You might be wondering, what exactly is a dadchelor party? Well, similar to a bachelor party being a man’s “last hurrah” before getting married, a dadchelor party is a soon-to-be dad’s last hurrah before having children. And yes, dadchelor parties absolutely are a thing! They’re actually pretty popular!

The best part of a dadchelor party is that it can happen just about anywhere. In Vegas, in your backyard, at a local bar, hiking in the woods …whatever you like! With less constraints about alcohol or needing to be a space comfortable for a pregnant woman, the possibilities are endless.
Just Another Day With the Bros
After the baby your time is going to be significantly limited. Now is your chance to make the most of the free time you have left with some of your favorite people. Worry less about what
type of food you’ll be serving and worry more about getting chicken wings and a pizza. It’s basically everything you’d have at a football tailgate, except the big game you’re preparing for is the lifelong one of fatherhood.
No Need For Gifts

Plus if you and your partner decide to have both a traditional baby shower in addition to the dadchelor party, most of the practical gifts will probably be given during the shower. Instead of receiving gifts, why not focusing on sending your friends home with some creative party favors? Check these out:
