Having a baby shower for a friend or family member who is having a baby can be great fun. It is always exciting to celebrate a new baby and to shower the mother-to-be with cute and useful baby gifts. While a baby shower is great fun, the expense can get rather large for the ones hosting the shower. One way to cut down on costs for a baby shower is to make the baby shower favors yourself or even get together with other friends or relatives of the Mom-To-Be make them together. This can be loads of fun and you can get to know people you may not have known that well. Not only is this a great way to keep the cost down, but it is also a wonderful way to show your talent and other's talent and provide unique baby shower favors. The following are several ideas for homemade baby shower favors that will have your guests smiling with pleasure.

  • Cookies

Homemade cookies make great baby shower favors and they are easy to make and tasty to eat. There are a variety of different cookies that you might find suitable for the occasion. You can bake mini chocolate chip cookies and send each of your guests home with a decorated bag of them. Another idea is to make cutout cookies in baby shapes such as bonnets, bottles and bassinettes. You can find baby shower cookie cutters at many craft stores or cooking stores. After you make the cutout cookies, you can then decorate them in either blue or pink, depending on the sex of the baby. Almost everyone enjoys good cookies, so these party favors are sure to be a big hit.

  • Scented Soaps

Women enjoy scented soaps almost as much as they enjoy scented candles. You can make beautiful scented soaps in either pink or blue and wrap them in tulle and tie with a ribbon for a great party favor. Even if you have never made soap before, you can go to a craft store and get soap making kits for the occasion. Depending on the size, you may want to give each person more than one. Scented soaps are easy to make and they are relatively cheap to make as well.

  • Candy Containers

Another great idea for homemade baby shower favors is unique candy containers. You can find containers that go along with the baby theme like baby bottles and baby food jars and then you can fill them up with candy such as m&m?s, gumdrops or jellybeans. After you fill them with candy, you can decorate them with pastel colored ribbons and you will have cute party favors in just a matter of minutes.

  • Baby Food Jar Candles

Many women enjoy candles and making candles is relatively easy. All you need is some scented wax from a local craft store and material for the wick. Using baby food jars are excellent for making these candles. You can simply place the wick in the baby food jar, heat the wax and then carefully pour the heated wax into the jar, being careful to keep the wick centered. It only takes a couple hours for the candles to cool and then all you need to do is decorate the baby food jars. You can decorate them with fabric on the jar lids and ribbons around the jars. Baby themed pictures also make great decorations on these candles as well.

  • Seedlings

A great homemade baby shower party favor that will celebrate new life is a seedling. You can purchase seeds of a plant or flower and plant them a couple weeks ahead of time to get them growing. Cute containers for the seedlings are baby food jars and small baby bottles. If you want the favors to be a bit more elegant, you can plant the seeds in beautiful wine glasses and tie a pretty ribbon around them stem. Decorated mugs also are great for planting these seedlings. This kind of party favor gives your guests something to remember and cherish from the baby shower.

When you are making homemade baby shower gifts, make sure to remember that it is the thought that really counts. Whether your candles look perfect or your cookies are a little crooked, your guests will love having a memento of the baby shower. Homemade gifts are easy, cheap and fun. It will be a great way to help the Mom-To-Be and all of your guests have a great time.
