Baby showers are so much fun and a great way to celebrate the upcoming birth of a new baby. I love baby shower whether it is for me or someone else. I’ve even helped put together a few baby showers and if I have learned one thing, it’s that baby showers aren’t cheap! You have to factor in food, decorations, games, prizes and party favors. All of these costs really start to add up but there are some really awesome cheap baby shower favor ideas out there. With a little creativity and research you will be able to come up with the perfect baby shower favors on any budget.
Make Your Own Favor Tags
You have probably seen those adorable gift tags that go on the baby shower favors. The gift tags can really make a simple favor unique and special. However, those cute little tags cost a lot of money if you have them customer ordered. Instead of ordering tags for your baby shower favors, make them yourself.
You can make your own baby shower favor tags using Photoshop, Microsoft or even a free online program called PicMonkey. I made a quick sample of a baby shower party favor tag using PicMonkey. Keep in mind this was done very quickly, but feel free to take your time and really make it unique. There are so many fun things you can do using PicMonkey. If you are feeling really ambitious you can even design your own baby shower invitations.
