Generating your checklist of baby needs is one of the joys of your first pregnancy. Baby needs range from absolute necessities to the “nice to have” items on the baby registry checklist. Generating your baby registry checklist adds excitement to the remaining months of waiting for the brand new arrival.

Begin the baby shower game with the following steps:

  • Take about six baby items that can be expensive or even inexpensive items.
  • Have cards already made that have the correct price printed on the card. Place it in front of the baby items preferably on a stand.
  • Attach a card above and below the blank card with two different prices on them. One will be too high or two low and the other price will be the correct price. Be sure to keep a list of the correct price in your hand as you play the game.
  • Have your guests take turns at guessing the correct price. Of course the guest that comes closest to the retail price is the winner for that item.

The guest that wins the most correct answers is of course the winner of the game and can receive the prize. It is suggested that the baby gifts that you have displayed go to the mom-to-be. You can find very nice personal baby shower favors for your guests you can use as prizes.

Visit your local grocery store and ask for any square boxes that they are breaking down. Get boxes that are almost the same size in width and height. Purchase spray paint or regular paint from the discount store. Then paint the boxes pink and blue. Take poster paper and trace large letters that say boy or girl or baby. If you know the gender of the baby and know the name you can make the blocks with the baby�s name on them, one letter for each box. You can set these blocks up on either side of the chair that the new mom will sit at to open her baby gifts.

For baby shower decorations that will add accent to the room make these streamers. Use poster board and cut out cute baby shirts and packages that are wrapped baby gifts. You can make football jerseys for a boy and lacy dress for a girl. To add personal touches write the names of the parents on one shirt the names of the grandparents on another. If there are any siblings they can have a monogrammed shirt as well. String these shirts together with yarn and hang anywhere in the room for a cute finishing touch.

If you know the gender of the baby we have wonderful baby gifts in adorable clothing at www.treasureboxkids.com. Visit us to see our line of quality clothing for your baby, toddler and of course girls Birthday party dresses.

When it comes to baby gifts and baby gift ideas why not create a lasting memory? Here is something others will look at and wish they had thought about for their own child�s memories. This makes a perfect new baby gift that will be appreciated for years to come.

On the actual day of the baby�s birth, be sure to save the newspaper. Get popular magazines from People and Time that are from the week of his/her birth. You always see the cards that make notes of what prices were and who was in office for a particular year. Now, they can have the actual publications from that time for later. The newspaper will have prices and ads for food so it will be fun to compare later.

Put these memory items in a plastic storage box and present it to the parents. Tell them that the reason for the large size box is for them to add to memories to it as baby grows. Over the years it would be nice if they would place articles of importance in there, such as a certain blanket, or stuffed animal.

They will not realize until later how much they appreciate saving those very special things. When children are growing it is easy to toss things aside once a parent feels the child has outgrown the item. If they have a place to store them where they will be safe it will create a lifelong memory.
