Anyone who has ever planned a baby shower is all too familiar with how much it can cost. Sure, the baby shower invitations dont cost that much, the decorations are a reasonable expense. But when you start adding it all together, it can get a little too expensive. You have the invitations, decorations, food, centerpiece, games, prizes, favors & a gift! It all starts to add up pretty fast. So, Where to Cut Costs? One of the best ways to save money at a baby shower is to buy or make cheap baby shower favors. Baby shower favors are a "Thank you for coming" item or memento that you give to each guest for coming to the party. They dont need to be expensive or elaborate; a little something sweet and thoughtful would be perfect. How to Make Cheap Baby Shower Favors Cute and Memorable? The single most important & meaningful touch that you can give to your baby shower favors is attaching a cute, heartfelt note to each favor. Use a fun thank you poem or a sweet note like, "Thanks for celebrating Julias little boy blue! The baby shower wouldnt have been the same without you!" A simple, meaningful note will make your baby shower favors worth a lot more than an expensive, impersonal party favor. Here are some simple & sweet ideas for cheap baby shower favors: o Scented or decorative candles o Baby bottles filled with candy or chocolates (maybe Hersheys Hugs and Kisses?) o Cookie Mix o Bread Mix o Soup Mix o A Little Fruit Basket o Novelty Soaps (in baby shapes, e.g. rubber ducky, baby bootie, pacifier, etc) o Personalized candy bars o Scented body lotion (Little bottles cost less than $1) o Fun Hair Products o Scented Hair Spray o Fun Lipstick o Cookies, brownies, anything tasty! o Stationary - Any and all themes (baby, country, angels, stars, Winnie the Pooh, etc,) o Diaper Candy Cups o Nuts o Scrapbooking Supplies - This is a fabulous idea for shower favors because you can inexpensively put together several different items to make a little gift basket. You can put as much or as little as you want/can afford. A helpful hint: Buying your favors in bulk and/or at a dollar store is a great way to save money on your favors (and other party items too). Favors you can eat are always a hit! Anything edible is usually a great idea for cheap baby shower favors, and are good for both the mind AND the body, cause they taste so good! Send your guests home with a little something sweet.

Different Kinds of Baby Shower This document comes in two parts, and youre on the second part. The first part of the article answered the crucial question "Who to throw the shower for", so be sure to check that out. Now, we just need to answer the rest of the questions: • When to throw the shower? • Is mom-to-be having a girl/boy/twins? • Will it be a face-to-face or online shower? • Is it a surprise shower? • Are the parents adopting? When to throw the shower? Before birth - this is the more popular option, since with this choice, its not just the baby which is glorified, but the entire pregnancy thing as well. If you are opting for this one, then you should throw the shower around two months before the baby arrives. After birth - though not as popular as the other one, some mom-to-bes prefer this because of some beliefs that having it before is not as lucky as having it after. If this is your choice, then throw the shower one month after the baby is born. And, make sure that games and activities are solely about babies, since having pregnancy games seem like a thing of the past. Is mom-to-be having a girl/boy/twins? Baby boy - invitation, decoration, and theme are greatly affected by this one, since you would not want an invitation that shows a picture of a baby girl, when youre having a boy, right? And you definitely dont want a princess shower, when you should be having a prince shower. Baby girl - basically the same considerations as the previous one, but this time, everything should be about baby girls. Twins - everything that you could do by pairs (pictures of babies in invitations, grouping in games and activities, etc), you need to do so, so as to stress that mom-to-be is having twins. Noahs Ark is the most commonly-used theme, but dont worry, you are not limited to it, since it is quite simple to customize other themes to make them twin shower-friendly. Will it be a face-to-face or online shower? Face-to-face - this is the more popular option. If you are opting for this one, then no sweat, most of the available baby shower themes will work perfectly. Online - with the advent of technology, friends from all sides of the world could still join mom-to-be on her baby shower. This is all possible by availing services of web baby shower vendors. The extent of shower activities is dependent on the services provided by your vendor. Since everybody have some family or friends from all sides of the world, even those having a face-to-face shower cant help but have an online one on the side. And who can blame them, a new baby is definitely worth celebrating, long distance or otherwise. Is it a surprise shower? Surprise shower - if you feel your friend (mommy) would appreciate a shower more if it comes as a surprise, then you are definitely throwing her a surprise shower. Instead of working with mom-to-be, you need to work with somebody very close to her, so that all her preferences will still be carried out. Your invitation should say that its a surprise shower. The more popular option is the non-surprise version (not a surprise, right?). And the reason is perfectly clear. Since you are not oblige to throw a shower for mom-to-be, the fact that you want to throw one is already a pleasant surprise. Plus theres no beating the fact that it is much better to be able to consult her, right? Are the parents adopting? Adoption shower - this is a very special shower type, but also very sensitive. We bet that the parents-to-be have been really dying to have a child for quite some time, and that theyre the very couple who would like to celebrate grandly when a child is already promised to them. This is also the most sensitive, and thus, you must make sure that references to pregnancy are limited (if not omitted altogether), and everything should just be about the baby. Also, before you throw the shower, make sure that the baby is already with the parents. You dont want to throw a victory celebration before the victory, so to speak. It is possible to throw a shower that is a combination of two or more of these baby shower types. For example, you could throw a twin WOMEN ONLY baby shower or a twin WOMEN ONLY surprise baby shower. The keyword here is customize, since these baby shower types are the popular options, not necessarily your option. At the end of the day, it will still be your decision.
