Women tend to like nice-smelling things.  The last two showers I attended, the favors were either a travel-sized bottle of scented lotion from Bath & Body works or a small individual-sized scented candle from Yankee Candle in a glass pot.

You can just tie ribbons around them or put them in tulle bags.

We were going to have a tea party until we had too many people for our tea house, but we kept the theme.

I love flea markets and yard sales so I picked up a bunch of tea cups.  In each one we put tea bags with our names on them, individually packed tea cookies, some mints, this really cute honey bear on a stick, wrapped it with tulle, tied a ribbon on the top with a little thank you tag. They looked great!

We are having custom soap made with the help of a seller on Etsy. All the soap will be the same flavor and will be inidividually wrapped with the text "A shower gift for you" as well as our names and the date of the shower.

Edible favors are never a bad idea! There are so many cute cookie designers out there who seem to be able to personalize anything to fit into a theme. I also received measuring cups in heart shapes at a recent shower. I thought they were adorable.

We are having a destination wedding (there must be an acronym for that??) so I am considering some sort of gc or something that she can use doing the trip.  & For the shower hosted by my Future Mother-In-Law I am thinking something cheesy Mother of the Groom gear, she loves cheese ;-).  Otherwise, the ubrella gift is cute, w/the card saying "I hope your next shower is as great as mine"

My future sister in law (she is 21, adorable) took over the favors for my shower.  They will be cupcakes from a great bakery in Chicago.  I loooooove cupcakes, so I’m completely delighted.

When I was a bridesmaid for a friend and in charge of the favors for the shower, I got those shapes that you can plant. They have seeds in them. It was this one: http://www.beau-coup.com/personalized-plantable-seed-favors.htm. I did the blue (one of her colors) cake, then I put them in little baggies with some wedding type confetti and some candies. Not sure if anyone actually planted them, but it was a big hit. =) Not really that creative either, but practical and useful!

My BMs got cute patterned take out boxes and put candies and a $5 giftcard to Starbucks in them.  Who doesn’t love starbucks!  Luckily my guest list was only 11 girls so it wasn’t that much money for them to split.  🙂  I thought it was a great idea though!  The guy at Starbucks must have hated them though.  heheheh

For one shower I helped throw, we gave out a heart-shaped cookie cutter with a card tied to it. On one side of the card was a "recipe for love" and on the other side was a recipe for sugar cookies. I saw the idea on one of the favor websites, but just did it all myself. The whole thing was tied in a cute cellophane bag with pretty ribbon. We also made hershey kiss roses (you wrap two kisses together with colored cellophane and use floral wire and fake leaves to make it into a rose; let me know if you need more details). And another bridesmaid made "tulips" out of votive candles. She wrapped a votive in pretty paper, and she had cut the paper edge to look kind of like petals. And then the same thing, use a floral pick as the "stem" and some fake leaves, and wrap the whole thing in floral tape.

 At another shower I helped throw, we did a tea favor. We gave each guest two nice teabags (the Lipton pyramid kind) and we had taken off all the tags and replaced them with custom tags with the bride’s name/shower date and a cute stamp of a teacup. We bought honey straws from a honey farm I found online (they come in great flavors, too!), and also made colored sugar-coated spoons. You use piping gel (got mine from Wilton’s from Michaels), dip a plastic spoon in it, dip it in sugar (you can use colored sugar from the store or make your own with food coloring), and let it dry. Wrap the spoon in a little plastic bag that they sell for the purpose of wrapping lollipops (in the candy aisle at Michaels) and tie with ribbon. We put the whole lot into a little gift bag with a tage that said, "Love is brewing."

 At a shower I went to this year, it was a travel-themed shower, and they gave away little plastic luggage tags. They weren’t super-high quality, but they were cute and a good reminder of the shower.

Best shower favor I received was for a dw: a little white pail with a clear sticker with bride and groom’s names & date on one side, and a sticker on the other of a starfish, pail wrapped in tulle.  Inside was filled with Guylan shell chocolates – yum.
