A month before I was due to have my daughter, my mom, my grandmother and my elderly neighbor put together a babyshower for me. It meant alot to me that I had one, as I know lots of people don't have alot of friends and family in order to have one. Even if mine consisted of more my ex's family than mine, and only two of my friends. But what meant the most, was that one of my ex's Aunts thought long and hard about the gift she was going to get us. She actually got us two. One was a wooden box with a scrapbook look of a babies bedroom with my daughters name on it. The other gift was this magnetic train, made of the letters of my daughters name. It's so unique! I didn't even know things like this could be made / bought!! But I absolutely love it!! It's definitely my favorite babyshower gift. Although it's very long when put together. Lol. Did you have a babyshower? Did you have a favorite gift? Even if it was just a simple blanket or rattle?

Lol, thats good. Some people only have one or two, even if they have more kids than that. As most people know not many people will keep coming to tje same persons showers with gifts.

Well my son is 28 so my baby shower was a long time ago lol. One gift I remember came from my husband's boss..and it was a little race car outfit. It was the cutest thing! I got a lot of stuffed animals from co workers, and my mom crocheted a baby blanket.

Lovely gifts. I never heard of such gifts either, she thought a lot about these gifts, which are unique. No baby shower, I don't have child.

Yes. She made the boxed one. Not sure if she made the train one or not.
