Planning, preparation and decoration are all part of the baby shower credo. But it’s not easy covering all the bases and getting all the details right.
One part of the baby shower scene that is often neglected or not thoroughly prepared for are the keepsakes.
Favors are essential to the whole experience, these little take-home gifts help your guests remember the great experiences they had welcoming you into parenthood.
That being said, I’m sure you can agree that souvenirs can leave a lasting impression on your guests. You should make sure that baby shower favors are present and available at your upcoming baby shower.
Keepsakes You Will Absolutely Love!
There are basically two ways down this road, you can make your own baby shower souvenirs and favors or you can purchase them at online stores that cater to this kind of party.
In this article we are going to look at both of these options. First, I want to show you the hottest and most popular baby shower favors and souvenirs that I found online. I will also like provide you with some coupons and deals that can help you get these souvenirs at reasonable prices.
Second, I am going to reveal to you how you can make some adorable souvenirs at home. I will also help you relate your souvenirs to the overall theme of your baby shower.
How to make beautiful favors
Basically, anything can be a keepsake, it all depends on the context that the item is presented in and the emotional bond that goes with it. Since this is a baby shower it’s all about; adorableness and your theme.
For example, if your hosting a baby shower monkey theme then rubber ducky souvenirs wouldn’t be appropriate even though they’re super cute!
You are going to want something that is monkey related, like small monkey plush dolls, banana scented candles or small potted plants. All of these would make great monkey themed baby shower souvenirs. You can see that this is an easy concept to grasp.
A surefire way to make a great baby shower favor is by making cellophane party bags. These are great because:
- They’re not expensive to create
- They are easy to decorate
- You can fill them with theme related goods
- Everybody loves them
Just head on over to your local arts and crafts store and get cellophane bags that match with the color pattern of your overall theme. You’ll also want some decorating ribbons to tie up the bags with.
To get items for your party bags you should go to your local dollar store and find theme related items to fill your bags with. Fill them up with candy and/or small items such as scented candles.
Remember To Provide Keepsakes
As you can see there are a ton of ways you can get your baby shower souvenirs. You can create them yourself or you can purchase adorable reasonably priced pre-made favors online.
You can always do a combination of both as well, it’s really up to you. Just remember to align your souvenirs and favors with the rest of your baby shower theme, if you do that then everything should be smooth sailing!
