  • I went to one where instead of cards, guests were asked to bring a book for the baby and sign the inside. It was a great idea...you can certainly buy a book for the same price as a card and it benefits the baby.

  • Have a contest. Who ever brings the most diapers gets a prize. This was SO helpful to me. I didn't have to buy diapers for like over a month.

  • The best one we had was a diaper & bottle shower. It was great. Everyone had to bring a pack of diapers or a package of bottles/pacifiers. Of course people usually also brought other gifts too. We also did arrangements that were made up of diapers and bottles, and the cake was made to look like a diaper bag.

  • At most baby showers I have been to, not everyone knows each other. A nice ice-breaker game is one where you pass a spool of ribbon around and ask everyone to cut off a piece however long they want. After everyone has their ribbon, you tell them the game. They wrap the piece of ribbon around their finger while telling who they are, how they know the mom-to-be and if their ribbon is long enough (LOL) a funny thing about the mom-to-be.

  • We had a awsome shower. Everyone had fun. We played lots of games. 1 Diaper change. Mommy & daddy get blinded folded, spun (mom DOESNT GET SPUN). and then they have to put a diaper on a baby doll. The trick is on dad though! And everyone sees this BUT HIM. After the "spin" mommy gets to take off her blindfold (secretly) & watch as 1 person moved daddy stuff around every chance they get (if hes holding the baby & not the diaper, move the diaper. He will go reaching for the diaper. then --move the doll...) GREAT LAUGH..

  • another game everyone laughed at was Give everyone a balloon & tell them to blow it up (DONT TELL THEM FOR WHAT). after everyone is done, tell them then to untie 1 of their shoes (if u dont have shoelaces have yarn available to tie around their foot).. then tell everyone to put their balloon UNDER THEIR SHIRT (laughing begins!)... Then explain the game.. the first to tie their shoe with balloon under their shirt wins (they must keep their feet on the ground)

  • if mom isnt emotional about her shape this can be fun to..
    pass around a yarn & tell everyone to guess how much yarn it would take to go around mommies tummy. after everyone has their yarn, mommy walks around & lets everyone see how close they where. (mostly the men will make the yarn 2x-3x to big!)

    People always like to watch entertainment. so whatever funny thing u can get mommy & daddy to be to do will be good.

  • LOL this ones kinda gross but always makes people laugh. You put candy bars in a diaper and microwave it for a few sec then people have to guess what kind they are. Everyone at my shower thought it was so funny.
