The $20 or Under Baby Shower Gift Challenge

Every time I attend a Baby Shower, I want to treat mama and baby to something special. I hope my gift will be fun, useful, and thoughtful. If the gift is a bit out of the norm of standard disposable diapers, rattles, and onesies, even better.

While I would prefer to pick out gifts without being budget conscious, cost is also a deciding factor. My hope is to find a special gift within a specific budget, which is often challenging. This is especially challenging during the seasons when it feels a baby boom has hit my friends and family.

I decided to visit Kelly’s Closet with a $20 gift challenge to see what kind of unique shower gifts I could put together. As expected, Kelly’s Closet did not let me down. I discovered a number of fun and unique ways to treat a friend for $20 or under!

Help your friend get started with cloth diaper laundry on the right foot! This sampling will help her discover her water quality type, try different detergent options, and dry more efficiently.

I really like to have bibs and burp cloths as a baby shower gift for my friends because this is essential or vitally needed by babies who are already eating solid foods.
