Purchasing party favours for a baby shower can be costly, especially when you're looking for one-of-a-kind items. However, you don't have to spend tons of money if you opt for making your own baby shower giveaways instead. With a little time and imagination, you can create simple baby shower favours that your guests will love.
Making your own loot bags for baby shower favours is simple. Select paper bags in the colour of your choice, found in most craft stores. Fill each bag with small items such as candy, pink or blue hand sanitiser, a small notebook, a small bottle of bubbles and stickers with a baby-shower-inspired theme. Make as many loot bags as needed and when each bag is full, fold the opening over and seal it with a sticker, or if the bag has handles, tie it with a ribbon.
Personalised Chocolate Bar
Create your own chocolate bar wrapper and give away personalised candy bars as a baby shower favour. The best kind of chocolate bar to use is a plain, flat chocolate bar such as Hershey's. Buy as many chocolate bars as you need and remove all of the paper wrappers, leaving the inner aluminium foil intact. Wrappers should measure approximately 4 7/16 inches by 4 1/4 inches and may be printed out or decorated by hand. Draw an image on the wrapper and include a message of your choice. Wrap the wrapper around the chocolate bar and use glue to hold it in place.
Bake your own cookies to give away as favours for a baby shower. You can bake any kind of cookie that you like such as oatmeal or chocolate chip, and package them individually in parchment paper sealed with a baby-shower-inspired sticker. If you like, you can bake plain sugar cookies and personalise each cookie using icing to create images of a pram or baby bottle. For something even simpler, use a cookie cutter to cut out baby-themed shapes and decorate them with icing.
Candy in a Bottle
This is probably the simplest baby shower favour that you can give to your guests. All you have to do is buy as many plastic baby bottles as you need and the candy of your choice. Remove the top from each bottle and fill it with candy. Use candy that matches your party's colour scheme, or go with pink candy for a girl and blue candy for a boy. Replace the tops and tie a nice ribbon around each rim. If you'd like, create personalised stickers for the bottles, with the guest of honor's name and the date of the shower.
