Popular Baby Shower Favors and Gifts Baby Shower Favors Baby shower favors are the perfect keepsake for both moms-to-be and baby shower guests. There are literally hundreds of potential baby shower favors. If youre not sure what baby shower favors will work best for an upcoming baby shower, consider purchasing one or more of the most popular types of baby shower favors: Candles. Most women love candles: They can be used to bring a pleasant scent to a room or a home, or they can simply be displayed as attractive decorations, making candles one of the most popular baby shower favors. If youre creative and love trying new things, you can make your own candles. Or, you can choose from an eclectic range of candles at such online shops as Discount Baby Shower Favors. If the mom-to-be is whimsical and fun, opt for the Baby Bottle Candle, an adorable candle in a glass vase and capped with a pink or blue bottle cap. Alternately, if the mom-to-be prefers classic candles, youll find that Calla Lily Gel Candle is simple yet stunning. Soap. Soap is traditionally popular as a baby shower favor. If youve never seen soap used as a baby shower favor, youre likely imagining something boring and simple. Not so. Soap can be a fun and an attractive baby shower gift; the Scented Heart Soap Favor in Gift Box , for example, is heart-shaped soap that comes in a box, complete with a beautiful bow. Frames. Every family, especially those with a newborn, wants to decorate their home with favorite photographs of family members. Traditional baby shower favors, frames remain as one of the top gifts to give to guests of a baby shower. Frames used for baby shower favors are often either blue or pink. But, even if you dont know the gender of the baby, you can still present guests with an attractive frame - like the Leather Frame Keychain in Sheer Organza Bag - that they can keep for years. Baby Shower Gifts Buying baby shower gifts is often a challenge, considering there are some items that are often popular but not practical baby shower gifts. Many agree that purchasing clothes, bottles, or pacifiers is simply not a good idea. Because all newborns are born at different weights and grow rapidly, clothes arent a realistic gift. And, while bottles and pacifiers may seem ideal, babies generally have their own preferences for bottles and pacifiers. Rather than risk giving a baby shower gift that wont or cant be used, opt for a baby shower gift that the parents-to-be and the newborn are certain to love: Bathsets. Every baby needs bathed, making bath sets one of the most popular baby shower gifts. Popular gift sets, like the Finley the Frog Bath Time Gift Set and Tillie the Turtle Bath Time Gift Set, often include a wash cloth, a hooded towel, and terry cloth slippers. A bath set is an affordable, popular baby shower gift that new parents can use again and again. Burping cloths. Every baby needs burped, making burping cloths a perennial favorite baby shower gift. You can generally find burping cloths in all colors, but the most popular are those that are pink and blue. Booster pillow. A booster pillow still stands as one of the most popular baby shower gifts, and some can be used as both a sturdy pillow and a soft toy to cuddle. Some booster pillows, among them Bailey the Bunny Cashmere Soft Booster Pillow, also come with a growth chart, which allow mom and dad to chart their new little ones growth progress.
Baby Showers Combine Old Traditions and New Styles A baby is one of the most precious gifts one can receive. In anticipation for that long-awaited gift, family and friends are eager to give other gifts to the mother-to-be in preparation for whats ahead. These gifts range from the newborn essentials like diapers and wipes, to adorable outfits and colorful toys. No matter the type of celebration, whether its based on family tradition or whether its simply a casual gathering of friends, there are a number of party etiquette tips to follow. If you make yourself aware of a few baby shower dos and donts, your guests will easily understand whats expected of their presence and what type of shower theyll be attending simply by looking at your baby shower invitations and even baby address labels. From fancy and chic to simple and modern, the style choices are endless, and can often set the tone for the celebration ahead. Party Details Years ago, showers were only thrown for a womans first baby. And often times, the mothers bridesmaid or maid of honor hosted the party. They would send out baby shower invitations and once gathered, all the women would share their own experiences as a mother and prepare the expectant mother for what was to come. There were gifts given and they were often hand-me-downs and family heirlooms. Regardless the gift, the purpose was to provide the mother-to-be with essential baby items for their newborns arrival. Times have certainly changed. Todays focus isnt on the education but instead on the celebration. Anyone can host the shower, from friends to siblings or even in-laws, and many times men can even attend. As with a lot of traditions, baby showers have become more casual and open to new ideas. Though times have altered how we send out thank you cards or give gifts, it doesnt mean that certain traditions cant be respected. Families may have preferences about who should host the party or what type of food is served. In these specific instances, the proper etiquette would be to follow the requested tradition. Baby Shower Invitations and More When it comes to setting the tone and theme for the celebration, its critical to choose baby shower invitations and baby address labels that are representative for the type of party youre throwing. Whether its jungle themed, ABC 123 or even based on nursery rhymes, carry the style through to the thank you cards and baby address labels. Family and friends will appreciate the coordinating style and youll have fun putting it together. If the shower is being held after the birth of the child, photo baby announcements can be used to share the important news and prepare guests for showering the newborn with love. In the same fashion as other types of invitations, baby shower invitations should include the date, time and location. They should be mailed out four to six weeks prior to the shower date. With most of todays showers being gift-giving events, registry information should be included in the baby shower invitations. If youre looking for ideas on where to host the event, plan on either your own home, the expectant mothers home, a restaurant, park or local community center. You can be just as creative with the venue as you are with the baby shower invitations. Final Tips for the Hostess As you prepare to host a fabulous baby shower for your loved one, keep organized on all your responsibilities so the party goes off without any glitches. Expectations as the host include sending baby shower invitations to family and friends, decorating the venue, organizing games or activities and providing food and beverages. It may seem like a large list, but if you set a theme and focus everything around it, your planning will tie together and impress guests. For example, should you choose to have a farm animal themed party, let adorable chickens, cows and pigs playfully make their way onto your baby shower invitations with images and creative wording, the party décor, thank you cards and even some of the games. Other hostess responsibilities include providing guests with party favors, food and entertainment. Have fun by playing interactive games such as word scrambles, rhyming games or even "Name That Tune" with nursery rhymes. Again, tie in your selected theme to make the party come full circle. And when it comes to the food, keep the theme in mind, too. Whether you host a BBQ, serve tea and dessert, or go with an Italian menu, the food can also help tie in the overall look and feel of your party. Hosting a baby shower is both fun and exciting. You get to share the building anticipation for a new baby by sending thoughtful baby shower invitations and hosting a memorable celebration for the mother-to-be. As old traditions combine with modern style, you can make your party be sentimental, stylish and full of memories for family and friends.
