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 giant list of DIY baby shower party favors!
16 DIY Baby Shower Favors
My bestie, Annie, made these for my 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 which was perfect for the B is for baby shower! Tons more details on the book inspired baby shower here. I used these small bags of Hairbo gummi bears and let folks take a few packs!
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. I also grabbed 2 pairs of size 6 and size 10 to cover all of my bases.
5. Strawberry shortcake
Who doesn’t love dessert?! It doesn’t get cuter or yummier than these little strawberry shortcakes in a mason jars. 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 bath salts. 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, candy and dessert is 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 will use! Get the free printable at Pretty Providence.
10. Can of soda (or pop!)
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”. Party favor idea via Party Inspiration.
12. Nail polish
Print out this sweet poem and attach to a your favorite bottle of pink nail polish. Here is the party favor poem:
Tiny fingers, tiny toes,
Itty bity baby clothes,
Dresses, ribbons, and hair to curl,
We are tickled pink ____ is having a girl!
13. Potted flowers
Who doesn’t love a plant? This potted flower set up from In This Wonderful Life is adorable.
14. Chap stick
Burt’s Bee’s chap stick is another useful, cute party favor that anyone would appreciate. The “Thank you for bee-ing here” is a sweet sentiment for bee themed baby shower.
15. Stroller favors
DIY an origami stroller out of paper and Hershey Kisses. Cute and tasty! For the step by step tutorial, check out Qbees Quest.
16. Nail Polish
