Baby Shower Favors

When deciding on your shower favors, try and think of something that all your guests will use/like, something basic but dress it up in a creative way.

1. Polish off your shower with these adorable Nail Polish Favors! What girl doesn’t want more nail polish? You can really choose any color you like but I think this idea to do blue for a boy’s shower and pink for a girl’s is super cute and complements the decor.

  5. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I’m impressed!
    Very useful info specifically the last part 🙂 I care for such information a
    lot. I was seeking this certain info for a very long
    time. Thank you and best of luck.

  6. What a sweet idea with the nail polish favors! Can anyone tell me where you purchased theO O.P.I. nail polish?? I’ll need abour 50 for my daughters baby shower. How and where did you purchase the polish and did you pay a bulk price or wholesale price from a vendor? Need info as soon as possible.

  7. I love the hand sanitizer idea! where I can I purchase those exact tags?

    • Hi Michelle! Unfortunately those exact tags are not for purchase. The blogger who made them said she just ran paper through her printer and used a hand stamp. It would be easy to make your own, or you could check on Etsy – there are lots of designers who will take custom orders!
