Inexpensive Baby Shower Favors – Five Ideas Guests Will Love!

Inexpensive baby shower favors will help stretch your baby shower budget. While it’s nice to save money, you don’t want to scrimp where your party guests are concerned so here are five great ideas for inexpensive baby shower favors:

1. Homemade Cookies – A cookie cutter shaped like a baby carriage, bib, or other baby themed item can be used to make sugar cookies which are then decorated and placed in decorative plastic wrap and tied with pink or blue ribbons.

2. Hand-dipped Pretzels – Buy a bag of pretzel rods, some candy making chocolate (that can be melted down), and some decorative sprinkles. Melt the chocolate and dip one end of the pretzel rods in the chocolate, roll in some sprinkles, and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet until the chocolate hardens. Place in decorative plastic bags and tie with ribbon.

3. Votive Candles – Buy some fancy scented votive candles, some tulle, and some ribbon. Wrap each candle in the tulle and tie a bow with the ribbon. For an extra touch, add homemade tags thanking the guests for coming.

4. Favor Boxes or Bags – Buy favor boxes or bags and fill with M&M’s, mixed nuts, Jordan almonds, or any other filling. It’s a classic shower favor that won’t break your budget.

5. Small Lotions or Shower Gels – Small bottles of lotions or shower gels tied with a decorative ribbon are another inexpensive idea. You can usually find them at your local dollar store. In fact, the dollar store is a great place for all kinds of finds that will work great as inexpensive baby shower favors…manicure sets, candles, bags of candy and tulle for wrapping, and more can be found there.

A little ingenuity can go along way when it comes to coming up with inexpensive favors for your baby shower!
