  • You shouldn't, the hostess should do that. I've never received a favor from a baby shower.

  • I've never received or given party favors at a baby shower. I have given and received hostess gifts. If you have a lot of hostesses you can give small things like candles, or if you only have one or two you can give them spa/manicure gift certificates.

  • My MIL bought small picture frames and put my son's full name and a really nice baby boy poem with the meaning of his name at the bottom. It was really nice because it's something that can be reused. Her daughter just had a shower and she (MIL) bought flower pots with seeds and it had a meaning about a new baby and new life. Give something that people can use or else you just waste your money.

  • At the card or party shop there are all kinds of little favors that you can give out. I had matching plates, cups, napkins, shower record book, and favors. The favors were tiny boxes that when you folded them up they looked like a little stroller, and I also bought tiny rattles that actually rattled (about the size of a nickel) and attached one to each box. Inside the box I put an assortment of candy.

  • I went to a shower where the hostess gave out small pink and blue Yankee candles. It was very cute, but unnecessary. Are you giving yourself a shower?
