piog, what would you want to win as a prize for a game at a baby shower?

My shower is in 2 weeks, we will have 4 games. prizes dont have to all be the same value, i am taking 12 weeks off of work, plus summer break (yes i teach..) so that is 5 months off of work, 2 of them UN PAID!! So they cant be really expensive gifts but at the same time i am not poor and do not want to seem cheap. I was going to get picture frames/candle/candy/idk! what would you want to win??

  • I had a nice long maternity leave too! I was out the last 12 weeks of school, and then a month off track. I was so ready to go back to work though! I'm also a teacher.

    Anyhoo, the gifts you have in mind sound good. How about also some nice notecards?

  • i gave lg potted mums at my last shower (it was in late august), which is cool because my son recognizes them at people's houses and says they were his flowers.... but i cant do the same thing again, and they were just decoration and everyone got one... stationary is a great idea!

  • At my shower I gave away Bath & Body products (like the 3 for $12 soaps and lotions), small boxes of stationary and good smelling candles. Wrap in celaphane and tie it with a bow it looks really pretty.

  • I really do like frames and candles. But you can find clearance jewelry too. Or jewelry boxes as well. Nick-nacks.. Body wash/body spray kits. Welcome things (door mats, door wreaths).
