Having a baby is the most magical time for women and men alike. It is definitely one of the most looked forward to moments in every person’s life. A baby makes a family whole, especially for young newlyweds. It is also a bit stressful, though. Carrying a baby for 9 months changes a woman’s body a lot. The final couple of months can also be stressful for the soon-to-be dad, as well. Mostly, because that is the time for making a baby room and buying all the furniture and accessories the baby is going to need. In conclusion, getting ready to welcome a newborn into your home is a lot of work. However, there is one particular fun activity that all future parents look forward to – the baby shower. We have gathered the best baby shower themes for boys to inspire everyone throwing a shower for the parents-to-be.
What is a baby shower?
The baby shower is a party for a woman, who is expecting a child, where friends and relatives bring gifts for the baby. It is usually an all-female type of party, however, nowadays, more and more families opt out for co-ed baby showers, where the father and his friends are invited as well. Usually, it is a close friends’ responsibility to throw a baby shower. Furthermore, a distant relative, like a cousin or an aunt, can also throw the party. The term shower implies that the person, who the party is for, will be “showered” with gifts. That is why, neither the parents of the expecting couple, nor the couple themselves throw the party. According to some people, that is considered rude, as if the parents are asking for gifts.
What are the best and most unique baby shower themes for boys?
There are great baby shower theme ideas related to different characters, for example. What’s more, many people choose Disney themes for their showers. And, because we are discussing baby shower themes for boys, sports themed baby shower is always a good idea, as well. When throwing a baby shower, consider what the parents like. For example, I have a friend who was about to have a little girl, but she said that she doesn’t want any pink clothes. She didn’t want to dress her little baby girl in stereotypical pink. So, it was interesting to see what people had come up with for presents with that in mind. To sum up, it is important what do the parents like. Are they creative and artistic, or, maybe, they are sports obsessed? Maybe they are doctors? Simply, ask yourself what would they want for their child.

The good news is, that, when it comes to decorations you have a lot of options. First of all, for a baby shower for a boy, it is always easy to go with blue. We, however, strongly believe in freedom of choice, so instead of being stereotypical, be creative. Furthermore, there are so many beautiful decoration ideas with different colours and themes. You can have blue motifs or choose a color palette, which involves blue. Include lots of flowers and balloons, as well. Your main dessert table should be the main focus. If the parents have already decided on the name, why not hang it on the wall.

Above all, sweets are a very important aspect of a baby shower. There is usually a beautiful cake, serving as a centrepiece. It is usually surrounded by lots of beautifully decorated cupcakes, cake-pops and cookies. All of them are in the same theme, or share the same colours. Furthermore, you can decorate the table with different flower bouquets, or beautiful letters or ribbons.

Choosing a gift for a baby shower can be a rather tricky thing. Usually, couples have a registry to make it easier for you. If they don’t, however, you should definitely choose something that is going to come in handy. They would much rather have something they are going to actually need. A fun idea for a gift is a diaper cake. Instead of getting a bunch of diapers, you create a cake made out of diapers to wow all of the guest. What’s more we have a step-by-step-tutorial for you.
