    Guests of the baby shower can bring a pack of diapers to the shower. Everyone who brings a pack gets to enter a raffle to win a special prize (like movie tickets, dinner certificate) Usually something nicer than the other prizes. Super awesome for the mommy to be because she gets lots of diapers!

    Yep...the more diapers you bring, the more raffle tickets you get.  Tacky as all hell if you ask me.

    Might sound tacky, but it's super helpful. I had one at my shower and got tons of diapers. We still have size 2 diapers that Lo doesn't fit into yet. It also gave us an opportunity to try different types of diapers without having to purchase tons of brands. I would recommend this to anyone who's having a shower.

    And if this concept is really too tacky for you, you might consider doing a baby book raffle instead to boost your stock of baby books.

    The baby book raffle is the same concept as the Diaper--still tacky.  You're asking people to not only bring a gift, but to purchase and bring something else as well.  Why not just register for nothing but diapers and call it a day?  JMHO.  I've participated in them for the sake of my friends who were having showers, but am opting NOT to have one at my shower.

    And I agree with PP, you don't HAVE to participate, but to me it just seems "gift-grabby."

    I don't think it is tacky at all...as others said, its optional and people go to showers to give gifts, that's kinda the point.
