There is no more traditional type of favor for a celebration than a picture frame and the miniature that accompanies it. Yet, it's still a popular choice to this day and the sheer amount of choices that you have as to colors and styles will ensure that it will be popular for a long time to come!
It's a great way to give guests a chance to display their favorite pictures while using a reminder of the great time they had at your baby shower. Of course, since a picture frame is very personal you may be worried that what you choose to give away won't “go with” the recipient's décor. However, many of the decorations nowadays are very eclectic and this is a rather sentimental gift, so you needn't worry that it will be tucked away without it being used!
Just keep in mind that you should choose your gift based on the
people that you are inviting to your baby shower. For example, if
your guests are all your mothers, then it would be great to give
out a very baby themed frame like one in the shape of a onesie,
carriage, or a rocking horse. These frames would be natural homes
for the babies that they have. If you can, it would be nice to choose
the colors according to the gender of their children, so you don't
have to worry about it being appropriate. Or you could play safe
and easy and just choose white!

A beautiful combination would be a miniature brag book of a photo
album with a picture frame as a cover. Anybody would love to be
able to fill this up, child or no child. It's an appropriate gift
that would be happily accepted by anyone.

If you veer towards the more traditional, then you could choose
the classic silver frames. From the usual rectangular, oval, and
hearts now come more unusual shapes like swans, teddy bears, and
ballerinas. These would look very pretty either in the bedroom or
in the living room, depending on the type of border that you choose.
There are also more modern styles as well, with cut-work metal making
it more linear than fluffy. These would be more city-slicker than

The metal frames could seem rather cold to some people, though.
That's where resin steps in. These frames are highly eclectic, with
lots of varying styles that can suit almost any interior. Taking
the place of the delicate ceramic frames of old, these types give
the same sense of fragility while being more sturdy than anyone
would dream of.

Varying from the flirty, girly types that are embellished with
beads, sparkles, and feathers, they can also be sweet when decorated
with rubber duckies, teddy bears, or other mementos of childhood.

Just remember, it may be better to place a little poem or story in the picture frame instead of a picture itself. Some recipients do like to change what is displayed and unless you are not going to be offended by having your child's ultrasound portrait exchanged with one of the recipient's children (or dog, as one story went), you would do well to avoid choosing something that would cause ill feelings in the future.
