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!

Though not traditional, the idea of having surprise baby shower for the expectant mother is fast gaining popularity. As the name implies, this kind of shower is planned without disclosing it to the mommy-to-be. She is made to visit the venue of baby shower on one pretext or the other, where she discovers it because of the typical decorations and presence of guests.

Most of the women are too nervous and apprehensive during their first pregnancy to appreciate any kind of surprises. Therefore, it is prudent not to have surprise baby shower when a woman is having her first baby. It is better to postpone it or think of holding a surprise shower during second or third pregnancies.

Further, you have to take extra care to ensure that time you choose for the party does not clash with any other commitment of the lady, her husband, and close family members. You may need to take someone very close to her in confidence for this purpose. Be Careful With The Invitation Cards: The invites you send to the guests for surprise baby shower must mention it categorically that its a surprise party. For the mom-to-be may happen to visit some guests house and come across the invite accidentally. Or some of the guests may happen to meet the mom and inadvertently divulge it to her. It is best to keep as little time between sending the invites and the date of surprise shower as possible. Decorations And The Gifts: Decorations for the surprise baby shower do not have to be any different from those for normal baby showers. Its just that you can be a little more experimental and do not need to stick to the conventional baby shower decorations. The same thing goes for gifts for surprise showers. You do not need to restrict the gifts to baby items. You may opt to gift other useful items if you feel like. Baby shower favors are a nice way of expressing gratitude to the guests and appreciating their participation. It must be kept in mind that any kind of shower is aimed at cheering up the mom-to-be and relaxing her mind. You must make all efforts to ensure that the event does not prove to be tiresome for the expectant mother.
