If you have a friend or relative who are expecting a new member of their family, a great way to celebrate is to host a baby shower. Baby showers are great opportunities to share parenting ideas and advices. This is also the best time to brain storm and gather ideas for the invitations, decorations, food, activities and gifts for the new mom and the baby especially if they are going to have a Christening celebration.

Ideal baby shower gifts

Before the baby shower, you can visit the expectant parents and ask to see the nursery. While you can always give stuffed animals for gifts, it is more practical to give gifts that the baby and new mom can actually use, such as diapers, nursing bottles, clothes, shoes, baby care packs, sound monitors and burping cloths.

Baby shower game ideas

One of the most crucial and fun part about baby showers are the games. As expectant mothers are easily stressed out, you should choose games that are fun and entertaining not only for the mother to be but also for the other guests. Some of the most popular baby shower game idea that will get all your guests laughing is a game that involves participants to drink out of a baby bottle. It could be milk or juice and the person who drinks the most out of the baby bottle in the set amount of time will win the prize.

These sorts of baby shower game ideas are very well-known and challenging as all your guests get to have a great laugh. An additional preferred baby shower game idea is a along the lines of 'pin the tail on the donkey'.

In this version you can play “pin the baby on the mother” or “pin the pacifier on the baby”. Things that you will need are blindfolds, a piece of paper with an image of a baby and a cut out of a pacifier which is connected to a pin.

Baby shower announcement cards

There is nothing more appropriate in announcing baby showers than sending out announcement cards. There are so many choices available that you will have a hard time figuring out which ones are the best. If you have enough time and want to cut on costs, you can make the announcement cards yourself, with the help of other friends who are organizing the baby shower with you. You can visit your local handicraft store and purchase inexpensive materials such as colorful recycled papers and ribbons.

If you are not as creative, you can also check online for companies selling personalized announcement cards and invitations. Purchasing announcements cards online will allow you to check out different stores, compare their prices and ask for a quotation at the comfort of your home. Some of these stores even offer discounts.

Food

Food is also very important in planning baby showers. Instead of preparing full meals, choose food that are easy to prepare and can be eaten at room temperature. Best choices include cheese and vegetable tarts, homemade pizza or green and fruit salad. Potluck is also a good idea and will help in minimizing the food preparations.
