Planning a baby shower is so much fun for the expectant mother and her friends and family. Not to mention, it is so much easier than planning a wedding. Since the guest list will be considerably smaller than your wedding guest list was, why not have a little fun and make your own baby shower favors? In fact, have a baby shower assembly party with some of your closest friends and family members where you can all get together and work on the baby shower favors. It’ll be a great experience for all the women to get together and talk about the beauty of being pregnant and all the wonderful experiences you, the new mother, are in for. When making your own baby shower favors you can keep it simple or you can get as creative and innovative as you’d like. The baby shower favors that you decide to make on your own can coincide with the theme of your baby shower or they can stand on their own. This article will give you a few ideas of baby shower favors that you can create on your own for this special day.
This first baby shower favor idea may take a bit of work but it is definitely a cool idea and you will have a lot of fun doing it. Why not make specialized theme soaps as a baby shower favor? To start off you will need to buy a soap mold and a cooking pot. Buy some bars of soap. You can add your personal touch by buying pink bars of soap for a baby girl or blue bars of soap for a baby boy. Melt the bars of soap down in your pot. Make sure that the stove is on a low flame. Once the soap is melted, pour it into the soap mold. Let the mold cool before removing the new party favor. You can go to a craft shop and find stamps in the shape of ducks or teddy bears that you can use to imprint on your new bars of soap.
Another fun idea that my sister actually did was that she created her own personalized candy wrappers for baby shower favors. Buy some of your favorite chocolate bars and remove the wrappers. Go on the computer and search for cute baby theme ideas such as teddy bears or pictures of newborn babies. Design a template that measures 6.5”x3.5” as this is the size of most candy bars. Have fun creating your own candy wrappers that are geared specifically towards you and your new baby.
If you like to bake, then this do-it-yourself baby shower party favor recipe is just up your alley. Go to the grocery market and buy some cookie batter mix. Next, stop off at the local craft store and pick up some cookie cutters that are in the shape of cute animals or baby-related images. Press the cookie cutters into the cookie dough and bake. You can top off the cookies with icing in different colors such as pink, blue or yellow.
These are just some of many ideas that you can use if you decide to make your own baby shower favors. The key to making baby shower favors is to have fun and let your creative juices flow.
