Bridal Shower Favor Ideas

The following are some suggestions presented by category.
Personalized Bridal Shower Favors
One of the most basic types of bridal shower favors are personalized boxes or bags with the bride and groom's names and/or the wedding date on them. Usually the maid of honor fills these favors with candy, like hershey kisses or jordan almonds. You could also fill them with the bride's favorite candy!
My maid of honor actually handed out save the date magnets at my bridal shower. Other favor options include personalized candy bars, shot glasses or candles. You could also get favors which correspond to the shower or wedding theme. Depending on the theme, favors could include mini bags of coffee or tea, cookie cutters, seashells, or plants and seeds.
Stuffed Animal Favors
Nothing is more endearing than a stuffed animal. So why not give them as bridal shower favors? These might be a good favor choice for a maid of honor who wants to keep the tone playful and fun. And the right kind of stuffed animal could fit perfectly into a bridal shower theme based on a location (like dolphins to represent the beach) or for a bride who loves her pet. And the guests will actually be able to use the stuffed animals, if not keeping them for themselves, giving them to a favorite kid.

And at this sort of bridal shower it's only natural for the maid of honor to select some very interesting lotions or even toys as prizes (for games like pin the *ahem* on the man!).
