13 Baby Shower Favors Guests Will Be Excited to Take Home
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.
