Baby Shower Party Favors
Baby shower favors aren't usually gifts that you treasure for years. But that's about to change! Here are a few chic ideas for favors that guests won't soon forget!
Make a Donation
Sites like Changing the Present offer options for party favors, showcasing donations that make a difference even in the $1 to $5 range. Print out cards to tell your guests about their part in the good deed.
Ask guests to send a favorite recipe and compile a recipe book (with the help of a copy shop) that the guest of honor and her guests will refer to for many meals to come.
Have Them Bake Something in Their Oven
The boxes will look fantastic at each place setting, but the yumminess is inside: a cupcake mix from Vintage Bakeshop that your guests can whip up at home. Flavors include vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, chocolate mint, ginger spice, and champagne.
Yifat Oren, the event maestro who plans weddings for celebs like Reese Witherspoon, says her favorite shower gift was a bottle of “a great nail polish.” For a shower celebrating a baby girl, you can’t go wrong with OPI’s It’s a Girl.
These tins filled with plantable seeds are adorned with a silk blossom representing the variety inside. Choose from Sweet Pea, Carnation, Viola, Miniature Rose, Blue Stock, or Purple Stock seeds and give your guests a floral memory of your event.
Turn this practical item into a fun favor by placing it in a cute drawstring gift bag and attaching a note from the baby: I can’t wait to meet you! But before you visit, my mom and dad hope that you will slather this all over your hands. Sincerely, Baby
Who Doesn't Like Extra Storage?
A thumb drive might just be the perfect way for the guest of honor to share her hundreds of new baby photos. She can now transfer them to all of her friends’ new portable storage devices!
A How-To Kit
If your guest list is comprised mostly of those of child-bearing age, the Mini Safe Baby Handling Kit will definitely come in handy. Or, at the very least, they’ll have a smidgen of knowledge when they meet the guest of honor’s new arrival.
Every Shower Needs an Umbrella
Even if it is a little tongue-in-cheek, everyone can actually use an umbrella. Especially one that fits inside a purse or car door pocket. And this particular umbrella is available in 10 different colors and designs, so it can also match your party décor.
