11 Pretty Homemade Bridal Shower Favor Ideas
Thoughtful gifts don't have to break the bank. These DIY bridal shower favor ideas are easy and beautiful ways to celebrate.
Vanilla Coffee Creamer
Hosting a brunch shower? Send guests home with this decadent vanilla coffee creamer. It’s simple to make, and best of all, it’s budget-friendly (like these other affordable bridal shower ideas). Pour your creamer into tiny jars and tie with a ribbon or personalized gift tag.
Send your guests home with a beautiful mini garden; no green thumb required. Succulents are easy to care for and look chic in just about any room in your house. (Here are the low-maintenance succulents we love.) Plant yours in a classic white pot or get creative and decorate each one.
Cinnamon Roll Macarons
It doesn’t get more elegant than a box of fresh-made Cinnamon Roll Macarons. If you love to bake, take on this new challenge and give your loved ones a shower favor to remember. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time and read through our macaron guide first!
Scented Bath Salts
Help your guests unwind after a long day with homemade bath salts. Go for a calming scent like lavender or opt for the couple’s wedding colors. Place them in a clear jar with a simple ribbon and let the relaxing commence.
Olive Oil Dip
When the happy couple is heading to Italy for their honeymoon (or even if they’re not!), embrace the theme with this savory favor. Gift each guest with a small bottle of olive oil and homemade seasoning. Perfect for cooking a Mediterranean meal or simply dipping fresh bread.
Watch the love grow long after the shower comes to an end with homemade seed bombs (or hand-made seed packets) for your guests to bring home. Fill them with seeds for wildflowers or kitchen herbs and attach growing instructions to each package.
Have a crafty bridesmaid in the bunch? Make your own coasters for guests to take home. Try a simple crocheted coaster or ask a friend with beautiful handwriting to write the couple’s names. This is a fun keepsake that we can all actually use.
Almond Tea Bread
As you’re hugging your guests goodbye, don’t forget to slip them a tasty snack for the drive home. Spend the day before the shower making mini loaves of Almond Tea Bread or work ahead as this bread freezes well.
Mini Champagne Bottles
It’s time to pop the bubbly! Celebrate your favorite bride-to-be with these adorable mini champagne bottles guests can take home. (Serve these bridal shower drinks at the party.) Place one in a clear bag with confetti or go all out and cover them in glitter. Or add a mini bottle of orange juice for a brunch shower.
Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
You just can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. Celebrate the happy couple with another perfect pair—peanut butter cups! These homemade candies are quick and easy to prepare and always go over well.
