Devotional Diapers

Here is a simple and quick idea for a baby shower gift that new moms love. Devotional Diapers….since you know that new mamas barely have time to brush their teeth, let alone finding time to get in the Word!

This is all you need:

  • newborn diapers
  • mailing labels
  • ribbon or raffia
  • a card that says “Devotional Diapers- for the mom with very little time!
  • several verses about love, patience, and even a few quotes on mothering (1 Corinthians 13, Psalm 17:7, Psalm 18:1, John 15:12-13, Galatians 2:20, Ephesians 3:17-19 are just a few to get you started)
Simply write out your verses out quotes and attach them to each diaper, wrap up, and give!

Combine this with a great book on mothering, like The Mission of Motherhood, and you have a simple, encouraging gift for a new mama!

What are your ideas for baby shower gifts?

    What a lovely idea. I’m hosting a shower this weekend and I have extra diapers from a diaper cake I created, so now I’ll print out some verses and attach with a ribbon! Brilliant! Thanks!

    Love this!! My fave gift is always a book–usually the Jesus Storybook Bible! :)

    Cute, cute! Looove it! This past week I sent our college kids a “blessing” envelope with bible verses with their names inserted into them.
    For instance, my daughter’s said “You can do all things, Rebekah, through Christ who strengthens you.” or “I will never leave you, or forsake you, Rebekah.”
    Add a Starbucks gift card for an instant pick me up! ;)

    • Joy

      Aw, that is really sweet. And, you do not look old enough to have college kids. :)

    Love this idea! My go to inexpensive baby shower gift is printing out the baby’s name and meaning and framing it :) This only works of course if they have a name! :)

    • Joy

      Oh that is cute! I love that idea. Thanks for sharing it!

  • Jami Leigh

    What a cute idea! I have never seen this before. So cute AND practical! Thanks for sharing! :)

    I love this idea! I’m going to make one for my sister her baby shower is in 2 weeks. Might I suggest giving them some larger sized Devotion diapers too? It will be a little bit of a recharge when the baby’s a bit older. (If anyone wants they can print off some devotions from my free e-book, they’re designed to be quick devotions for new mamas)

  • Kelli

    What a wonderful idea!! Thank you ;)

  • Lis

    What an awesome idea! I just forwarded it to my pastor’s wife who is in charge of the baby showers at our church.

  • Jamie Joseph

    This is so thoughtful and adorable! I like giving diapers because I know they are always needed but I never thought of this! I will have to do this from now on!

  • Adrienne

    I love this gift idea. I have a shower coming up too! :)

    I really like your ideas for the Scripture verses and how you put them together with the diapers.
    Our church is in the latter stages of planning a DIAPER DEPOT – 3rd Saturday of each month — giving diapers away to single moms or families that need them as a mission outreach of our church.
    Anything in addition that we can do to bring Christian books, verses, clothes, etc. in their hands we will do. It will be very interesting to see what GOD will do when we listen and partner with HIM.
