What is a “bring a book” baby shower?
“Bring a book” baby showers are exactly what you think they are. It’s very common to purchase a card and sign it whenever you’re giving a gift. Cards are lovely, and they can be a wonderful way of expressing love and good wishes to the person who receives them.
However, most cards are only read once and then discarded or put away. By bringing your favorite childhood book instead of a card to a baby shower, you’re ensuring that your gift will be used for a long time. You can also send the book directly to the guest of honor if it’s a virtual baby shower. Mom and dad will be able to read lovely books to their new baby, and in a few years, that baby will be able to read them on his or her own!
