Are you planning a Baby Shower or maybe you have recently been invited to one? Many people have the challenge of organising or attending a Baby Shower and have many questions such as what present do I take? do we have to play games, if so which ones? Who do we invite? When is the best time to arrange the Baby Shower before the due date?
There are so many questions to consider and as Baby Showers are becoming more and more popular Gifts4Baby have recently expanded our Baby Shower product range due to their popularity and we have written this blog to help you with any questions that you may have concerning a Baby Shower.
Firstly you need to decide on a date for the Baby Shower. As most expectant Mum’s find the end of the pregnancy a little uncomfortable most people decide between 7.5 and 8.5 months of the pregnancy is a good time, as don’t forget we also want the Mummy-to-be to be full of energy and enjoy her Baby Shower to the full.
You also need to decide on a location, the person organising the Baby Shower often offers to hold at their property or your could ask close family members if they can help. Don’t forget to also look into local halls that you may be able to hire with an hourly charge, you will be surprised it may not cost as much as you thought.
Who do we invite is another question that is often asked. If you are planning the Baby Shower on behalf of someone else you should make a judgement on their closest friends and you could always ask a family member or her partner advice on which family members to invite. Don’t forget that if the Baby Shower is being held in a property please take into account the size and space available as you do not want it to be too over crowded for every one.
You may want a Baby Shower theme ie. if the Mummy-to-be knows the sex of the baby you could choose a all Blue or all Pink theme or you could go for neutral colours. You might want to choose a Disney theme or something that means something special to the Mummy-to-be.
Invitations is something that you also need to think about along with a Baby Shower Greeting Card to accompany your gift. Gifts4Baby have both Personalised Baby Shower Invitations and Personalised Baby Shower Greeting Cards available which makes a lovely finishing touch and a special personalised keepsake.
Some people like games and feel very comfortable with them, others not so much. It is best to go with the personality of the Mummy-to-be and make a decision based on if you think she will enjoy games or feel uncomfortable with them. Games you could use are guess the baby name, baby weight and time of birth of the baby and pin the tail on the baby.
It is also nice to make the Mummy-to-be feel very special and make her feel at complete ease. If you do decide to purchase a gift for her then Gifts4Baby have many personalised Baby Shower gifts for your inspiration.
