Planning a baby shower and not sure what to do for party favors? I have thrown a few baby showers in my day, and coming up with and making DIY party favors is one of my favorite parts of shower planning. I combined my love of cheesy sayings with useful, inexpensive items for a list of 29 favor ideas everyone will love. Some of these are my original ideas, a few the genius of my party throwing friend, Annie, and some I found on the good ol’ inter-webs. We’ve got everything from popcorn to soap and even flip flops on this ultimate list of DIY baby shower party favors!
