Whether you're a proud parent-to-be or a designated host, planning a baby shower is no small feat. The budget, the venue, the guest list, the theme - where do you begin? To make things more manageable, we created a checklist so you won't forget the essentials. Use it as a guide and organize a baby shower that's perfect for you.
Becoming a parent is an exciting time. Therefore, it’s only right that the expectant mother or father is thrown a baby shower to be attended by their friends and family. However, hosting such an event is no easy feat. There’s the venue, the guest list, the theme, and the gifts – so how do you know where to begin?
No matter whether you’re throwing a small, modest party or a bells-and-whistles baby shower, the main thing is to make it personal. Playing to the parents’ tastes will make it extra special and make your guests feel welcome. It can be hard to please everyone when people get together who may not know each other, which is why baby shower favors play an important part in bonding the group.
Favors have been a staple at weddings and birthday parties for centuries, but they’ve only recently been introduced to baby showers. Now, not only do they add an element of fun to the occasion, but they give guest something to take home and cherish long after the event has passed. Alternatively, they can be presented as gifts for the expectant parents to see the baby through its first year.

Baby shower games
Glass Candy Jars can be used to play games such as “Guess the Baby’s Name” where everyone has to put their guess in a jar anonymously, while Combed Ringspun Cotton Onesies can be customized in advance, then decorated with fabric paint as a fun baby shower activity. There’s no limit to what you can do if you let your imagination run wild.
It’s unlikely you’ll be operating a full bar service at your baby shower, but that doesn’t mean you should shy away from printed drinkware. Our Collapsible Hearts Can Coolers can be used to hold soft drinks and cans in a pretty pink sleeve with a fun message printed on the side. You can also use our custom Acrylic Tumblers with Straws to drink milkshakes, juices or fruity cocktails. When printed with the date of the baby shower or the parents’ names, these drinkware items can double up as fun baby shower favors for guests to take home after the party.
If you run a creche or daycare center, these items can be printed with your logo or slogan and used by the children you care for. You can give them out to parents in a welcome pack or at an open evening to make a good impression. Whichever item you choose, our high-quality printing methods and materials will ensure your business sticks in people’s minds. You can also print items for children’s hospitals, pediatric clinics, children’s clothes shops and more.
