The Kardashian household is gearing up for pregnant Kim Kardashian's baby shower, and if older sister Kourtney Kardashian's celebration is anything to go by, we can expect a full-blown extravaganza at this Sunday’s event.
No doubt the excitement will centre on the sex of the baby, which Kim will reveal at the shower in front of her close friends and family. But fans of the glamorous reality TV star will find out at the same time, as her baby shower coincides with the first episode of the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The lucky invitées, including superstars Beyoncé and Fergie, received a musical box with a twirling ballerina that strikingly resembled Kim, and played boyfriend and father to her first child Kanye West's Hey Mama track. Ahead of the July due date, HELLO! Online have sourced the most luxurious gifts that might be presented to Kim and Kanye at the party.

Fans will have to wait for the first episode to discover where the baby shower will be held, but it is likely the party will take place in the grounds of mum Kris Jenner and stepfather Bruce Jenner's Calabasas mansion, following in the footsteps of sister Kourtney.
The eldest of the Kardashian clan celebrated both her son Mason and daughter Penelope’s baby showers in the family home, and at Penelope’s she received "lots of adorable baby girl clothes" and other newborn paraphernalia, including embroidered bibs and teething toys.
"I gave her a Prada diaper bag and the cutest Gucci romper," said Kim.
Although Kim and Kanye are reported to have requested their guests make donations to charity instead of buying presents for their baby, like singer Shakira did last year, it's likely close friends and family will not be able to resist splashing out on the couple's first child.
The Marie Chantal baby come home set would be perfect for the couple's baby who, with fashion-conscious parents, will most likely be kitted out in the latest designer wear. The set includes an adorable cross-designed onesie, a layette jacket and a set of little booties.
Kim clearly looks up to big sister Kourtney and in a touching blog post said, "She is super woman with her ability to effortlessly balance work with taking care of two amazing kids. I am so lucky to have her as my guide and confidant as I too become a mother."
It wouldn’t surprise then, if she followed Kourtney's eco-friendly parenting trend and opted for wooden toys instead of plastic ones, that have less potential to harm children, as Kourtney demonstrated in her weekly web series, Kourtney's Mommy Blog.
Perhaps Kim will take a fancy to the Le Toy Van Lavender House for a baby girl or the Melissa and Doug Folding Medieval Castle for a baby boy?
While Kourtney's baby shower was themed pink in honour of her baby girl, with pink flamingos and candy floss galore, little is known about Kim's theme.
Hosting the party are mum and manager Kris, sisters Kourtney and Khloé, and Shelli Azoff, wife of music mogul Irving Azoff. The dream team have chosen a 'garden chic' dress code, but fans will have to wait until Sunday to see the extravaganza onscreen.
