How many are on your guest list?  Is the problem that you have too many baskets or not enough games?

If you don’t have enough games, maybe you could give them out as “door prizes?”

Have them add some extra games but ones that won’t take up a lot of time. Give a basket to the lady who’s been married the longest, the one with the anniversary closet to your wedding date, the woman who correctly guesses the number of months you’ve been with your FI, etc. You can also do some wedding trivia and give baskets to the winners, you can also put some type of sticker or ribbon under someones chair and they can be a random winner, etc. Hope those ideas help.

You could also give a basket to the first guest that arrives and maybe have each guest write their name on a peice of paper when they arrive and then with the remaining baskets, draw names.

Are you having more than one shower with a different guest list? I’d split them up. or.. give them to the top 5 winners of each game, the hostesses

If you do many of the games in groups as opposed to individually, then you could give each person in the winning group a basket…which cuts down on how many games or events you need to have.  A raffle sounds good too.

i went to a shower where we had to address envelopes (for the thank you cards) and they went into a bowl, and drew a winner from it-takes just about no time, you could do a couple, and it saves you addressing envelopes after

We handed out raffle tickets for my sisters shower and put a bag in front of each basket and guests dropped their ticket in front of the basket they wanted and then at the end of the shower we drew one ticket from each basket. For some games we handed out multiple tickets for winning. We also handed out 5 tickets just for coming to the shower.

Due to lack of time you can hand out paper and have ppl write their name on it.
