What are some ways to make your pregnant partner’s baby shower special?

Cupid’s Advice:

Throwing a baby shower can be a daunting task, especially if you’re spearheading the planning process.  Here are a few ways to make your partner’s baby shower special:

1. Find what they like: Chances are, your partner is expecting a baby shower.  Don’t be afraid to partially ruin the surprise by asking your partner what she would prefer.  Ask her about general themes, the guest list, etc.  By asking vague questions you will be able to throw the ideal shower without giving too much away.

2. Add a surprise: If you do ruin part of the surprise, be sure to make up for it.  Invite a faraway friend she hasn’t seen in years or have guests bring old photos of your partner.  Touching surprises like these will make her shower all the more memorable.

3. Give your own gift: Though it’s only customary for the guests to give gifts, surprise your partner with a present of your own.  Give her something heartfelt and meaningful that will differentiate your gift from the others.
