Is 5 hours too long for a baby shower?

Five hours is an extremely long time for a baby shower! Hopefully you are served a full, sit-down meal during that time! I would stay a few hours (however long you are comfortable staying), then say my goodbyes to both the parents and the host, thanking them for including you. Simply tell them that you have to leave.

How much should I spend on a baby shower?

Expecting parents spend about $100-$250 on a baby shower. But if they want to give gifts, they need to spend more. If they plan to buy them a gift, add in another $25-$50 per guest. Don’t forget about the gift for the new parents as well.
