Handing out party favours is a great way to thank your guests for attending your baby shower. Party favours don’t need to be big or expensive. They are more of a token gift, which are often personalised or used as a keepsake. Here we will share five lovely baby shower favour ideas.
Cupcakes packaged in little gift boxes can make the perfect party favours for your baby shower.
1. Retro sweet jar
Little jars filled with sweets make the perfect baby shower favours. If you know the gender of your baby you may want to consider using pink or blue sweets. If you do not know the gender of your baby you could layer the sweets and give your jars a rainbow effect. Simply tie a pretty piece of ribbon around the top of each jar and stick on a label featuring the date of your baby shower. Once your guests have eaten all of the sweets inside, they can re-use the jars at home.
If you enjoy baking, you may want to consider making some cupcakes to give away as party favours. Cover them with icing and decorate them with little baby shower cake toppers. Once you have baked and decorated your cakes, pop them inside specially made cupcake boxes. You can then hand them out at the end of your shower or pop them on the table if you are having a meal.
Candles can make lovely baby shower favours, especially if you buy ones that are shaped like bottles and prams. If you want your candles to be truly fitting with your baby shower theme, you could look for scented candles that smell like baby powder or fresh linen.
Candles make a cute baby shower favour, particularly if they are fitting with your theme.
4. Bath bombs
Most ladies like to take a luxurious bath every now and then so why not gift them with a little bath bomb? If you are worried about people being allergic to certain bath products, it may be best to opt for bath bombs that are made from natural ingredients. Once you have chosen your bath bombs simply wrap them up in cellophane and tie a ribbon around the top. Alternatively you could package them up ready to give to your guests by popping them inside pretty coloured organza bags. Your guests are sure to love receiving a bath bomb party favour!
5. Key rings
Key rings are an inexpensive party favour that can be used as keepsakes of your special day. They come in all shapes and sizes, so you are bound to find ones in the shape of prams, bottles and teddy bears, all of which will fit perfectly in with your baby shower theme. You could even have them personalised with the date of your baby shower. Your guests will either pop them on their keys or store them safely away in their drawers and when people ask what the date is they will be able to say it was the date of your baby shower!
Most guests don’t expect to receive anything more than good company at a baby shower, but it is still lovely to gift them with a party favour as a way of say thank you for their attendance.

Keep your costs to a minimum by shopping around online for the best prices.
