I have thrown a few baby showers in my day, and DIY baby shower favors is one of my favorite parts of shower planning. I combined my love of cheesy sayings with useful items for a list of 16 baby shower favor ideas. We’ve got everything from tea to soap and even flip flops on this list of DIY baby shower party favors!
16 DIY Baby Shower Favors
Below are 16 of the best baby shower favors to say thank you to guests for showering the mom-to-be with so much love!
My bestie, Annie, made these for my twinkle twinkle little star themed baby shower! Aren’t they adorable? You can buy the star charms on Amazon. She made the printable “Make a Wish” cards herself. They were a big hit!
2. Gummi bears
I used gummi bear favors for my friend’s B is for Baby & Books baby shower. They are inexpensive, cute and started with a B. Plus who doesn’t love candy? Tons more details on the book inspired baby shower here. I used these mini bags of Hairbo gummi bears and let folks take as many as they wanted! These little gummy bear treats work well for any baby shower theme.
3. Tea bags
This is perfect for a tea party baby shower. These cute tea bags were paired with honey sticks for my sisters sprinkle. Thank you, Tiffany, for throwing her such a sweet and thoughtful shower!
4. Flip flops
For this beach inspired baby shower, flip flops were the perfect party favor! It just so happend that Old Navy was having their $1 flip flop sale while I was planning the party and it worked out perfectly. I snagged 5 pairs of blue, turquoise, and yellow flip flops in size 7, 8, and 9. Here is a great deal on 48 pairs of flip flops on Amazon.
5. Strawberry shortcake
Who doesn’t love dessert?! It doesn’t get cuter or yummier then these strawberry shortcakes in a mason jars. Add a recipe for a fun, personalized touch. Cookies in a mason jar would be cute too. Check out this post for more pictures of the vintage, bird inspired baby shower.
Soap is a useful, sweet party favor that everyone will enjoy. For a friend’s baby sprinkle I used the saying, “You butter believe we are excited for baby girl McBroom!” and handed out shea butter soaps to all of the guests. If you aren’t using shea butter soap, consider using “From (Name of the mom to be) shower to yours!” instead.
7. Bath salts
For a shower favor that everyone can use, attach a note that says,” From Em’s shower to yours!” to a small mesh bag filled with homemade bath salts. Sugar scrubs could be used too! Add dried flowers to the bags and the sweet favors can do double duty as table decor. (These bags from Amazon work great!)
8. Lemon drops
Like I said above, sweet treats are always a winner! For more pictures of the baby sprinkle check out Sew In Love.
9. Hand sanitizer baby shower party favor
I keep hand sanitizer in every bag I own. This is a party favor that your guests are sure to use! Hand lotion is a great alternative. Add twine or ribbon around each container for a festive touch. Get the free printable at Pretty Providence.
10. Can of soda (or pop!)
No need for favor boxes! Use a brown paper bag to wrap of the guest of honors favorite soda can and add a cute label, “About to pop!” I especially love this idea if the guest of honor has a love for Diet Coke or any soda! Consider substituting soda for popcorn, ring pops, blow pops, or pop rocks. Party favor idea via Party Inspiration.
Package up some local honey in honor the “Mom to bee”. Edible treats are always a hit! Party favor idea via Party Inspiration.
