Baby showers are meant to be a fun way to help a new mom prepare for the baby’s arrival. Family and friends come together and shower the expecting family with gifts. Whether a baby shower is a small gathering or a grand party, there should always be favors. Baby shower favors are a small token to thank guests for their attendance and participation. Whoever plans the shower also gets to choose the favors. There are a lot of options for baby themed favors, so finding the perfect favors is a quick and easy task.
There are several things to consider before purchasing baby shower favors. Make sure to decide on a theme for the shower. Do you want to have all pink or blue colors? If the parents are not finding out the baby’s sex, it is best to stick with neutral colors, such or yellow or green. Find out how the baby’s nursery will be decorated, and you may want to keep that theme for the shower. Duckies, baby booties, teddy bears, flowers, and trains are just a few of the endless ideas that come together to make great themes. Once you’ve decided on a theme, it is time to start looking for favors. Also, be sure to consider the tastes of the guests and expecting mom, and stick to the budget.
Many baby shower favors make great keepsakes, but others are to be enjoyed during the shower. If you think the shower attendees would enjoy keepsakes, then look for something that will last. Small picture frames or ornaments can hold photos when the baby is born. Magnets will hold future artwork or pictures on the fridge. Adorable baby items, such as booties or bottles filled with candies, may be enjoyed at the shower and will always remind the guests of the new bundle of joy. A small packet of flower seeds is a great idea that signifies new life and growth. The ideas really are endless. If possible, personalize the showers with the date of the shower, the family’s name, or the baby’s name, if it is already known. Any unique favor will really add to the fun experience.
