If it is more of an intimate baby shower, then each guest can take a few letters and begin shopping from there. For example, for the letter “A” aspirin (baby aspirin, of course) can be purchased as a gift. For the letter “B” booties can be bought and so on down the alphabet. Decorate the place where the baby shower takes place with balloons shaped as letters and cookies in those shapes as well.
