For those financially better off mums-to-be or just those who already have what they need, donating the gifts to charity would be a great idea. Of course, you would have to make this clear in the invitations as guests may be offended if their well -chosen gift bought specifically for the mum-to-be's new baby was then given away. However, if guests were told upfront that the expectant mum had all they could possibly need already that they would love to be able to give some essentials to new parents who have very little, most guests would be happy to oblige. The focus here would usually be on essentials needed such as nappies, wipes, newborn clothing, blankets, muslins and so on. Best Baby Shower is one of the UK's leading specialist baby shower online sites for all your baby shower partyware and gifts including handmade baby bouquets and nappy cakes.
Bake a Smurf themed baby shower cake The cake decorating section of most craft stores have character themed cake pans, so you might be able to find one there or special order one. Check online stores, as well. If you can't find a character shaped cake pan, you can still use frosting to draw a picture of a Smurf on to a round layered cake or a sheet cake. Or, you could bake a cake similar to the diaper cake, and place Smurf figurines on the various layers as well as colored frosting.
Throw a baby shower tea party for charity. Many charities already use this method of fund-raising themselves. The idea being that on a particular date they ask people to hold a tea party and ask guests to donate a small amount of money to attend. If the baby shower was due to fall around one of these dates it could be tied in with the specific charity publicising the event nationally. If not, however, you could perhaps ask the mum-to-be which charity she would most like to support. Make it clear in the invitations that you are asking for a charity donation rather than for them to bring a gift as the mum-to-be already has everything they need and that they would love to be able to give something to others whilst still being able to enjoy the company of their friends.
