One thing that I always recommend buying for moms of girls, is flower headbands! They are SO SO SO appreciated! When I was a new mom, I didn't know the ins and outs of dressing up my baby girl. We seem to only be able to produce bald babies, so not using a headband always resulted in my child being called the wrong gender. So now we own a LOT of headbands and bows. What I didn't know at the time was that the pretty headbands I was buying at various stores and boutiques for $5-8 a piece, can actually be found on Amazon for a $1 or less. In fact, to get a variety, I usually buy some packs that are less than $1 each, and some that are little bit more, so that I average a $1 overall and have a good variety. The best thing about buying them in bulk like this is that they make wonderful baby shower gifts. Here are a few ways to dress up your baby shower gift with some baby headbands:
First off, make a bouquet of flowers using the bows! You can do this a variety of ways. You can wrap them around a round floral foam, or you can do as I did and just wrap a bunch of tissue paper up into a ball, wrap your flower headbands around it, and then plop it on top of a vase or cute bucket.

The headbands I used for this can be found here. They ended up being about 75 CENTS EACH!
I got the flowers for the bags here for about a dollar each.
