Giving a great baby shower means thinking of your guests at all times. These days, it’s not enough to give your baby shower guests good company, hospitality, and food. The most memorable showers include party favors to memorialize the occasion.

Custom baby shower cookies make great baby shower favors. Use a cookie cutter or knife to cut rolled cookie dough in “baby” shapes – rocking horses, ducks, teddy bears, baby carriages, onesies, and babies.

Another great custom cookie baby shower favor is a personalized fortune cookie. Guests get ordinary looking fortune cookies, but the messages inside are geared toward a baby shower theme. “We Are So Blessed” is one example of a personalized fortune cookie message.

If the mommy-to-be knows the sex of the baby, choose a pink or blue party favors, depending on whether the baby is going to be a girl or boy. Choose bath beads, soaps, mints, or candies in pink or blue, wrap them in matching mesh fabric and tie the bundle with a pink or blue ribbon.

Make sure that when you are planning baby shower favors, you will want to include the expectant mother in the process. She will probably know the guests well and will know what best to give them as baby shower favors.

If you have a lot of children that will be at the party as well as adults, you will want to think of them as well. Make sure that the baby shower favors will be child-friendly, or you could consider having a separate type of party favor for the children that will come to the party. This is where candy is the easiest, but you also want to make sure that the parents are okay with the children getting candy at the party.
