What are some unique ways to share wisdom at a baby shower?

Cupid’s Advice:

Baby showers are a great time to provide the future mommy with much-needed supplies and advice. Providing her with a lifetime supply of diapers would be fantastic, but what she would appreciate even more is thoughtful and creative gifts from her guests. Here are three suggestions from Cupid on how to provide wisdom for the mother-to-be:

1. Make a book: A mom-to-be can only handle so many diapers, and while they are a great gift, something homemade is even more special. Consider creating a book of advice for the special guest, which contains things from her friends and family — just make sure that the individuals giving the advice have had children themselves.

2. Diaper drawing: A unique, fun and crafty activity is to have your guests write a piece of wisdom on a diaper so that when the mother and/or father changes their baby’s diaper, they will learn a new piece of wisdom with each change.

3. Pass it along:  Paste pictures of each guest’s child, if they have one, on a wall and give the mommy-to-be pieces of paper with a piece wisdom that that mommy learned with their child. Then have them try to match the piece of wisdom to the child’s picture.
