Even though I am not due until December 23rd...I am already thinking about a babyshower. With my first child my bestfriend (who is my daughter's Godmother) and myself threw a nice jack and jill baby shower. I know there are people who say that you shouldn't throw yourself a baby shower, but I don't agree. I was never the one to let anyone eles pay for things for me. Anyways, I want to celebrate this new baby but, I don't want people to buy gifts. Yes, if it is a boy I will need cloths and what not but I do not want people to think I am throwing a baby shower/party to get them. I also don't like the idea of having a meet the baby party thing because I don't like the idea of a lot of people being around my newborn and in my home when I am trying to rest. So, my question is, how can I word it on the invite that I do not want gifts?? I am not going to do baby shower games or anything, I just want to have a party and celebrate. So, relisticly it wouldn't be a baby shower, it would be a party, but I would still set up decorations like one. Sorry if I am confusing, but I am having a hard time with this! Thanks for the help!

( name) is requesting your presence on (the date) for (whatever food and drink) at (whatever time). this gathering is just that; a simple gathering to see the glow of a radiant mother to be.

(name) has requested no gifts should be brought. the only gift we ask for is to for you to come.

thank you

What about a diaper shower? That is what I had with my second child as I didn't need much, but still wanted to celebrate with my friends! So, everyone brought a pack of diapers and wipes and some brought a couple little things and we had a great time. Just an idea!
