Free Printable: Book Shower Invite

by Amanda Jane Jones

I’ve actually never been to a book baby shower, but I just love the concept. Books are such treasures! What a wonderful way to start a children’s library. Click below for a free Book Shower Invitation Printable!

Directions: Just print the cover (front + back if you choose) on cover stock, then the interior page on text weight paper. Use the guides to cut and fold. Staple the pages inside the black bar and you’re all set! Fill in the blanks with the appropriate information, then address the outside and mail as is! It’s fun and easy.

    Yes!! We just did this and had people bring books instead of cards, so everyone wrote what they would have put in the card as an inscription instead. It was so lovely and built a whole library full of beautiful sentiments while still allowing them to be able to get some of the necessities off their registry as well.

    It’s too funny that you posted this today! I had never heard of a book shower until this morning when I was invited to one for a friend.

    My friend threw a book shower for my daughter and I about 6 months ago. It was a few months after she was born, so we already had the baby basics that we needed. It was wonderful to see the thought that went into the book gifts. We received everything from small travel books, and bath books, to inspirational books, new releases, award winners, and the classics. It was such a great idea and my daughter loves to be read to so it worked out well!

    A book party is the perfect solution when the parents are not going to find out the gender. It makes for a lot less gender neutral clothes and is a great way to build their library.

    Ah, I love this! I’ve never seen this before and it’s perfect for my sister-in-law who’s pregnant. She’s a poet. So this is perfect, thanks for sharing!

    This is perfect for the two baby showers which I am organizing in the next two months! I am going to use these but perhaps use a different cover to suit the couples. Thanks Amanda!
    p/s: Any chance you will be uploading the revised PDF with the typo error as mentioned in the earlier comment…sorry I am a bit of a grammer nazi here…

    this is adorable, Amanda. I don’t think people still throw showers for a 3rd baby, so maybe I’ll just have to host one instead! :-)

    That is so funny! The same day you post this book shower invite, I posted pictures of the baby book shower invites I made:

    Yours are beautiful!! I love them!

    This is so much better than whatever tacky printable my mother used for my “bring a book” shower! Pinning this for a more fortunate soul in my future. Thanks!
