Baby shower party favors will make this beautiful event even more cherishing. You might think to yourself; “sure another cost I have to add to my budget!” However, the best part is that you can give party favors without being costly or extravagant.  Guests do not ‘expect’ to receive anything, after all it is the expectant mother’s day.  And usually, simple baby shower party favors are given.

Inexpensive Baby Shower Favors

Inexpensive, low cost favors are as example, cookies. You can make flavorful and fun cookies as baby shower favors. You can buy cookie cutters with different shapes for baby showers and decorate them with your baby shower theme.  Wrap the cookies in nice baby shower favor gift bags, add a tag and tie it with a ribbon. You can also go for the personalized or custom made messages for favors, this does add a special touch.  You can have them print or hand write them on speciality tags for baby showers.

A good idea are also Hershey Kisses in bulk and you can add on the bottom of the kisses with baby shower stickers or personalized stickers such as ‘Lisa’s Baby Shower – Dec 1, 2015’.

Gender Party Favors for Baby Shower

This becomes very easy for the party host to select the baby shower party favors if the gender of the new baby is known. Pink for girl, or blue for boy. If you do not have an idea about the gender of the new baby, then you can’t go wrong with pastel colors, such as mint or soft yellow.  Again baby shower favor gifts should generally match the theme and decor of your party.

These are just a few baby shower favor gift ideas that can be given to the guests.  Have any great ideas for favors you would like to share?

    Hi Terry,
    I love the EOS lip balm template for a baby shower favor…Those lip balms are very popular.
    The ones you mention that are under $2 are excellent too.
    On my last shower I threw , I made my own favors and mixed different sweets together.
    Imagine having a few cookies, Hershey kisses, and cakepops. All the ladies liked them a lot.
    I packed them in plastic favor bags and printed “thank you” tags.
