BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2009
The end of the year brings up many holiday celebrations with friends and family besides the baby shower itself. If your baby shower falls within this holiday month, a great idea is to give gift cards to the parent-to-be's favorite stores (i.e., baby gap, babies-r-us, Old Navy, Target, Wal-Mart). Another great gift is the most update DVD for new parents at Newborn Care 101.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - NOVEMBER 2009
November is a great time to have a baby shower. Give thanks by giving to a needed or favorite charity of the mommy-to-be. Pass around a jar and send to a children's charity for those in need! Every bit counts and you will feel good that you all shared in making a difference, no matter how small the donation! Giving time to a charity also counts significantly! For a centerpiece, use a big pumpkin and baby pumpkin or a big autumn leaf and small one to represent mother and child! Check out our other holiday baby shower ideas and baby shower games.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - OCTOBER 2009
Get into the spirit by using Halloween candy as decorations for the baby shower. Choose the mommy-to-be's favorite along with some candy pacifiers, baby jaw breakers and Baby Ruth bars to get into the baby shower theme! Place mama and baby ghosts up on the wall and even have a baby shower costume party! Check out more baby shower themes.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - SEPTEMBER 2009
To save money, have a high tea with your friends and family while the men get together and watch "Three Men and a Baby". Have everyone bring one pack of essential baby shower items like diapers, wipes, onsies and pacifiers to make sure the parents to be have what is needed for the first few months. Make sure to plan for the weather as it is still hot and humid in September.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2009
There are many baby shower games you can play. An easy game to throw together includes light plug protectors and a jar. Throw a bunch of light plug protectors in a jar and have everyone guess how many there are. The winner gets a small baby shower gift that also can be given to the mommy-to-be. All of the plug protectors will be given to the mommy-to-be which are very much a needed gift. The best baby shower games are those that include a useful item that mom can keep after the game is over. Thanks to Virginia for this great idea.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JULY 2009
Baby Shower Bucks: Thanks to Angela T's for an amazing baby shower idea: My sister and I have started a tradition of handing out baby or belly bucks for winning games, being the first to arrive, following the instructions on the invitation (bring invite, baby picture) etc. We customize the money to coordinate with the particular baby shower theme but play money can be used just as well. We have all the nice baby shower prizes displayed at a table. At the end of the games, we make them bid on the prizes. It can get very loud and competitive. Many of our friends have since copied the idea. Click here to download the baby shower bucks.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JUNE 2009
A cute idea is to make diaper favors by taking a square paper napkin, fold in half (into a triangle). Bring 2 long side together in the middle and the point up to meet the 2 long sides. Pin all 3 sides together at the center making a diaper. Melt some parafin wax and dip diaper. Place on wax paper to dry making sure to keep diaper open so candy can be placed in diaper when wax is dry. These are very cute and can be done to match the theme or colors of the shower. Check out our baby shower favors or baby shower candy ideas. It is going to start heating up now so make sure to think about where the baby shower will be and what you should wear. Bring sunscreen, hats and sun glasses if outside.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MAY 2009
A great baby shower gift idea is to have a "time of the day" party. On the baby shower invitations go over a time (e.g., bath time, breakfast time, sleep time) and have your baby shower guests bring baby shower gifts of that time period. That way, you actually get gifts that are functional! A great way to give a functional baby shower gift is to bring a baby shower diaper cake.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - APRIL 2009
Spring is here and a great time to have an outdoor baby shower if it is warm. A great baby shower idea is called "message in a bottle" where you either draw on poster board a large bottle or get a real large bottle (preferably plastic) and write on it "baby shower message in a bottle". Have each baby shower guest write a message to the new baby and parents-to-be, whether a word of wisdom, life tip, parent tip or a simple hello. When the baby gets older, it is a great memento to open up or break open the container to read all the papers! Make sure the date is on the bottle or poster board! Place all the papers in a memory book later on or keep the poster board to show the baby when growing into an adult! Thanks to Robin for this great baby shower idea!

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2009 - HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!
With the economy still moving down, more practical baby shower gifts make sense. A great idea is to get gift cards to the parent's favorite baby stores or markets which will help them out a lot. Also, packs of diapers are a big hit! Have a great March and make sure to set your clocks forward on March 8th.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 2009 - HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Have every baby shower guest give a valentine's day card to the parent's to be with baby advice (i.e., make sure to still have date night with your spouse, remember that time flies so enjoy the little one) and purchase a keepsake box where you can place all the cards in with the date of the baby shower. Place candy hearts on the table as decorations. Also check out some great valentine's baby gifts like baby diaper cakes which are a cute baby shower gift as well as helpful to the new parents.

BABY SHOWER IDEA OF THE MONTH - JANUARY 2009 - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Take lots of great pictures during the baby shower and create a photo album as a gift with the first few pages having pictures you took from the baby shower. This will be a memorable gift that will be cherished by the parent's-to-be. A great gift is also creating thank you cards for the mommy-to-be that are already stamped and addressed! Thank you cards are a wonderful way to help the mommy while she is thinking of other things like having a baby :)
