Everyone loves food. Especially sweets!

So, make your shower favors memorable by baking something special like homemade cookies or fudge.

But, if you don't have time to bake anything, you can use bite-size fruit, like cherries, grapes or dried fruit.

Other Bite-size food ideas

  • Salted nuts
  • Jordan almonds
  • Hershey's kisses
  • Custom M&M's
  • Flavored jelly beans
  • Chocolate-covered pretzels

Container Ideas

Try to choose a container that will go with the theme of your shower to put your favors in.

Some ideas are:

  • Chinese takeout containers
  • Tiny paper sacks
  • Shot glasses
  • Pillboxes
  • Plastic martini glasses or champagne glasses
  • Tiny straw baskets

Tie a ribbon around each gift and attach a computer generated 'Thank You' card to each favor. Include the names of the bride and groom and the wedding date on the card.
