There are lots of baby shower party favor ideas to choose from but you may want to choose a favor that will be appreciated and not tossed in the trash the minute a guest goes home. It is good to bear in mind the following before deciding on a baby shower party favor:
Theme- coordinating the party favors with the theme will compliment to party. There are lots of themed favors you can purchase online or be creative and put together your own themed favors. Themed favors will serve as the perfect reminder of the party to guests.
Budget- Favors are suppose to be small keepsake to guests so do not feel you have to go out and purchase expensive favors for guests. Many cute and special items can be bought wholesale or cheaply at party stores.
Guests- Look at the guest list before selecting favors. While some favors can fit all types of guest, you want to be sure that the favor will be appreciated by everyone. For instance if guys are invited go with small delicious food treats that will be enjoyed by both sexes instead of little candlesthat they may look at with less enthusiasm.
Usefulness- Do not purchase favors that you do not foresee guests using. There are party favors that are really cute to look at but their only purpose will be to collect dust on a shelf or see the inside of a trashcan as soon as they are taken home.
