"The Baby Shower Hostess Survival Guide saved me a ton of money & helped me plan my niece's baby shower in 1 day!" Thank you! - Alana


Show you care with a nice baby shower gift for dad! A new baby is just as exciting and important to the dad-to-be as it is the new mom! Many times the father gets overlooked (sad face.) A bond between a dad and his child is special and unique. Words can't really explain it, it really is something sweet.

Poor old dad-to-be often gets left out during the excitement of having a baby.

How to Throw A "Dad-Themed Baby Shower"

Searching for a new twist on the traditional baby shower theme?

Jazz it up by throwing a baby shower for the Father-to-be!

Between friends, family, neighbors and co-workers, the average new mom usually has between 1-2 baby showers thrown for her.

So why not make one of them a "Daddy-To-Be-Shower"?

This type of baby shower is usually hosted by the new dad's best friend or best friend's wife. It can be guys only, or you can make it a couples shower!

Have fun with it! It's his last hoorah before becoming a father! It gives the dad-to-be time to spend with his buddies before his life becomes too busy.

  • Since the mom-to-be will probably be given a shower as well, you can make this one a "gag gift" shower where guests bring giant diapers, over-sized pacifiers (found at pet stores - used as dog toys), diaper rash ointment, gas relief drops, baby wipes, and a "Daddie Doodie Apron" or a "Survival Tool Belt."
  • For fun, you can fill baby bottles with beer for his friends to enjoy. We have a great game to go with this idea!
  • Visit our baby shower games page for some crazy game ideas!
  • Turn on a baseball, football, or basketball game, serve some pretzels and popcorn, have a BBQ and relax!
  • Check out our popular baby shower appetizer recipes!
  • Make some cool football cupcakes, a cake, or whip up a batch of baby shower cookies!
  • Search our cake gallery for hundreds of cool cakes!

  • Write on the baby shower invitations that it is a "Daddy Do" shower where guests bring something that the new dad can do with his child. Some example are books, toys, games, puzzles, footballs, baby golf clubs, etc.
  • Have each guest bring a package of diapers and put their name in a hat as they come in with them. At the end of the shower, draw a name out of the hat. The winner gets a cool prize! Print out our "Diaper Raffle Cards" here
