A couple of my friends go together and planned a baby shower for me. The date is set for March 10. I didn't really get a say in anything since they are the ones that were planning it and are completely set on a drop in baby shower. I find those to be a little impersonal since its almost like they only come to bring a gift, get a bite to eat and then leave.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could make it a little more personal? I would just feel better about it.

Well Maybe you could just tell them how much you appreicate the shower, but you would like it to be a bit more personal, and would like if everyone could stay a while

Once people show up just ask them to stay a while if they start to leave, they might feel as though thats what they are supposed to do (leave right away) You could also make personalize gift bags, maybe with a few pieces of candy or something in them but have little tags on them with everyones name. If all else fails and you really dont like the idea of the shower ask them if they can make it more personal, but beware people often take it as someone being ungreatful for being honest about what they want. Good luck hun!
