Baby Showers are an increasing trend, that is becoming more and more popular following on from the American tradition. They are the celebration of a soon to be arrival of a new baby. The mother to be is “showered” with gifts for herself and the baby as well. A baby shower is traditionally organised by a close friend and is normally held 4-8 weeks before the due date.
Showers were traditionally held for the first baby and only women were invited – both these traditions are slowly been broken. Showers for the mum and dad are growing and I can imagine these really beginning to take off.
