One of the most difficult things about buying a shower gift for a baby is that more and more parents are opting to not ask if they are having a boy or a girl, so the birth is more of a surprise for the entire family. However, that definitely puts you, as a baby shower guest, at a disadvantage. That is until now when you learn about the most unique baby shower gift possible that will be perfect for either a boy or a girl.
Have You Heard of a Diaper Cake?
One of the most unique baby shower gift options out there has the rather unusual name of “diaper cake”. However, if you actually look at the presentation you will quickly see how they got their name.
There are many different types of diaper cakes from those definitely for boy or definitely for girls or those that are gender neutral. You can also select from a one or two layer option and add different accents and decorations to fully customize the look.
What Is a Diaper Cake?
At first glance a diaper cake really looks like a cake, at least from a distance. This unique baby shower gift is made from diapers that are folded around each other to make a round bottom layer of the “cake”. They are tied in place with a large, wide ribbon that is carefully chosen as part of the theme of the cake.
If you order a double layer baby diaper cake, which is truly a centerpiece for a baby gift shower table, you have another, slightly smaller layer on top of the base layer.
From here each diaper cake is different. They typically all have some type of decorations on top, a plush toy, some baby necessities such as baby shampoo, wipes lotion and baby wash. Then most diaper cakes will also have something special for baby as well, perhaps a rattle or a cute fork and spoon set.
With this unique baby shower gift both Mom and Dad and the new arrival will all have things with the gift they can enjoy. These cakes are perfect to give you have to ship the gift and they can be personalized to your specifications.
