Baby showers celebrate parents but the favors are a chance to thank friends and family for their love and support. Show your appreciation with small presents ranging from local honey to inspired tea lights. Here are a few ways to shower your party guests with gratitude.
1. Mother to bee
Evermine has three delightful baby shower favor ideas to help make your shower spectacular. First, stash cans of soda in brown paper bags and label with an “About to Pop” sticker for a tongue-in-cheek favor. Your friends with a quirky sense of humor will love these little mementos. Second, package local jars of honey with a sweet “Mother/Father to Bee!” tag for your locavore party-goers. Third, “Baby is Blooming” Seed Packet Favors are sure to be a hit at any spring celebration.
2. Mason mom
These sweet and inexpensive favors from The Country Chic Cottage can be filled with anything from chocolates to miniature soaps and mementos. The toppers are easily customizable with your favorite toy and spray-painted in any color (gold is a popular choice).
3. About to pop
From Project Nursery comes another version of the “About to Pop” idea. These printables from Paula of Frog Prince Paperie are easily customizable to include the mom of the hour’s details. Guests are sure to appreciate the lip balm and sweet balloon image of these favors.
4. Cute and cuddly for moms-to-be
Aden and Anais’s idea makes for a sweet parting favor for little baby shower guests or mamas-in-waiting. The lovey is a cute and cuddly companion for even the smallest newborn and is sure to captivate any toddlers hanging around the party premises.
5. (Baby) shower soap
Package soaps with a inspirational message that will give your shower-goers a chance to achieve baby soft skin. These gentle cleansing bars from Aden and Anais are lightly scented with Australian sandalwood. Combined with a sweet message, these party favors will be a hit!
6. Pinky, papery party favors
7. Sending love and light
Alice & Lois offer up a favor that brings the baby shower message full circle. Guests light these DIY fabric-wrapped votives when they hear Mama is in labor so they can send her “their love and light” during delivery.
8. Watch me grow
Give guests an easy-to-care for succulent as a lasting memento from the baby shower. Tali’s baby shower was packed full of fun party highlights including these delightful plants as the favors. Label small succulents with “Watch Me Grow” tags for an extra special touch.
9. Well-wishes roses
Courtney of Pizzazzerie also sent her guests home with a plant! She had a pink, white and roses shower with the obvious favor being pink roses in a striped pink and white wrapping. Guests were invited to plant their roses at home to spread well-wishes for the new baby.
10. Food stash
Food favors are always a hit. Package up animal crackers or other sweet treats in a Stashed Bag for a snack that comes in a reusable and cute bag. Tie a tag to the side with a thank-you for your guests.
