1. Personalized Water Bottles

Design your guests a personalized water bottle with a picture or note from the couple. It’s reusable and perfect for after the wedding, too. Your guests will be able to use this on hikes, at work, and anywhere that they want to stay hydrated. It’s practical and unique, and of course cute!

2. High Tea

Buy individual teacups with fun designs and put different types of tea packets in them. Let guests choose a teacup and tea before they leave the shower. For additional detail, match a teacup with a corresponding type of tea. For morning tea, use bright yellow teacups, and use dark blue teacups for nighttime.

3. Beauty Secrets

Set up a counter full of beauty items, preferably those that the bride loves. Give each guest a fancy gift bag, and let them choose a set number of items from the counter. Make sure to supervise, so that all of your guests can choose something they want. You can also ask your makeup artist if they can provide samples of products for you and your guests. That way, each guest can try out a different makeup brand than they’re used to. 

4. Miniature Garden

Buy a mini planting pot for each guest, fill it with gardening soil and plant different types of herbs. Display the herb package in front of each pot so guests can make a choice. Alternatively, succulents are another trendy plant that can easily be used instead. These fun, hardy plants will be an easy and decorative favor that your guests will love bring home. 

5. Personal Recipes

With the RSVP card, ask each guest to write down their favorite recipe. Compile these recipes along with the bride’s favorite recipes into a personal mini-cookbook. As the guests leave, hand them a copy. These can be made easily with Microsoft Word and printed out beforehand. To make it extra special, include a picture of the recipe as well. Be sure to write the names of those who provided each recipe to make it memorable.

6. Summer Toppings

This is good for any season since ice cream weather is always around the corner. Hand out jars full of popular ice cream toppings like sprinkles, marshmallows and chocolate shavings. Ice cream cones or gift cards to ice cream shops work great as well. Include some fun tips on how to make the best sundaes or recipes on making your own ice cream.

7. Cookie Treat

Bake cookies and package them in little party favor bags. Attach a tag with the recipe to the bag. If you have a larger bridal shower guest list, look at prices of cookies at your local bakery. This way, if you’re running short on time, you don’t have to stress about making your own cookies. Additionally, mix and match flavors so that your guests get to try a little of everything. 

8. Chocolate Truffle

Buy or make some chocolate truffles. Make sure to freeze them until you’re ready to hand them out. Get creative with the container that you present the truffles to your guests in – try to go along with the theme, season or colors of the bridal shower.

9. Handmade Fortunes

You can bake your own fortune cookies or pay a crafty person on Etsy to do it for you at a reasonable price. Come up with a variety of messages, maybe even one for each guest. You can also have guests write their favorite quotes or advice tips before the bridal shower on their RSVP. With these, you can have personalized messages for your guests. 

10. Chocolate Treats

Almost everyone loves chocolate, making it a perfect edible option for your guests. Dip strawberries, pound cake, or marshmallows into chocolate and place them in the fridge to harden. Wrap them up in a cute bag and hand them out to guests. If your bridal shower will be somewhere hot, be sure to ask about refrigeration options beforehand.


No matter what you choose, feel free to get creative and make it your own! Whether it’s a sweet treat or a thoughtful memento, your guests will love all bridal shower favors that reminds them of this special memory. For more tips and ideas, check out for all of your event planning needs.
