Let’s face it, baby shower favors (well, party favors in general!) can be kind of…underwhelming. No one really needs a bag of sugared almonds, if we’re being honest. But gifting baby shower guests with something special doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated. Along with the rest of baby shower trends, baby shower favors have taken a turn for the chic in recent years.  

From lovely candles and hand-milled soap to lip balm and bath bombs, there are so many ways to let guests know how much you appreciate their presence. Here are some of our favorite baby shower favors.

Eos lip balms are the best because the packaging is so easy to manipulate into a fun, themed party favor (like these cute lip balm pacifiers!). Purchase printables like these from Etsy to create a DIY baby shower favor that guests will continue to use and enjoy for months.

Every woman needs a bag (or nine) to stash her lip gloss and other essentials. Make this baby shower favor extra special by personalizing them for each guest. This unique favor is great for a sprinkle or smaller baby shower where you can swing for slightly more spendy favors.

Mama might not be drinking at the moment, but that doesn’t mean her guests won’t love a vino-themed gift. Pretty bottle stops are an inexpensive baby shower favor that will always remind guests of your lovely event.
