Welcome to September, my friends! I recently read that September is the month when the most babies are born, and since Carrie Underwood just announced that she is pregnant, I have baby gifts on the brain. So, today I thought I would share some DIY baby gift ideas that I have made in the past that turn out super cute!

I am also sharing these pins because Steve Summers told me that it is too early to post ideas for Fall, and that is all I have been filling my Pinterest feed with these days. I love Fall, but we will get to that in the weeks to come.

Coming up with creative ways to give a "normal" gift is my favorite thing to do for a baby shower. It's such an exciting time, and babies are so darn cute, so I think the gift should match the occasion. Exciting and cute.

I don't have access to photos of all the DIY baby gifts I have made at the moment, but I do have pics of a couple diaper cakes I have made. This first one was for my nephew Kamden, who at the time we called "Baby Z."  I thought it was only fitting to have a zebra themed shower for Baby Boy Zimmerman...

This diaper cake was made for the shower I threw for Q98.5's Rob Brennan and Michelle Kelly. Yes, that is a tutu on the top layer of the cake. Every little girl needs a tutu in my opinion.

Now, the truth is diaper cakes are kinda expensive to make. If you are looking for some cheaper, but still totally adorable DIY baby gift ideas, check these out. I have made them all, and are SO cute and easy. Here are the pins I used for my inspriation...

And...my personal favorite...

I am now working on some more fabulous ideas for the baby shower for my partner in crafting crime, and dear friend, Aimee. Stay tuned, and happy Pinteresting!
