Baby Shower Favors Ideas
Having a baby
shower for a friend or family member who is having a baby can be
great fun. It is always exciting to celebrate a new baby and to
shower the mother-to-be with cute and useful baby gifts. While a baby
shower is great fun, the expense can get rather large for the ones
hosting the shower. One way to cut down on costs for a baby shower is
to make the baby shower favors yourself or even get together with
other friends or relatives of the Mom-To-Be make them together. This
can be loads of fun and you can get to know people you may not have
known that well. Not only is this a great way to keep the cost down,
but it is also a wonderful way to show your talent and other's talent
and provide unique baby shower favors. The following are several
ideas for homemade baby shower favors that will have your guests
smiling with pleasure.
cookies make great baby shower favors and they are easy to make and
tasty to eat. There are a variety of different cookies that you might
find suitable for the occasion. You can bake mini chocolate chip
cookies and send each of your guests home with a decorated bag of
them. Another idea is to make cutout cookies in baby shapes such as
bonnets, bottles and bassinettes. You can find baby shower cookie
cutters at many craft stores or cooking stores. After you make the
cutout cookies, you can then decorate them in either blue or pink,
depending on the sex of the baby. Almost everyone enjoys good
cookies, so these party favors are sure to be a big hit.
enjoy scented soaps almost as much as they enjoy scented candles.
You can make beautiful scented soaps in either pink or blue and wrap
them in tulle and tie with a ribbon for a great party favor. Even if
you have never made soap before, you can go to a craft store and get
soap making kits for the occasion. Depending on the size, you may
want to give each person more than one. Scented soaps are easy to
make and they are relatively cheap to make as well.

great idea for homemade baby shower favors is unique candy
containers. You can find containers that go along with the baby theme
like baby bottles and baby food jars and then you can fill them up
with candy such as m&m?s, gumdrops or jellybeans. After you fill
them with candy, you can decorate them with pastel colored ribbons
and you will have cute party favors in just a matter of minutes.
women enjoy candles and making candles is relatively easy. All you
need is some scented wax from a local craft store and material for
the wick. Using baby food jars are excellent for making these
candles. You can simply place the wick in the baby food jar, heat the
wax and then carefully pour the heated wax into the jar, being
careful to keep the wick centered. It only takes a couple hours for
the candles to cool and then all you need to do is decorate the baby
food jars. You can decorate them with fabric on the jar lids and
ribbons around the jars. Baby themed pictures also make great
decorations on these candles as well.
great homemade baby shower party favor that will celebrate new life
is a seedling. You can purchase seeds of a plant or flower and plant
them a couple weeks ahead of time to get them growing. Cute
containers for the seedlings are baby food jars and small baby
bottles. If you want the favors to be a bit more elegant, you can
plant the seeds in beautiful wine glasses and tie a pretty ribbon
around them stem. Decorated mugs also are great for planting these
seedlings. This kind of party favor gives your guests something to
remember and cherish from the baby shower.
you are making homemade baby shower gifts, make sure to remember
that it is the thought that really counts. Whether your candles look
perfect or your cookies are a little crooked, your guests will love
having a memento of the baby shower. Homemade gifts are easy, cheap
and fun. It will be a great way to help the Mom-To-Be and all of your
guests have a great time.
