If you’re due this winter, and happen to be a big fan of the holiday season, consider making Christmas the theme of your baby shower. Use these Christmas baby shower ideas to capture the spirit of the holidays with your baby shower invitations, decorations, favors, and entertainment.
Christmas Baby Shower Ideas: Invitations
Your invitations will give guests the first glimpse of your celebration so you will want to make sure they not only share the time, place, and details of your baby shower, but also relay your unique Christmas theme.
The best way to ensure your baby shower invitations do all of this is to create them yourself on a custom card and invitation website, like PurpleTrail.com or InviteShop.com for cheap baby shower invitations.
You can either start with one of their adorable Christmas baby shower invitation templates and personalize it to your liking or you can design your very own Christmas baby shower invitations from scratch with their invitation maker.
Try selecting a palette to coordinate your invitations and decorations to. It’s best to keep it simple with three colors max. You can also choose a theme to include in your invitations and decorations, like “Baby, it’s cold outside” or “Santa, baby” or something else that is clever and related to winter or the holidays.
In addition to the colors, fonts, and embellishments you use on your Christmas baby shower invitations, you can also emphasize your shower theme with cute Christmas wording. Here are a few Christmas baby shower invitation wording ideas you can use to highlight your theme and capture your guests’ attention.
Baby, it’s cold outside!

Christmas Baby Shower Ideas: Decorations
Finding decorations for your Christmas baby shower should be easy with there being so many holiday decorations to choose from. Try coordinating your Christmas baby shower decorations with your palette and theme.
Cover tables with festive tablecloths. Create frosted candle holders out of small jars, Mod Podge, and epsom salts. Cover the jars with Mod Podge and then simply roll them in the epson salts. Let the jars dry. Add a candle and use them as table centerpieces for your Christmas baby shower.
You can also make cute garland out of tiny baby booties, stockings, or socks by attaching them to a piece of string with small clothes pins. This is a great Christmas baby shower idea because it’s not only easy to make, but also the mommy-to-be can use the socks for her baby later.
Cover white or colored strings of lights with fake snow batting and stretch them across the ceiling of your venue. The fake snow batting will light up and cast a soft, inviting glow upon your venue.
Fill red or clear glass vases with white flowers, such as mums, carnations, and baby breath. Place the fresh flowers throughout your venue. Check out this Christmas Baby Shower Ideas Pinterest board for more decoration ideas and inspiration.
Christmas Baby Shower Ideas: Food
Your food should not only taste good, but also add to your Christmas theme. Choose foods that would likely be found at a Christmas party. Hot cocoa, Christmas cookies, and anything that will add festive color and flavor to your spread, like these red cranberry sparkler mocktails.
Set up a hot cocoa bar filled with tasty toppings, like mini marshmallows, dark chocolate chips, peppermint pieces, and caramel bites. Also prepare healthy snacks for guests, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, and leafy greens can all be used to add color and nutritional value to your spread.
Christmas Baby Shower Ideas: Games
Here are a few simple, fun, and unique baby shower games you can play at your Christmas baby shower.
Santa Baby Match-Up
Get in touch with guests ahead of time and ask if you can have a copy of one their baby photos — preferably one’s taken around the holidays. After collecting a photo from each guest, add the photos to a board.
Label each photo with a letter. Then, give guests a sheet of paper with a list of all of your guests’ names and have them match the name to the baby photo. Whoever matches the most correctly wins a small prize.
Santa Baby Trivia
Everyone loves trivia. Try organizing a list of Christmas and baby related trivia questions and answers. Check out this Unique Baby Shower Games post for a list of baby trivia as well as more game ideas. Mix in some fun Holiday trivia to add to your Christmas theme.
Christmas Baby Shower Ideas: Favors
Personalize a mug for each guest on PurpleTrail.com — where you can personalize mugs with photos, custom wording, and your choice of colors, fonts, and embellishments. Design a mug that suits your baby shower’s Christmas theme. Place the personalized mug on each guest’s table. Tuck a hot cocoa packet into each mug.
