Here’s some sweet ways to honor your pets at the Baby Shower—they Are a part of the family, after all!

When it was time to plan my sister’s baby shower, I knew we needed to honor their beloved fur babies as well. They’ve been there through thick and thin and are truly a part of the family. I’ve included some simple ways to honor our beloved pets as we make room for baby!

At my sister’s baby shower, I created a personalized iron-on transfer onesie craft station where guests could create their own custom onesie for the baby on the way. I made sure to include some photos of their Goldendoodles as well as some phrases like “My Siblings are Goldendoodles” cut out in the shape of a heart. I outline specifically how I created it on this blog post

Another great way to include your pups (or kittens!) is their very own page in a personalized ABC Coloring Book Activity! Not only is the book customizable with baby’s name or siblings and family pages, but you can also include a page for your beloved family pet. Guests each color a page and sign the bottom of the page so it doubles as a guest book as well. This is such a great activity for young and old! Low-pressure, low-key, and a GREAT memory! It’s also perfect for a long-distance baby shower. Mail the pages out to family and friends and ask them to color, sign, and return to assemble into a book for the baby.

Not only is it a great way to include your pet, but it’s also a great way to remember this season and take a “snapshot” of life before baby. Personalized pages are also perfect for human siblings, too.

Anybody else that's scrambling at the last minute even though we swore it wouldn't happen this year? 🤦‍♀️ If you're like me, you know the reality of keeping it simple and not doing too much but you get that creative bug.

As some parents of little one’s know, it’s sometimes hard (ie. time consuming) to include your small children in helping with a task like wrapping presents. So finding a task for them that occupies them for a bit and makes them feel included is a win-win.

I’ve put together these adorable Christmas Gift Tags that you can personalize and print. Then let your little one color and decorate them while you wrap presents. (Or let’s be honest, while you partially wrap a present, get someone a cup of water, respond to a text message, let the dog in, clean up a spilled drink, and hopefully finish wrapping at least one gift.)

6 unique tags in all! Type the name in or delete the name and write it yourself after printing.
