Once you finish sending out baby shower invites, you can move on to decor, games and general shower theme ideas. If you focus on invitations first and collecting RSVPs, you can ensure that you don’t over-buy or under-buy shower supplies down the road. This is an intimate and joyous moment for the mom-to-be so don’t forget to ask for help from another friend or family member when planning out this special day. Visit our detailed guide on baby shower etiquette to answer all of your baby shower questions.
This is a special occasion for the mom-to-be and her guest list is full of loved ones. Send invitations out early in order to account for guests who may be traveling to attend the baby shower. Don’t forget to have the mom-to-be register for gifts at the end of month four or start of month five so you can include baby gift registry information on the invitation.
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.
