It is thought that the modern-day baby shower originated as a “stork shower,” one of many types of showers described by etiquette expert Emily Post in her 1937 edition of Etiquette: The Blue Book of Social Usage. This edition is the first to mention a gift-giving party for expectant mothers and deems them only appropriate to be held in the early afternoon, with only “intimate girl and women friends of the mother invited.”
