One of the sweetest times ever is celebrating a friend’s soon-to-be new arrival! A baby shower is such a joyous occasion for everyone in attendance. A shower is a chance to honor the mother-to-be and their little one with things they may need. Life is busy and someone taking time out of their schedule to celebrate a mom-to-be is so special. It is something to be extra grateful for!
Gifting guests with a favor from your shower isn’t a must but is a nice gesture. I love unique items that guests can use. There are so many categories to choose from, like home décor, beauty products, edible goodies, and even environmentally friendly favors. Be sure to choose something that fits your shower’s theme and your personality. Here are 50 baby shower favor ideas to help spark your imagination for a gift to give your guests.
1. Candle Set
A candle is always a good idea. This 12-piece square candle set is perfect for any guest, and I love that you can personalize it. With the 12, 2-ounce candles, you get tins that are 1.4 inches by 2 inches and a set of stickers.
2. Book of Matches
You could give these personalized matchboxes with the candle listed above or alone! Matches always come in handy around the home and look great on display as well. You get a set of 50 boxes with your order that you can personalize with your baby’s name and other details like the shower date or your baby’s expected due date.
