Baby Shower Prizes Ideas
If you have ever been a guest a baby shower then you probably know that there are usually games involved.
And if you’ve ever played a baby shower game, then chances are you may have won a prize!
Because what is a game without a prize, right?
If you are hosting a baby shower there are tons of things to think about.
There is the food, the decor, the games, and the guest list just to name a few. Sometimes, the door prizes for the games might be the last thing you remember.
Thankfully, prizes don’t need to be lavish or fancy – most people are just excited to get something fun to take home.
We’ve compiled a list below of the best inexpensive prizes to have at a baby shower. Whether you are just playing some games or hosting a full-on diaper raffle baby shower, you’ll find something for everyone in this post.
Helpful Tips For Choosing Baby Shower Prizes
- Not all prizes need to be the same. You can have several different ones for each winning guest to choose from.
- Pick a budget and stick with it. It might be tempting to go above and beyond when it comes to prizes- but keep it realistic. Decide how many games you will need prizes for and then determine how much you want to spend on each prize. Remember- guests don’t come to the party just get prizes! They come to celebrate the mom-to-be. Anything beyond that is just a bonus!
- Packaging and how you present the prize can make a difference! Especially if it is a “cheaper” prize. Just by adding some tulle or ribbon can make it look more appealing.
- Consider picking prizes that go with your baby shower theme.
- Think about getting prizes for runner-ups
Have fun with picking the prizes! Choose items that you would love to receive!
