Don't know where to post this-need baby shower favor ideas?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this question since it is not wedding related, but since you ladies always have such great ideas I thought I would ask. I am helping my aunt throw my cousin and his FI a baby shower. She wants to do a unique favor instead of a typical chotchke (sp?) item. They are having a boy, if that helps.

I know not really unique but I always like getting a travel size lotion from Bath and Body works. Tie a blue ribbon on it and you are set.

hmm sorry I am not a lot of help here but what about some of the same types of things that people do for weddings like donations, like donating to the march of dimes in the name of all the guests? If I was going to a shower I would so much rather that than something that will sit in my house and collect dust.

these probably aren't very unique. but for my sil's shower last week, we got baby bottles and filled them with bath salts. We also had soaps made in the shape of baby blocks, purchased off ebay. i can find out the sellers name if you want they were really adorable.

 

Did you check out Cary's bridal shower favors, the homemade soaps? i loved them.

o.k., am I the only one that has never received a favor at a baby shower. I'm not help. I have no clue what would be a good favor.

Question - do they keep the favor or do they give it to the mom-to-be?

Lisa I am with you, I have only received a gift bag for winning a game, never gotten a favor at a baby shower.

I agree with Christine about my favors collecting dust. But if you don't want to do a donation thing, I'm always a fan of food favors. Cookies are my favorite favor gift ever!

 

I've gotten favors at all the baby showers I've been too. Hmm. Maybe it's a regional thing?

For the two baby showers I've planned:

one- I bought pink bars of soap and wrapped them up in baby themed flannel to look like diapers. (I used small safety pins to fasten the cloth around the soap.) They were a hit.

For the one next month I am planning to make baby-themed shaped cookies. We don't know the gender for this one, so it makes things a little more difficult.

 

I think the mini baby bottles with bath salts is a great idea! You can probably find toy baby bottles at the dollar store.
