But first, you may be asking yourself…
What Kind of Prizes Do You Give for Baby Shower Games?
Really you can have any type of prize you want.
It is your baby shower (or whomever you are throwing it for).
And it’s also your money you’ll be spending on it.
So with that in mind, ideally you’ll want prizes that aren’t overly priced, too big, and something that your guests will actually like.
Now onto the awesome prizes!
Gifts for Baby Shower Games
Gift Basket Prize Ideas for Baby Shower
For this type of gift basket, you could take a popcorn bucket and fill it with movie items.
Some things you could put in it are:
This prize would make for a great night in.
Mani-Pedi in a Jar
This is a super easy prize you could give to guests.
All you need is a jar, any items you want to use to decorate it, and some nail supplies.
Some stuff you could put in your jar are:
A fun prize you can give is a spa basket.
Inside you can give them various items they can use to pamper themselves.
Some spa items to consider are:
With this gift basket, you could go a couple of ways with it.
You can get a basket and put a bottle of wine in it with one or two wine glasses.
Or you could buy one wine glass and fill that with mini bottles of wine.
Like with the wine basket you can do a couple of things with this coffee prize.
You can buy a basket and fill it with things such as:
Or you can use the mug as the basket and fill that with coffee items.
With the cooking basket, you can use a pot, mixing bowl, or just a regular basket and fill it with things they can cook with like spices and a variety of cooking utensils.
Other things you could put in it are:
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- Cooking Thermometer
Just any small things that relate to cooking.
Goodie-Filled Baby Bottle
Another type of gift basket you could try creating is a goodie-filled baby bottle.
I mean, it IS a baby shower, so why not have a baby-themed prize?
You can buy a baby bottle and fill it with different types of small items, candy, or money if you want.
Really just anything you think you could fit inside the baby bottle.
Unique Baby Shower Game Prizes
A fun prize you could give guests is a small succulent plant.
They’re cute, look nice in a home, and are easy to take care of!
Or you could even buy a small pot, and fill it with dirt and flower seeds (and probably some care instructions too).
Hot Sauce Pack
One gift you don’t hear that often is a hot sauce pack.
If your guests like trying new things (or like their food spicy) this could be a great prize to give out!
I don’t know about you but we still use coozys around here.
And one way you can make them more unique is by customizing them.
You can put something like the name of your baby shower theme or quote on it.
Or you could put “*Baby’s Name* Baby Shower” or “*Your Name* & *Partner’s Name* Baby Shower.
Cookie Mix in a Jar
Give your guests something yummy they can take home!
This is a pretty simple prize you can create.
All you’ll need is:
- A glass jar
- The recipe with instructions
- And the dry cookie ingredients inside the jar
I would also be sure that you label the jar with the name of the cookie.
Something unique to give as a prize is tumbled stones.
Rocks and crystals are becoming more and more popular and if this is something that already interests you, why not give some to your guests?
Teddy Bear with a Flower
A sweet gift you can give people is a teddy bear.
And with that teddy bear… a flower!
This a sweet and beautiful prize that I’m sure people would love.
Baby Shower Theme Inspired Gift
What kind of theme are you having?
Is it a superhero theme?
Ready to pop?
Or a woodland nature theme?
Whatever it is, you could try coming up with a prize that goes with the theme of your baby shower.
Cheap Baby Shower Prizes
A simple and inexpensive prize you could give people is lip balm.
This item is easy to find and you can get them in fun flavors.
Candles are another small and easy gift that doesn’t cost a lot.
And they come in a variety of colors and scents!
Lotion is another item that can be fairly inexpensive.
And you can choose from lots of fun scents that you think your guests might like!
This one is a great idea if you know that many of the people attending like coffee.
The prize can either be a mini bag of coffee or you could even decorate small jars and fill it with ground coffee beans.
A nice self-care gift you can give your guests is a sugar scrub.
With this one, you could either buy or make it yourself.
You’d just need to buy some mini jars to put them in for your winners!
Notepad and Pen
A small notepad along with a pen could make for a nice prize.
I use notebooks ALL THE TIME.
So I’m sure this gift will get a lot of use.
Help your winners have a nice relaxing bath with some bath salts.
These can be a great addition to your basket of prizes!
You can buy premade ones but I think it’d be cheaper to just make some yourself.
You’d just need to look up a recipe for it.
Single Item Tied with Ribbon
A great cheap idea for a baby shower prize is to buy 1 or 2 items and tie a pretty ribbon around it!
There are TONS of small items you could do this with.
Some things you could make into a small and inexpensive prize are:
- Nail Polish
- Nail File
- Lip Gloss
- Fuzzy Socks
- Hair Accessories
Gender-Neutral Gifts for Baby Shower Games
Gift cards are a great option to give to your baby shower game winners!
- You can choose any store (which is great if you have men and women there)
- You can put any amount of cash you want on it
- Everybody LOVES gift cards
Gift cards aren’t the most creative option but they’re easy and how can someone NOT like some shopping money?
Bottle of Wine
If you have some wine lovers coming to your shower a nice prize you could have is a bottle of wine.
Now depending on what kind of wine you choose to buy this can be a very expensive gift or a fairly priced one.
Whoever you are you’re sure to have a picture or two laying around.
A picture frame can be a nice gift that your guests can keep forever!
I LOVE coffee mugs.
Plus they’re a great gender-neutral prize that everyone should love!
They’re so many styles and ones with funny sayings or inspirational quotes.
Another great gift for a co-ed baby shower is cooking gear.
And there are so many you could choose from.
It could be a simple pot, a spatula, measuring cups, etc.
Plus cooking gear comes in a variety of prices.
Everyone loves food.
So if you’re into baking you could wipe up something yummy and give them to guests.
Even if you just wanna buy some premade baked goods, this could be a very simple and delicious prize everyone can enjoy.
Lottery Scratch-Off Tickets
A nice small gift you could give your winners is scratch-off tickets.
These are great to give out at a coed baby shower!
Give your winners ANOTHER chance to win.
A photo album is a great way to save photos and look back on precious memories.
I think your guests would appreciate a long-lasting gift that they can keep forever.
And photo albums come in many sizes and colors!
How Many Prizes Should Be At a Baby Shower?
You’ll want to have at least one prize for each game you plan on playing at your baby shower.
So if you plan on doing 4 games that’s 4 winners so your total number of gifts is 4.
But if you want to have the winner get a big prize and have a smaller prize for the runner-ups, you’ll have to account for those as well.
What Prizes Should I Give for a Virtual Baby Shower?
Having a virtual baby shower can make giving prizes a little tricky.
But you can easily give your guests fun gifts that they can use!
You can give virtual/online gifts or if you’re okay with it or send them their prize through the mail.
It’s really up to you.
Some ideas for prizes for your virtual baby shower are:
- eGifts Cards- This is basically a virtual gift card instead of receiving a physical one. You can send them to prize winners through email or text. You can buy these Amazon eGift cards here.
- Flowers- You can gift flowers to your guests with services like 1-800-FLOWERS. All you’ll need is their address!
- Fruit Basket- A fun fruit basket could be another fun one to send to guests. You can find one to send as a prize here.
- Video Streaming- Did you know that you can gift people a streaming service? With some video streaming services, you can actually gift them a gift card for them to use toward a subscription. You can buy a Netflix gift card here.
- Music Streaming- Certain music streaming services will let you buy a gift card so that you can gift them to people. You can buy a physical gift card for Spotify here.
- Audible Membership- If you have guests who love books then maybe a unique gift you could give is an audiobook membership. You can gift them an audible membership here.

What’s the point of baby shower prizes without some games?!
And when you plan a baby shower you want to make sure that your party guests have some fun games to play!
Below are a couple of fun and easy game ideas you can play at your baby shower:
