Advice for the Parents-to-be
Looking for a sweet keepsake for the parents-to-be? Consider offering guests advice cards that they can fill out for the parents-to-be.

Advice cards are wonderful way to extend the love beyond just the baby shower event. The parents can read them after the event and then again and again. The cards will be a great keepsake for the parents as they grow into their new roles.
Depending on your baby shower audience, you might even consider having the parents read some of the advice aloud (for guests who wouldn't mind it). This exchange of advice can be a great bonding experience for the attendees of the event. Some of the advice might elicit some tears of happiness and love and other might garner some laughter from the crowd. Regardless, it will be a memorable experience for everyone.
Baby Shower BINGO
Add some fun to the baby shower with a classic baby shower BINGO game!
This is a simple game where each guest is given a game sheet and pen. They will fill in the squares with items that they think the parents-to-be will receive. They can add common baby items like onsies, stuffed animal, gift card, diapers and more. Don't forget they can also add the gift that they brought for the parents-to-be. Once everyone has their cards filled out, the gift opening can begin!
As gifts are opened, guests a can mark out the ones that match their BINGO card. The first guest to get five horizontal, vertical or diagonal wins! Depending on how many prizes you will have for the game, you can keep playing until you have more winners. Since the guests will be writing out their own game sheets, no two game sheets will be alike, and so you won't likely have several winners come forward at once.
