Naturally, baby showers are first and foremost about giving a mom-to-be as many gifts as possible. She's going to need plenty of supplies when the little bundle of joy enters the world, and it's important that she's ready with clothes, diapers, toys and any other supplies she may need. But that doesn't mean that her loving friends and family should fall by the wayside! In fact, as the host, you can ensure that everyone leaves the party feeling great. The secret? Bags filled with wonderful goodies! Here are some ideas to help get your thinking on the right track.
You have plenty of options to choose from, whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Picking presents according to the gender is a fun way to mix things up a bit. For instance, if it's a boy, bubblegum cigar flavors are a cute way to mark the occasion - you can all stand around outside pretending to "smoke" them, talking about future plans for the baby.
You can easily find favors for a little girl, too! Personalized baby shower candy jars can be filled with delicious fruit candy and handed out at the end of the party. If you know what the baby's name will be, print it on the jar and you've got a truly unique favor that is sure to be enjoyed for years to come. Another delightful edible favor is a personalized Hershey's chocolate bar - you can print whatever you want on the label! If you'd like something a little different, you can always throw in some baby chick salt and pepper shakers - they're absolutely adorable, and you can bet they'll see plenty of use in the coming years, always reminding your guests about the great baby shower they attended.
Putting together a fun and memorable party isn't too difficult, but if you're looking for ways you can make it a truly unique experience, some nice party favors are a great way to start. After all, who doesn't love being given an unexpected present?
