How Many Diaper Raffle Prizes Should You Give?
You don’t want to have too many diaper raffle prizes at a baby shower since this will reduce the prizes’ specialness and cost you a lot. But, having too few prizes is also unideal and may discourage guests from participating since they won’t have a good chance of winning.
How many prizes you’ll need depends on how many people are coming to your event. We recommend getting 2 to 3 small prizes and one large prize for a small baby shower with 10 to 30 people. For a larger event of 30+ people, we suggest getting 5 or 6 small prizes and one larger prize.
Getting an appropriate number of prizes will make your diaper raffle exciting and fun (without bankrupting your budget).
