We know you're seeking a baby shower that's as unique as your journey to parenthood has been. So, let's put away those tired 'pink or blue' banners and give your guests something to talk about - for all the right reasons. Here are 10 unique baby shower themes for the modern parent.

3. The Bookworm Shower
What better way to instill a love of reading than a literature-themed baby shower? Request your guests to bring their favorite childhood book as a gift, decorate with quotes from classic children’s literature, and serve food inspired by famous kid's books. You can start building your baby’s library before they are even born!

4. Around the World Baby Shower
With many of us hailing from multicultural backgrounds or being avid travelers, an Around the World theme can be a delightful way to celebrate the little one's arrival. Think global cuisine, decorations representing different cultures, and a baby-naming contest featuring names from around the globe.

5. The Gender-Neutral Shower
We're modern parents. We understand that pink and blue are not the only colors in the spectrum. Opt for gender-neutral colors like green or yellow and focus on the love and excitement surrounding baby's arrival.

6. The DIY Crafty Shower
Crafty parents, this one's for you! Involve your guests in creating memorable keepsakes for your little one - be it a hand-knitted blanket or a hand-painted mural for the nursery. No artistic talent? No problem. Humorously crafted items often become the most cherished mementos!

7. The Animal Lover’s Shower
Who doesn't love animals? Whether you opt for a jungle, farm, or under-the-sea theme, this is a chance to let your love for all creatures great and small shine. Plus, there's plenty of opportunities for humor - 'party animal' onesies, anyone?

8. The Fitness Fanatic Shower
For those of us who live by the mantra "sweat is just fat crying", why not incorporate fitness into your baby shower? Think baby-themed yoga class or a 'mommy and me' workout. Bonus: This could be a gentle way to hint to Aunt Betsy that, no, you're not carrying twins, and yes, her comment was inappropriate.

9. The Foodie Shower
For parents who believe in the phrase "food is love", a foodie baby shower is a great way to share your passion with your guests. You could have a cook-off, a tasting session, or simply a feast of your favorite foods. To ensure your menu stays as wholesome as can be, check out "Guide to Planning a Baby Shower Menu" from The Bump.

10. The Sci-Fi Shower
For parents who can recite every Star Trek episode by heart or can’t get enough of Doctor Who, why not let your nerd flag fly at your baby shower? Beam your guests into a science fiction universe, complete with galaxy cakes and alien-themed games. May the force be with you as you embark on the greatest adventure yet - parenthood.
