If you’re throwing a baby shower in 2019, there’s a possibility it may be co-ed. The new trend is taking the pregnancy world by storm, and allows for both happy parents to be there to celebrate the soon-to-be arrival. If you’re in charge of throwing a co-ed shower, here’s where to start:
With twice as many people at the baby shower, you’ll have a lot more mouths to feed. Opt for finger foods and light bites rather than a sit-down meal to avoid higher costs and a longer wait time for food.
Having the guys around means ample room for girl-versus-boy friendly games. Get the competition going with a blindfolded diaper changing race on Cabbage Patch Kids, followed by “diaper pong” using diapers to aim at rather than red cups. End with a spin on a classic wedding game and ask the soon-to-be mom and dad to sit back to back and then read out questions about parenting techniques for them to answer about each other.
The Party Favors
Make sure the fellas don’t feel left out by including them in the baby shower gifts. One creative option is passing out cigars to save until the baby is born, and then all the father’s friends can light up together wherever they are in the world to celebrate.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Ice hotels are becoming increasingly popular as a unique adventure for dedicated travelers. If you've ever wondered what kind of gusto it takes to join the polar bear club by jumping into frigid waters in your speedo, imagine the thrill of spending the night on a bed of ice inside your own igloo wrapped in warm blankets and furs.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees. Here, where eyelashes freeze in mere moments, cars must be kept running continually to avoid a dead battery, and vegetables cannot grow naturally; locals have managed to eke out a quaint, and oddly endearing, existence.
