When you attend a baby shower, what kind of favor is your favorite to get as a guest?

Mints? (especially if there's lots of food at the shower that could make your breathe kicking like no other)
Chocolate Lollipop?
Hershey Kisses/Minibars?
Jelly beans?
Candles?
Bath Salts?
Bags of Tea?
Bags of Popcorn?
Bookmarks?

That's all I can think of right now.

I forgot to mention that I am asking this question because I'm planning my SIL's baby shower for late next month! And, I want to give guests something they'd actually like to have.

I also found how to make these Flower Pens! I think most people would like to get one and they are EASY and relatively cheap to make.


Or, you can add flowers to magnets (to add the flower to a pic on the refridgerator, a metal filing cabinet, etc...). Again, cheap and easy!

I've never actually been to a baby shower, but I like the pens and the jellybean ideas.

The flower pens ended up being much cheaper than I had expected they would cost! Yay! I made 14 tonight and need to make another 14 by the end of this weekend for SIL's baby shower.

I didn't put tags on mine. I'm keeping them in two flower pots as centerpieces.

I think I like edible favors the best, like chocolate or cookies. But the pen is a great idea, too. I am all about useful things and a pen is definitely something people can use.

I love the flower pens! When I was an Avon rep, I would make them and spray them with perfume so they were samples too

We are doing thank you jars with pink jelly beans and ribbon around the top of the jar . That is just something we are giving everyone. We will have It's a girl hershey kisses in bowls so the candy aspect is covered. For gifts for the games I think my sister is getting candles or something. My sister is throwing it.

I was all set to say "anything edible" and leave it at that, but those flower pens are super cute! I'd love one of those and maybe some chocolates!

Super cute idea! I like it - the magnets would have been fun too. It's nice that you could save even more money though using the pens as the centerpieces.
