Baby shower favors are definitely not necessary.
Most guests will be happy with some good food, lively company and an entertaining game or two.
For me, a baby shower favor is only really worth it if it’s something guests can actually use.
Here are some baby shower favors that are actually worth buying, because your guests will LOVE receiving them.
Baby Shower Favors
I LOVE pink nail polish as baby shower favors for girls.
So girly & pink, not to mention chic and current.
You might want to hand these out personally to guests as they leave, so they don’t all end up in one guests handbag!
Don’t worry – there are some gorgeous blue polishes available too.
Baby Shower Favors to Eat
Another great way to go for baby shower favors is baby shower favors you can eat!
Here are some unique edible baby shower favor ideas – click on any of the pictures for full details.
Who doesn’t love snacking on a sweet or two after leaving a party?
This baby shower favor gives you both – a keepsake AND a sweet treat. All you need are these cute jars sold in bulk and some candy to match.
I love these because you can use these as pretty decorations and then give them away to your guests & mom-to be during or after the baby shower.
Who can say no to these Chocolate Covered Oreo Sprinkle Pops?
You can choose from pre-made designs like “It’s a Boy”, “It’s a Girl”, “Blue or Pink?” or even upload your own!
Another delicious favorite are these White Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies shaped like Baby Blocks.
You can find these in pink, yellow, blue or green.
Personalized Baby Shower Favors
You’ll find an endless supply of customizable baby shower favors from Etsy here.
I love shopping on Etsy because not only will you find unique items, you’re also supporting small businesses – many of them run by women & moms from their home.
If you know the baby’s gender, name or due date, you can easily add these details to create a really special keepsake for your guests.
If you’d rather buy from bigger businesses, items like these personalized glass coasters are thoughtful keepsakes.
You can completely design the wording, colors & pictures.
These bottle openers are a personal favorite of mine – completely customizable & super practical.
There are many different theme choices.
These are PERFECT for coed baby showers!
They work for gender reveal parties too!
These customized glasses make beautiful party decorations and will definitely be used again & again.
Cookie cutters are always popular and go nicely with pretty much every baby shower theme.
A more classic favor, these heart-shaped measuring spoons (already boxed & wrapped with a ribbon!) are both pretty & practical.
They also work with any theme – great if you don’t know the gender of the baby yet.
Your guests will think you spent a fortune (but you won’t have!) on this adorable white ceramic sugar bowl.
The bowl comes with a lid and is decorated with “Sugar & Spice” on one side of the bowl and “Everything Nice” on the other, all written in silver lettering.
Personalized favors are a guaranteed way to show mom-to-be how much you care.
With so many choices available, it can be hard to choose!
Personalized gifts are perfect for when that handmade baby shower favor project goes out the window!
