Last week we shared ideas for the practical and adorable Love +1 Onesies®-themed baby shower, including stationery, printable decorations, and cookies made from custom cutters. Today in our final Love +1 Baby Shower theme post we’re talking about my favorite parts of the baby shower. (Can you guess?) Of course, the favors and gifts!
The best gift at a Love +1 Shower is a onesie! The hard part will be choosing just one. With Etsy and Zazzle, the selection of creative infant bodysuits has skyrocketed. There are bodysuits with movie quotes, onesies® with bow ties, bodysuits with dinosaurs, nursery rhymes, and ….. well, you really must check our Pinterest board for more ideas!
Onesie cupcake from Embellished Babycakes
I think one of my favorite ideas is this clever gift from Embellished Babycakes. They’re simple onesies® wrapped elegantly as cupcakes! Make sure you have a plateful to display along with the other goodies on your dessert table. Such a cute addition to the decor, and of course a welcome gift for the mom-to-be. You can follow Embellished Babycakes on Facebook, too.
When I was sharing the custom cookies last week, I mentioned that sugar cookies make great favors. I baked up more just to show you what I mean (see below). You can use (or make) an extra large cutter just for special favors, decorate the cookies in your theme colors, then wrap each cookie individually in cello bags with coordinating ribbons. Makes a scrumptious favor!
If you aren’t up for making the cookies yourself, discuss your theme with a local bakery or find a cookier online to help! If you don’t know where to find one, join our Facebook page…I share cookies almost every day and there are so many really talented cookiers to choose from!
If you’re looking for a different kind of yummy favor, I just might be able to help you. My personal favorites are Lullaby lip balms with custom labels, or Babylove lip balms with custom tags and bows. I’m also partial to baby powder lotions with personalized Love +1 tags. See some of the options below and let me know if I can help you with your baby shower!
