Ten Best Gender Neutral Baby Shower Ideas


Gender neutral baby shower ideas

Finding gender neutral baby shower ideas can be tough! I was one of the rare unicorns out there that did not want to know at all, for either kid, whether I was having a boy or a girl. I remember my sister-in-law asking me what I had in mind for a theme because it was tough to find themes that weren’t gender-specific.

It can be challenge to find gender neutral baby shower ideas. If you look at Pinterest,  Etsy and Amazon,  it seems like gender-neutral themes are hard to come by.

Well, have no fear. I’ve done the dirty work for you.

There’s actually a lot of great gender-neutral baby shower themes out there; they’re just not in one spot. So, here are some of our favourite gender-neutral ideas to help you with your baby shower planning:

Gender neutral baby shower theme: storybook baby shower

Help stock baby’s library by throwing a storybook baby shower! Not only is the theme perfect for a baby boy or baby girl, but you can ask guests to bring a book instead of a card to build up baby’s library and inspire their love of reading early.

Our storybook invitation is one of our popular gender-neutral invitations. A book request insert can also be purchased to go with it.

I love the idea of attaching a book request insert with the invitation. We have some great options available in our Etsy shop.

And, if you’re looking for some of our favourite kid’s books, we’ve shared our favourites for you to check out.

Gender neutral baby shower theme: twinkle, twinkle, little star

You can’t go wrong with this adorable gender neutral baby shower theme! You can keep the decor as simple or as elaborate as you want, and you can get creative with it by turning it into a nursery rhyme shower theme or celestial theme.

See our baby shower ideas board on Pinterest for some more fun ideas for this particular baby shower theme, and check out our adorable customized printable twinkle little star invitations in our Etsy shop!

Sloth baby shower theme

Move over, llamas! There’s a new adorable animal climbing up the cuteness charts this year.

We love the idea of a sleepy sloth baby shower theme. It keeps the colours gender neutral and doesn’t really get any cuter, in my opinion!

The only downside is that this is a fairly new trend and theme that’s popping up this year, so you might have a bit more difficulty finding decorations to go with it. But if you check out Etsy or Amazon, you’ll be sure to find some cute decoration ideas.

And, we have two different sloth baby shower invites available in our shop for you, so you don’t have to worry about finding the perfect invitation! We customize everything, all you have to do is print, email or text to your guests.

Rainbow baby shower

Could anything be ANY more cheerful than a rainbow baby shower? We absolutely LOVE this idea for a gender neutral baby shower theme because you can literally use every colour of the rainbow!

This makes decorating super easy, plus there’s a lot of adorable rainbow baby shower decorations on Amazon and on Etsy that you can buy. And, of course, we have a variety of rainbow baby shower invites available to send the perfect invitation out to your guests.

Greenery baby shower

One of the most elegant gender neutral shower baby themes, this versatile theme is perfect for a gender neutral theme. Greenery shower themes climbed the ranks last year for both baby showers and baby showers, and there’s no sign of that slowing down any time soon.

We love these elegant printable greenery baby shower invitations here, as well as these coordinating baby shower signs.

Gender neutral baby shower theme: safari or jungle baby shower

One of the cutest baby shower themes around is a safari or jungle baby shower theme. We just love the idea of a bunch of cute little jungle animal decorations posted around while guests eat, mingle and get excited to meet the new little bundle of joy!

Could this jungle baby shower invite be any cuter?

We have several different jungle/safari baby shower theme items in our Etsy shop, including invitations, diaper raffle tickets, and book request inserts. Check out all our fun jungle-themed printables in our Etsy shop.

Adventure Awaits baby shower

Inspire baby’s wanderlust right off the start with an “adventure awaits” themed baby shower! We just absolutely LOVE the idea of a gender-neutral travel themed baby shower.

Our white and gold marble Adventure Awaits invitation is the perfect gender-neutral invite and theme for your baby shower.

There are so many possibilities for this kind of theme – tie it in with a vintage travel theme (decorate with some cute vintage suitcases, old cameras, retro travel posters, etc.)

Or perhaps the parents-to-be love to explore the world and have a bunch of photos from their travels that can be used as decorations, too. Put them in cute photo frames our use a cute photo clothesline to show off the parents’ awesome travel snaps.

Have guests sign a copy of, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss for a great keepsake and guestbook alternative that the new little bundle can enjoy as he or she gets older.

We also have the perfect adventure awaits baby shower invitation available in our Etsy shop, so be sure to check them out.

Fiesta baby shower

It’s time to siesta before the arrival of the new little bundle! This super fun baby shower theme is a great way to celebrate and makes the perfect invitation for a couples baby shower, too.

Fiesta baby shower theme

Decorate with some fun little cacti, lots of bright coloured balloons, streamers and bright coloured Mexican-style tablecloths, or get an all-in-one fiesta decor bundle from Amazon to make this theme a breeze to pull off.

Bunny baby shower

Bunnies may just give the sloth a good run at “the cutest animal ever” title. There’s a lot of cute ways to pull this off for a baby shower. We love a “some bunny new to love” shower theme or a Peter Rabbit theme to pull this baby shower idea together.

Gender neutral baby shower theme: little ray of sunshine baby shower

A little ray of sunshine is about to light everything thing! This is a super cute and easy shower theme to pull off for a gender neutral baby shower. Simply decorate with yellow and white decorations and a cute little “you are my sunshine” decoration and you’re set! (bonus: the you are my sunshine sign could also be reused in baby’s nursery!)

Rubber ducky baby shower

Rub-a-dub-dub, there’s a new baby to love! This gender neutral shower idea is a cute and different theme that we haven’t seen used too often, so it would be unique. You could even ask guests to bring a themed shower gift of baby bath items for the little one, like:
