Forget diaper warmers, baby swings and whatever else might have been on the registry. The baby shower fellow newswomen threw for Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie on June 30 was all about her favorite thing: books.
With an “Extra! Extra! Read All About It” vintage newspaper theme, the noontime fête celebrated the mom-to-be’s love of reading as some two dozen guests — Today pals including Natalie Morales, Tamron Hall, Jenna Bush Hager, Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, in addition to Amy Robach, Gayle King, Deborah Roberts and others from competing networks — piled a bookshelf in N.Y.C.’s The Glass Houses party space with their favorite children’s books. Each woman brought one book for Guthrie’s baby with husband Mike Feldman and a second to be donated to the charity Baby Buggy for a child in need.
“A lot of people inscribed the books with notes to the baby that were really cute,” Guthrie, 42, told PEOPLE. “It was really personal. I love that.”
