For an inexpensive, decorative baby shower favour, consider making favours starring tea light candles. Dress up these candles with gift tags and colourful tulle to match the party's theme and decorations.


At a baby shower, favours are a way of thanking guests for their contributions to the party and the new parents. Decorative tealights act as quaint, appropriate favours for guests.

Scented Candles

Scented candles provide an opportunity for a baby shower host to help her guests relax. Using the principles of relaxation, give guests scented tea light candles that promote relaxation, such as vanilla and lavender. Consider choosing a few unscented varieties for those with allergies or sensitivities.

Tulle-Wrapped Candles

Tulle, a soft, netted fabric, typically lends itself to a soft, romantic, feminine occasion. Many baby showers evoke these feelings. Wrap tea light candles and baby-themed holders in tulle to create an easy, attractive decoration with the tea lights.

Gift Tags or Boxes

Decorate plain gift boxes with footprints. Place the tea lights in the decorated boxes for guests to take home. Look for baby footprint stamps at the local craft store and use coloured ink pads to decorate the boxes. Other baby-themed stamp ideas include storks and rattles. Alternately, wrap tea lights in footprint-stamped gift bags.
