Nautical Baby Shower Invitations A Unisex Shower Choice

One of the things that I like the most about the different baby shower invitations you’ll find online is their diversity and ability to realize what the audience really wants.

This may sound abstract to you, but it really is pretty clear. The average company can’t afford to put out a large variety of designs. In fact they need to stick to the known successes and add new designs as they make themselves known.

Because of this business model, the only one that would work for them, they have to wait until they find a really good idea. And by then it is usually getting a bit stale.

The example that I am going to highlight here are the nautical options. I haven’t found these through any of the big retailers, but they are popular again and again among consumers online. Sites like etsy.com are bubbling, pun intended, with beautiful nautical options that offer a truly unique option for baby shower invitations.

One thing that makes this a really nice option is the unisex nature of the topic. While we have plenty “Ahoy, it’s a boy” we have just as many nautical themes for girls. Plenty of the invites that you’ll find though are genderless, that is to say that they don’t go in either direction and offer a simply beautiful design that is just as fitting for little girls as little boys. These unique templates give expecting parents a fun option for gender reveal parties and showers as well as options for less gender specific affairs.

There are plenty of places to find these online. Some of the shops offer very distinctive designs while others give you the feeling that they looked at what the competition was doing and copied it.

In those events the quality is less than you would expect. But it is nice to see some variation in the overall market for nautical invitations.

When it comes to setting sail for a fun and relaxing afternoon there is hardly a better choice than nautical baby shower invitations. Here are a couple of really exceptional options that we thought you might like as much as we did.


If you are looking for some really good options there are a couple of sites that you may want to look at these are: etsy.com, partycity.com, and orientaltrading.com

Both partycity.com and orientaltrading.com have more than just invitations. They have built a whole line around this lovely theme that can be used to style your party. I especially like the offering that orientaltrading.com has put together.

For those of you who don’t know orientaltrading.com was started by a Japanese emigrant to California before the second World War. They built up a business that imported goods from Japan to the US, but during the war they were forced to close down. Once the war was over he began to rebuilt the remnants of his company and started to specialize in party supplies. Since then they have been the go to place when it comes to getting the best decorations and supplies.

Our family has purchased from them for more than three decades now and they have always been a hit.

There are a number of different ways you can style your invitation. For those of you who would like to capture the nautical theme and not much else for your baby showers, anchors are a good place to start.

While they tell you everything you need to know about the shower itself they don’t overwhelm the design. There are also plenty of options with little boats, mermaids, fish, octopus and other things that live under the sea!

Have fun celebrating your nautical baby shower.
