      For my shower, I made sugar scrubs for all the guests, and I got rave reviews. I think it worked out to maybe $2/jar? I still have about 25 jars if you decide to go this route.

       

      This may be too much info but whatever LOL

       

      I got pet jars from Uline (sold by the case, best prices I could find), sugar and oil from Aldi (cheapie grocery store) and fragrance oils from Michaels. One variety box of fragrence oils would make more than 85 scrubs. I made labels and tags and I was able to make 40 jars in one night.

        I have been in 10 weddings and probably been to at least 20 showers and I have never received a "Favor" for attending the shower.  Of course, we would get prizes for any games played, but that's it.  So, are favors even a necessity, especially for 85 people???  It's definitely a nice gesture, but I have never expected anything from a wedding shower just for attending. 

         

        But, I do think the sugar scrubs sounds fab!!!

          I agree. I have been to many bridal showers and I have never recieved a favor. If you did one it would be great but I would not feel obligated to do them.

              one of my bridesmaids maid these for our favors.  You could fill them with pink jelly beans!

                I've been to several showers and have received favors at some but not all. The favors I received were super cute! At one shower, we were given small mirrors which were personalized with our name, photo below. At my shower, one of the hostesses gave everyone really cute patterned dish washing gloves, I believe she got them at Michaels.  She put them in white take out boxes and tied the box with a bow in our wedding colors.  Everyone loved it!  

                 

                As people said above, I wouldn't feel pressured to give a gift to everyone at the shower, especially since it sounds like there will be a lot of people there. I think giving a gift to the winners of games that are played is sufficient. However, if you do decide, I hope some of these ideas helped!!
