tealight lollipop baby favor

My daughters theme is "A baby is blooming" so I wanted a unique shower favor to go with this theme. It is a tea light flower lollipop favor.

Items I used for this are:
Popsicle sticks (large)
Tea light candles
Paper flowers I made from card stock
Glue stick
double sided tape

I printed and cut out my flowers, glued them to the popsicle sticks, let them dry, using double sided tape I taped the tea light candles to the center of the flower pressing down, and as I pressed down I got the edges of the flower petals and folded them upward slightly. I topped them off with a cello wrap, ribbon, baby pacifier and tag with a poem.

My favorite saying to use for baby shower favors is...

From (name of mom-to-be)'s shower to yours!

It's really simple and can be used for bath gel, bath bubbles and homemade soaps.

jelly bean favor tins

My sister had already chosen the baby's name Madisson Ranae before the party, so I decided to do cute favors to match the name. We purchased round tins and some pink and brown stripe stickers to put on them. On the top we had them do the baby's initial- M.

It turned out really elegant. We bought it online at www.sophiesfavors.com. We filled it with pink jellybeans. You can put anything in them once the jellybeans are gone.

bath salts in a doily baby favor

For my upcoming baby shower we filled little clear Ziploc bags (about 2x3 jewelry bags) with pink & white scented bath salts from Dollar Tree and wrapped them with a doily and a sticker. The guests can use them as the bath salts or place them in a drawer or car for the sweet smelling aroma. Very Cheap to make! ;)

For a different look, instead of the sticker you could glue a plastic baby pin to make it look like a diaper.

hersheys kisses with napkin diaper favor

Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Favor: I simply folded pink napkins to resemble diapers, tucked in a couple of Hershey Kisses and a Mint Pacifier (made with two lifesaver mints and a jellybean - 'glued' together with white chocolate) and added a tag that said: "The Mr. and Mrs. shared some kisses and created a new little Misses". I also made diaper shirts from larger white napkins and tucked games inside with the fork at each place setting.

I know that favors are a way of saying thank you to your guests but how many people actually use or save the items given as favors? Not me!

In lieu of favors my daughter and I have decided to buy small baby items such as socks, pacifiers, lotions etc. and donate them to a local pregnancy center in honor of our guests. Locations can be found in your local phone book.

Nancy from New York

For my daughter's baby shower, we put together seed packet favors for the guests. We took flower and garden seeds and created a cover to slip over it.

The cover had a cute saying on it...

Growing a Miracle!

Then we had the name and the date of the baby shower on it. The guests loved it and it was very inexpensive to make.

For my cousin's baby shower, they used a mod mom theme for the party. For the favors, they gave us miniature baby bottles with pink jelly beans in them. They had cute pink and chocolate polka dot ribbon on them and a mod mom themed tag that had the shower info on them.

They were so cute!

baby carriage bag shower favors

For our upcoming shower I bought white boxes from Dollar Tree (Pkg. of 12) and used cute carriage die cuts and baby heads that I cut out and decorated w/ a small bow and drew a face in. And on the back I printed on card stock our thank you and glued a plastic baby pin on top. The box will be filled w/ pink and yellow Easter grass and candy.

I like to use mini sparkling ciders for my favors! They are so cute and I just tie a bow with a cute baby charm around the neck of the bottle. I know there not going to get thrown away when people go home and there a big hit, and look very elegant.

boxed candy baby bootie favors

I used a candy mold and candy wafers to make cute and tasty pink baby booties favors. The box was actually a valentine inspired box, but complimented the booties well.

Melanie from Los Angeles, California

For my daughter's baby shower, I made a spoonful of kisses for the baby shower favors. They turned out really cute. To make this baby shower favor, I used a package of clear plastic spoons and a package of Hershey kisses. We placed a few kisses in each spoon and covered it with a tulle circle (we used pink for a baby girl). Then we secured it in place with a ribbon. I made cute tags to go on it with the baby shower information on it. Here is the poem I used on the tags.

A spoonful of kisses
and lots of love
For sharing in our gift from above.

It turned out to be an inexpensive favor and the guests really thought the poem was cute.

You could also use "confetti" (or candy coated almonds) in either pink or blue or nursery colors, and alter the poem slightly.

tiffany blue baby shower favors

We hosted a baby shower in December for my best friend Nicole. She loves the tiffany blue and brown colors, so we built the baby shower around it. We had mod mom invitations made in the tiffany blue and brown and accessorized with everything we could find in blue and brown. For the baby shower favors, we purchased tiffany blue bags and placed turquoise jelly beans in brown tulle inside the bags. On the front we had a round tag that said,

"There is nothing like a baby boy, To fill your heart and give you joy."

The baby shower turned out beautifully. We used lots of ideas from your website. Thank you so much!

I think a great favor idea would be single servings of popped popcorn with a tag that says,"Ready to Pop!" Afterall, who doesn't like popcorn?!

blue bucket with pastel candies for baby shower favor

I hosted a gender neutral baby shower last year. It was a coed baby shower so we had friends of both parents at the shower. I used lots of pastel colors which are great to use during this time of year. I purchased pink and blue pail tins and filled them with the bunny mix m&ms. I used yellow tulle circles inside the pails and pink and blue ribbons to tie the tag on. By the way, great website! I love it!

It turned out to be an inexpensive favor and the guests really thought the poem was cute.

You could also use "confetti" (or candy coated almonds) in either pink and blue or nursery colors, and alter the poem slightly.
