Who Can Use This Theme
The showers in this section are for dads — from the food (hearty, but simple), to the invitations (e-mails and text messages are fine), to the gift wrap (yes, you can give an unwrapped gift, just remove the price tag), to the locations, to the guest list (mostly men, although moms can be included, too).
The logistical details focus on interesting activities rather than décor and fussy food presentation, and can be divided up among the guys; even a novice can get behind these showers. The testosterone-friendly ideas in this section will let new dads celebrate with their friends without swaths of pink and blue and those frilly shower games.
“Dads in the Digital Age” is a techie’s dream party. Not only are the gift suggestions digital, but the activity — Geocaching, a GPS treasure hunt — makes the most of the techno-savvy roadsters.
For the DIY (do-it-yourself) dad, an Extreme Nursery Makeover nails the fun together and yields a finished (or near-finished) baby’s room.
Finally, there’s the Tailgate Shower, which teams up a ballgame, a parking lot, and a barbeque for the next generation of sports fans.
Regardless of their interests, these showers offer something for the spectrum of dads-to-be that will celebrate their new role.
