Baby showers are a time to celebrate the miracle of life with the parents-to-be. Show them how excited you are for their precious little one to arrive by creating these adorable baby-themed cookies.
Decorating onesies is a sacred activity of baby shower rituals. It’s creative and interactive; it lets guests show their personalities; it’s very practical for the mother-to-be. For a more delicious version of this game, try decorating onesie-shaped cookies instead.
It isn’t just kids who enjoy getting new toys; parents-to-be love them too. Put a spin on classic gifts by bringing toy and accessory shaped cookies. Alphabet blocks, pacifiers, bibs, rattles, and baby bottles are all popular and cute shapes to decorate and eat.
Do you remember how much you loved your first stuffed animal? Guests will be sure to feel the same love for your animal shaped cookies. Jungle beasts, ocean dwellers, and woodland creatures in fun cartoon themes are perfect to add a little playfulness to any baby shower dessert table.
Pink and Blue
You can’t go wrong with a baby shower cookie if you color it blue or pink. For parties with a big gender reveal, bring cookies of both colors. Before the couple reveals what they’re having, tell everyone to grab a cookie of the color they guess. It’s a good way to make sure you aren’t taking home leftovers.
It’s a baby shower, so making cookies shaped like babies makes perfect sense. Bring decorated baby faces or opt for adorable foot shaped cookies. Check your local craft store for a variety of baby-themed cookie cutter shapes.
If you know that your best efforts at these cookies may result in a social media post with the ironic hashtag #nailedit, you can order the perfect cookie box with us.

Or make an impression with the Footprint Cookie Box which comes in multiple sizes and offers up to 11 different cookies. No matter what you choose, there’s no better way to celebrate a new life than with cookies.
