Baby Showers in Lebanon

Kristen wrote asking about holding a Baby Shower for a Lebanese woman:

A friend of mine living in the United States who is Lebanese is due to have a baby very soon. Would it be appropriate to have a baby shower of some sort? I certainly wouldn’t want to offend her culturally, and am not familiar with Lebanese customs. Could you point me in the right direction.

Thank you,

Kristen Emond

We asked Roula from Lebanon about holding Baby Showers. Roula answered that “a baby shower is quite unknown in Lebanon, but that it’s a nice idea that won’t offend anyone”.

    Baby shower is a great idea, it all depends on how long she has lived in the states, some older Lebanese relatives might be offended if invited. Dont give pre loved baby clothes to your friend because she will be offended.
