Favors are a way to say thank you to guests who attend the shower for a new baby. When your guest of honor is expecting twins, you will want to choose favors that celebrate the impending birth of two babies. Making your own favors helps to keep the costs low for the shower and allows you to create something spectacular for the baby shower.
Candies and Cookies
Candies are a common item to include in baby shower favors. You can create homemade favors with candies almonds in pink and blue colors. Make small baskets with a Noah’s Ark theme and fill with pairs of animal shaped cookies for favors. You could also make pairs of animal shaped lollipops in the same theme to represent the twins. You can use the Noah’s Ark theme for the party decorations and invitations and cut your own ark shaped cookies for the favors.
Candles, Soaps and Magnets
Homemade candles can be an inexpensive baby shower favor. Look for candle molds in the shape of baby bottles, booties or children’s blocks and make pairs of the candle for the favor. Color the candles with pink and blue. You may also use the candle molds to create pairs of soaps to hand out to guests at the baby shower. Choose a baby powder fragrance for the soaps and tie the pairs together with ribbons for a special gift for your guests. After the shower is over, you will have molds available to make baby shower favors in the future for an even lower cost.
Molds are also available to use with plaster, which allow you to create refrigerator magnets to give out as baby shower favors. Choose teddy bears, pea pods or baby booties for the mold, paint and attach adhesive backed magnets to the design for your baby shower favors.
The pea pod theme is a popular one for twin baby showers. Inexpensive candles, soaps and magnets decorated with pea pods are a good choice for baby shower favors for twins. Make your own pea pods with green felt and jelly beans for an inexpensive and creative baby shower favor. Use the pea pod theme for the decorations and invitations to the shower as well.
