Faux food gifts are a fun idea that's been floating around out there for a while.  You've probably seen diaper cakes or sock cupcakes, but here's a new twist!  Jolene from Creative Dollar used an assortment of baby essentials to create "sushi", which she presented all wrapped up on a plate.  Hers was a baby girl gift and included hair bows; for boys, you could use more socks or other small soft goods instead.  Sushi-loving moms-to-be will love this creative presentation!  [how to make a sushi baby shower gift]

    OMG! This would have been a wonderful gift to a friend of mine who had her baby a few months ago. Her husband has a sushi business here in town.
    Too fun!

    Thank you SO much for this idea! Just recreated it for a friend’s shower. Target still carries the same little bath fish along with wash cloths. I decided to add a gift certificate to a local sushi restaurant for the soon-to-be parents to have a night out after the baby arrives! It was definitely a hit :)

    I just made mine for $12, it included 3 onsies, two long sleeve T’s, one long sleeve fleece top, one fleece skirt, plush fishie, two wash cloths, two bibs, and an awesome ducky box to put it all in!
