The best baby shower gift I got was the diaper cake a friend made for me. I am still waiting for this little guy to come into the world.

Lilian said...

Not married and have no kids so I don't have a favorite baby shower gift yet. I always give out baby stuff though diapers, bottles, pumps :) This stamp set has been on my wish list now and I would love to use it making thank you one-sheet notecards for friends and a few onsies. Thanks!

Lisa said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is the motorized rocking chair that people always put on their register. I like it because I know it gets a lot of use, and when I volunteer to babysit, I know I can use it too! :O)

Mary Dawn said...

my favorite baby shower gift to give is a diaper pail...and the reason i need this set is because i will die if i don't win, i mean, seriously, look at that baby giraffe! he needs me

Jewels said...

My Favorite (since most people I know dont do any form of scrapbooking) is to make a simple 15 page scrapbook called "My Pregnancy Journal" I make pages for all the different milestones of pregnancy. a page to document how you found out and told your DH, the belly pics, ultrasound pics etc...all the way to babys first Photo. It is so nice to have that to cherish one of the best times in life!

mitchells2000 said...

Since God hasn't chosen to give me any babies to hold yet (I have 9 in Heaven!), I don't have any fav. baby shower gifts. However, I need this set because I have a brand new nephew, and two more nieces/nephews on the way this year. Added to that, it seems like everyone I know is having a baby, so I have LOTS of baby projects to do! :-) Please pick me!

Kim said...

I don't have a favorite baby shower gift.I don't have much for baby or kid stamps, and this would start rounding out my collection! These stamps are just adorable and I would use them often! Thank you for the chance to win!!

Sheila D said...

I just went to a baby shower and someone had given a basket filled with childrens books. It was to help start the baby's library. They were displayed so nicely and were all sorts of colors and sizes. I thought that was a great gift.

Charmaine (CharmWarm) said...

I think my favorite baby shower gift is actually a gift for mom! When I had my baby shower, my very good friend got a couple of nice outfits for the baby, but she got a gift card for me to one of my favorite clothing stores. I just thought that was SO thoughtful. Since then, I've always put in a gift for "mom" since she needs a little pampering too! :)

Amy said...

Hi Alli! Since I haven't been to a baby shower in like, a million years, I'll have to choose to tell you instead why I need this adorable set! I need it because I don't have ANY cute baby stamps, and every card maker worth anything must have a cute baby set with which to make cards! I've gone long enough I say! Time to win this blog candy! Thanks sweetie!

Hugs,
Amy

sandygail said...

I love to give a cute outfit if I know the sex, but if not, I like to give a gift card. I need this set of baby stamps!

cmustopa said...

Well, with one daughter who just got married in May, and a son getting married next April, I have a feeling I'm going to be needing a cute baby set like this before long! It's adorable -- I love the eyes on the faces. Hope I win it (and hope I need it soon!)

Tracy said...

I haven't been to shower in a while but I make up a package that includes the book "Super Baby Food", a stick blender and some ice cube trays. The book has fabulous ideas for making your own baby food, the blender is a quick and easy way to mash up the food and they ice cube trays are for freezing the food in small portions. It is always well received and definitely different from the rest.

Maria said...

My favourite shower gift is the diaper pail. This is one gift every new mother needs until the baby is almost toilet trained. I'd love the stamp set as it is I have a lot of scrapbooking to do for my girls as well as cards for a few cousins having babies this year.

Krisstee said...

I am way to old to remember my favorite shower gift. In those days the gifts were small........not like today. In my day a tin of Johnson's Baby Powder (there was no other choice, lol)and a jar of Vaseline versus the car seat that my daughter got 4 years ago.
Having said all that I am never too old to make cards and gifts for expectant Mothers. This would be a fabulous stamp set to add to me collection. There are sooooooooo many choices in this set. Thanks for the chance to win it!

Shelly said...

My favorite baby shower gifts were the collection of childrens books that I received from each guest. They were asked to bring their favorite book with a special message to Mother & baby written inside!

Amber said...

I almost ALWAYS alter a frame to give as baby shower gifts! I usually find out ahead of time what the "theme" of the nursery is and taylor it to that theme!
Thanks for the chance to win that fun stamp set, it's so cute!

Kerry J. said...

My fave baby shower gift to give are Canadian made Robeez. I usually give them in a size up (6-12 mo.'s). Love this set and everything you've done with it!

Lisa & Penny said...

I love giving a gift basket with a theme--stuff for the bath for example. It's more fun that way, and of course you must have a stamped card to go with it. I would love to win this set. It's on my list of "must buys" :-)

Laura said...

My favorite baby shower gift was a hand knitted sweater from my Grandmother. ALthough my grandmother had passed away years before, my grandmother had knitted one for me before she died. She had even sewed in a special lable "made with love from Grandma Kruk". I remember getting the package, and being confused when I looked at the card, the opened it and well, then came the tears. Thanks for letting me share the memory:)
This set is really cute.

Joan E. said...

I don't have any baby related stamps so this would be a great addition to have. I would hope to use it some day soon as I would love to be a grandma.

Heather said...

Hi! My favorite baby shower gift was getting the diaper bag and then filling it with things like onesies, baby bottles, pacifiers, washcloths, diapers, wipes, etc. I tied each thing individually with ribbon and stuffed them all neatly in the bag. The mom-to-be loved it and it was quite a hit at the shower.

SmilynStef said...

I love getting hand-made burp clothes that are a cloth diaper on one side and wonderuful vintage-like fabrics on the other side ... I also get gift certificates for their favorite restaurant, so they can treat themselves to a night out.

lisascreativecorner said...

What a CUTE set!! I love making up a basket for my mom-to-be friends with lots of the necessities. I usually put a receiving blanket at the bottom and fill it with things that are either on their registry or things that I know they will need such as little nail clippers, diapers, baby wash, a cute outfit, wash cloths, etc. They always love it and I always have fun making them. *Ü*

Anonymous said...

My favorite gift to give is a home made baby blanket with a matching bib and burp cloth. I would love to win the stamp set because in 7 weeks my daughter is going to have a baby and I don't have any baby stamp sets yet. Good luck to everyone can't wait to see who wins.

Chrissy said...

My fav baby shower gift is to make a homemade quilt for the little one! I also need a baby stamp set since I am just at the age where all my friends are starting to have kids! Thanks for all the inspiration you post on your blog!

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

My fave baby shower gift to give: (I just did this this year for 2 showers as the co-hostess!): First, to make the invites for the shower in the 'theme', make matching thank you cards, and a mini advice album that matches the cards. Each guest has a card to fill out (also matches theme) to write down their advice for the new mom (left side page), then I take photos of each guest with the mommy getting her gifts, (to be right side of the album) and after the shower I send the photos! The album is given at the shower along with the thank you cards... and the advice page is one of the games... the mommy reads the advice out loud and one card is chosen randomly for a prize.
And happily, both showers were a have been a hit!

Kathleen said...

My favorite gift to give is children's books---if it's a boy, I HAVE to give Richard Scarry's "Cars and Trucks and things that go"---it was a gift given to me at my son's shower and it was his FAVORITE in those 2-5 year old years. Classic children's books never go bad---you can keep them for your grandchildren! I LOVE that set! Thanks for the chance~

kamewh said...

My favorite gift to give at baby showers is definitely diapers and wipes- a very practical and useful gift!

Miraty said...

The best baby gift I ever received was a Diaper Genie. But I also think that getting Flander's Buttocks Ointment is an awesome gift.

Annette said...

I love to give crocheted baby blankets.

Mary Duffek said...

Alli I really need this baby set....#1 because it is too stinkn' cute!!! #2 you can do way more than just baby stuff with this stamp set...I have tons of baby and non baby cards floating around in my head. =)
My favorite baby gift to give are practical gifts that are packaged cute....The next baby shower I want to make the diaper cake that I've seen floating around the web.

Thanks for a chance to win!

Christine said...

My favorite gift to give (to new moms) is a basket filled with items for "a new mom's survival kit" along with a necessitiy, packages of DIAPERS!

Anonymous said...

My favorite baby shower gift that I received was a basket filled different clothes- I use the basket as a laundry bin! Another friend gave me a huge box of diapers and another of wipes- so great! I loved to receive clothes in larger sizes too, like 12 months or 24 months...it seems like you get a lot in the tiny sizes because they are so cute to buy, then you end up buying a lot yourself later on. The stamps are so cute!!!
Melissa

Erin said...

Favorite gifts to give are books. I'm a teacher, too! I REALLY want, no NEED this set because I have SO many women in my life who are expecting. My husband is a pastor, our friends are having babies like crazy, and it is contagious at my school, too! Please, please, pick me random number generator! This set is SO cute!

Jodi said...

I love to give personalized piggy banks. One can never start saving too soon. Plus with the it being personalized it makes it extra special. Thanks for the opportunity to win this adorable set.

Clair & Sharni said...

What a great blog! - i have just found you & have now added you to my faves...would love to win the stamp set as i dont have any like that at all...very different from what i have seen before.

Denise (denidill) said...

I have not been to a baby shower in ages ... no one I know is having babies anymore! So I cannot even remember what I have given as a gift in the past. But I do know why this set would be great. It's darn cute and I don't have many baby sets, aside from 1 GinaK baby carriage and 1 SU! set with 3 images. Not a lot to choose from! If I don't go to baby showers, why do I need to make baby cards? I sell them at work to all the young gals!

Kristine said...

For first time parents, my favourite gift to give is "The Baby Book" by Dr. Sears. It is an awesome resource for the millions of questions you have with your first baby.
For subsequent babies, I like to give meals or snacks that can be frozen...casseroles, lasagne, muffins, cookies, etc.
What a cute stamp set...thanks for having this contest!!

Betty said...

BOOKS! For the baby, books! Board books, chunky books, touchy feely books... My first grandchild could come any day now, and I already have a stack of books for my house, and I gave my son and DIL a stack of books to start reading to Sawyer months ago! He already has his first Bible!
Thanks for the chance to win the stamps!

Pegg S said...

What a cute set! I love to give whatever the soon-to-be-Mom registers for :) Just kidding. I do usually buy something off the registry - but I love buying little things to round out the gift. There are the cutest little leg warmers that come in different patterns now. And for the last baby shower, I made a gift set of thank you cards.

Anonymous said...

I like handmade gifts like quilt and baby blankets. But practical gifts like diapers are awesome too!

amber said...

I like to give a stack of thank you cards with whatever I give the mom so she already has some on hand for the gifts she gets. I also love to stamp a funky onsie.

Tracy said...

My favorite gift to give is a handmade diaper cake! They are so much fun to make and get a great response from the mom-to-be!

Pattie Brown said...

The last gift I gave and the best in my opinion was a handmade quilt. It was my first, so there were a few imperfections. But I thought it was gorgeous. This stamp set would make great cards for any baby gift. Pattie Brown

JaneAnn said...

I have two favorite gifts - books for the baby and a spa gift certificate for the Mother to be...

GabrielaD said...

Wow... I would love this stamp. Thank you for the opporutunity to win it.

As for the best present.... I gave my dear friend a handmade 8x8 album covering the first year of the baby's life. From first moments of life, first bath, first smile, crawling, etc.... all the way to the first birthday. I loved making it (it was an album for a baby girl and I got to play with all the pink goodies -lol I have 2 boys). My friend loved it and has had a lot of fun adding photos to it.

Thanks again for the opportunity to win this stamp...

Gaby

melissa.flieg said...

I haven't been to a baby shower in awhile so I'll tell you why I would like this set instead. I would love to win this set because the images are so cute and I don't have many stamps for baby or shower cards.

TinaH said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a Medical Guide for children aged birth to five years. How many times is a child up in the middle of the night, and you need to figure out what to do for them? I have found one that is a great resource, and everyone to whom I have given it, ALWAYS thanks me more than once. Often, after it has saved them a trip to the Doctor's office! As for the set, I "need" it because it is adorable and I love this style of CHF stamp set! Thanks for the chance to win!
Tina

cadnileb said...

My friends have finally started getting into the phases of our lives where babies are coming out! I haven't yet invested in a baby set yet so I would love to have this set to make awesome baby shower gifts and baby cards for them!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

(oooh, also saw your sneak peek for your upcoming PTI set - super exciting!!!! so glad to see more of your sets!)

Judy said...

I would love to win this set ... my daughter and husband are expecting their first baby in September ... my first grandchild! Thanks for offering it to someone lucky ... hopefully me!

Leah said...

My favorite gift to give is a 12 page scrapbook that highlights baby's first year, month by month. Alot of women I know like the idea of scrapping but don't have the time or desire and I find it a much more meaningful gift than just a plain photo album.

Brenda said...

My favorite baby shower gift was a book of nursery rhymes my husband gave me. I would love this set to use for scrapbooking baby pages. Thanks for the chance.

Michelle said...

Hi Alli!!

I've always given the little crib night-light that plays soothing sounds/music and will come on when the baby cries and then slowly the light/sounds get softer and softer, lulling baby back to sleep. I give a lot of stuff of their registry as well, but whether or not this is on there, I buy it for EVERYONE!

Jenn said...

Ever since I saw this set I have been in love with it. The little dinosaur would be the perfect stamp for little boy cards! And all the baby animals would be perfect for baby memory cans!

Got my fingers crossed!

~liz said...

I love to stock a new baby bag full of baby product for a baby shower gift. Like a gift bag.

Betty said...

I would like this stamp set so I could make cards for my daughter-in-law who is expecting my third grandson in November in Nurnberg, Germany.

Nana (Betty)

Bridget said...

I love giving baby gifts..I love making the new mommy a premade scrapbook for her to just add comments and pictures to..so fun to give and easy for the new mom to capture all those firsts!!

Amy said...

I've never had a baby shower (no kids yet) but would love to give everyone else gifts and cards made with this set! How awesome that you are giving it away! I love CHF!! You rock, Alli.

Anonymous said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is getting a Longaberger Basket and filling it with all kinds of goodies for the little one.......that stamp set would be perfect to use to make a beautiful card to go with the basket full of goodies!! Thanks for the chance!

Hi Alli. I really need this stamp set as my friends are starting to get pregnant and I don't have any baby stamps! I need to get some soon so I can start making some baby cards.

InspiredByInk said...

Hi Alli!
My favorite gift to give is a set of thank you note cards. I am excitedly waiting to try to make a diaper cake w/hidden onesies inside. I haven't had the opportunity to make on yet but should here in a month or so! Wish me luck!

Bobbie *Ü*

Missy said...

You are the kindest person. This is a great set. I had a couple of baby showers and I loved making Lauren Meader's baby onsie flower bouquet. It went off well and everyone who saw it loved them.
I also would like to have this set because I have a new nephew or niece on the way as well as a few more friends who are expecting and I hope someday soon I can say the same thing.

Laura said...

My favorite gift to give for the mom to be is a gift card to be pampered at a day spa after the baby arrives. The stamp set would be perfect for me to make cute little gift card holders.

Tamara said...

I don't have any children, so I can't comment on a favourite gift to receive, and I don't know if people have liked the gifts I have given, so I will tell you why I *need* this set. :)

My friends are all of the age where they have been married for a little while, and careers have been established, and it is now time to start a family. I think that in the next year there will be babies galore. Plus, I am bilingual in French, as are many of my friends, and having a bébé stamp would be GREAT!

Shannan Teubner said...

My best friend is having a baby in Sept. and I'm making invites and thank you's for her, as well as a cute diaper cake. I'd love to use this set!!!

CurlyCraze said...

I NEED this one because I'm throwing a baby shower for my sister soon. I'd love to incorporate these cute stamps in the decor!

Otter said...

None of my friends are stampers...shock, horror, "I KNOW!!" But I will usually make birth announcements for them. I try to make them theme related. This set is very cute!

LeAnn said...

I love giving hand made items that I make - like blankets or afghans.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Melissa said...

My favorite gift to give is a personalized name frame that I make. I usually coordinate it with the nursery colors and theme and then put the baby's name on it and also the stats if it's after the baby has been born. Too fun!

Amy said...

Hi Alli!
Awesome give away!!
My favorite baby shower gifts are an extra large baby blanket that I sew myself, and embroider the babies name on. And a diaper cake.
I'll roll up the diapers, I always use a size 2, and make three tiers. I will wrap the tiers in receiving blankets, and then stuff the cake with all kinds of baby appropriate goodies, soothers, lotions and potions, a bib etc.... It's always topped off with a small stuffed animal. So fun to make, and you always need diapers for baby.

Sarah A said...

My best shower gift was for my second baby- a double jogging stroller. It had belonged to a friend who was finished with it and she passed it along to me rather than buy something new. (And it was purple- my favorite!)

MelissaS said...

My favorite gift to give is books. I pick out board book versions of childhood favorites and add them to a nice basket. When I had my shower, everyone brought their fave childhood book and we still read the messages inside each time we read them. Thanks for sharing!

Cindee Stacey said...

I don't normally leave comments for blog candy, but this is a set I'd really like to have! I love Kim Hughes' style! My favorite baby gift to give is diapers and necessities like that, but I also like to give handmade baby thank yous! Who doesn't need those after you've had a baby?!?! Thanks for the chance to win Alli!

Anonymous said...

The best gift I received was a quilt made by all the members of my quilt guild. It was my favoirte colors and fabrics and is now the favorite of my daughter too!

maria fiscella said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a huge assortment of personalized onesies and hand made baby-themed thank you cards. And so, that's exactly why I hope to win this set. It's stinkin' cute and I just know I could make some fun gifts with it!

Jennifer D said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give would have to be is a diaper cake...it gives me a chance to be creative and the end result will come in very handy for the new little one!

Jennifer Bradley said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is homemade thank you cards for the parents to be to send wither for the shower gifts or gifts for when the baby is born.

Sarah said...

Having just had a baby (my 3rd), I have found the "itzbeen" (http://www.itzbeen.com/) to be super useful. I'd recommend it to anyone.

michelle in mi said...

Since I don't have any kids I always love to shop for special baby shower gifts. I think I get more enjoyment of looking through baby clothes, shoes & toys for the perfect gift than the person getting the gift lol!But I always opt for 'cute' over practical!

Stacy said...

Alli...I NEED this set because I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. There are 7 babies under the age of 3 in my family and another on the way. I make tons of baby themed cards for shower invites, thank you's, birthdays, etc.
I could really use a new set to play with.
Thanks for the chance to win and I love your blog.

Angie said...

Alli, what a great give away! I love this stamp set and I HAVE to have it because I don't have ANY baby sets! Also, my favorite baby shower gift to give is diapers! That way I know the mom will use the gift, and I don't give newborn size because babies grow out of that size so quickly. I usually give size 1 since that size seems to be needed sooner than most parents expect!

Ashley said...

My fav baby shower gift to give is something I made of course! It is typically a scrapbook that is ready for mom to include all pictures and a personalized gift bag and card. Sometimes I give onesies and use the egg box at Papertrey Ink too!

Terri E. said...

I really like to give books. They are easily overlooked. My daughter's favorite is Suggle Puppy by Sandra Boyton.

It's a good life!
Terri E.

ElyBlair said...

I need this stamp set because it is just so gorgeous and my cousin is having a baby in 3 months!

xiumaiyuki said...

I love getting diapers for baby shower! you can never have enough of those. also, I love getting those cute babies clothing!!!

Caroline said...

My favorite gift at my baby shower has having had a fortune teller come in and read all our palms (LOL!). She told me I would have an incredibly active, math proficient boy who would be the spitting image of my brother. That was pretty precise, eh?? :P

BTW, coocoo! You're it :)

Charlotte said...

I always like to get something big and fill it up with other items. One time I got a baby bathtub and filled it with washcloths, bath toys, a bathtime book, baby wash and lotion. Another time I got a diaper bag and put travel wipes, diapers, diaper rash cream, some little toys and a book.

Anonymous said...

I have difficulty attending baby showers ever since we had to go through IVF several times trying for a 2nd child with no success. Therefore I tend to try and make a thoughtful gift and card for these occasions. I could certainly add to my limited repetoire of new babe things. Thanks for the chance!
Betty-Ann

Juanita said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a basket of necessities. Q-tip, baby shampoo, lotion, booger sucker, brush, thermomiter and all that little stuff that gets forgotten till you NEED it in a mini emergency.

Stephanie said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give are the practical things. Like bottles, diapers, and binkies.

Marilyn said...

My favorite gift is a cute flannel receiving blanket that I make, usually in some fun pattern. My favorite fabrics lately have been pink camo and blue camo, with a super soft minky fabric on the opposite side. I do decorative stitching on the edges, too. If the gift is for a very special baby (to me) then I make a quilt for the baby. I also love to make "taggie" blankets and cute burp rags. I have very few baby stamps, and this set is just adorable.

donnaecrum@msn.com said...

Well, I am in a church where the average age is 31 - lots of babies being born! As a pastor's wife, there are a whole lot of greetings to extend. This set would be fabulous to use!

Anonymous said...

I usually give either a knotted feece blanket or a handmaid baby quilt. Love that baby stamp set . Thanks for the chance.

Cindy Holshouser said...

My favorite shower gift is a customized monogrammed onesie for the new baby. Love this cute stamps set - thanks for the chance to win it:)

Judith Novak said...

My standard baby shower gift usually is a hand designed coupon book. It is made up of three separate coupons for loving and personalized new baby care (if there are other children already in the family they are.. of course.. included) so the new Mom and Dad can have an evening.. or afternoon.. or whole day if they choose just to themselves. Its been a popular gift and pure joy for me!

neodreamer said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is the most adorable outfit I can find (if I know if it is a boy or a girl), a pack of diapers the next size up from newborn and something special for the mom to be.

Karen said...

I have to have this set because I don't have any baby stamps. It dawned on me recently that my kids and nieces and nephews are now of the age to start their own families. I am totally unprepared to re-enter the world of baby showers and congrats on your (fill in the blank). Thanks for this opportunity to win.

I love making diaper cakes! They look good for the shower and are so useful.

Hi Alli~
The best shower gift I LOVE to give is a scrapbook for the new baby.....friends get together before the baby is born and each person does a 2 page layout for the mom-to-be to add pictures later! This stamp set would work SUPER on the scrapbook pages for new mommies!! Thanks for a very inspiring BLOG!!
Hugs,
Keri

leenda said...

A gift that keeps on giving is a highchair. That's one of my favorite gifts to give.

Angela said...

I love giving comfy baby clothes-onesies and "soft" pants. I found I had so many dressy outfits as gifts but not enough everyday stuff so that's what I like to give!

Lilian said...

my favorite baby shower gift to give away is a diaper cake, they are so fun to make, they are practical for the mom and they are beautiful when displayed! :)

thank you for the chane to win the adorable set!

Cynthia said...

The diaper geni!! Do they still have that thing I loved it! Cynthia

Allison said...

Wow! What a super cute stamp set!
I personally could use this stamp set as tons of my friends are having babies. I'm only 24 so I still feel way too young to be having kids, but apparently I'm the only one who thinks that way judging my friends (and my Mom trying to get grandbabies out of me)!

Justine said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a homemade flannel blanket with satin edges. In one of the corners I always use my machine to embroider the babies full name with birthday written below. I have seen these become their favorite blankies to drag around. I love the Silouette lady in this set. She is so in right now.

unvme618 said...

my favorite baby shower gift to give would be a stroller and car seat. i know some people might not be able to afford it, so i like to help in any way i can! thanks for the chance to win!!

Diane said...

I love to give newborn baby socks and an outfit or two. It is just so much fun shopping for a new little one. Lately I have also been making a set of thank you notes for the new mom to use. Thanks for the chance to win this adorable baby set. You can never have too many baby images for cards!

lilhmomma said...

I absolutely love this set. I have been out of the baby loop for a while but my 22 year old daughter's friends seem to be having a baby boom. Would love to have this one!

Jennifer Love said...

No babies for me, thanks! :D But I like to give gifts for my friends and family who has the babies! I usually give those HUGE packs of Pampers along with a goody basket full of fun things like a comb and brush set, powders and cleaners and creams, itty bitty teeny weenie socks (I have a thing for baby feet..LOL!)...I just cram it full. Oh and the basket that I've used the two previous times have been little red wagons so even the basket part can be used. :D

Charmaine said...

What an adorable set. I would love to have this set as there seems to be so many people around me that are having babies...thank you cards are always a nice addition to any baby gift. Mom's always appreciate them.

My favorite baby gift to give are jammies....the little newborn ones with feet in them or the gowns. I love little clothing!!

I really like decorating for my friends and people I work with for a baby shower. My favorite thing to give for a baby shower is a diaper cake. These stamps would really make great embellishments for the cake.. My mind is running wild with all the things I could do with that set...Please!!!

My favorite shower gift to give is this book that you add a photo and a little about each year from birth through 21. It gives even the non-scrapbooking moms something to keep at least birthday milestones! This set is so cute!!! I would love to have it to use for all the baby showers I get to go to!

sarita said...

this is a very cute set - anyway the last baby shower i went to was for my first grandson! as a gift i gave the outfit my son (the baby's father)-wore home from the hospital. The mom pulled the outfit out and i "tried" to explain what it was - i broke down! WOW!! came as quite a surprise to me that i would do that! anyway - they have another baby due end of sept - and i would love to be able to make some onesies for him since i don't have another outfit to give to him - andyes it's a him!! :^)
thanks for the opportunity to win this.

I love making the cards for my gifts... I go all out. As for the gifts, I like giving embellished burp cloths, handmade bibs and receiving blankets. They are much nicer, bigger, better than those you get in the store.

Inkylin said...

My favorite gift to give at a baby shower is onsies. You can never have too many of them.

Robyn said...

I love to give thank you notes in addition to my gift and that way everyone can fill out their own envelope and saves the new mom loads of time! My DD is nearing the age of having children as well as her friends too so this set would get lots of use!

Becky Rusher said...

I love to give the mom a little care package in addition to the baby gift. Something with lotions, soaps, etc... Moms deserve a bit of pampering! :) I *love* all of Kim's stamp sets, but this one is on my wish list. It's absolutely darling!

queenoftheclick said...

I always give a set of cute onesies to the expectant mother because all babies need them.

I recently got pregnant and I haven't announced it to our family yet so I would love to win this stamp set. I'm waiting to tell them because I want to make sure everything is okay.

Nicole Rumsey said...

I love baby showers, especially ones that are held after the baby is born. That way we all get to cuddle the new bundle of joy, as oposed to staring at mom's big tummy. I give to my family a gospel abc book, that I scrapbook. It is really fun to put together and a great gift that they can use growing up.

Alyssa Walters said...

I always try to give the mom-to-be a gift that I couldn't have survived my 3 kids without -- an exersaucer! No JOKE!!! And I would LOVE to own this stamp set, because in addition to my own 3 kids (all younger than 5) I have 4 nephews (2 within the last year) and another one due any minute....oh the birthday cards/scrapbooking pages/cute onesies and hats I could spoil them with designed with this set!!!!!!

tojoco said...

My favorite gift to give to a mom-to-be is the Gymboree soft blanket. I still get comments from moms that the blanket is their child's favorite.

Thanks for a chance to win this set.

Linda said...

Alli,
What a perfect RAK. Today, I found out that my nephew and his wife are expecting! I hope I win because I will ink these stamps up right away if I do!

My favorite baby shower gift was a set of silverware! :) (Baby spoon, toddler spoon and fork and junior spoon, fork and knife) I've used it every day since my 6 year old was beginning to eat baby food! :)

Tina W said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a care kit for the mommy-to-be for her hospital stay. I find a cute tote and stuff it with things she may need like lip stuff, tissue, nursing pads, notebook, etc. One of my friends made me a care package and brought it to me at the hospital and it was one of the greatest things I received during my stay! The stamp set would be so awesome to make cute cards to go with my care packs! :o)

curtis said...

I like to sew a quilted flannel baby blanket as a shower gift. I just attended a shower for our god child who is having her third child and she still has the blanket I made for her when she was born. I also like to make a scrap book for the new baby so all they have to do is add the pictures. The stamps that you are giving away would work nice with my projects. Thanks for a great give away. Susan N.

Jenny Mick said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is a little (6x6) scrapbook that has a page for each of the typical doctor visits (ie. 1 week, 1 month, 2months, 3 months, 6months, etc.) and on each page is room for a picture, height and weight and milestones reached. That stamp set would PERFECTLY fit in my baby-theme scrapbooks!!!!! (ie. pick me pick me pick me!)

carmen said...

I have no kids but im always making invites and thank yous for all my friends.....I would love to use this set for them

Anita said...

My favorite baby shower gift is to give a little scrap album (about 10 pgs) that I create specifically for the lucky parents. I do a special page that includes the baby name and meaning as well as a final page letting them know I will also photograph the baby once it is born. (I do photography on the side)

Lara said...

No kids for me, but all of my friends are starting to have babies. This set would be PERFECT for their cards. Oh, and the animals are adorable with their big eyes!!!

My favorite shower gift is usually a handmade baby blanket. I have given several and when I was pregnant I had received several.

Also, I have several friends who are pregnant, a couple who just had babies and my daughter (who happens to be 15) loves turtles, so it would even work for her! LOL

Thanks for the opportunity!

My fav baby shower gift to give is a decorated photo box, filled with hand stamped thank-you notes and a journal for the new mom, along with an adorable outfit for baby.
I love this set! Every single image is so adorable!

Winxy Escapes said...

my fave shower gift was coupon books of free meals and one family member filled my freezer while i was in the hospital with meals ready to go and to me this was the best as I didnt have a lot of time to cook was so tired . and I need this set because my best friend is having twins =)

Kim Gasper said...

I need this stamp set so I can MAKE my favorite baby shower gift (whatever that might be). It's so darn cute! Plus, I could use a little baby-making kharma!

Brooke S said...

Can you believe I don't even own a baby set. that's a great reason. I also think it's stinkin' cute.. My favorite thing to give at as a baby shower gift is a stack of baby cards for the mommy to use for thank you cards. An even better Idea is to set up a table for all the guests to write their own addresses on the envelopes and leave them in a little basket at the shower so the mommy doesn't even have to address and look up all the cards. She can enjoy her baby.

Hi Alli,

I love giving baby clothes! I usually go overboard b/c they are just so cute! I've eyed this set and appreciate you offering it up as blog candy. Have a great day.

One of my favorite baby gifts is to make several things for the mother to use in a baby scrapbook. I use stamped images and embellish them. I also put in some scrapbooking paper with a baby theme. I put in some glue dots and buttons and brads for her to use and also one of the small Xyron sticker machines. When I have asked new mothers what they need for a baby gift, I have gotten requests for some things to use in a baby scrapbook.

Kelley Eubanks said...

I need this set so I can get started on my son's scrapbook. He is 18 months old and such a blessing to my life!!

EVELYN said...

Im married 11 years but no kids so I don't have a favorite baby shower gift yet.i love kids ...im use this stamps for creating cards o Layouts for friends,nephews,etc i live in puerto rico , Thanks!

ChristlMC said...

My favourite baby shower gift is a scrapbook album (not baby-style, just plain) with a gift card to the local photo-finishing department. You know that's a gift that will definitely be used!
Thanks for the chance for candy :-)

Jill said...

My favorite gift to give to new babies are beautiful picture books. I need this set...I don't have a single stamp for making cards for new babies!

xiumaiyuki said...

this set is perfect for me since my work place is full of ladies! every other month or so, someone is on maternity leave...it's kinda funny. we're all work-aunts and Godmothers somehow!

Esther said...

We had a baby shower for one of my co-workers who is having her second child and someone bought a small gift for the older child. I thought that was a great idea so that the older child doesn't feel left out. One of my friends just recently found out that she's pregnant, so I would love to win this stamp set! I don't have any baby themed ones yet but I know it's going to come in handy in the years to come. I love the idea of decorating onesies or creating a scrapbook that the mom can fill as the baby grows. I need this set!

Linda SS said...

I love to give a set of Sandra Boynton books with the baby's first pair of blue jeans. Even if the baby is a girl, it's fun to shop for some name-brand jeans with pink stitching or bows on them. I get such a kick out of those tiny little jeans:) If the baby is a relative, I tend to buy a more expensive item such as a carseat or crib. I'm just crazy about babies:)

Chris D. said...

OOHHH! I wouold love to win this set, as I have lots of babies happening where I work! I LOVE the fonts in the greetings, and do not own any CHF yet! I don't have a fav gift, whatever the mommy is looking for suits me, but I do love giving a name frame when the baby's name is known. Such a personal touch! Thanks for the candy!!!

I love to give a snugopotomous swddle as a gift. The babies are so comfy and warm and it really helps them sleep. A major bonus!

Well, one of the most useful gifts I like to give is diapers! That is the one thing you are sure to use! The reason I would REALLY need this stamp set is that both of our daughters are pregnant-one due August 20th and one due October 12th. One's having a girl and one's having a boy and this set can be used for both! Plus i need to get busy on some album making for them! Not to mention invitations and announcements.

Karen said...

I like to take a blanket bag and fill it full of blankets, t-shirts, diapers, wipes, thermometer, powder, baby soap and shampoo, etc, I than like to put in some confetti and ribbon so it is basically a shower in a bag!

ALLY said...

I think my favourite baby shower gift to give is diapers and diaper wipes. You just can't have too many and with the costs of everyday products like that, I know every new parent loves not having to worry about that kind of thing for the first few months.

LucyL said...

I love making diaper cakes to give to my friends on their baby shower, I usually add a little box of presentation cards for the baby if the name is known that I hand made, those stamps would be great for personalizing further more this kind of gift

Jocelyn said...

Love diaper pail and diapers as baby shower gifts 'coz they're two of the things I myself couldn't do without. :D

jaime aldridge said...

i love to give an infant bathtub filled with baby bath, shampoo, washclothes, hooded towels, and lotion. when i took my first born for her 3 week check up, the dr asked if she was sleeping thru the night yet. i thought she was crazy!! i said 'no she's not, can't you see the bags under my eyes?!' she told me the recipe for a good night's sleep for baby and mom is bath, bottle/breast, bed. i can say that it truly worked. my 3 week old slept 8 hours that night. and same with my second child. i was thanfully never a sleep deprived new mom. so i like to give that to any expecting/new mom, in hope that their new baby will sleep thru for them, too.

Andrea G. said...

Hi Alli,

What another great stamp set. Those animals are sooo cute... What I most often give as a gift for a family when the baby arrives is a meal (and then some baby board or children's books, as well). When I had my two boys, our friends from church organized a schedule and we received meals every two or three days for about three weeks. We do this whenever a new baby arrives in our church. What a life saver! That was the best gift ever.
By the way, I always love the cards you make, but recently they have been especially inspiring:) I even cased one. Just need to find the time to post it.
Have a wonderful summer.

Margaret said...

My favorite baby shower item is: a sippy cup. I'm a dietitian and I like to give moms not only the idea to start working with the sippy cup early, but also the TOOL to get a baby weaned off the bottle early.

Thanks for the chance to win. I NEED THOSE stamps. Just had to make a new baby card yesterday!!!

Pat said...

Favorite baby gift -- I love to make special little quilts for babies, something to tuck into the diaper bag to take along on outings. As for this adorable stamp set -- ooohhhhh, Tyson the Turtle always catches my eye whenever I see him and I WANT him (big time!). Love your blog!

Anne said...

I don't recall my very favorite baby shower gift I have received (our daughters are 9 1/2 & 12 now) but I love to give baby gifts. I love handpainting gifts for baby shower gifts. My favorite was when I handpainted a wooden plaque with "Thank Heaven for Girls" in pink and green polka dots with an organdy ribbon as the hanger and also painted a matching nightlight shade. Of course, I always make a card to go with my gifts. Thanks for the chance to win.

veronica said...

i love to shop for baby clothes. so i usually give about 3 outfits, and a mix of other things, like wipes, cotton balls, wash cloths. i love making cards, now i can give a set of matching thank you cards with the gift.

Irishchristine said...

My favorite gift to give at a baby shower is a bouncy seat. My children loved them and help safe me when they would cry. I would put them in the seat and turn on the vibrating motion and it would calm them down.

Dawn said...

I love getting baby clothes. With each outfit I open I imagine my child in it. I would love this set to capture all those wonderful memories of being pregnant. Not only that,they'd make some cute cards for a baby shower.

Many years ago it was hard enough to accept that I was a grandmother [although I love being one] but now my grandkids are have children! I need this set because I need to make cards for the upcoming births of my great grandchildren!!! OMG, am I really THAT old??? And what a darling set it is, too; I really, really, really want it!

betz61 said...

My favorite baby shower gift has been to take a lenght of clothes line and some clothes pin and pin a bunch of continuos outfits, sleepers. bibs,baby towels to it then put it into a bag and the guest of honor just keeps pulling and pullingit out of the bag very impressive to watch and doesn't cost to much money.

Jen said...

What an adorable set!! I would need this set because I'm at the age where all of my friends just got married and are now in the baby stage so I need plenty of baby gifts and cards on hand. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Carol said...

I like to give diapers. I give them the larger sizes since babies outgrow the newborn sizes very quickly. I also like to decorate a paint can and fill it with small essentials such as pacifiers, clippers, hairbrushes, nipples, rattles, etc...

I could really use this set because with our large family, someone is always having a baby.

jean said...

I always give a gift for the Mom since the baby usually recieves so much ! A day of relaxation at the SPA either before or after the baby is born.

I just love this set and it's been on my wish list for a while now. It would just be so cute to go ahead and cross it off.

Anonymous said...

Love, this set and need it because I dont have any baby sets! My favourite gift to give, because it was my favourite gift to get.......is a basket of baby pharmacy items. You know, the things you wish you had at your finger tips at 2am!

Thanks for the opportunity.

Tanya

Karen said...

What a fun set! My favourite gift to give at a baby shower is some homemade flannelette receiving blankets, a big bundle of washcloths and some luxury Weleda diaper cream. My favourite shower I went to was a re-gifting one. The mom-to-be didn't want anything new so I had a great time shopping in my basement for all the things that I found useful for my own babies and didn't need anymore. It was so nice to be able to share and re-use too.

Tanja said...

I love to give Goodnight Moon and a personalized onesie made by my friend, Rae Ann. She stamps her handmade stamps and then embroiders them.

Philomena said...

My favorite baby shower gift to give is stamped onesies. They are so cute and you can never have too many onesies. The little animals in this set would be perfect for that!

Sara (hiinaz) said...

Oooh I love this set. I really need it because I don't have any cute baby stamps. Just dollar ones from Studio G that don't ink up well. Thanks!!

safaricat said...

Wow that's a cute stamp set. I have 2 babies about to be born in my fmilly so it would really come in handy! Cheryl.C

Melissa said...

I am a Labor and Delivery nurse. I have been making little cards for patients that I give them after I have labored all day with them. I feel it is an honor to be part of their special day. I would love this set to make some cards and maybe a little gift.

travelingmama said...

I **NEED** this set because I'm expecting baby #3 and it seems like all my girlfriends are expecting too! So many cards to make, so little time!

Colleen said...

I love making thank you notes for a new mother. Add some postage, and put it all in a coordinating folder.

Courtney said...

I love this Baby Love set! There's always someone having a baby either family, friend at home or at work and I'm having to make baby cards. Plus this set is so darned cute! thanks for the chance to win!!

Erica B. said...

One of my favorite things to give at a baby shower is something for the mom to pamper herself (along with the cute baby clothes) just to remind her that she is still a person even though a new child is in the family.

Thanks!

Suzanne Moore said...

I just found out last week that 4 ladies I know are expecting babies!!! How fun would it be to give them all cute cards with this set?!?! :) Thanks!!

Pam W said...

I usually give whatever is on the mom's wish list, so my fave gift varies, but one of my favorites is a PeePee Tepee - a little tent like "tepee" to put over little boys when you change their diapers to prevent "showers." Wish I'd had one when my son was little.

I love this cute set too - so many possibilities.

Mom22RedHeads said...

my favorite gift to give is stamped onesies with stamped thank you cards,envelopes and postage stamps. at that point in pregnancy, everyone loves the time it gives them back.

Rhonda M. said...

Great set. It looks so fun! My favorite things to give for a baby shower are handmade thank you cards for the mom to be to use after the shower. I also like to make a scrapbook of the baby's first year. My sister-in-law is due in August with her third girl so I need to get going on her scrapbook. This would sure be a cute addition to use on her gifts!

Rhonda M

Jaime said...

How ironic...My favorite gift to give is one of my diaper cakes that I make, and I literally just posted pics of them on my blog yesterday...anyhow, they make a great gift not only because of all of the diapers but because there are secret items hidden all through out the cake onesies-blankets etc. I also JUST LOVE this set, it is ADORABLE!
Thanks,
Jaime

Tami said...
