I personally think that co-hosting a shower is enough. I also personally think that giving someone a diaper cake that cost about $100 to make is enough. And doing both of those is DEFINITELY enough! 

Don’t worry too much about random people. I’m sure the mom-to-be will feel very loved by all of your efforts to help put the shower together AND give her an additional gift!

I think that sounds extremely generous.  

Hosting a shower, in itself, is a huge gift.  The diaper cake (which is awesome, btw) is icing.

sounds like more than enough for me! i’m sure she will appreciate both the shower and the diaper cake, and won’t even think twice about an additional gift.

I personally think that is more than enough.  And I saw your diaper cake, it’s freaking awesome. You’re also going to be doing stuff the day of the party since you’re hosting.  It’s mooore than enough in my book.

Personally, I never think the hosts of any kind of shower should never have to buy a gift – showers, while totally fun to plan, are expensive and time consuming!  What you’ve done already is gift enough.

I think you’re more than covered.  $300 has got you covered since your hosting it and have made a homemade and useful gift!  Maybe write her a heart felt card!

When I get pregnant, would you come?  Seriously- more than enough.

i’m not of the camp that thinks hosting means that you don’t need to get a gift, but your diaper cake was AMAZING and is MORE than enough of a gift. no need to get anything else. for sure.

Having hosted several parties for others, that is always my gift.  If someone expects me to give a gift on top of that whoo-ee they are a little greedy!  You did your part.  Ignore the naysayers.

I think the only other thing you need to do is get her a card. I scrapbooked all of mine so I was glad to get one from everyone 🙂
