Planning a Couple's Baby Shower - Choosing Baby Shower Favors

OK ladies, so you are planning a couple’s baby shower and are perplexed about what kind of baby shower favors to give your guests. Let’s face it, baby shower favors are designed with women in mind. They are cute and feminine!

So what do you give the guys that are attending a coed baby shower? There are not too many men that are into candles or bath confetti, and they won't go gaga over those adorable baby bottles filled with candy.

Well, let’s think about what guys enjoy -

  • Food - What guy doesn’t like to eat? You know the old saying: The way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach. Cookies or candy are always a sure bet. Wrap them in a piece of tulle tied with a ribbon or an organza bag. You could also use Chinese style take-out boxes or neutral color favor boxes. Bubble gum cigars are also another good choice.

  • Sports themed key chains or t-shirts.

  • Movie rental gift certificates or lottery tickets.

If you want to give the ladies at the party something feminine, there is no reason why you can’t buy separate baby shower favors for them.

Just remember when choosing the favors for a coed baby shower to keep them neutral for the men.

Join us Friday for tips on choosing food for a couple's baby shower.
