Fun & Unique Baby Shower Favors

A baby shower is often the highlight of an expectant mother's pregnancy. Planning a baby shower requires some thought and consideration for the expectant mother's special event. Baby shower favors are among the items that must be considered when planning a shower.

Baby shower favors do not have to be complicated to make an impressionable impact on visitors. Most people are happy enough to come to the shower just to visit the mom to be in all her pregnant glory. Baby shower favors however can provide a memento of the unique event and offer a simple way to thank guests for visiting and celebrating the mother's time of joy.

Baby shower favors come in every size, shape and form. Some simple gift ideas include the following:

  • Candles

  • Miniature boxes of chocolates or candy

  • Bath and body items

  • Pictures

  • Gift baskets

  • Lotto tickets

  • Movie tickets

Keep in mind that to make any party even more fun and eventful, baby shower favors that coincide with the "theme" of the party are even more fun to pass out. For example, if the expectant mother is carrying twins, and the theme of the shower revolves around multiples, it might be possible to offer baby shower gifts that coincide with this idea. Some ideas in this situation might involve the following:

  • Double Bubble

  • "Twix" Candy Bars

  • 2 pairs of anything

  • Identical picture frames

  • Manicure and pedicure set

  • Pair of coffee spoons

One neat idea for baby shower favors is to have each guest bring a "white elephant gift". The idea of white elephant gifts typically surfaces during Christmas time, when guests are invited to bring a "mock" gift to a party for exchange. This may include silly items such as used household appliances, a roll of toilet paper or an open box of Oreo cookies. Guests are encouraged to wrap the gifts, then each member of the party can select a number and draw gifts. Using white elephant gifts as party favors is a great way to share laughter and joy in a shower situation.
