Baby Shower Gift
(Santa Rosa, CA)
I am hosting a baby shower for my sister, I have given her all of my baby items i.e. crib, stroller, playpen etc. My question is, do I still get her a baby shower gift if I am hosting the shower?
What a lucky sister you have!! You have stocked her up with baby supplies AND you are giving her a baby shower! That is very generous of you.
As far as an additional gift from you, as the hostess, it is not required. As a hostess, your gift to her is the baby shower. That in itself is a wonderful gift.
If you feel you want to give more than that, there are a few games and centerpieces that can also double as gifts.
The memory game, where a tray is brought out with baby items on it can be given to the mom to be afterward. A diaper cake, towel cake or other centerpieces from our centerpiece gallery can be used as decorations and then given as a gift afterwards.
Then there are the guessing games. One of which they guess how many candies are in the baby bottle, another is to guess the type of baby food. Both of those can be given to the mom to be afterwards.
These are just ideas if you would like to give something additional to your sister beyond the baby shower. But it definitely is not a requirement.
You are a great sister. Good luck planning the baby shower!
