One question we are regularly asked is - 'What are baby shower favours and what are they for?' Well, wonder no more they are simply a small token gift which is either given to guests to say thank you for coming and/or handed out as prizes for baby shower games. Whilst the baby shower is all about celebrating mummy to be we think its a lovely idea to include guests in the celebration with a little gesture.
We have put together a list of 10 great favour ideas for your guests so check it out below;
1, Baby Jar Candle
We love these upcycled baby jars which have been turned into candles. You can buy wax from hobby shops, online candle making stores or even some supermarkets stock kits. Simply add stickers or ribbon or just pop in an organza bag.
A fantastic favour for a winter baby shower - these hot chocolate bottles are always very popular! Simply fill with hot chocolate and marsh mallows or if necessary a layer of powdered milk too. Then if you wish, add a tag or label to personalise.
3, Sweet Pails
Favour pails are perfect to fill with any sweet of your choice. In this picture we feature our Tiny Feet Favour Pails teamed with these super cute Rock Sweets. You can add anything from bonbons to peppermints and when the guest has emptied the pail these also make gorgeous tea light holders!
4, Marshmallow pops
These marshmallow pops not only taste delicious but they look gorgeous too. Cheap to make and easy to put together they will look great on and table. For instructions on how to make head to http://www.my-practical-baby-guide.com/princess-baby-shower-marshmallow-pops-favor.html
A very popular wedding table option which is now catching on for baby showers, why not add these gorgeous Baby Miffy Bubbles to your table.
6, Ready to pop
Very much on trend at the moment is the popcorn favour. Nearly always featuring a label or tag saying 'Ready to pop' this low cost favour is simple and effective. Add popcorn to a treat box or a cello bag and finish with a ribbon.
7, Sweetie Cone,
The humble sweetie cone. Once the easy answer to replace the annoying party bag at children's birthdays the cone has now been adapted for baby showers. A versatile idea, cones can be filled with sweets, popcorn, hot chocolate powder and marshmallows or even bath salts with a loofah sponge in the top!
8, Nail Varnish
These can be as expensive or as cheap as you like (especially with the rise of the 99p shop). Add to an organza bag or decorate with a ribbon or label to add a bit of pizazz.
In particular we love the slogan that comes with these soap bars we found on Pinterest - 'From my shower to yours'. Need we say more?
10, Seed Packs
For those gardeners among you, why not put together the gift of mother nature. The seed packs we have seen are very cute and easy enough to add a personalised label to.
