Some baby shower rules were made to be broken. Such is the case with females-only showers - even though it's not uncommon to see a room full of ladies exchanging gifts these days, more and more couples are opting for co-ed events.
According to the Steuben Courier, the rise of Jack and Jill showers is largely due to the fact that many couples are getting married at older ages, which often means many grooms are more involved during the courting stages.
Additionally, "a joint shower allows people on both sides of the wedding party to mingle before the big day," the news source reports.
Of course, to honor your all-inclusive guest list, a little creativity in the baby shower favors department will go a long way in terms of catering to everyone's individual tastes. Look for gender-neutral gifts such as personalized baby shower candy jars, custom baby shower cookies and personalized baby shower candles.
