12 Festive Ideas for Your Winter Baby Shower

Winter can sometimes feel a little limiting when it comes to planning a baby shower. It’s tough to compete with the holiday season and the slow-goings of the new year’s first months. Not to mention weather can be an issue in many parts of the country, as can be temperatures that force an indoor-only event.

But there is something so special about a winter pregnancy — about being pregnant for the holidays, welcoming the year that brings you to motherhood, watching the snow fall, and being “trapped” at home with your loved ones. For so many of these reasons, winter is an overall nostalgic time and a fabulous season for your baby shower.

Make it absolutely perfect with these 12 festive ideas! And, of course, always set the tone of your shower with the perfect invite, like one of these winter baby shower invitations from Etsy.
