Baby Shower Favor Ideas
If you're in the process of planning a baby shower,
you're probably up to your ears with issues like the
guest list, menu and party games. Don't forget the favors
-- baby shower favors are an important aspect of any
successful shower! You can purchase your baby shower
favors already assembled, or you can make them yourself.
Here are some tips to help you come up with fantastic
Girl or Boy? If you know the gender of the baby,
then by all means, use it when planning your favors. Pink
for girls and blue for boys is always a great,
traditional choice. However if you don't know the baby's
gender, soft tones like yellow and seafoam can work, too.
Or, you could use white accented with both blue and pink.
Candy is always a good idea for baby shower
favors. After all, who doesn't like chocolate? You can
fill miniature baby bottles with M & M's or other small,
colorful candies. You can also use squares of tulle to
wrap Hershey's kisses or other candies in, then secure
with a pretty ribbon in a coordinating shade.
Bubble Bath. Another cute idea is miniature
bottles of bubble bath. You can tie a pink or blue ribbon
around the neck of each bottle for decoration. Candles in
either pink or blue can also be a nice choice when it
comes to shower favors. These types of favors are little
luxuries that any woman can appreciate!
Blowing Bubbles. On the subject of bubbles, how
about tiny bottles of blowing bubbles like the ones
commonly given out as wedding favors? This is a good idea
because shower guests that have small children at home
will have something to bring back to their little ones.
Scented sachets also make great baby shower favor
ideas. To make these yourself, simply get a pretty fabric
like silk or tulle, some ribbon, and some potpourri.
Simply tie the potpourri up in the fabric using the
ribbon. For extra adornment, you can hot glue some little
flowers on and add a little ribbon loop that can be used
as a hanger.
Disposable Cameras. One easy idea for shower
favors are cheap disposable cameras. By handing one of
these to each guest as they arrive, everyone can capture
their own memories of the shower!
These are just a few ideas for baby shower favors you can
use. If you want more ideas, go online and take a look at
all the baby shower favors offered on the Internet.
You're sure to find the perfect favors for your shower!
