Do you buy the game prizes for the winner to give to the expecting mommy or for them to keep?

i never really liked the idea of people winning the games but their prize had to be given back to the mommy, to me it was something special they get because the mommy gets lots of stuff that day so we bought candles, pictures frames and such for them to keep

All the showers, except for one, the person kept the prize. I co hosted a baby shower and the other host insisted that the gifts be for the mom. I thought it was odd...why play the game? Doesn't the mommy get enough? I hated the whole idea.

I agree with the guests keeping the prizes. We did that at my shower & I think it shows the hostess' graciousness & appreciation towards the guests in celebrating the arrival of a baby.

The point of games at baby showers is for the guests to get to know each other and have some fun. What fun is it if they're given a prize and told "Here's your prize...well...kind of. It's more for the mommy being celebrated." Not much.

I will have a hand in helping plan my baby shower, and I already know that the prizes for the winners of the games will be gifts that the winner will enjoy and be able to take home.

Our prizes will go to the guests.

My mom is doing a raffle where their entry is a small item for the baby (aka me). Like my mom bought a small package of wipes and those disposable washclothes (the wet and use ones) as her entry. Not like she will have herself win.
