Ideas for baby shower favors

As more baby showers are becoming less about the women and more about the family, men are now attending baby showers. This means the need for shower favors that cater to both genders is increasing. The best baby shower typically has favors that are unique, have a functional use, or both. Fortunately, several options for baby shower favors are available that meet these requirements.

Personalised and functional favors

Kitchen gifts
Baby shower gifts that are functional gifts that can often be used in the kitchen. Sets of wine glasses with a design and wording of your choice are available through many online retailers. They may also be coupled with personalised wine stoppers or openers. Egg timers, cheese graters, whisks, and sugar tongs are other kitchen appliances that may be personalised for baby showers. Items such as these make suitable baby shower gifts not only because they are functional and gender neutral, but also because they are items that are more likely to be used by the shower guest long after the event. Food gifts
Other gift similar gift ideas are personalised jars of organic honey or jam. Guests are able to enjoy the food item at a later time and still use the jar for anything else they would like afterward. The downfall of a gift that includes a food item is the risk of food allergy. A non-food favor might be advisable if you would like to use such a favor.

Gifts that grow

Plants gift
Popular among people who are interested in being green would be a unique baby shower gift such as a plant. Seed packets that have a photo of your choice and baby shower details on the front can be ordered or made on your own. The seeds can be for a fruit like strawberries, or any other garden plant. Other options may be small pots of planted seed or sprouts. They can be flowers or even herbs for a more gender neutral option. Well appreciated
A gift such as this is appreciated for an unlimited amount of time as the guest is able to watch their gift grow into a beautiful plant, herb, or flower. The variety of seeds available mean that a guest can plant their gift into their own garden, or keep it anywhere in their home if they have a smaller abode.
