Who here loves a baby shower? Who here's looking forward to her own baby shower? If you fall into either camp, read on for the most heartfelt baby shower activity (at least according to me!).

I admit I'm a sentimental softie and that's why I love it when baby showers incorporate personal touches. So I was really excited to see that Heather Morris' friends designed onesies for the Glee star's upcoming bundle of joy during her summer shower.

It lets your pals get creative and you and your little one get a one-of-a-kind gift. When Heather's friends were done designing their mini masterpieces, they were hung from a clothing line by cute clothespins, adding to the party's decor (gossipy sidenote: since there are blue, pink and yellow clothespins, I'm guessing Heather's waiting till she gives birth to find out the sex of her baby!).

For my shower, my friends did something similar, and everyone designed bibs using waterproof markers, so they're safe to wash without erasing the doodles. I received tons of amazing gifts at my baby shower, but the handmade bibs are what I will forever cherish (scroll down to see some of them).

I highly recommend adding a creative baby shower activity to your day, or urging a friend to get one going for you. Other great ideas include making decorations for the nursery together in whatever color or theme you've selected (this could be customized picture frames, wall hangings, or pillows), each guest writing a hand-written note to the baby on what the baby means to them and what they hope s/he will achieve in life, and for super-crafty types knitting a small square of fabric that can be put together to make a customized blankie for the baby. The possibilities are endless!

Here are some of my favorite bib designs from my shower:
