Anytime I plan a game for a party, I always try to think of prizes that I know the guests will actually get some use out of. If you know your party guests well, it may be easy to brainstorm ideas. Here are some ideas for baby shower game prizes that may be a hit with your guests. Remember that a prize is not a gift – you don’t have to spend a lot of money on a prize to make it special.
Baby Shower Game Prizes:
Chocolate or Candy: It’s tough to go wrong with chocolate or candy prizes. With so many food allergies these days, it would be a good idea to have a few different selections available.
Food: Outside of chocolate or candy, there are plenty of ideas for food favors like homemade cookies or a snack pack (bag of popcorn, seasoning salt and a pop). One of my favorites are homemade muffins with a secret ingredient – baby food!
Gift Certificates: A simple $5 certificate to a popular fast food chain or coffee shop is a prize that guests would love to receive. Actually, at the last baby shower I planned one of the child guests won a coffee shop gift card – never too early to start on caffeine I suppose…kidding of course!
Silly Certificates: Sometimes the best gift of all is simply a good laugh. Before the party, make a few silly certificates for the games you’ll be playing. They may not be a keepsake that guests will hang onto but the laughter will be worth it. Here are a few examples to help you get started:
- Best Person To Call For Late Night Diaper Duty (this could be awarded to the winner of a silly diapering game)
- Least Likely To Be Called For Babysitting Services (this could be awarded to someone who scores the lowest in a fun baby care game)
