Trying to select baby shower favors that your guests will love can be a challenge.
Favors are an expression of gratitude to those who have taken the time to share the occasion.
When it comes to picking out favors it is not about how much you spend but the thought.
Though favors are a part of most baby showers, most people attending a shower are not expecting anything.
Baby Shower Favors That Your Guests Will Love
1. Succulent Rosette Favors In Tin Buckets
Depending on what time of year it is, potted, perennial plants are always a good choice when choosing baby shower favors that your guests will love.
Succulents work well and can be made into an attractive arrangement.
They are easy to care for and last a long time.
2. Greenery Baby Shower Candle Favors
Candles are always a good option since there are so many ways they can be decorated. The containers can be a keepsake after the candle is used.
Mason jars, vases, antique colored glass bowls all make for a great presentation.
If you are good with crafts and better yet familiar with candlemaking you can add a scent.
Even though there are many candle shops and various types of candles readily available, they can be a great favor with your unique design.
Get ideas from popular brands. Many homemade candles are inspired by the Rae Dunn font.
With the resources you can use to create digital art, the sky is the limit.

Better yet, why not accompany your soap selection with a Llama? Llamas are the 2020-animal-of-the-year or at least a close second to the magical unicorn.
