10 Unique Baby Shower Ideas

baby shower themes Planning a baby shower can be an overwhelming task, especially with so many options out there. Instead of settling on “blue,” “pink” or “gender neutral,” it’s always fun to work within a theme.

Some themes are more popular than others — like book showers, “shower” showers and tea parties — but there are plenty of more unique ideas out there. Ideas that you probably haven’t thought of.

Here are 10 unique baby shower themes that we love:
