I am only recently becoming a baby shower expert {which is terrifying… as I feel nowhere near ready for children of my own}… with the slew of showers, I found the best route to go was to personalize the gift in the form of a DIY gift basket.  Buy a large basket in a gender appropriate color {here, pink for a little girl}… the basket can later serve to hold baby clothes or diapers.  Line the basket with a baby blanket {much more fun than the usual tissue paper or raffia lining} and fill it full of color coordinated items.  For this basket, I combined pink and green and floral and leopard prints.  Also, make sure to include a festive card!
