I would still bring something, but something small – a toy or something that was $10-15. Nothing more.

I would bring a card, perhaps a pack of diapers if you would feel awkward not giving her something since they usually open gifts at the shower.

meowmeow071914:  You have already been more than generous. If you feel awkward arriving empty handed, take a pack of diapers and let slip in the conversation that you already gave her a gift basket.

Maybe a very small gift and a picture of the other things you already gave (lets hear if for photoshop, if you have to)

If you have already gifted her the super generous basket full, I would show up with a plate of food. Don’t worry about other people’s perceptions, she will know 🙂

I agree.  She knows you already got her gifts. Show up with a bit of food to contribute and leave it at that.

A plate of cookies or a small bunch of flowers would be more than enough

I say bring a card, and if you must bring something, a small package of diapers or a baby toy.

juanita.kelly.9:  +1.  Bringing a card with a picture of the gifts you already gave is great (and maybe a small other gift- diapers or an outfit or a blanket- $20 or so is fine) because sometimes ppl sit in a circle and watch the mom open up each gift and say what each person gave.
