If you want to encourage a budding Matilda, ask the guests to ‘bring a book not a card’ and write their message in the front cover instead, meaning baby will always think of them when reading the story. Finally, if you’re looking for something a bit fun and with wow factor, a box of ‘open when…’ gifts is a good option. These could include ‘open when baby says their first word’ (champagne), ‘open on 31st October’ (baby’s first Halloween costume) or ‘open when you need a gift for yourself’ (a voucher for her favourite shop) - the world is your oyster.
Round off the activities section with something a little more sentimental - provide everyone with a small piece of card and ask them to write down their wishes for the new baby. The mum and dad to be can keep these thoughts and share them with their little one when they are old enough to understand, showing them how loved they were before they were even born.
A fun idea to get everyone giggling is ‘guess the size of the bump’ where guests guess the circumference of the mum-to-be’s bump by cutting a piece of string the length they think it is. Once everyone has cut their piece of string the mum-to-be puts them around her waist one by one until the winner is found. Other simple but fun games to try are ‘pin the dummy on the baby’ (a baby shower take on the classic ‘pin the tail on the donkey’) and a nursery rhyme quiz (search online for a template).
