Between recently attending our friends’ lovely baby showers to planning and hosting some of our own, we’ve been putting a lot of thought into all things B-A-B-Y and are bursting at the seams to share the adorableness with you.
There are tons of sweet little touches you can put on a baby shower, but one of our favorite ways to put a unique stamp on the party is through the use of party favors for the generous guests.
Putting a little extra thought into this part of the shower will not only show how grateful you are for everyone’s love and support, but your partygoers will walk away raving about their newest little treasure (and most likely post an Instagram gushing over your beyond brilliant party favor—and let’s be real, isn’t that the goal?!).
See below for some of our most recent favorites!
1. Baby Succulents
Seriously, what’s not to love about succulents?! They are tiny and adorable and portable and not to mention they’re pretty dang hard to kill (which is huge for us non-green thumbs). Put them in little mason jars, wrap some lace around the top and voila—a favor everyone will fall in love with.
This is obviously a more seasonal idea, but if the baby is due in December or any time around the holiday season, have your favor be a cute ornament symbolizing the special day. Include a sweet tag or sign prompting your guests to “Take one to remember Baby X arrives this December!” and they’ll think of that precious babe every time they look at their tree.
3. Tub Teas
Put a spin on your typical tea bag by giving your lovely ladies a homemade “tub tea” to pamper themselves. Send them home with the promise of a luxurious soak with a delicious infusion of calming scents. Try this easy recipe!
4. DIY Flower Crowns
Flower crowns are kind of all the rage these days, and we’re definitely on board with the gorge trend. Set up a “make your own crown” station at the shower and have guests intermittently stop by the table to create their own masterpiece they can wear throughout the shower and take home. THIS flower crown DIY guide is a great starting point.
5. S’mores Kit
There’s nothing like a s’more to make you feel like a kid again. Give your guests a reason to indulge by sending them on their way with this sweet treat. Make your own kit at home, or if you’re in a pinch you can order some HERE.
6. “She’s About To POP” Popcorn Bags
