What is a Baby Shower Game Prize?

A baby shower game prize is a prize that you award the winner (or winners) of a game. You don’t have to have a prize, but prizes do make the baby shower games more fun and exciting!

Do I Need to Have Shower Games and Prizes?

Baby shower games and prizes are completely optional but are a fun way to include guests in the party. Having games and prizes at your baby shower can help encourage participation among those who don’t like to get too out there or are perhaps just shy, which is totally okay! They’re also a great way to get guests to mix and mingle during the party.

How Many Baby Shower Game Prizes to Have

How many prizes you have is up to you! You could have a prize for every game, or have a big prize for the winner and smaller prizes for participants. Or you could choose not to have any prizes at all. There really are not set rules on the right amount of prizes to have.

Tips for Choosing Prizes

Here are a few of our top tips for choosing which baby shower prize to give out:

Pick Something Everyone Will Like – You know your guests best so choose a gift you know a majority of the guests will like.

Have Fun With It – You can have fun with your prizes by personalizing them in some way. This is a fun way for guests to also remember your baby shower

Pick Your Prize Range – Figure out how much money you’re willing to spend on shower prizes then choose a prize that fits into your budget.

Stick to Your Theme…or Not! – If you have a themed baby shower, you can stick to your baby shower theme for prizes…or not. For example, if you have a nautical-themed baby shower, you could give out prizes like a beach day gift basket.
