Looking for that perfect baby shower gift for a friend or family member? If the registry has already been bought out or you just want to do something more personal, check out these seven super creative (and useful!) gift ideas. They’ll be the talk of the party!

DIY Hand-lettered Rolling Book Crate

Give the gift of reading with this bookish idea. You'll transform a basic wooden crate into adorable book storage. Find out how to do it at Lemon Thistle. If you can, find out what color the baby's nursery will be so you can coordinate. And instead of simply writing "books" you could add the baby's name if it has been revealed. Before you give it to the mom-to-be, fill it will a selection of board books to help build Baby's library.
