Hello fellow bumpies! I have a question about prizes. My mom is planning my shower with input from my grandmother and aunts. I am the oldest by a long shot so this is the first baby shower anyone in our family has done in 25 years, outside of my mom's cousin's daughter. I am having a co-ed shower bc in put family the women end up telling the men to come later and eat leftovers anyway, plus I really am not into traditional girlie stuff like showers.
My grandmother and mom are going back and forth about door prizes. Apparently my family thinks everyone should leave with a door prize. This seems a little ridiculous to me, especially considering it's co-ed. I talked my mom into doing it by couple, with singles getting their own prize, but it still seems like a lot. We really aren't doing any shower games, just a few optional activities that people can do throughout, along with the typical bbq lawn games and such.
What are your opinions on door prizes? Does everyone need one? We are doing favors but it seems like a lot for a more casual shower.
