By tradition, baby showers are usually hosted only for the first baby to usher the parents into parenthood. Proper etiquette also recommends that the baby shower be hosted by other people other than the expectant parents (or it will look like you’re begging for gifts).
I had baby showers during my two pregnancy. I was overseas during my first pregnancy and it was the wife of my hubby’s boss who organized the event. As for my second pregnancy, my hubby’s relatives (sister and cousin and their families) surprised me with a baby shower.
I believe that there is something very special and deeply personal about a baby shower. It will be you, the mom to be, and all of her closest loved ones celebrating the life that will soon enter the world. Because of this, it’s no wonder that some do not use generic party favors at the upcoming celebration. It is far more sentimental and special when you offer personalized party favors instead. Not only that, but your guests will also have something special to remember the day by (besides the many pictures of course).
You can easily personalize your party favors with personalized baby shower favors at AbcFavors.com. ABC favors has customizable hanging gift tags and well as gift stickers to put on your party favors. You can print anything on the baby shower tags including names, dates, and personal messages. Use popcorn labels to label popcorn-style bags in the colors of your baby shower. You can also use small candy labels to label the bottom of Hershey’s kisses with the name of the mom-to-be and the day of the baby shower. These small touches are sure to delight your guests, including the guest of honor.
It doesn’t take much to make a baby shower very personal and sentimental. With a few personal touches here and there you can make this shower an event for everyone to remember.
