i loved and needed all the things i got at my baby shower, most were inexpensive.
u can never get enough wipes and nappies, i got things like baby bath soap and nice towels, bunny rugs, clothes, some baby toys, i got baby powder that i have never used, i also got things like cot sheets and 1 friend also gave me a little book to keep and everytme a special occasion in dd life and had a gathering of somesort ie birthdays people could rite special notes in it 4 her to read when she is older and we started writting in it at the baby shower, i thought this was a great thought. another thing you could do is when you are out at the shops in suppermarket or department stores look 4 things that you think you and bub would like and need and include them on the list.
hope this helps
