of cute items that you can make yourself as well as individual products and complete gift sets for shoppers with very little time to devote to putting together a collection of items to match the new mother’s choice of whale crib sets and nursery decorations.

Our baby whale gifts ideas are to assist friends of the mother to be who would rather their gift be personalized rather than to present a pre-packaged set of infant clothing or bath items. Even if you don’t make your own whale theme baby shower gifts; buying each item separately takes thought and your friend will recognize and appreciate that you took the time to consider each and every item in your baby shower gift basket.

Here are some baby whale gifts ideas that you may want to consider.

Pick up an aqua and yellow Fisher Price Whale of a Tub or a cute, whale baby tub in some other brand that you can fill with any number of whale themed gifts and clothing for an infant. The whale shaped tub will make a huge splash! Fill the tub with baby shampoo, mild soap, a personalized hooded bath towel and some fish bath toys. The total cost of your whale theme gift will be less than even the most inexpensive, boutique baby whale theme gift set and there is the added benefit of knowing that you made it yourself.

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Knick Knacks, Crafts and Gifts

One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Knick Knacks Crafts Gifts


After spending an afternoon reading books to my daughters, I had the idea that One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Knick Knacks by Dr. Seuss would make great gifts. The storybook's characters and fish in the pictures pictures would be easy to paint in primary colors. So, crafts would be a piece of cake that even a beginner could master! Can you imagine how cool an entire One Fish Two Fish themed gift basket might be?

You might paint some wall plaques in a One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss design for a kid's bedroom wall or buy some wooden drawer pulls, paint them white using a few coats of paint and decorate them with a few of your favorite characters or at the very least, the ones that are easy to draw. If your One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish crafts project is for a shower, pick up some fabric paint and use your painting skills on the front of a pair of overalls or a onesie.

To put a finishing touch on your collection of gifts, tuck a few One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish Knick Knacks, stickers and a copy of the Dr. Seuss book inside just in case the recipient needs a little background on the theme of your basket.

easter party decorations centerpiece ideas

From bunnies to buttercups and daffodils, Easter party decorations are some of my favorites. Dyed eggs, plastic grass and a pretty basket with a bow are never as pretty as in early spring when the colors are so fresh and vivid.

Another thing I love about an Easter baby shower or kids’ birthday party is the fact that decorations are a trip to the holiday aisle at the discount store away. Here are some Easter party decorating ideas that I have used in the past that did the trick for a very cheap price.


One way to stretch your party’s budget is to have centerpieces that can be presented to guests as party favors at the end of the festivities. For an adult’s birthday, pretty clay pots of tulips are lovely (not to mention inexpensive). I’ve seen tulip centerpieces for weddings and receptions that were very elegant as well as informal parties. For a child’s birthday party individual baskets with a chocolate bunny, marshmallow chicks and some chocolate eggs will work and for a shower; what could be better than a cute baby bunny figurine?


Your Easter party plates might be shaped like Easter eggs, bunny rabbits or solid color items that present no danger of clashing with your other Easter party decorations. Colorful matching cutlery and confetti or small foil wrapped chocolate eggs scattered on top of a pretty tablecloth will put the finishing touches on the party’s d├ęcor and make for a quick and easy cleanup when the party’s over.


Before you buy new Easter party decorations, sort through your stash of Easter basket filler and home decorations that you have packed up in storage bins. Those little yellow chicks and white bunny rabbits might be just the right size to fill a spot on the guest table. Another area you should not overlook is your kid’s collection of Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit figurines to use as Easter decorations. However, if you are searching for ideas on how to decorate an Easter party for kids, you should focus on non-breakable Easter decorations and probably not risk the chance of your collectibles being damaged.

Sock monkey kit doll kit

I have some excellent suggestions for sock monkey baby gifts in price categories ranging from over $100 to under $10. Your eyes are not deceiving you, there are some cute, little sock monkey gifts that your friends will enjoy as nursery decorations or toys for that will delight age groups from infants to toddlers and beyond.

We have some recommendations for more expensive items but don’t despair because I plan to work our way down to the stuff that is downright cheap, but might take a little of your time to put them together. And as always, I always recommend the combination of several inexpensive sock monkey gifts in a baby gift basket rather than a single item wrapped in a package. A basket is so much more festive and original because you put some thought into it and personalized it.

Here’s my list of sock monkey gift ideas!

- Now there’s an oxymoron for you; sock monkeys made to look like socks rather than socks made to look like monkeys. One of the least expensive sock monkey baby gifts is slippers or baby crib socks. They are cute as well as practical and a newborn looks so precious lounging in the crib or cradle wearing little shoes that match his or her sock monkey theme baby bedding set.

- Okay, I know that this may not be the most creative or unique sock monkey gift idea, but in this case the obvious should not be over looked.

- A complete kit that includes all the stuff that mom needs to make her own doll for her kids. Or if you are a better crafter perhaps it would be better for you to pick up a sock monkey
kit and make it for her?

- Buy some plain wooden knobs, craft paint, draw a sock monkey pattern to make the drawings consistent and start painting. Sock monkey drawer pulls will pull the most boring of dressers in line with the rest of the kids’ sock monkey decorations for a very cheap price.

– Pick up some fat quarters of sock monkey quilting fabric and make a patchwork quilt. If you are in a pinch for time, a four patch pattern that is tied rather than hand quilted will be just as appreciated as one of heirloom quality especially if it is used as the liner in your sock monkey baby gift basket.
