Make It The Best Baby Shower Ever

When it comes to baby showers, save on what you need while showering them with love. We’ve got tips on how to host the perfect virtual or home celebration and on how to find the right gift.

Tips for Attending a Baby Shower

  • If you’re attending a virtual baby shower this summer, still dress the part. It will make you have more fun and make the mother feel special as well.
  • If you’re attending a drive-by baby shower, decorate your car with washable paint and streamers. Check out our great party line with items starting at $1 here.
  • Whether arriving virtually or in person, arrive on time. Baby showers are packed with activities you don’t want to miss. The host will appreciate it too.

Affordable Gift Ideas:

PRACTICAL GIFTS: You can never have enough diapers and wipes. A gift like this is always needed. Try out our Gentle Steps Baby care line.

CLOTHES: There will be plenty of changes in between messes. So help keep the baby looking stylish with affordable and adorable outfits from brands like Swiggles®.

PARENT-TIME: Don’t forget the parents. Consider a package full of personal care items such as bubble bath, body wash and facial scrub. Add a candle for added relaxation. They’ll love you for this. Studio Selection has great options.

LET MOM CHOOSE: Keep it simple. Gift cards are great as they allow the guest of honor to choose their purchases. If not attending in person, you can easily mail these out. Find a store

DON’T HAVE THE WORDS: Put it in writing. Share a special message of congratulations with the parents (or just round out the gift basket) with a greeting card from Dollar General starting at $0.50. Dollar General is also a one-stop shop for gift-packaging essentials like gift wrap, bags, tissue paper and more.

Tips on Hosting a Baby Shower

  • You can host a small virtual baby shower for your loved one or a drive-by baby shower.
  • If hosting a virtual shower, pick the right platform that works for you and your group. Send out the link information with any other instructions beforehand via text or email.
  • Pick a fun theme for your virual or in-person baby shower. Ensure your guests know what attire to wear.
  • When we do get together again: consider asking guests to bring a small dish or dessert for a potluck style shower. Provide a list of suggested food items and have guests pick from the list without fear of having two of the same item! Here are some food items to choose from: Good & Smart™ PopcornClover Valley® Crackers, and Clover Valley® Cookies.
  • Location, location, location. If searching for venues, consider various fees and costs that may accrue with renting out a room, chairs and tables. Or host the shower at someone’s home or a free space like a park pavilion as this can save money on rental fees.
  • Go paperless. Digital invitations can be a great option for larger guest lists as they are easy to send, track and may save money on postage.
  • Stay on theme. Consider a color scheme when buying decorations, invitations and tableware. Stick to one or two colors to keep purchasing simple. Decorate the space with affordable party decorations like streamers, garland and banners from your local Dollar General. Disposable tablecovers can be an easy and inexpensive way to pull together a color scheme. Plus, it saves time on wiping down tables.
  • Make a list. Plan ahead on items you may or may not have on hand to host the party like tables, chairs and tableware. Disposable trays, bowls, plates, utensils, napkins and cups may provide an easy cleanup option. Find affordable tableware at Dollar General or online in the party section.
