love from all the people that love her. Understand her mood swings, her forgetful ways due to the pregnancy, her clumsiness, and food cravings. Help with the baby’s arrives, especially for new moms, it can be completely overbearing. Encourage her to stay positive and cherish the moment.

Obviously from my blog, my area of passion is babies and diaper cakes. But moms-to-be sometimes need a little Rest and Relaxation too.

Small Diaper Cake - 1 Tier

A perfect way to show your co-worker your appreciation for their baby's homecoming would be a perfect 1 tier diaper cake. There are 4 sizes offered, cupcakes, small cakes, 2 tier diaper cakes, and large diaper cakes for anything bigger then a 2 tier.

The small "1 tier diaper cakes" tend to be very popular because many times you just want a little something to give just about anyone. Nice big size diaper cakes are usually the hits at baby showers, but what if you just want to show your co-worker a gesture at the office, or you are going to go see someone at the hospital and you have already given them everything at the baby shower? Well diapers are a huge necessity and would never be of waste.

This cute Koala Diaper Cake was created to add to my collection to sell on but I ended up getting an order and the person considered it perfect for the occasion.

This small diaper cake "1 tier diaper cake" is made up of all the following essentials:
18 diapers, 1 (4oz) bottle, 2 wash cloths, 1 baby powder size(1.5oz), and 1 Carter's Koala Plush toy.

What is perfect also is no 2 are ever alike!
So you can always be sure of a unique gift.

Diaper Cake on Etsy

On the 10th month anniversary of this blog I have decided to put my first diaper cake for sale on I started building diaper cakes about 3 years ago when I was expecting my little girl. I was looking online for cute ideas to decorate her room and there in the middle of my search I came to discovery the famous diaper cakes.

My first diaper cake was built for a gift I had for a girl that was due only a month after I was and now looking back, that diaper cake was the true test drive to what later became a passion.

These days I love making them and they have truly been successful and loved by every expecting mother that has received one. Most of my requests have been local by word of mouth.

So I decided that it was time to start a new era in my quest to see where my passion for building diaper cakes can go.

So to see my latest creation go to

This cute diaper cake is the perfect gift to give a co-worker or friend. The Carter doggy sits so perfect making this cake adorable to even use as a table center piece.
