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?

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.

Baby Shower Favor Ideas Many people start out looking for cheap baby shower favors because they have the misconception that all baby shower favors not handmade are expensive. I just hate the word "cheap" because it sounds like the person hosting the baby shower is not enjoying it one bit and they do not want to spend one penny more than necessary on the baby shower. I know from experience in working with the party planners that is not the case but that sticking to a budget is a concern so how about we rephrase our term to affordable baby shower favor ideas or inexpensive baby shower favor ideas. I think after weddings, baby showers are my most favorite event to attend. As in weddings, everyone is so happy about the new arrival or arrivals that its such a joy to get together with family and friends and celebrate the baby with the mom to be. If youre the one hosting the baby shower and are a bit stumped about what baby shower favors to give your guests, lets do some brainstorming together. It sounds like such a cliché but if you already know the sex of the baby, then you can narrow down your favor choices to blue or pink. If you are lucky enough to have time to put the baby shower favors together, then the easiest way to begin is to purchase pink or blue favor boxes or favor bags with matching ribbon. Candies such as jelly beans are always nice fillers for the boxes along with nuts or mints. If youve chosen a favor bag, then you have a bit more options. One of my favorite baby shower favors was a pink organza bag filled with potpourri. I tossed it in my lingerie drawer when I went home and the scent lingered for several months after the shower - lovely reminder of a fun day. A few more ideas for filling the favor bag are bath crystals, hot cocoa mix (for showers in the winter), or wildflower seeds for spring showers. If youre like me and you do not have a lot of time to sit down and hand make your baby shower favors, then youre looking for a fun, yet affordable gift for the guests to take home with them. Many adorable baby shower favors are really not expensive. Lets take a look. Candle favors are great party favors for so many events because its a practical party favors that guests will definitely use some time in the future. Candle favors imprinted with a baby and baby power scented or baby bottle candle favors are just too cute for words and quite inexpensive. Another affordable way to go is to choose a baby shower favor that does double duty - first as a place card holder then as a picture frame your guests take home with them to use later (possibly to hold babys first picture?). From baby clothes to teddy bears, photo frames are available in many ways and low prices that you are sure to find one to match your baby shower decorations. Personalized baby shower favors arent as expensive as people think. You do have to purchase a minimum number since the favor is personalized with the Mom To Bes name, but overall quite the buy. A few of my favorites are lip balms, hand creams and even bath gels. These baby shower favors are small yet just the right size to toss in your suitcase when traveling and since theyre personalized, will always remind the guest of the fun time they had at the baby shower. We hope this article has given you a few ideas for choosing your baby shower favors. Most importantly, just have fun - both when planning the baby shower and when you receive all the compliments on a shower well planned!
