Best Baby Shower Gifts

Baby showers are fun celebrations of new life as well as important milestone for moms to be. They give pregnant women a chance to celebrate with loved ones, while preparing for baby and turning the page to this new and exciting chapter in life. Showers are a chance for experienced moms to share advice and reflect on the time when parenthood was still so new and exciting. Whether you are shopping for a friend, family member, or coworker, you want to get her a gift that is truly meaningful, beautiful or useful, not something that will add to the clutter or stress in her life. Baby showers are a time to make memories that will last a lifetime, with games, stories, food and of course gifts. They are a chance to spoil new moms with all of the essentials she will need for her new baby, everything from diapers and clothes to more expensive necessities like cribs and baby monitors. I have wonderful memories of my baby shower, where I was surrounded by people I love and who I knew would love my baby as much as I do. It was a chance to talk through my worries as well as my excitement, and to bond with the women who I was joining in the worldwide circle of mothers!

You can purchase something directly off of her gift registry if she has one of course, or you can get her a unique gift that shows how well you know her and understand her style. This list includes gifts for every kind of mom and every sized budget – No matter what her tastes, you are sure to find something that fits both her style and your wallet. You can also choose multiple smaller gifts and build your own DIY gift set.

Whether this is the first shower you’ve been to or the 15th, you’ll never go wrong with one of these great baby shower gift ideas. From “Welcome Home Baby” sets to soothing toys that will help baby get some rest (and give parents a break!), there are lots of things to pick from to help celebrate a new arrival.

Unique Baby Shower Decoration Ideas

Select A Theme

The first thing to do when brainstorming your baby shower decoration ideas is to choose a theme. Pick a color depending on whether your shower is for a baby boy or baby girl, or why not try going nautical, jungle, natural, or choose a character from a favorite storybook or cartoon.


Using Fiskers and Some Rainy Fun

Turn the desserts table into the best feature of the baby shower décor. Embellish cupcakes with paper decorations that match the baby shower theme and tie ribbons around lollipop sticks to create a cute and eye-catching look.


Summer Fun Theme

Baby shower theme ideas can be as simple as creating a summer fun theme. This can be created easily by using bright orange and yellow colored fabrics that can decorate the tables and the same hues can also be used in the balloons and cake icing. Use wooden cutlery and service spoons to bring a seaside feel to the party. Personalize the look with cut-out letters planted into flower pots to spell baby’s intended name, or just use the word “baby” to keep it generic.

Cute As A Button Theme

A unique and memorable homemade baby shower decoration idea is to create a feature display using the ultrasound photos of little one, which can be pegged to a wire frame with other embellishments to match the overall baby shower theme. When the party is over these can be put into a scrapbook keepsake for the mom-to-be to treasure.

Everything Blue

Decorate a plain wall by making a ribbon banner using pieces of fabric in a range of color shades for an eye-catching baby shower decoration. Cut the fabric of different hues into strips and tie them to a string for a colorful backdrop that is pretty and also very easy to do.


Spring Themed Baby Shower

Use a simple blackboard to make a personalized welcome note or sign that is cute and impactful in its simplicity.This is a great prop that can then get re-used later once baby arrives.


Simple Pink And White Trims

Make the most of the fireplace mantle by decorating it with ribbons and paper flowers. These simple tulle trimmings can also be used as table decorations or centerpieces. Use matching vases to hold the flowers which can be of complimentary colors to make an attractive scene for the mom-to-be.


Pat The Bunny Baby Shower

Baby shower decoration ideas for girls often involve flowers. Create a gorgeous paper pompom flower and ball lantern chandelier that will be beautiful and eye-catching. Simply string together decorations in a range of colors and sizes to make a visual showpiece over the food table. Party favours can also be made using a petite vase with a crepe paper flower to remember the party by.


Vintage Bunny Themed Baby Shower

An outdoor picnic theme can be perfect when the weather is good, and simple table-settings of fresh wild flowers in vases and tablecloths and napkins in neutral tones can make a simple yet gorgeously decorated baby shower setting.

Tutu Thrilled Baby Shower

For a ballerina tutu theme, use a draped table cloth, balloons and baby’s breath flowers with a pretty tulle ribbon. Make a big impact to the baby shower entrance table by creating a 3-dimensional tulle letter to represent baby’s name if know for an extra personal touch that can then become a nursery gift.The letter can be made using papermache and a spool of tulle wrapped around the letter.

Baby Shower Games Ideas – Unique and Fun


unique and fun baby shower games

Everyone loves a bouncing baby, but not everyone loves run-of-the-mill baby shower games. We certainly don’t! So if you’re like us and are looking for games that are decidedly fresh and fun, we’ve put together some seriously unstuffy options for you to choose from.


Don’t Say Baby

Mum’s the word when it comes to saying ‘baby’! Get this great icebreaker started the moment your guests walk through the door. As you greet each guest, give each a diaper pin to wear on his or her shirt. Once all of your guests have arrived, tell everyone that they can’t say ‘baby’ for the duration of the shower (or until it’s time to open presents). If anyone hears someone else saying the forbidden word, he or she can steal the rule breaker’s pin. At the end of the game, the person with the most pins wins a gift.


Race to Water Break

Everyone puts one of these baby-filled ice cubes in their drink. Whoever’s melts first, wins!


Guess the Baby Game

Pink cheeks and rosy memories abound when you play this game at your baby shower. You’ll need to set the wheels in motion as you send out invitations to the shower. With each invite, include a note instructing guests to bring along a picture of themselves as babies. As each guest arrives, assign a number to each picture and post it up on the wall. Have each guest guess which picture corresponds to each guest. After everyone is finished cooing over the photos, give a prize to the person with the most matches that matched up!


Gender Reveal Voting

Instant conversation starter: have your guests vote when they walk in.


Baby Items in the Bag

Keep guests guessing with this practical game. Put at least ten common, useful baby items inside a diaper bag; a bib, teething ring, rattle, bottle and diaper are just a few goodies that are also fairly inexpensive. Give each guest a pen and paper before passing the diaper bag around. Without looking, each person should stick a hand inside the bag and identify as many items as possible. Give each two minutes to feel around and make their guesses before moving the bag to the next person. Once everyone has had a turn, find out who had the most correct answers. The winner gets a prize and the parents-to-be get the diaper bag filled with baby essentials!


Mommy and Daddy’s Secrets

If you’re looking for a fun, yet touching, baby shower game for your coed baby shower, you’re in luck (though you can always adjust the game to fit a shower just for the girls). Ask the mom and dad for answers to twenty questions-make sure to do this with the significant other nowhere in sight! Some great questions include, “Where were you when you heard the news?” “Do you want a girl or boy?” and “If you could have your way, what would you want your child to be when he or she grows up?” After you quiz each and record their answers, bring both into the room and put the future parents on the hot spot one at a time. Ask each to guess the answer their partner gave to each question-before polling the audience to see who thinks the answer is correct. Everyone’s a winner with this lively game!


Name the Baby Animal

Write down a list of animals and see who can guess the terms used for their young. Did you know a baby kangaroo is a joey?


Baby Sketch Artists

Who knew paper plates could be this much fun? Pass out sturdy paper plates and markers to all of your guests. Let them know they’ll be drawing a picture of the baby, and the best sketch will win. The catch is that everyone has to draw with the paper plate on her or his head! It’s a hilarious sight-and the finished drawings are guaranteed to have everyone in stitches.


Name That Poo

Nasty, but a classic. Melt different types of chocolate bars (caramel, nuts, etc) in baby diapers and have guests guess which is which- or have them race to devour their diaper first.


Guess the Baby Food

If you’ve ever thought that baby food in jars looks less like the ‘peas’ or ‘carrots’ they purport to be and more like miscellaneous mush, this is the game for you. Gather seven to ten unique flavors of baby food jars, number each lid and tear off the labels. Ask each guest to grab a spoon and start sampling! The guest with the keenest taste buds wins a prize for getting the most correct.


Guess the Mother’s Measurements

Pregnancy is perhaps the only time in life that it’s socially acceptable to go up to a woman, rub her belly and comment on the expanding size of her waistline. So why not have fun with it? Pass around a ball of yarn and a pair of scissors. Tell each guest to cut off a length of string that they think corresponds to the size of the honoree’s belly (make sure no one is cheating by measuring their own or a friend’s waist!). When everyone has a piece of string, invite each person up to try his or her luck measuring the mom-to-be’s belly. Whoever has a string that comes closest to being a perfect measurement, wins.


Drink Up, Baby!

Whether you’re planning a daring couple’s shower or a tame for-all-ages party, this game is always a hilarious hit. Fill baby bottles with the beverage of your choice-beer for the guys at a grown-ups’ party and apple juice for the kids at a family baby shower. Then, give everyone a bottle and on the count of three they must suck the bottles dry as quickly as possible. The first person to down the contents of his or her bottle wins.


Pin the Sperm on the Egg

Set up this version of the childhood classic, or make your own board.


Diaper Derby

On your mark, get set, go! Divide your guests into teams and hand each team a roll of toilet paper. Give the teams five minutes to wrap a team member up in a mock diaper. The team with the most creatively diapered ‘baby’ wins. There’s something so outrageously funny about grown adults in hastily assembled toilet paper diapers-your guests won’t be able to stop laughing!


Feed the Daddy

How to play: If you’re having a mixed shower, blindfold the ladies and have them feed their partners baby food. Seems simple enough? Think again—when there’s music, laughing and you can’t exactly get your aim right, we bet hubs is going to end up with mushy peas on his nose.

Why they’ll play it: It’s interactive and fun—plus, it makes the men part of the fun, too!


Late-Night Diaper Notes

How to play: Buy a mega box of diapers. Have guests write funny quotes, words of encouragement, inside jokes—anything!—on the back of the diapers. (Permanent marker is just fine and won’t bleed through to Baby’s tushy, don’t worry!)

Why they’ll play it: When mom and dad are up at all hours of the night once their newborn arrives, it’ll make their 3 a.m. call a little more bearable when they see a note from a friend or family member. Plus, how hard is it to write on a nappy?


Baby Shower Price is Right

How to play: Lay out some of the gifts off of her registry and some common everyday baby items, like diapers, cream, etc. Have guest come up and try to guess the price. The person who gets the closest—without going over!—wins!

Why they’ll play it: Bob Barker fan or not, a little challenge is enough to get anyone to compete!
