Having a baby shower is a really fun and special way to celebrate an amazing time in your life - it's a chance to get together with your girlfriends, have a good giggle and most importantly - share in the excitement of your impending arrival. In our busy lives, it's a rare opportunitiy to take a break from all the hustle and bustle and honour this milestone, which for most of us only comes around a few times! Here are a few of our favourite ideas for a baby shower, including games, activities and ways to create some lovely keepsakes:
