Have a Santa-like surprise gift delivery After the mother-to-be (or both mom and dad) arrive at the baby shower, and everyone is enjoying some food (and the kids are being entertained), enlist the help of someone to deliver all the gifts.When guests arrive, ask them to drop the gifts into your garage, into a vehicle parked out the way, or in another hiding spot. Then, the helper can gather them into a bag and deliver them to the party. Ask this person to dress in a Smurf or Smurfette costume so it's the same type of scene as someone dressed as Santa delivering Christmas gifts.
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.
Incorporate a raffle into the games. One of the most well -known games is a sweepstake where guests can guess details such as the date on which the baby will be born, how heavy the baby will be, whether it will be a boy or a girl and so on. It's not uncommon for guests to pay a small amount such as one pound to enter the sweepstake. Often this is called the 'nappy fund' with the idea being that the money is used by the new parents to buy nappies for the baby. However, it could also be put to very good use as a charity donation. Another game where this would work would be 'guess the number of sweets in the jar' where the guests would again all donate a small amount to take part and have a chance at winning the jar of sweets.
