@HappyBride827:  We actually just attended a coed shower this weekend! Alcohol was served and the mother to be opened gifts as people arrived, so we didn’t have to sit through opening a million onsies. Best baby shower I’ve been to and I don’t think my husband was bored at all!

@HappyBride827:  I was actually given one two weeks ago! We played fun games and had a TON of food so no one was bored!! My husband attended and a few of our male friends. They all had a good time.

Course, my baby shower was more like a banquet…I come from a huge family and church family so we had like 65 show up at the church hall haha

I had one when I was pregnant with my son. Everyone seemed to have a good time. If I recall correctly there was alcohol and of course lots of food and such and I think there was even a water fight on the front lawn at some point. Essenitally it turned out like a big bbq party which was fine with me. I plan to do it again with the second one….once we manage to get pregnant anyway.

We did, last summer. It was nice, actually. Lots of food, beer, etc. The parents opened gifts together. The only bad part was that itwas 900 degrees outside, so no one wanted to sit outside, but there were so many people inside that it negated the air conditioning.

Yes and it was the best I’ve been to! They even did some cheesy games and the guys got really into it (alcohol helped!) It was hilarious and so fun

The ones I’ve been too didnt have booze. Pretty normal shower really. If my husband was bored he wasn’t any more bored than me!

I’ve been to one too, there was lots of food and alcohol was also provided. It was mostly just a social gathering, and mom & dad to be opened gifts together, no games or anything like that.

I threw a coed baby shower for my sister. Everyone loved it! Tons of family and friends came, we had a lot of food and I set up a candy buffet. The soon to be mommy  and daddy opened their gifts together and everyone got really into the games. I don’t think anyone got bored and it was a great last outing for a great grandmother on the daddies side, she passed on the day after my sister had the baby. We didn’t have alcohol because we were in a public state park, to save money I rented a huge pavilion because her shower was a month after our wedding. The best part about everyone being able to come with their SO was that after lunch and the games most people went over to the beach side and swam, we told them ahead of time to wear their bathing suit if they wanted to enjoy the beach. There was a park next to our pavilion for the kids to play as well. It was pretty much a full day of fun! I even had some time to snap photos so heres a few (it was really really low budget, I think I spent maybe $250 and had about 50 people attend):

I think it depends on the type of shower. Traditional, watch Mom open gifts, play games, eat punch and cake type deals, there is no way my Darling Husband would be interested. A more casual BBQ type atmosphere my Darling Husband would like. But that’s just my $0.02!

We have attended and had a co-ed shower. BBQ and beer. No games. Girls watched me open gifts while the guys caught up. Everyone enjoyed themselves. No regrets here.

This is something I am interested in doing for my baby shower, but I have to get my family on board. They like to keep things traditional, but I think it could be a lot of fun to try something new.
