A baby shower is a party in which parents receive gifts for their expected child or born child. This days due to new ideas, concepts, themes, games, and changes in etiquette or culture some people prefer to hold showers after the birth of the baby. Traditionally, a baby shower is held only for the mother-to-be, and only women attend.
Do you remember going to birthday parties as a little kid, I guess you will! You always came home with a goodies bag. Sometimes it would contain sweet, candy, bubbles or a pinwheel. It was so fun to go to someone else’s birthday and come up with a little present for yourself.
Bring a present , get a present are traditional activities that are common at baby showers.. But choosing the right gifts for the shower party can be challenging considering that there are so many choices when it comes to choosing party favors for the baby shower that it can often be overwhelming.
We still get to do that as grown-ups , only now we call them “favors.” It sounds much more dignified, don’t you agree,
Generally, shower party events is center on gift-giving, hence it will be a nice gesture to have something that your guests can take home with them after the festivities are finished. If your shower will be like most, you’ll probably play some silly games such as baby shower bingo, guess the baby food flavor: guests have to taste-test several flavors of baby food and try to identify them, other games include a diaper throw game, and the diapers have candies or chocolate stuff etc. No game would be complete without prizes or favors.
But no one likes to leave empty handed. You should have some small favors for everyone to take home, whether or not they’ve won a game. How about a little tin candle with a custom label that reads “Your friendship lights my day. Thank you for bringing sweet joy and fulfillment to my family. Thanks for being part of my special day”,
Almost everyone likes chocolate. Little boxes of chocolate that read, “You’re so sweet. Thanks for coming to my baby shower.” Or a little package of nuts wrapped in tulle, “You’re nuts. But that’s why we’re friends , thank you for coming to my shower, thank you for making my shower special.”
Lotion is always a good little favor for women. Be careful not to get something too fragrant , as some people are bothered by strong scents. The truth is that it doesn’t really matter what you offer as a favor. It’s a small token of your appreciation for the time your friends devoted to celebrate your baby.
I will say this; your favor should be something they can use. Even it is it s small bud vase with dried flowers from your garden. When deciding what you’ll have for little favors, try to think of something unique but inexpensive and “What is not going to end up in the trash as soon as they leave,”
Perhaps you could give your guests a small gift booklet and inscribe something sweet on the inside cover: “I appreciate your wisdom and support of my new baby.” Or “Thanks for all times I’ve cried on your shoulder, I appreciate you.” Or if you don’t feel very sentimental how about simply: “Thanks for coming to my baby shower. Thank you for bringing sweet joy and fulfillment to my family.
Baby shower favors don’t have to be anything expensive, fancy, but something to show your appreciation to your guest for being part of your special day. Nothing would comes close to ending this unique and special occasion than to have baby shower favors that would reflect the high spirits of gladness and joy of all the people who came to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the new or born baby.
