How to Be a Star at Baby Shower Parties?
Baby showers are not your usual kind of a party. You may have been the crowned star of parties back in your days due to your awesome dancing moves, singing skills or your awesome gifting ideas, but those things aren’t gonna cut it in baby showers. And if you haven’t been to one, you wouldn’t know what exactly to gift your friend/ neighbor/ colleague at their baby shower party. Well, if you still want to maintain your title, you have to evolve and do something different. If you have a few ideas of your own, that’s great. But if not, take a look below.
Help plan the party
The transition from simple adults to new parents is a tiring task. Someone who has a baby on the way is likely tired and would appreciate any help they can get. So, one of the first things you can do is help them plan the party. You can either share a part of the load or shoulder the entire responsibility of planning the baby shower yourself.
If you are donning the cap of a baby shower planner, here’s a few things you should put in your list of ‘things to do’.
- Select a date and time
- Determine the guest list and budget
- Choose a venue
- Send the invitations
- Plan the menu and decor
- Plan games and activities to keep the guests engaged and entertained
Last but not least, pick a perfect baby shower favour. Baby shower favours or the parting gifts are the perfect opportunities for you to step up and shine. All you have to do is pick the right gift which sends them a beautiful message that you care and appreciate their presence in the party. Now, it can be an extravagant item but, if you believe the experts, something as simple as a voucher/ gift card will be more thoughtful.
Most of your guests will be new parents, couples who are planning a family, some who are already expecting their first child in the months to come by, and some who are next in line to walk the aisle. Give them something that they can use later and buy useful products when they need it.
Make sure to get your friends the right gifts
If your friend is not a first-time parent, believe us, they already know the gifts they are to receive in the baby shower. Even if this is their first time, some of these gifts he/she will receive on the baby shower will be useful, the others will end up in a pile of thoughtless gifts inside the cupboard or the storeroom, remaining unused for years and years. This needs not to happen again if you intervene.
- You can either make a list of things your friend would need as a parent and then ask each of your guests to align their gifting ideas accordingly.
- Or you can work with the guests and gift your friend a special Mi Arcus #Showeringlove voucher which would let him/her shop for baby care products he/she likes when the time comes.
Either way, your friend will get what she needs and you’ll become the MVP of the party.
