I'm sorry for those who love showers, I just hate them... or at least all the ones I've been forced to attend over the years. We're doing a bit of a unique shower set up with having a family one on one day and a few weeks later a friend one. The friend one I got.. it's the family one I'm struggling with as my husband's mother is making comments of "You have to open gifts" or offering additional traditional style ideas that make me gag a bit. Also recommended was an open gift party however the budgets are all over the place of the attendees and I don't want to make someone feel awkward that they cannot spend a lot on our tyke which is totally cool by us. I'm happy to compromise but looking for ideas on what the heck to do with the family shower to pass the time if we don't open gifts or do the cheesy games? Please help!!
