There are many details that you need to consider when you are planning a baby shower and naturally the smaller details are important. One of the smaller details are the baby shower favors. The favor is a keepsake not only for the guest but a keepsake for the mother to be as well. With this in mind I put together 3 favor ideas you can use that are sure to delight the new mom and her guests.
When it comes to baby shower favors many people enjoy something with candy. This can range from mints wrapped in coordinating tulle to jelly beans and of course the old standby chocolate. For the do it yourselfer, you could make chocolate lollipops that are shaped like baby items. Molds to make lollipops can be purchased online or at a craft supply store. You can decorate them in colors to match the baby shower theme. The great thing about candy favors is they serve as both a keepsake for the expectant mom, as she will probably want to save one to remember the day, and a treat for all the guests.
Another great idea for baby shower favors is to give a personalized keepsake that can your guests can use after the baby shower. Some ideas along this line include something generic such as a small blue or pink candle in a jar or tin, or you can buy small tea or coffee bags. Regardless of what you select, most can be personalized with a label to commemorate the special day.
One of the best ideas when it comes to baby shower favors is to do something with a frame. You can give a frame that already has a picture of the ultrasound in it or you can give a blank frame with a note card that says: “Coming Soon”. If you choose the later, the mother to be can send a picture of the baby when he or she is born along with her thank you cards for the shower. There are obviously many styles of frames you can choose from such as magnet frames, keychain frames, standard frames, or a combination of all three. As with the candy favors and personalized keepsake suggestions, you can decorate or buy the frames to match the theme of the baby shower.
