Baby shower gift reactions

by Karen L.


I hope I can explain this well enough so someone can understand what I’m looking for.

A while back I attended a coed baby shower. At the time when mommy and daddy to be were opening all of the presents a friend of the family was writing down their reactions to each gift, i.e., “Oh how cute”, “Look how tiny that is” etc. When they were all finished the friend read back their reactions but added some kind of story to go along with each “reaction”. It was so hilarious people were crying from laughing so hard.

I cannot remember the story that went along with it and am hoping that someone can help. I have tried to search the internet, but I don’t know exactly how to describe it well enough to get any good hits. Does this familiar to anyone?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its called: That’s What She Said

That’s What She Said

Secretly, while the mom-to-be is opening her gifts, have someone jot down a bunch of the things she says as she’s exclaiming over the items (like “Oh, it’s adorable!” “Green is such a great color!” “I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this!”).

After all the gifts have been opened, announce that it’s a little-known fact that the things a pregnant woman says as she’s opening baby gifts are the very same things she said when the baby was conceived. Then read back the quotes and enjoy the laughs. (If the father-to-be is there, he’ll especially appreciate hearing “Look how tiny it is!”)

Lingerie shower, not baby shower

by: Expecting in Oklahoma

I’ve heard this several times, but it is always at a lingerie shower for a bride-to-be, never at a baby shower.

The hostess secretly writes down what the bride says as she opens each lingerie item “It’s so soft!” “Oh, it has polka-dots!” “What would my mom think?” etc. At the end of the night, after all the gifts have been opened, the hostess reads back what the bride said, prefacing it with “This is what (bride) will say on the wedding night…”!

If there is a way to adapt this for a baby shower, I’ve never heard of it.
