Best Baby Shower Gifts?

Would you consider a handmade item cheesy for a baby shower gift? I was looking at and wanted to get something for a friend's baby shower but didn't want her to think I was being lame by not getting something store bought.

Some of the best gifts are homemade/handmade. My son received some wood cutouts from a guy I worked with. He spent the time to cut and paint the Disney and Warner Brothers people. We glued them to a corkboard and the kids had a bulletin board to use.

Blankets are always welcome as are sweaters and booties. In the years to come, the mom can tell the child, who made them the blanket that they use for their bear. I still have a blanket that a cousin made for me when I was born. Now my granddaughter uses it.

My MIL had made for each of my kids a crib blanket that they still have. In fact I think my granddaughter uses my daughter's. MIL passed away in 2002 so granddaughter will never meet her but still has something that MIL had a hand in choosing.
