Baby Shower Favors: DIY vs. Buying Online

Posted by

We've all seen the pins on Pinterest. You know the ones that look so awesome and make you think this DIY craft is going to be so easy. This applies to baby shower favors found on Pinterest too. There are some cool ideas there, but do you know what really goes into making your own favors? I've done my fair share of DIY crafts for parties, including invitations and favors. I've also heard from other people how DIY can be. Here is what I've learned based on my own experience and in speaking with others:

  • Buying supplies - It can be difficult to figure out exactly how much you need to make a certain number of favors. If you're not crafty you may need to factor in mistakes when figuring out how much you need in supplies. You may find yourself in mid-production only to realize you need more materials. Or, you may have overestimated how much you needed & find yourself going to the store to return excess items.
  • Cost - When most people think of DIY, they're assuming lower cost. This may not be true. Given the number of guests, how detailed the finished favors are (and therefore how much you need per favor) and if you make mistakes your ideal favor cost can easily go from $1 per favor to $2, $3 or even $4 per favor. That is definitely not a bargain. And what about the cost of gas to get to and from the craft stores, especially if you need to go more than once.
  • Time - This project may take you more time than anticipated whether you're crafty or not. Add that onto all the other tasks you need to complete for the baby shower and it leads to stress. Who needs that?

If you still want to try your hand at DIY baby shower favors that's cool. Just keep the things I mentioned in mind.
