Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Baby Speculation

“Hello World!” Baby Shower Gift Basket
Katie is only few days away from giving birth to her first child and a lot of rumors are circulating. There are so many theories about where she will be delivering & what gender is the baby, & its name! She has been seen shopping for baby clothes and accessories, and they were all blue, so It might be an indication that the baby is a boy. As far as the birth is concerned some articles speculate that she'll have a silent birth, with no pain killers, alone, on a boat or even with Victoria Beckham (one of the Spice Girls). Some articles say that she also booked a delivery room in her hometown, Toledo, OH.

But she is still In LA where some journalists spotted her, leaving her Baby shower where she received some very beautiful gifts. Remember that Baby shower gifts can be simple or elegant, traditional or creative. Any new parents will appreciate baby gifts that are unique, useful and thoughtful.

1. Ask the new parents directly or ask their close friends and family about what they still need for their baby's arrival.

2. Use your experience as a parent (or ask someone you know who has kids): What could you not live without during the first year? Some of the essentials that new parents appreciate receiving are baby blankets and baby clothing.

3. Investigate the needs of the new parents. Do they need a baby stroller, a baby Moses basket or a stylish diaper bag?

4. Parents especially love personalized baby gifts. Consider monogrammed onesies, personalized baby blankets or a personalized wall art with the baby's name.

5. Baby keepsakes are a traditional favorite. They are special gifts that will be cherished a lifetime. Consider getting a silver baby mug or a silver picture frame. You can't go wrong with classic gifts like these.

7. Choose baby clothes in size 3 months or larger. A baby usually has a first outfit and will quickly outgrow newborn sizes.

8. To truly impress and stand out from the rest of the baby shower gifts, a unique baby gift basket is the trick. There are so many creative arrangements available that cater to girl, boy or twins. Personalized baby gift baskets offer an unforgettable touch.

9. Evaluate your spending limits. If you don't want to spend more than $50, choose baby clothing, burp cloth, or a soft baby blanket.

10. Stay away from equipment that's on sale, unless you know the parents want a particular item. There might be a reason it is on sale.

11. A popular gift item is a Moses Basket. Practical and portable, Moses baskets are a wonderful "first bed" for a baby.

12. If you can't think of what to get, you can never go wrong with a gift certificate. The parents will have fun shopping with your gift.

When the gender of the baby is unknown, opt for gender-neutral colors such as yellow, white and green.

Since a baby shower is meant to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the baby, giving a gift for the baby instead of for the mom is more appropriate.

Baby Shower Themes

Ducky & Me Baby Cake
If you're planning an upcoming baby shower, one of the very first things you're going to want to do is decide upon a theme. The theme you choose will dictate the type of cake you purchase, the decorations, the games, the party favors and so on. Don't forget to take into account if the mother-to-be is having a boy or a girl and her likes and dislikes before making your final decision.

A fun baby shower theme to use is "Hollywood Mommies." You can be very creative with this theme and even request that your guests dress a little "Hollywood" on your invitations. For example, you could have your guests wear fancy hats, dark sunglasses and dresses to help enhance the theme. The decorations could include pictures of famous people with their children, such as Julia Roberts, Courtney Cox, Angelina Jolie , Nicole Kidman and Britney Spears. Most party stores will have plates, cups, streamers and more that follow along perfectly with a Hollywood theme and you can have a cake made that depicts a Hollywood mom or the Hollywood hills to complete the look.

Another cute idea for a baby boy or girl shower is the "Rubber Ducky" theme. For an adorable centerpiece, a rubber ducky diaper cake. Place buffet style appetizers and sweets around it on orange or yellow colored plates. Some food ideas include cheese and crackers, crab cakes, croissant sandwiches, cupcakes with rubber ducky's on them, brownies and cookies. For the gift table, fill a baby bath with ducky themed gifts for the mom-to-be. From burp cloths to tiny t-shirts, finding ducky themed clothes and baby items will be easy and available at just about any baby store. Make your guests "ooh and ahh" over your sweet party favors by giving out ducky shaped soap and bubble bath. For a creative touch your guests will love, make your punch blue and float a ducky in the bowl. Help the new mom to never forget this day by surprising her with a rubber ducky gift basket filled with all the essentials that she and her baby will need.

If the mommy-to-be is having a girl, the "Tea Party" theme is not only fun, but it will bring your guests back to their childhood. Remember when you were little and used to invite your friends over for a make believe tea party? Now you can have a real one that will wow your guests from the moment they step in the door. Decorate with different shades of pink for the punch, cups, napkins, plates, streamers and flowers. Serve finger sandwiches, plenty of confections, many varieties of tea and of course, a cake with a teapot or a baby girl design on it. For party favors, give out tiny teapots with flowers in them. For an unforgettable decoration that the new mommy can also use with her child later is a Tea Party TeePee Playhouse. You can store all your gifts inside and what a fun reminder of how we all wanted our own little play space as little kids ourselves.

There are many different themes you can use for a baby shower, from the "Bear Necessities" where you have the guests bring the mommy-to-be all the necessary items she will need when her baby is born to a "Little League" sports theme for a baby boy with basketballs and soccer balls as decorations. But, it's using your creativity for those little touches that will go along way into making a memorable baby shower for the mother-to-be and all of her guests. For gifts, try the Baby Athlete Gift Basket or the "Hello World!" Sports Baby Gift Basket for the future baby athlete. Both mom and dad will sure adore the unique gift. Good luck!

What is it with celebrities and what they name their babies?

Art for Baby Nursery Room
Decades ago we had Frank Zappa, who named two of his kids Moon Unit and Dweezil - but we sort of expect that from a rock star, don't we? To top it off, he named his other two kids Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva - so at least in that family they all have rather unique names.

I admit that I thought it was pretty cool when Demi and Bruce named one of their daughters Scout, in honor of the young heroine from "To Kill A Mockingbird" - but then they went and named the other two Rumor and Tallulah Belle. Not sure why they did that - thankfully they seem like nice, normal kids.

No need to discuss what Michael Jackson named his children - that's the least of his, or their worries, frankly.

I had a cat named Coco when I was a child, and now David and Courtney Cox Arquette have a daughter named Coco. And how about Apple for a name? Seriously, why would an Academy Award winning actress name her child Apple? Will Gwenyth name the one she's expecting this spring Banana? Or maybe go with something from the vegetable family?

Don't get me wrong - I think trying to find a unique name for your child is wonderful. There are more than enough Bob's in the world right now (my husband being one of them). But aren't there better ways of choosing a name for your baby than drawing a name out of a hat or trying to recall what you ate just before conception? And isn't life already going to be hard enough for these celebrity kids without being saddled with bizarre names?

Not all celebrities have given their offspring strange names. Thankfully, Britney Spears named her son Sean, and Kate Winslet chose the simple, but strong, Joe for her son. And there are lots of celebrity sons named Jack and Henry out there, along with a few Grace and Samantha's, so not all is lost.

Weird celebrity Names:

Here are some of the weird celebrity baby names you might see on Hollywood.

Moon Unit (Frank and Gail Zappa)
Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin)
Satchel (Mia Farrow and Woody Allen)

Maddox (adopted by Angelina Jolie)

Dexter (Diane Keaton)
Maddox (Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton)
Racer, Rebel, Rocket (Robert Rodriguez)
Willow (Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith)
Zola (Eddie Murphy)

What celebrities like more than naming their babies with unique names? Decorating their baby nursery with personalized children artwork. For example, no baby nursery would be complete without pieces of personalized baby art such as the "My Name is" Boy Canvas Art (also available in "My Name is" Girl). These custom artwork are fun, whimsical and full of imagination. Delicately hand-stretched over wood bars, the canvas can be easily wiped clean so children can feel free to touch and explore. The child's name is hand-painted onto the artwork, giving the art a distinctive, original look. U.S.'s most noted celebrities, such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Courtney Cox have personalized children's art hanging in their baby's nurseries and children's playrooms.

To add more special touches to their little prince and princess's room, celebrities are decorating their child's room with personalized growth charts, fun colorful nursery rugs, and unique lamps and lighting to accent the room. Many of the products that celebrities buy for their babies are also available to the rest of us if you know where to find them.
