How baby shower favors have changed over the years

A baby shower is a special occasion celebrating mom-to-be and her baby. For a special party, special momentos are handed out to guests as a small gesture of thanks for coming to the shower. Over the years baby shower souvenirs have evolved. Regardless of the time, these small thank you gifts have always been unique in their own way.

The number of favor options have certainly increased over the years. Chocolates and candles were the few options you could have found. Now you can find anything from notepads to maple syrup to coffee. The list just keeps on growing!

Personalization is easier today. You don’t have to pay a fee for personalization anymore. Other than worrying about text character limits it’s really easy to customize favors. There’s no need to pass on personalized labels for your guests' keepsakes in an effort to save money. Today personalized labels come separate from the items themselves; you affix the labels to the favors yourself. This is an effort to cut costs that would normally be passed on to you and to save on processing time.

Designs have changed over the years as well. Classic icons, such as baby blocks or prams, are still available but now you can also find modern & trendy designs. Not only have the graphics changed, but the colors have too. Pastels have given way to bold colors, metallic foils and patterns. Today you can combine colors, graphics and patterns in such a way that you can create dozens of different combinations without creating the same keepsake twice.

DIY favors no longer mean an organza bag filled with potpourri or candy. DIY favors today look professionally done with personalized labels and interesting boxes or containers. Vintage jars, such as candy shop jars or mason jars, are all the rage now. These unique containers can be filled with candy, or you can send your guests home with spices to cook or bake with, loose tea to relax with or bath salts. They’ll definitely remember the baby shower when they use your creative gift.

At showers with many guests it is common to display the party favors at each place setting. For smaller showers it is common to display favors where guests can easily access them before they leave, such as by the door. This really hasn't changed much over time.
