Baby shower books instead of cards

by Shelly K.

(Helena, Ohio)

We are going to do this for my daugther’s shower.

On the invitation, ask the guests to bring a book instead of a gretting card and sign the inside cover as the card. It’s a very cute poem. (see below). So, at the shower the mommy-to-be will receive lots of books for her baby instead of cards with her gifts.

poem example-

Instead of a card, please let (name) look,
At your special choice of a book,
And then to baby she will read
With all the love a newborn will need.
So with a personal touch, please choose a book
And in it then your name do put.
It need not cost more than a card
Just pick a favorite, it shouldn’t be hard.

Awsome idea!

This idea was such a great success! All of our guests commented on how fun it was to instead of a card find their favorite childrens book that they or their own children loved. My daugther received such a nice variety of books for her son with special notes inside from her family and friends.

This is such a great idea. It’s a good way to help build the baby’s library. And your poem fits perfectly with this idea.

Thanks for sharing this!
