Everyone loves a good baby shower. They are always a fun and exciting celebration welcoming a new life in the world, and should be remembered always. If you’re the lucky gal that gets to plan and throw the baby shower, finding a wonderful keepsake baby shower favor is perhaps the best job of all. Everyone will love a creative gift as a memento of this special occasion.

Humor is always well-appreciated amongst any group. A funny baby shower favor should also be practical, much like the “She’ll Soon See Her Feet Again” pedicure set with a pair of sandals. Pink and black designs are both feminine and appeal to any taste.

Cheese graters packaged with a pretty bow and see-through container will also bring a roar of laughter with the message “World’s Gratest Mom.” Every guest will use the gift in her kitchen, and even place it as a decorative item on her shelf.

Useful kitchen gadgets are always appreciated, including such shower favors as teapot timers. They can be both decorative and practical, and accompanied by a fun message stating “Baby is Brewing.” Everyone will hoot and holler over the witty gift tag that goes home with each and every guest.

Salt and pepper shakers may also be customized to create a functional kitchen tool as a baby shower favor. These are shaped like little baby chicks, and packaged in a box proclaiming they are “About to Hatch.” They can either be stored for safekeeping as a special memento, or used for their intended purpose while cooking and eating.

If you’d like to give a shower favor that is also a great baby gift, consider a mini-piggy bank for saving coins and bills. This “Li’l Saver” baby shower gift comes packaged with a black and white dotted bow, and is easily used by all of your guests after returning home.

Everyone also loves a great scented candle packaged in a pretty votive holder. These will provide hours of soothing light and pleasant aromas, and can also become a personalized baby shower gift. Etch or paint the holder with the baby’s initials or name for all the guests to remember this special occasion!

Baby showers always require food, and sometimes a full meal if you so desire. If this is the case, make part of your décor a take-home baby shower favor such as the placecards and holders. Little lamb holders claiming they are celebrating the “baaby” create a unique theme, are practical and fun, and are wonderful mementos of your special party.

Any one of these ideas presents a great way to package and give special baby shower favors that can also double as ideal baby shower gifts for the baby and mother-to-be. Creating these unique presents is perhaps the most fun of the entire shower planning process, so throw caution to the wind and never hesitate to try something new and memorable.
