Whether you will be attending a baby shower for a friend, family member, or if YOU are expecting a little bundle of joy, you’re going to love today’s post! I want to tell you all about one of the best gifts I got for my baby shower, and share some nursery-themed printables that can only be described as “adorable to the max.” See why I think the Diaper Genie is the perfect baby shower gift, and download some cute hipster owl prints as well.
It’s hard to believe that my baby shower was over a year ago, but it’s true. I remember opening all the sweet little gifts for my baby boy: oooing over cute outfits, awwwing of soft little blankets. As I unwrapped a large present and read, “Diaper Genie” on the box, I was a little embarrassed to admit that I didn’t know what it was exactly. The gift-giver explained to me that it is a pail you can keep dirty diapers in without stinking up your house. My sister-in-law chimed in with, “We have one of those, and it has saved our lives.”
I found out what she meant really quickly! We currently live in an apartment, and the dumpster is quite a trek to get to. When you’re dealing with a screaming infant who is hungry, and tired, and has a sore bum, the last thing that is on your mind is taking the dirty diaper out right away. It’s so nice to have a Diaper Genie to seal in the smell. My son is 16 months old now, and we are still using the Diaper Genie on a daily basis. That’s a pretty cool quality to have in a baby shower gift if you ask me!

What are your feelings about hipster woodland animals?
What kind of question is that? Of course you LOVE them. If you don’t, then you should probably talk to a therapist about it. Maybe you had a traumatic experience with a fox with a monocle, a porcupine wearing a bowler hat, or a rabbit wearing an adorable argyle vest. I don’t know, I’m only guessing here.
If you’re a fan of these freaking cute hipster owls, then you should
probably definitely check out the fox versions I did a while back (there may or may not be one with a mustache)!
So, will you be gifting these trendy prints or using them to decorate your own nursery?
