In an effort to beat the clock, showers are usually given four to six weeks before the baby’s due date. Parents who receive gifts in advance of the birth have the advantage of knowing what additional items they’ll need to buy or borrow. However, showers can also wait until a few weeks after the birth. In fact, some expectant couples prefer to defer receiving gifts until after the baby’s arrival.
You have offered to host a baby shower, you’ve picked the perfect theme, and now you need to pull together an invitation. PAPYRUS offers a wide range of fully customizable baby shower invitations for a baby girl or boy, or gender-neutral cards. Our cards feature bright splashes of color, playful wording, and a variety of designs, from elegant script to retro-style designs, and everything in between.
This might sound like a rude or up-front question, but it is important because traditionally gifts were at the centre of the shower: they were basically the point of the thing! Friends and family would bring presents to help support the family as they welcomed a new child, providing much of the ‘stuff’ that babies need. Nowadays, many parents are in their thirties, mid-career and more stable than in the past, and so may not need a haul of baby things. Those in this situation might opt for a wishing well (cash gifts), a donation to charity in lieu of gifts, or ask for no gifts at all. Alternatively, many people do want or need gifts but would prefer to have a registry to ensure they get things they will use. Any of these options are fine, and as long as you are polite it is completely acceptable to let your guests know what your preference is.
