BABY SHOWER PRIZES
people have written in, asking what types of baby shower prizes should
be given out and what the etiquette is for who receives the prizes. We
will answer these important questions below:
Traditionally, only the
mommy-to-be and the person(s) who threw the baby shower would receive
gifts and thank you's. Over the years, as
shower games have become more popular, there are now prizes that are
given out to the baby shower participants. The important factor if
giving out prizes is that it is not about expensive prizes and gifts as
much as something meaningful. Below we have listed our more popular
ideas for baby shower prizes:

Baby Shower Gag
When playing baby shower games, baby
shower booby prizes are always a lot of fun. Instead of only awarding
prizes to the winners, it would be fun to prank the loser. The loser can
choose from any of the following:
1) Wear an adult disposable diaper
for 30 minutes (or towel held up by rubber bands on the sides)
2) Receive a little girl or little boy hairdo that must be worn for
the remainder of the shower
3) Keep a pacifier in their mouth for 15 full minutes
4) Wear a bib for the remainder of the shower
5) Drink a bottle of any beverage until it is empty
6) Eat a jar of baby food
These baby shower gags can also be played
on the winner to be funny. Thanks to baby shower visitor Becky A. for
