Ideas for prizes
The most important thing to remember when picking door prizes and give-aways at any baby shower is to make them fun, not necessarily extravagant. Little gift certificates from your favorite shop or bakery make great gifts. Candles, lotions, books, and other fun items can also make a splash. Personalized ornaments are great for the holidays, and fun to make. Give the ornaments away as game prizes, or shower favors - either way, your guests will love them!
Thank You Notes
Most mothers-to-be are way too busy having fun at a baby shower to try to remember every item that is given to them and by whom. When the mother-to-be is opening the shower presents, have someone at the party jot reminders on a sheet of paper indicating who gave what. Another idea is to have everyone at the party write their address on a thank you envelope. You can even make a game out of it (each guest can draw a envelope out a hat - mark one envelope as a door price winner). These baby shower ideas make it a lot easier for the mother-to-be when she's writing those important thank-you notes.
The appropriate time for a baby shower
There really is no set time for a baby shower. Most baby showers occur in the last trimester of the mother-to-be's pregnancy, however this isn't a golden rule. Some people even have baby showers after the baby is born. My Bambino has perfect baby gifts for showers no matter the season! Find personalized ornaments to give for the holidays and decorative party favors for your guests.
Who puts on the baby shower?
Normally, a family member on either the father's side or the mother's side throws a baby shower for the expectant mother. However, in today's world, it's really acceptable for any person close to the mother- to-be to throw the baby shower. Leave the decorating and fun details to us - at My Bambino, we have a variety of games and other baby shower ideas to make your party a success!
