Plan a party for the arrival of the baby

There is a great custom in America, and it is popularly called “baby gift”, a party that is organized before the birth of a baby where you can literally get everything you will need for the first period. Here are some tips on how to plan a party for your baby.

It is our custom to give a baby as a gift when it is born, and family and friends usually come to see the baby in the first 40 days after birth, better known to us as grandmothers. We have to admit, we like this American custom a little more, because in that way, young parents can get a lot of useful things and save a lot of money even before they are born.

Baby gifts are usually organized just before the end of pregnancy, and it is customary for the party to be organized by someone who is not related to the couple who needs to have a baby so that they would not think that they are doing it just for the sake of gifts. Although that, let’s be realistic, is the main reason.


When to invite a gift

Mostly close friends, family members and work colleagues with whom the pregnant woman has a better relationship than with other work colleagues are invited to donate. If you are preparing a party for someone close to you, be sure to ask when the future mother would like and who would not like to see him at that party.

By no means do you want to expose a pregnant woman to the stress of unwanted guests.

Although baby giving is mostly reserved for women only, you are free to break that rule and invite grandparents, brothers, young couples,…

When you invite people to a party for the birth of a child, it would be good to give them a hint of what would be good to bring as a gift and what is most needed by future parents at that moment. In the USA, there is also a so-called list of gifts in certain stores where young parents make a list of what they want, so guests visit the store and choose what they want to bring as a gift.


The best gifts

Tell guests that the best gifts are diapers, bottles, moles, pacifiers, baby cosmetics,… Little things that may not cost much, but will mean a lot to future parents.


How to organize a party

  • You can choose a specific theme of entertainment, but it is not necessary. The theme will only help you choose the decoration, food and drinks more easily. Make sure to find cakes and snacks for children and, of course, a cake.
  • Provide snacks and refreshing drinks, but without exaggeration, the main goal of the party is to pay tribute to the pregnant woman and the baby who is yet to be born. Forget about alcoholic drinks and what the future mother must not consume.
  • Design fun games to entertain guests.
  • One of the customs at such parties is the opening of gifts, which is always fun and instructive.
