At the baby shower I helped plan a few weeks ago I was in charge of buying or making prizes for the shower games. Since we had just as many men as women coming, my big dilemma was what exactly a "game prize" should be. My online search told me that the most appropriate shower prizes include: lotions, scented candles, sachets, and lip gloss. These options clearly wouldn't do ~ I didn't want the guys to bolt, afterall! Then I thought about chocolate, but we were already having chocolate cake and chocolate favors.
In the end I made up a double batch of my homemade salsa (recipe here), which these friends have always enjoyed.
After adding a little cuteness, I felt like I had some very respectable game prizes to offer. No makeup or girlie scents in sight!
I'm happy to report that the guys did not bolt from the party. We had an all-around great time!
