Have you guys done Diaper Raffles at showers you’ve attended before? We had never heard of this, but after a quick Pinterest search it was clear that it is in fact a thing! A smart one at that.
Of all the shower gifts you could give, it’s arguable that a pack of diapers is always a home run. It’s the one thing we can never seem to get enough of and encouraging guests to bring diapers not only helps the mama-to-be out but takes some of the anxiety of gift shopping away for the guests, too!
I can’t count how many times as a new mom I had to get diapers in a pinch. The last thing I wanted to do was bundle up a newborn to go get more diapers, yet there I was! If you end up with extras of a certain size there are always mamas in need if you ask around.
If you have just a small amount of leftovers you can even start a little collection of diaper sizes in your closet for when you’re entertaining and other parent friends come over! I have a little stack in my guest bathroom and my friends are always grateful when they need a diaper during a play date.
So how does this work? Basically to get it started you send these raffle tickets out with your invite (or at least let the guest know in advance) and then every pack of diapers they bring gives them a raffle ticket and potentially a shower prize! Anything to encourage building our diaper collection, right? All we use for these new babies is Pampers Swaddlers so we always request these when asked! They have that perfect fit without irritating, the famous notch to give the umbilical cord plenty of space. Those perfect stretch tabs to get a snug closure. The mesh liner to pull away any wetness or mess. I also love how the tabs are colored so it makes it easy to find during those bleary middle of the night changes. They’re as soft as any swaddle blanket and they’re the #1 choice for hospitals.
For the prizes you can go as simple or extravagant as you like! Homemade cookies or treats. Bath bombs, your favorite lotion, a fancy beverage, a bargain DVD, pretty prints or hand-lettered quotes. Gift cards you’ve had lying around to restaurants you can’t seem to make it to. The world needed a pretty and modern raffle printable so we’re happy to have that for you today! Designed by our go-to, Collected Design, it’s chic and easy as can be. Print it on colored paper for a bigger pop, stay white and clean, this is sure to go with any motif you’ve got going.
