A first time mom-to-be can be overwhelmed by all the goodies she needs to buy for her new-born, but you can help her ease the burden by hosting an Around the Clock themed baby shower. When guests receive their invitations, they are assigned to a particular time of day, they then have to buy an item for the baby related to that time. For example, if a guest receives 8:00 a.m. or “meal time”, the guest may buy bottles or little spoons and bowls. Or, if a guest is assigned to 8:00 p.m. or “bed time”, they may decide to buy blankets or pyjamas.
