Tips for a successful baby shower

Baby showers are a great way to celebrate the imminent arrival of a little one. They don't have to be difficult to arrange, or expensive for those bringing gifts. Follow this guide to help an expectant mum enjoy a stress-free few hours with her nearest and dearest.

No pressure

Pregnancy can be tiring, so the last thing an expectant mum wants is the stress of a hectic event. Encourage your guest of honour to relax, enjoy the moment and have fun.

Little must-haves

Don't pressurise guests into buying expensive presents as not everyone can afford to. Instead, hint at little necessities such as muslin cloths, bibs or other practical gifts.

Something for mum

Once baby's born, they're likely to be showered with gifts. So why not buy something special for mum-to-be instead?

The whole family

Partners and other children can often get forgotten in the busy run-up to birth. Why not treat them to something nice?

Keep things casual

Sometimes tea, cakes and a chat with best friends and family members is all the party expectant mums need, so think about gifts that would make for a memorable teatime.

Great gift ideas

Help mum-to-be celebrate the countdown to her new arrival with a thoughtful present.
