There are hundreds of printable cookie envelopes available online where you can download a template for a cookie envelope. Not only does it look great, it’s also delicious. You just can’t go wrong with a cookie. To personalize the envelope, you can add a sticker to it with the first letter of your last name or the potential baby name.

Mini Lunch Boxes

These are great simply because of the versatility they provide. You can make tiny faux lunch boxes and fill them up with personalized items if it’s a small gathering. Cookies, candies, and crackers are always a welcome addition to the mini lunch box.

Candy Cones

Not to be confused with candy canes, you can make a great looking cone shaped envelope to hold candy. Caramel is always a great idea to give in bulk and tastes delicious. Top it off with a memorable label thanking your guests for being there for you.

Personalized Tote Bags

This is one of our favorite picks for baby shower presents. A personalized tote bag will not only hold the memory of the event but can also be used multiple times after the baby shower. This is truly a favor that can be used over and over again.

Nail Polish Favors

These are great for an all female baby shower. They are especially great for a gender reveal or a themed party. Find some great pink nail polishes if the mommy is having a girl and a blue one if there’s a boy on the way. Top it off with a cute label and you’re done. This favor isn’t only great to give, it is extremely easy to make.

Hand Sanitizer

This may seem strange at first but consider all the gorgeous bottles that are in the market now. Not only do they look pretty, they also smell divine. Top these off with a label or color coordinate them with your theme and you’re done.

Recipe Jar

Keeping in line with all things sweet, you can always give your guests a mason jar and fill it up with the delicious ingredients to making cookies or cupcakes. These look great and are terribly easy to make even if your friends don’t know the difference between a wok and a frying pan. You can also print out custom labels that can guide them through the recipe process.


Candles in jars are another great idea that you could go for. You can never have enough candles and they can think of you and your baby every time they light it up to spread the aroma around your house.
What’s great about favors is that they are extremely easy to make and give. You can be as creative with them as you want or you can simply go the easy way and have store bought candy do the work for you. Either way, it’s your day and you need to share it with your loved ones in the best way possible.
