You will DEFINITELY be needing pens for whatever baby shower games you're planning, and it'll just be so much easier to get a pack of pens than rootling through drawers for biros near the end of their life. Alternatively, if you're making a memories book for your pal, get people to sign it in different colours.

Baby Shower Invitations

Yes, we know you'll probably make a Facebook event to invite people to the shower, but there's something so nice about receiving a paper envelope through the post. It'll be a lovely keepsake to show the baby when they're all grown up.

It's only right - at hen dos you have a giant inflatable penis, so at a baby shower you should have a giant inflatable dummy! It just makes good sense!
