Get ready for some fun with our Baby Shower favors and prize list ideas.
There are lots of ideas here for a boy or girl baby shower, a dad shower, gender reveal parties, an adoption party, a diaper raffle, and a Christening or Baptism.
What is a Baby Shower?
The good news of a new baby isn’t just exciting for parents. It’s likely that the future grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and other family members will also be eager to welcome the new addition to the family.
One of the most traditional ways of expressing your joy at being pregnant is through a baby shower. A baby shower is one of the most traditional ways in which your loved ones come together to express their joy at your pregnancy.
The occasion is an opportunity for family and friends to spend time with an expectant couple and to “shower” them with love, gifts, and warm wishes before the birth. Experiencing the upcoming arrival of the new bundle of joy and celebrating the soon-to-be mom is a joy.
A Baby Shower: When Should You Have One?
A baby shower doesn’t have to happen at a specific time. It is common for baby showers to be held approximately four to six weeks before the baby is due. In this way, guests can make sure to choose gifts and decorations based on the baby’s gender.
How To Plan A Baby Shower
Baby showers aren’t traditionally planned by expectant mothers themselves. Rather, friends and family members typically organize the party together. It is designed to shower a mom and her newborn baby with gifts.
If you don’t know anyone who can plan your baby shower, ask a friend or a family member to do so. It is fine to turn to someone who knows you well for assistance.
You may also want to create a baby gift registry. When guests are uncertain of what to give you, a registry can be very helpful. In addition, it can prevent duplicate gifts delivered from different guests.
Baby Shower Games
You’ll find plenty of games to keep guests entertained, from guessing the size of mom’s belly to “Guess the Baby’s Gender.” Check out Pinterest for fun baby shower game ideas.
What Are Good Prizes for Baby Shower Games?
Keeping the guests’ energy up is also a special treat with fun-filled baby shower games. Your first step should be to set a budget. If you need additional ideas, you can find super cheap ideas here if you have a limited budget.
I love this Snarky Adult Coloring Book about #MOMLIFE that you can find here. It’s a big hit with guests too, and very entertaining!
In case children are attending the shower, prizes should be selected so that they can also possibly win something they like.

By bringing any size diaper, you will be entered for a chance to win a prize at the diaper raffle. The prize can be anything from small to large, whatever you decide. Most often, it’ll be the centerpieces in the middle of the table like a door prize, a gift basket, or more tickets for the prize table that are raffled off.
#7 – Virtual Baby Shower Games
Recently, a team member took part in a Zoom meeting that included virtual baby shower games for twins. What a great idea! In my days as a military spouse, I would have enjoyed playing baby shower games virtually.
At my sister’s shower, I would have still felt like I wasn’t missing out on any of the “Price is right games.” It would have been fun to play the games online and still feel apart.
However, you should have creative prizes for your virtual baby shower game ideas. Below are some fun ideas to give over the computer.
