For snacks, instead of dainty cupcakes and cookies, include savory finger foods like sliders or sausage rolls.

One popular shower activity is creating a Diary of Wisdom, which includes passing around a notebook, during the baby shower. All the guests write a small note of encouragement for the first time parents to read after the baby is born, giving them something to look forward to!
