Have you been tasked with planning a gender-neutral baby shower? We know it can be exciting yet overwhelming at first, from thinking of food, decor, games, the venue and more! Worry not, we’ve got you covered! Here are some of our top ideas and tips to help you plan the perfect celebration for the baby to be, whether it’s a little boy or a little girl!

1. Select a show-stopper theme

Baby Shower themes have evolved so much over the years. From the usual pink and blue themes, people have moved on to fun themes like succulent themes, a boho-chic theme or a fun animal woodland theme. The sky's the limit if you move beyond the traditional baby shower themes!

Here’s a starry baby shower theme we absolutely love!

2. Plan fun invites- save trees and go digital!

A great baby shower party starts with a fun invite! Use a heartfelt message, an adorable illustration and send it across to your guests on email or WhatsApp! Make sure to add gender-neutral elements in the invites to help the guests in planning the gifts in advance!
Something like this beary adorable invite that we just love!

3. Create a Gender-Neutral Gift Registry

Help your guests to pick a fairly gender-neutral gift by providing them with a well-thought gift registry. Make sure to include various gift elements that go beyond baby clothes and swaddles which help them explore the gender-neutral baby shower gifting. Parents are often gifted repeat gifts and you can go the extra mile and give them something thoughtful, personalised and unique!

We have a few fun gifting options that are not your typical gift, and are refreshingly gender-neutral.

 4. Arrange fun party favours

Make it memorable for your guests even after the fun is over, by giving them a small but thoughtful keepsake. Plan some heart-melting party favours which will stay with your guests for a long time and convey your gratitude in the most special way possible.

We absolutely love these succulent party favours! So thoughtful!
