41 Exquisite Baby Shower Favor Ideas


Hosting a baby shower soon? Don’t forget to thank the guests for their attendance with a little remembrance of the occasion. These 41 exquisite baby shower favor ideas should help give you some ideas. Party favors are best when they are personalized and follow the same theme as the baby shower.

A baby shower is a show of support for the soon-to-be mother, where her family and friends help her prepare for her expected one with gifts. The host of the party doesn’t need to reciprocate the value of the gifts back to the guests, so party favors should not be overly expensive. With some imagination and creativity, you can craft or assemble unique and stunning baby shower favors with very little money spent on supplies. See the examples below and think about how you can adapt these ideas to your party and theme.

Cute Baby Shower Favor Ideas with Candles

Candles are decorative and useful. If you enjoy molding your own candles, there’s no limit to what you can design for your shower! Or buy inexpensive candles and wrap them in lace or tulle and handwrite or print a tag to attach to each one. Personalize the tag with the guest’s name and the name of the mother and/or baby. You can also decorate votive holders using gemstones or confetti and gift candles in complete packages.

Your baby shower candle favors can also vary depending on the gender of the soon-to-be-born baby. If there’s going to be a new girl, decorate the candles with pink or yellow footprints and wrap it in silver tulle and ribbon. If there’s going to be a boy, choose blue or gray. Nautical themed candles too can work well for either girl or boy baby showers.

Thoughtful Bath and Pedicure Favors

Here’s a unique and thoughtful idea that can range in price depending on how much you want to lavish your gifts. Since the baby shower is a time to pamper the mother, why not return the favor by sending your lady guests home with their own pampering kit? You can include lotions, soaps, nail polishes, masques, cotton balls, files, and more. Purchase travel sizes or make your own molded soaps for less expensive gifts.

Place your items in a decorative gift bag or Mason jar. Decorate the jar with twine or ribbon. If you want something more classy, use wine glasses or goblets. Personalize the gifts with different lotions or polishes if you know the guests well or if you want to invite them to trade for their favorite scents and colors.

Adorable Owl Candy Box Favors

“Look Whooooooo’s Having a Baby” owl themes are popular for baby showers when the parents have chosen to leave the gender of the child a surprise. You can decorate owls with a mixture of pink and blue feathers or use completely gender neutral colors. If you are using the owl theme, then think owl candy favors.

With a few craft supplies, you can decorate almost anything to look like an owl: plastic balls, paper bags, Mason jars, tea tins, coffee cans, garden pails… Fill them with candy color coordinated to your party and personalize them with a printed or hand-drawn owl card.
