My FMIL asked me for theme ideas for a couple’s shower that friends of her and FFIL will be throwing for us. This kind of came out of left field because we weren’t really expecting a shower form this side, let alone a couple’s shower. The group that would be throwing it normally has a theme that they buy gifts around.
They have done “stock your wine cellar” before for a different couple, but unfortunatly, it does not really work for us. My FI does not go to wine as his prefered drink, and I drink infrequently at best.
The ideas that I had so far are;
Famous couples; books and movies based on famous couples. We are readers and love classic movies.
Date night; stuff to use for dates in the future.

Date Night has a lot more gift ideas that go with it. Would be easier for your guests.

I like the date night idea for the gifts part. That would be so nice to get things for dates that we wouldn’t have to pay for and they might be things we never would have done otherwise. 🙂 We just had a couples shower in January and my family chose a lumberjack theme. It sounded weird at first—but they did SUCH a great job. We used lots a miniture christmas trees, I made smores cupcakes, we had trail mix, lanterns, plaid fabric, an ax. It was a hit with our guests because it was so different. The only problem with it is it’s hard to base gifts around the theme. I just wanted to throw another theme out there for you!
