I adore throwing parties and baby showers are no exception. After all, there is nothing more exciting then welcoming a sweet squishy baby into this world. Although, sometimes baby showers can get a little tricky for co-workers. Do you really want to be looking at their breast pump selection and how much is the right amount to spend?
That’s why I L-O-V-E the type of baby shower that is often thrown for those expecting around my office. It’s a “Stock The Baby Library” shower! Each person attending the shower brings in a book or two of their choosing. Often folks choose something sentimental like their own childhood favorite or a book that their little one read each night. Typically a book sign-up sheet is circulated so that we don’t end up with 5 copies of Goodnight Moon. Next, the host typically purchases a cute basket and baby blanket to collect them all in. And voila! The perfect office shower gift is presented to the mom-to-be.
Last week we put together the above basket for a good friend and below is Jake’s own baby library basket, a go-to each night as we decide what to read.
What do you think? Would you love receiving this shower as much as I did? Do you have any great and easy ways to celebrate co-workers?
