Popular Baby Shower Favors and Gifts

Baby Shower Favors

Baby shower favors are the perfect keepsake for both moms-to-be and baby shower guests. There are literally hundreds of potential baby shower favors. If you're not sure what baby shower favors will work best for an upcoming baby shower, consider purchasing one or more of the most popular types of baby shower favors:

Candles . Most women love candles: They can be used to bring a pleasant scent to a room or a home, or they can simply be displayed as attractive decorations, making candles one of the most popular baby shower favors. If you're creative and love trying new things, you can make your own candles. Or, you can choose from an eclectic range of candles at such online shops as Discount Baby Shower Favors. If the mom-to-be is whimsical and fun, opt for the Baby Bottle Candle, an adorable candle in a glass vase and capped with a pink or blue bottle cap. Alternately, if the mom-to-be prefers classic candles, you'll find that Calla Lily Gel Candle is simple yet stunning.

Soap . Soap is traditionally popular as a baby shower favor. If you've never seen soap used as a baby shower favor, you're probably imagining something boring and simple. Not so. Soap can be a fun and an attractive baby shower gift; the Scented Heart Soap Favor in Gift Box, for example, is heart-shaped soap that comes in a box, complete with a beautiful bow.

Frames . Every family, especially those with a newborn, wants to decorate their home with favorite photographs of family members. Traditional baby shower favors, frames remain as one of the top gifts to give to guests of a baby shower. Frames used for baby shower favors are often either blue or pink. But, even if you do not know the gender of the baby, you can still present guests with an attractive frame – like the Leather Frame Keychain in Sheer Organza Bag – that they can keep for years.

Baby Shower Gifts

Buying baby shower gifts is often a challenge, considering there are some items that are often popular but not practical baby shower gifts. Many agree that purchasing clothes, bottles, or pacifiers is simply not a good idea. Because all newborns are born at different weights and grow quickly, clothes are not a realistic gift. And, while bottles and pacifiers may seem ideal, babies generally have their own preferences for bottles and pacifiers.

Rather than risk giving a baby shower gift that will not or can not be used, opt for a baby shower gift that the parents-to-be and the newborn are certain to love:

Bathsets . Every baby needs bathed, making bath sets one of the most popular baby shower gifts. Popular gift sets, like the Finley the Frog Bath Time Gift Set and Tillie the Turtle Bath Time Gift Set, often include a wash cloth, a hooded towel, and terry cloth slippers. A bath set is an affordable, popular baby shower gift that new parents can use again and again.

Burping cloths . Every baby needs burped, making burping cloths a perennial favorite baby shower gift. You can generally find burping cloths in all colors, but the most popular are those that are pink and blue.

Booster pillow . A booster pillow still stands as one of the most popular baby shower gifts, and some can be used as both a sturdy pillow and a soft toy to cuddle. Some booster pillows, among them Bailey the Bunny Cashmere Soft Booster Pillow, also come with a growth chart, which allow mom and dad to chart their new little one's growth progress.
