I have found that most people buy off the baby registry.  They tend to buy clothes because they are so cute to pass up and a lot more fun to give then a nose cleaner or bottle brush.  I think diaper showers are a great idea because they are such a need and expensive for the new parents.  And some people give diapers and a little something extra like a lotions etc.

I went to a shower once where the hostess had bought a bunch of onesies of various sizes and a bunch of fabric pens which the guests then used to decorate the onesies. Super fun and creative.

@BothCoasts:  We did that at my SIL’s baby shower. It was a huge hit. We had onesies in all different sizes (both short and long sleeved) and provided puffy paint for the guests to decorate with. They ended up with like 20 really cute onesies.

i went to a shower once where the hostess passed around the baby;s first piggy bank and everyone just dropped in some coins. then they made it into a game where everyone had to guess how much was in there.  some might see it as “money grabby”, but i thought it was cute. And i only put like 50 cents in there.  i saw some other guest dropping one and two dollar coins though.

We haven’t done this one yet. But my friend wants a Texas Hold’em for her shower.  She said that her and her hubby went to one and everyone had to bring a pack of diapers to get in the game.  They then played hands of poker.  The hosts gave the winners gift cards.  She said that the couple got lots of diapers and the guys enjoyed it!  We’ll see how it turns out.
