What kind of prize gifts?

by Diane

How do I know what to give for prize gifts when someone wins a game?

Our Answer:

Hi Diane,

There are a variety of things you can use as prizes at a baby shower. When thinking of a prize gift to give out; think of something that you would like to receive as a prize. You can tailor your prizes to match your theme or use general items that all women love.

You can either have them placed in a basket to choose from or have a specific prize set out for each game.

Here are a few ideas to use...

  • chocolate
  • candy bars
  • candles
  • homemade goodies
  • bath wash, gel or bath bubbles
  • fancy notepaper and a pen
  • hair products
  • a dozen roses-with 1 rose given to each winner
  • nail polish
  • lip gloss
  • $5 gift cards to Starbucks or Redbox

    Those are just a few prize gift ideas you could use. To choose the perfect one for you think of your guests and their likes. When in doubt go with chocolate!

    I hope that helps. Good luck planning the baby shower!

    Prize Ideas
    by: Becky

    We didn't have a lot of extra time with the baby shower I hosted recently to make desserts. I ended up scouring the dollar and thrift stores to come up with cool gifts to use for game prizes. I took coordinating tissue paper to match the party colors and wrapped all of the gifts. Then I tied them with curling ribbon and set in a basket. The guests were really excited to pick their gifts. It was lots of fun!

    Gift Card Prizes
    by: Merilee

    We put together some fun game prizes for my sister in law's baby shower. The most popular out of the prizes for the guests were the $5 gift cards. We bought gift cards at Starbucks, blockbuster and target. It was fun to see how competitive everyone got for the Starbucks cards!

    It was lots of fun. I will definitely be using this idea again the next time I host!
