The bridal shower is a time for friends to get together and celebrate the bride the upcoming celebration that will be one of the most important days of her life. Traditionally the bridal shower is hosted by the maid of honor, but today many bridal parties each take their turn in planning out aspects of the party. No matter who is doing the planning, someone needs to remember the bridal shower favors. These favors are passed out to guests for coming to the bridal shower and are your way of thanking them. If you are looking for unique bridal shower favor ideas, here are a few things to get you started:


Cookie and Edible Favors

Cookie favors are a tasty and fun treat for a bridal shower that everyone always loves. Purchase premade cookie favors in the shape of boustiers, flowers, hearts or monogram letters.  Pair your cookies in a bag with Jordan almonds, pecan pralines or colorful fortune cookies. Don’t forget to include the chocolates for your bridal showers!  After all, who says no to chocolate? Give guests decorative bags full of gourmet coffee beans. For the guests that do not drink coffee, include bags of scented teas or ice tea mixes.

If you do not have the time to order cookies, you can give away cookie cutter sets as favors. These cute sets can include hearts and other shapes for your guests to take home and use in their own baking.

Boxes and Trinkets

It is traditional to have some fun bridal shower games at the party to get everyone involved and enjoying themselves. The winners of those games should receive a specialty prize such as a trinket or jewelry box. Purchase elegant jewelry boxes made of porcelain or trinket boxes that give the winner something to store their rings and earrings in. These truly unique Be Boxes in a Crest Design have vintage style photos inside that say Be Hip or Be Mine.

Soap and Bath Stuff

A bridal shower typically has all female guests, therefore bath items are more than appropriate. Pamper your guests at the bridal shower with custom soaps or romantic floral votive candles for a luxurious bath. Give each guest a basket full of bath oils, soap, bath salts, a loofa or sponge and a facial mask. If you have the extra funds, include gel eye masks and scented candles so that your guests can go home and give themselves the full spa treatment.

Flowers and Plants

For the bride that is looking to go green with her wedding, go green with the bridal shower favors as well. Try giving guests a plant or flower that they can grow at home. Place flowers or plants in a decorative pot and label it with the date and name of the bridal shower so guests do not forget where they got it from. If the majority of your guests are culinary enthusiasts, you can give them potted herbs to grow. Some of the easier herbs to grow are thyme, chives, oregano and basil.

Other Favors

Notable bridal shower favor ideas can also include items such as key chains, picture frames and pens. Hand out key chains engraved with the bridal shower date or simply find decorative key chains that match the personality of each guests to give them something even more personal.
