Baby Shower Favors – Ideas For Making The Right Choice And Make It Memorable

A baby shower is a party in which parents receive gifts for
their expected child or born child. This days due to new
ideas, concepts, themes, games, and changes in etiquette or
culture some people prefer to hold showers after the birth
of the baby. Traditionally, a baby shower is held only for
the mother-to-be, and only women attend.

Do you remember going to birthday parties as a little kid?
I guess you will! You always came home with a goodies bag.
Sometimes it would contain sweet, candy, bubbles or a
pinwheel. It was so fun to go to someone else’s birthday
and come up with a little present for yourself.

Bring a present – get a present are traditional activities
that are common at baby showers.. But choosing the right
gifts for the shower party can be challenging considering
that there are so many choices when it comes to choosing
party favors for the baby shower that it can often be
overwhelming. We still get to do that as grown-ups … only
now we call them “favors.” It sounds much more dignified,
don’t you agree?

Generally, shower party events is center on gift-giving,
hence it will be a nice gesture to have something that your
guests can take home with them after the festivities are
finished. If your shower will be like most, you will probably
play some silly games such as baby shower bingo, guess the
baby food flavor: guests have to taste-test several flavors
of baby food and try to identify them, other games include
a diaper throw game, and the diapers have candies or
chocolate stuff etc. No game would be complete without
prizes or favors.

But no one likes to leave empty handed. You should have
some small favors for everyone to take home, whether or not
they have won a game. How about a little tin candle with a
custom label that reads “Your friendship lights my day.
Thank you for bringing sweet joy and fulfillment to my
family. Thanks for being part of my special day”?

Almost everyone likes chocolate. Little boxes of chocolate
that read, “You are so sweet. Thanks for coming to my baby
shower.” Or a little package of nuts wrapped in tulle,
“You are nuts. But that is why we are friends – thank you for
coming to my shower, thank you for making my shower

Lotion is always a good little favor for women. Be careful
not to get something too fragrant – as some people are
bothered by strong scents. The truth is that it does not
really matter what you offer as a favor. It’s a small token
of your appreciation for the time your friends devoted to
celebrate your baby.

I will say this; your favor should be something they can
use. Even it is it s small bud vase with dried flowers from
your garden. When deciding what you will have for little
favors, try to think of something unique but inexpensive
and “What is not going to end up in the trash as soon as
they leave?”

Perhaps you could give your guests a small gift booklet and
inscribe something sweet on the inside cover: “I appreciate
your wisdom and support of my new baby.” Or “Thanks for all
times I have cried on your shoulder, I appreciate you.” Or if
you do not feel very sentimental how about simply: “Thanks
for coming to my baby shower. Thank you for bringing sweet
joy and fulfillment to my family.

Baby shower favors do not have to be anything expensive,
fancy, but something to show your appreciation to your
guest for being part of your special day. Nothing would
comes close to ending this unique and special occasion than
to have baby shower favors that would reflect the high
spirits of gladness and joy of all the people who came to
celebrate the upcoming arrival of the new or born baby.
