Planning a bridal shower? Bridal showers can be overlooked amid all the planning of your wedding day, but it’s a fun opportunity to have a laid-back gathering before the big day. 

Bridal showers are typically a few months before the wedding day and is typically when the couple receives a lot of their gifts. And when your guests come bearing gifts it’s hard to resist getting them something in return.

Here are a few fun and creative ideas for bridal shower favors:

6 Bridal Shower Favors

When getting bridal shower favors, it’s helpful to think about getting something that you like and your guests can enjoy as well. You may choose to give something that is local to where you live or are getting married, a handcraft gift to show your gratitude, or a special treat that guests can enjoy post-event. 

Wildflower packets

Perfect for the eco-friendly couple, wildflower packets are a great option if you’re trying to cut down on waste. Wildflowers are easy to plant and fun to watch sprout into beautiful blooms. This is a great option for a bridal shower gift in the spring. 

Mini honey jars 

Mini honey jars are a cute gift option that is also practical and easy to use. Honey is a crowd-pleaser and can be used in baking, to sweeten tea, or to spread on toast. It’s also great for all ages!

Handcrafted soaps

Treat your guests to a spa-like experience at home with the gift of a handcrafted artisan soap. Handcrafted soap is not only practical, but typically very beautiful! Choose a scent that can be universal or have a few different options for guests to choose from based on their taste. 

Candles

Candles are another crowd favorite for bridal shower favors. Just like soaps, you can choose one scent or several for your guests to choose their favorites. Handpoured or locally made candles are the extra special touch. 

Succulents

Do you love plants? Mini succulents are a great gift for your bridal shower. These plants are easy to grow and just need a lot of sunlight. Share some directions with your guests so they can keep them alive for years to come.

Packets of tea

Give the gift of calm to your bridal party guests with some tea. Give personalized tea bags or loose leaf tea for guests to remember you when they are unwinding. This is an especially great option for bridal showers in the fall or winter.
