Groom Showers: Home Improvement Shower

Bob Horner

this article is part of The Man Registry’s series on groom and couples showers

Overview: Each guest/couple usually brings some type of gadget that can be used to remodel the house. Gifts range from tool sets, to painting equipment, to dry wall tools. Not that your place isn’t already perfect, but depending on who moves in with who, we can guarantee that you’ll either want to repaint the pink walls, or you’ll be asked to put your shot glass collection away in the home-built chest downstairs — permanently.

Themes: The party can be casual, or you can get creative with costumes. If you go with costumes, guests could wear painting gear, Carhartts, or plumbing outfits (just make sure to review your guest list before you go with this idea).

Games: Clothes Pin Game with a Twist – Write out enough name tags for the guest list, but instead of writing the guests’ names, write down the name of a tool. When guests arrive, they’ll be asked to grab a clothespin and choose a name tag that best suits them — or least embarrasses them. For example, write “Tool” on a name tag. The person who takes the name tag must be called by this name all night. If someone is caught calling them by their real name, that person will have to give their clothespin to “Tool.”
