BABY SHOWER FOR MEN
showers for men are becoming more popular lately, even though the
original tradition was for the girls to get together for a shower. When
having an all dude party, here are some suggestions in having a great
Have the guys get together for a Beer and
Diaper party. When the women are having the shower, the father-to-be can
host a bbq at his house and he can provide the hot dogs and the baby
shower guests can bring their own beverages and diapers. It is nice
because they usually receive enough diapers to last about 6 months!
Have the baby shower party at a sports
bar, favorite restaurant, go bowling, beach day, to your favorite golf
course, or at a favorite concert. You don't have to be traditional to
have a baby shower, have some fun and live it up while the father-to-be
is still getting at least some sleep before the little one comes.
Play some baby shower guy games. Our
favorites are the following:
Fill diapers up with apple juice and melted chocolate and place on
some baby dolls. Get new diapers and have the guys race to clean the
baby's wet/soiled diaper and then replace with a new one. You will get
loads of laughs out of this one.
Fill up different diapers with melted chocolate from 6 of your
favorite candy bars. Have each guy smell each diaper and guess which
chocolate is in each. Have them write down their answers and see who
wins. You can be real gross and have them taste each one!
Guys love to bet so have different wagers start including the
What day will the baby be born?
What time will the baby be born?
How many pounds will the baby weigh?
For those of you guys who enjoy a competition, purchase two baby/toddler
toys that need to be assembled (e.g., a riding toy, bicycle, doll house)
supply a bunch of different tools or even better if you have them use a
butter knife instead of a screwdriver (sure to get a lot of laughs when
they look and look for the flat head screwdriver, and realize there
isn't one). Place baby shower guests into two different teams and see
how fast they can complete the assembly. The losing team has to buy the
Get a poker table (or make one) and have the guys who want to play bring
a package of diapers and $10 each as the buy in for the game. The winner
gets to keep the money and the Daddy gets all the diapers! This is an
excellent daddy to be baby shower game for the guys! Thanks to Amanda
for this great game! This also makes a great co-ed

Out for a night of drinking and hazing.
Some guys like to have a party for anything. Take the father-to-be out
like he was having a
and dress him up as a little baby. Have all the guys with baby pacifier
shirts that say "Whose your daddy". This will be the last time the
father-to-be will be out with his friends that late when the new ones
When playing baby shower games, baby
shower booby prizes are always a lot of fun. Instead of only awarding
prizes to the winners, it would be fun to prank the loser. The loser can
choose from any of the following:
1) Wear an adult disposable diaper
for 30 minutes (or towel held up by rubber bands on the sides)
2) Receive a little girl or little boy hairdo that must be worn for
the remainder of the shower
3) Keep a pacifier in their mouth for 15 full minutes
4) Wear a bib for the remainder of the shower
5) Drink a bottle of any beverage until it is empty
6) Eat a jar of baby food
These baby shower gags can also be played
on the winner to be funny. Thanks to baby shower visitor Becky A. for
some fun ideas!
