Baby Shower Favor Ideas Your Guests Will Love

Baby Shower Favors are a nice way to thank your guests for participating in the baby shower.

For instance, growing up in southern Louisiana, I've never received a party favor from a baby shower.

There are no rules when it comes to baby shower party favors. Be creative and try to match the theme or mood of the baby shower if you can. Favors can be fun, frivolous, expensive, elegant, practical, or delicious. It's whatever you decide.
