So why are diaper cakes for baby showers becoming more and more popular these days? One reason could be that people who have traditionally purchased clothes are coming to the realization that the newborn will quickly outgrow the clothes before they even get a chance to wear them. These adorable cakes for a baby shower offer a truly unique appeal, yet is a practical and functional gift that can be tied into any theme.
Parent (s) usually have certain preferences when it comes to big-ticket items like cribs, strollers, and car seats, something that suits their style and personality. Immediate family members who are familiar with the tastes of the parent (s) typically purchase these gifts. Unfortunately, this leaves everyone else with a sizable void in terms of really cool and practical baby gifts to buy.
My experience has taught me 4 important reasons that I would like to share with you as to why these cakes are THE perfect gift for anyone faced with the prospect of securing a gift that is practical, inexpensive, fits any theme and most of all .. is memorable.
1. Diaper Cakes for Baby Showers are Practical
It is a fact that new babies require diapers … and lots of them! Trust me, after 5 kids of my own diapers are one commodity that you want an ample supply of, and will be an ongoing expense for at least the next 2-3 years. Granted, a diaper cake is not going to make much of a dent in the supply, but it will be something the new mom can use from the get-go since these cakes are made with, well, diapers … as well as many other necessities like bathing supplies.
2. Diaper Cakes for Baby Showers are Inexpensive
My dad used to say, "What am I made of money?" What am I saying, he still does! Let's face it … as much as we would love to pamper the new mom with everything she will ever need to care for her newborn, we need to face the fact that we are not made of money. Thankfully, diaper cakes are reliably inexpensive to buy. With a bit of creativity, you could even design one of your own!
3. Diaper Cakes for Baby Showers Match Any Theme
These days diaper cakes are being used as a focal point of baby showers pulling together all of the elements of the theme into a beautiful and / or whimsical centerpiece. You can usually purchase one "off the shelf" to fit the theme or have it customized. If you possess the creative gene, consider making it yourself. Nothing is more precious or can match that personal touch than a cake that YOU created.
4. Diaper Cakes for Baby Showers Make a Memorable Gift
One measure of it being a memorable gift is when you visit the home of the recipient and find it still in one piece … the cake I mean! Parents and new moms often fall in love with the theme from the shower and seek to preserve that memorable event by incorporating the theme into the newborns nursery with the diaper cake as a decorative keepsake.
Well, I believe I have made a strong case for why diaper cakes for baby showers make great gifts, especially if you are strapped for ideas. As I pointed out that they are practical, inexpensive, will fit any theme and is bound to be the hot topic of discussion around the water cooler.
