Baby Shower Book Invitation Ideas

Throwing a book baby shower and have no idea what to use as your invitation? We think that a book invitation is definitely worth considering. You can write your invitation and party details in pieces of papers, bind them together and voila, you have a book invitation right there. You can even make it more interesting by making sure your “book” contains lots of pictures, babyish ones or something related to having a party!

A simpler yet still very fitting invitation is to send a bookmark invitation. Whether you go for rectangle, round, just words or one with lots of pictures, complete your bookmark with some ribbon to make it perfect.

If you didn’t like any of those and you happen to be a fan of invitations that will also double up as something else, we are fond of recommending cookies invitations, and for this particular theme, an alphabet cookies to be exact. Just drop a bunch of cookies in a bag, put a ribbon around it, attach your party details and you will have an invitation that will not just tell your friends about your shower, it will also make them a lovely afternoon snack!

More Baby Shower Book Theme Game Ideas


Book Relay (Group Activity)

You need tons of books for this one. Since the purpose of the game is to sort the book titles in alphabetical order, your books must have great variation especially in the title, to make this game challenging to play.

We thought of making this a simple challenge of alphabetizing your prepared books, but on second thought, making it a relay race, wherein each person gets one book from one side of the room and arrange things alphabetically on the other, will make this a more active and fun game for everybody.

The group who was able to do their sorting with the least mistakes and in the shortest amount of time definitely deserve some great books as their prize.

Book Hunt (Group Activity)

This is a treasure hunt game with some book-related twist. But since this is a baby shower, things to be hunted should be related to babies, babies and more babies!

Your guests have an option to just roam around the party room or the house to find your hidden treasures. However, if they want to get some clues in the process, then they need to locate the book which contains the right clue.

Since you want those treasures to be found, you can let them draw lots to know the author or book title with the right clue. Clues are tucked in the right book and it should have sufficient description to make it easy for your players to find a particular treasure.

Like in all treasure hunts, the group who was able to locate the most number of treasures will win some cool prizes.

Find Perfect Match (Individual Activity)

We love books which feature cool romantic couples, so if you think your guests also have the same appreciation, then this game is definitely worth adding.

Your guests will be assigned “half” of the pair. Their goal is to find their other half in the shortest amount of time. The couple who finds their other half the fastest surely deserves some romantic prize!

Looking for some cool pairs? Here’s our list of romantic couples. Feel free to add your own:


Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre)
Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler (Gone with the Wind)


Leonie de Saint-Vire and Justin Alastair (These Old Shades)
Venetia Lanyon and Jasper Damerel (Venetia)

Urban Fantasy:

Catherine Crawfield and Bones (Night Huntress series)
Mercedes Thompson and Adam Hauptman (Mercedes Thompson series)
Elena Deveraux and Raphael (Guild Hunter series)


Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen (Twilight)
Amelia Thermopolis and Michael Moscovitz (Princess Diaries)
Meliara Astiar and Vidanric Renselaeus (Crown Duel)

Puzzle Race (Group Activity)

You will need a number of jigsaw puzzles for this game. The number depends on how many guest tables you have.

As the title suggest, this is a race, a race to piece all the jigsaw puzzles together. You can choose jigsaw puzzles with more pieces if you want the game to be more challenging.

The theme of the puzzle will depend on the genre you’ve chosen. This can be space-themed if you’re going for sci-fi , full of hearts or something similar if you’re going for historical romance and so on. Or better yet, we love the idea of custom jigsaw puzzles and we think the mom and dad-to-be wearing their best space costume is a great alternative to say spaceship puzzles. And the cool thing is if you love this idea, you can ask them to wear costumes based on your chosen book theme, and they will be quite cool. They will also make a wonderful gift for some of your guests!


NEW Baby Shower Book Printable Game


We have just added a new game which we think will work as a Baby Shower Book Theme activity!

It is a bingo game but unlike the typical baby shower bingo that features words related to mommies, babies, and baby showers, this one is composed of words related to popular nursery rhymes and songs, which makes it a fitting addition to any baby shower, especially ones that are educational in nature. Which is why we are recommending it on baby shower book theme as well.

Just follow our baby shower book game link if you are interested on what we've been spouting so far. If you still love the idea of traditional baby shower bingo, no worries, since we still have them here.
