What is a baby shower?
A baby shower is a celebration typically held before the birth of a baby, usually organized by friends or family members of the expectant parents. The purpose of a baby shower is to shower the expectant mother (and sometimes the expectant father as well) with gifts, love, and support as they prepare for the arrival of their baby.
Baby showers can take many forms, but typically include games and activities, food and drinks, and the opening of gifts. The gifts given at a baby shower can range from practical items like diapers, wipes, and baby clothes, to more sentimental items like keepsakes and books.
Baby showers are a common tradition in many cultures and are a way to celebrate the expectant parents and welcome the new addition to the family.
