Thinking Outside the Bundle: Unique Baby Shower Invitation Ideas

A new baby is a joyous occasion to celebrate, so of course you’ll want the invitation to the baby shower to be unique and very special. Keep in mind that baby shower invitations don’t have to be just the usual card-in-the-mail kind of thing. You can have a baby shower invitation printed on just about anything you choose. The following are some ideas to help make your baby shower invitation special and one of a kind.

Scratch Off Baby Shower Invitations

Our Baby Shower Scratch Off Game Cards can be used to encourage guest interaction at the baby shower, but we can also customize a similar concept to create the perfect Scratch Off Baby Shower Invitation. A fun and exciting idea is to include a Scratch Off Gender Reveal as part of your unique baby shower invitation. If you’ve chosen a very creative baby shower theme, a custom invitation is the perfect way to build anticipation for the event.

Tea Party Themed Invitation

If your baby shower is going to have a tea party theme, there are several ways you can incorporate the theme for your invitations. You can send a flat invitation that is shaped like a tea bag (like this one from ALadysbugLane) or teapot, or you can find an invitation that includes a pocket so that you can actually send a tea bag as part of the invitation. A clever line like “a baby is brewing,” or something similar, makes it fun.

Newsprint Invitation

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! You can start with a catchy headline, personalized for the mom-to-be, and add the essential information as part of the “newspaper article.” This is a great idea if the mom-to-be would like to share a bit about the baby’s story in the fine print.

Balloon Invitation

“She’s Ready to Pop!” You can find LifeAsPaper on Etsy and order a clever baby shower invitation printed on a balloon and attached to a card for mailing. The person receiving the invite will have to blow up the balloon to see what it’s all about!

Wooden Baby Block Invitation

A company called Sideshow Press can create an adorable screen print on a small wooden block as part of your baby shower invitation. You can have the shower information printed on the sides of the block with any font you choose. Select a design that fits the mom-to-be. Her friends and family will enjoy getting the box in the mail and will have a keepsake to remember the special occasion.

 Library Card Invitation

 Help the new mom build her baby a library of children’s books with this cute idea. You can fill the card with all the information needed and make a notation to bring a loved children’s book instead of a card with your baby gift.

Make It Memorable

Whichever unique baby shower invitation idea you choose, the occasion is sure to be memorable for the guests, and especially for the mom-to-be. With the versatility of Scratch Off Labels from My Scratch Offs, you can add an extra element of fun to any of the ideas mentioned in this post.
