How to Set Up a Diaper Raffle (Guide + Ideas)

Sharing is caring!

A diaper raffle is a great way to get people excited about your baby shower. It’s also an excellent way to show the guest of honor, mommy, that you care and want to help her out with all those post-baby expenses! In this blog post we’ll go over everything you need to know about how to set up a diaper raffle.

What is a Diaper Raffle

A diaper raffle is a baby shower game where guests can bring a package of diapers and receive a ticket. At the party the host will raffle off prizes to whatever raffle ticket is selected.

Supplies Needed

To do a diaper raffle, all you need are:

You could also set up a cute little table at the baby shower for guest to put diapers. My favorite is to put up a table cloth with streamers and balloons, along with a little container to put in raffle tickets. You want to make sure you don’t put too much on the table so there’s plenty of room for diapers!

Prizes for diaper raffles really can be anything you want and the fun part is they don’t have to be baby things! In my opinion, the best prizes are ones that can be used by all of us!

A few of my favorite prizes to give out are:

  • gift baskets (filled with different candy, sweets, etc.)
  • gift cards
  • lottery tickets
  • bottle of wine

It’s really up to you what the prize is!
