Christmas baby shower ideas. Tis the Season- five jolly and festive baby celebrations, you can plan for the holiday season and beyond.

Even with busy holiday schedules, loved ones still know, how important it is to celebrate the joy of becoming new parents. While everyone is gathered in the spirit of the holidays, go the extra mile and throw a heart warming-winter- welcome for an expected, or newly arrived baby.   

Five easy ideas for hosting

1. Make it a festive, “surprise family or couples shower.” This is really a great way to stretch your time and make planning easier. Most of the menu and party prep will already be done. Mix in some extra cheer with, a baby shower game or activity.  You can add a winter theme to nearly any shower game.  

Easy Examples:

  • If you want to play, “Guess Mommy’s Tummy Size” replace the tape measure with a replicated Santa belt or jingle harness.
  • Instead of a standard gift table;  fashion a red (Santa) bag, a table top Christmas tree, or cardboard sleigh for guests to place their baby gifts.

2. Host the baby shower early. If you’re hoping to throw mommy, “a full-blown shower” with all the tinsel and trimming; try to plan the party for the first week (or) first Sunday in December.  Many people are obligated to other parties and activities throughout the month. Planning for a weekday evening or Sunday afternoon early in the season, will probably work best.

3. Turn a yearly Christmas party into a festive, “sprinkle.” Are you an annual holiday party host?  Perhaps, you put on a intimate dinner party?  Whatever the venue, it’s very easy to transform it into a baby celebration. Baby sprinkles are usually, “low key.”  If the guest list is short, you may want to host the sprinkle  2-3 hours ahead of your anticipated holiday party.  For larger groups, coeds and couples, plan to incorporate Christmas baby shower ideas you can use during the holiday party.

4. Host a virtual baby shower. Of course, it’s not always possible to bring everyone together.  If the guest of honor, or the ones dearest to her can not be present for the shower- host it online. With a couple of webcams and Skype, a successful baby shower is totally doable!  

5. Go low-key and low-stress. Gather, mommy’s closest friends for a day of pampering and relaxation at a favorite spa, or resort. Cater lunch from the local deli, and serve, cupcakes for dessert. In place of baby gifts, present mom-to-be with, a gift card from, the whole group.
