Clever And Cute Baby Shower Idea

When sending out the invitations, explain that it is an "Around The Clock Baby Shower" where each guest is assigned a different time of day. What ever time of day you get, you buy a baby gift that corresponds to that time.

For example, if I had the hour of 4 am on my invitation, I would need to buy a gift that would be useful during that time of day. A great 4 am gift might be: bottles, a receiving blanket, a soothing baby lullaby CD and a large container of coffee for the tired new mom!

This is clever way to change things up a bit and add some excitement to the baby shower! It is always interesting to see how creative people get when choosing their gift.
