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!
Why Hosting a Baby Shower For First Time Parents Is Important - The Benefits Are Huge! For any woman who has been trying to conceive, finding out shes pregnant is the best news! (Of course, second only to the wedding proposal.) Once the wedding is over and the ceremony and celebration time settles down, finding out that you two will be expecting a new baby is an amazing feeling for any couple. First time parents tend to feel slightly overwhelmed and can find it difficult to narrow down all the "new baby equipment" they are going to need when the baby arrives. Making sure expecting parents have all the major necessities can be a tedious task. Writing a list of all the things they will need for the new baby, and then chipping away at the list throughout the months of her pregnancy can help in getting a head start for the stockpile. Baby showers are also an exceptional way to obtain new baby supplies, and it can take a lot of the financial pressure off of new parents.Some of the burden of searching and looking for baby stuff is now passed on to the guest list, which in turn helps to lessen to stress for the expecting new parents. Showers are great fun for the expecting mom and the guests. Themed showers can be based on color (if the gender of the baby is already known, a pink or blue color theme is widely accepted, and very traditional), character themed baby showers (such as the Sesame Street, Power Puff Girls, Dexters Laboratory or the Looney Tunes), or even a "time-of-the-day baby shower theme" (where each guest is asked to bring something the baby would need or use during that time of the day). Baby shower themes can really be anything you want. Have fun with it, and get creative! Baby shower gifts should be useful and unique for the new parents. The idea of having a celebratory shower is so that the parents receive items they need, but also may or may not have purchased themselves. A great idea is to create your own baby gift basket, or go for the laundry basket clothing baby gift basket filled with baby clothes from ages newborn up to toddler sizes. Other homemade gift basket ideas are a mother and baby basket (a gift for the mother is actually a very nice thing to include), monogrammed baby gift baskets, a pampering baby gift basket (for mom and dad also!) a bath time gift basket, or a play time gift basket. You can create a gift basket based around anything, really. Just fill the basket with items that fit the gift basket theme. Dont forget these easy tips for hosting a successful shower: Make sure the shower is between four to six weeks before the baby is due, decide on a theme, make a guest list and send out the invitations 2-3 weeks before the shower, plan for any baby shower games you may want to have, choose the menu (both food and drinks), dont forget favors and prizes, and last but not the least, remember to have fun while you plan it!
