What’s a baby shower without a fun giveaway at party’s end? It’s always nice to send your guests on their way with a takeaway to remember the day. Some are useful, some are decorative, some are delicious, but all are appreciated.
It’s always a good idea to tie your favor to the party theme. Get creative and think outside the box to give something that will have lasting utility, or just be a reminder of a great party and a wonderful mom-to-be.
Here are some farewell favor ideas for all sorts of shower themes to get you started:
For a Green Shower:
Give your baby shower guests a gift that keeps on growing with herb plant favors. Watch how your plants grow and thrive, just like the soon to arrive baby. Have a craft serve two purposes with a build your own terrarium. Bring the outdoors in by setting up a station with stones, ferns, succulents and soil. Have fun at the party and send guests home with their own creation.
For a cook’s shower:
Do you have a special recipe? Spread the love by mixing up a batch of your homemade jam, banana bread or chocolate cookies. What a sweet and simple way to indulge and send your guests home with something delicious. They’ll think of you with every bite!
For a prince/princess shower:
Spread the love by engraving a beautiful spoon with a sweet saying for the little one in your guest’s lives.
For a music theme:
Compile custom CDs or streaming playlists with the mom-to-be’s favorite songs. Choose classical, top 40, oldies, or even a playlist that’s full of lullabies for baby.
For a camp theme:
Wrap up happy camper marshmallow packs with all the ingredients to make s'mores in the oven or by a cozy fire.
For a storybook shower:
Mark the occasion with these storybook candle favors. Wrap glass candle holders with pages from your favorite children’s books tied with ribbon or rick rack. They’ll make great décor and lovely favors to take home.
For a sweets shower:
Sweets are the treat that make showers so much fun, so send your guests home with something indulgent. Get a batch of pretty jars, tins or bags and fill them with an assortment of sweets.
You can color-coordinate the offerings with your theme or go pink or blue if you know the baby’s gender. Or there’s always yellow if the news is unknown.
