Having a diaper raffle at the shower is a cool way of getting some much needed diapers for the mom-to-be and is a fun door prize game.
Diapers are expensive and the average new born will have to be changed for no less than 6 times for the day. If you do the math then whew...that's a lot of diapers. Can you imagine if mom is expecting more than one baby such as twins, She is gonna need all the diapers she can get.
If you are hosting the shower and plan to have a baby shower diaper
raffle then be sure to let guests know about it before hand by adding
the information to the shower invitation. This way guests who want to
participate will take a package of diapers and those who don't want to
participate simple don't take any along.
If you do not include it on the shower invitation and just mention it to a few persons then you run the risk of offending those persons who may feel left out and may even reduce the potential number of diapers mommy would get.
You may or may not include the prize on offer in the invitation.
Here are a few diaper raffle wording you can include in your invitation to entice guests to want to play:
Bring a pack of diapers to help the mom to beFor a chance to enter a raffle to win a really great prize, you'll see
For a chance to win a great prizeJust bring a diaper any sizeYou won't disappoint, for sure you'll be surprised
Raffle prizes should be worth the effort for each participant to enter. Because you are asking persons to fork out extra in addition to their gift. A $30 to $50 budget should be able to get your guests an amazing grand prize.
Here are some prize ideas for your baby shower raffle:
Small appliance or gadget
Spa treatment or day pass to spa
Tickets to a game
Look out for gift baskets on specials, that way you can get it at a deal and may even have funds left over to buy consolationprizes for a runner up or third place winner.
