Time is precious with family and friends, and many Moms have strayed from traditional gift opening to spend that time visiting with loved ones. The solution? Host a display shower where guests are asked to bring their gifts unwrapped. Designate someone to place name tags on all the gifts so Mom knows who gave her what. Be sure to insert display shower request cards in the invitations...
How much to spend
on a baby shower gift?
The average baby shower gift cost all depends on how close the relationship is with the parents-to-be. Casual acquaintances may choose to spend $25, while close family members are more in the $200 range. Fortunately, cheap baby shower gifts are needed just as much as the more expensive items, so keep it real and don't overspend.
