Pregnancy seems to be in the air: Almost everyone I know is either pregnant or trying for their first baby. As a seasoned baby shower attendee, baby shower favors can go two ways: the fabulous or the terrible. My personal preference is fabulous. Something useful or edible is usually best, and there are great favors for all budgets. This list covers them all, and if you are throwing a baby shower in the future, you should be able to find nearly everything.
Click behind the fold to check out the awesome list of baby shower favors.
The first favor, pictured above, is the World’s ‘Gratest’ Mom cheese grater. It’s a stainless steel grater with three different hole sizes.
