If you have any idea of the history of baby showers, you would know that it dates back over sixty years, to when the new born babies were given a shower. So initially, the purpose of baby shower had been the ‘seeing the newborn’ by friends and relatives of the proud parents. Moreover, in the olden days, the sex of the baby was never known util it was delivered by the expectant woman and thus, people found it difficult to buy appropriate gifts before the birth.
In modern times baby showers are held before the baby is born to extend support to the expecting couple and to gift them with the things that will be needed for the newborn. Now, as the gender of the baby is more commonly known, people can never go wrong in the gifts that they buy. Baby shower are so essential for first time mom, they have a little party for the upcoming new member of the family.
Unique and specially designed baby shower invitations create a good impression on the minds of the guests. The photo baby shower invitations are the best option, since they are more personalized and trendy. If the baby shower is held before the birth of the new born the photos on the card can be:
