We have come up with super cute, classy, yet still cost-effective bridal shower favors! Many of the favors are "do-it-yourself" favors but there are many "shortcuts" to take if time is limited.


Our "Top 10 Hip Yet Cheap Bridal Shower Favors" are:

1) Candy, Candy, Candy!: Making your own candy is inexpensive and fun at the same time! Go to your local craft store and purchase candy melts and a cute mold and you are on your way to making remarkable candy everyone will enjoy. To save even more, consider making caramels to pass out - no melts or mold needed! Pick up some wax paper to wrap the caramels or tissue paper for the candy, add some ribbon and you have a super yummy favor! Not feeling so crafty? Package up some chocolate kisses in the wedding colors!

2) Cookie Extravaganza: Bake up some of the bride-to-be's favorite cookies, package them in a take-out container (found at craft stores), add a tag with a cute saying or the recipe and there you have it! If you aren't a baker - pick up some "wedding themed" cookie cutters, attach a cookie recipe, and you have a clever yet low-cost favor!

3) Relaxing Bath Salts: Make your own bath salts! Using epsom salt and/or sea salt add your favorite essential oil and you have a luxurious favor! Package in a cute glass jar or vellum bag, add some raffia or ribbon and everyone will love it!

4) "Thinkin' Green": Give back to the planet and to your guests at the same time! Pass out seed packets as a favor. To add some spunk to the packets, create some labels to go around the seed packets out of some simple paper. Add a clever saying, bride's name, and date of the shower. You could even place the packet in a small tera cotta pot.

5) Sudsy Soap: Everyone loves a sweet smelling soap! Why not make your own soap to hand out? There are many soap-making kits out there or you could even look up a recipe online - add your favorite scent and you'll have a hit! Wrap in elegant paper or a cute bag!

6) Mixed CD: To make the favor a bit more personal - create a CD of some of the bride-to-be's favorite songs. Get a cute picture of the bride and groom-to-be to put on front of the CD and you have a favor that will last forever. Meaningful and cheap bridal shower favors!

7) Homemade Jam: Super cheap and delicious! Make a batch of your favorite jam, put in small mason jars, place some fancy fabric over the top and secure with lid and ribbon. Add a label if you'd like - simple and sweet favor idea!

8) Tea Time: Yes, you can make your own tea! Dry out your favorite herbs, place in tea bags, place the bags in a cute little tea cup for everyone to enjoy!

9) Bracelets: Feeling a bit crafty? Pick up some stringing cable, clasps and beads at a craft or bead store. Make it personal by choosing beads in the wedding colors - you could even add beads in the bride's initials and/or wedding or shower date.

10) Long-Lasting Candles: Making candles is super easy and inexpensive. Go to your local craft store and get some wax, wicks, and your favorite scent. Follow the melting directions for the wax. Find a cute tin to use or you could even recycle old altoid tins. Decorate the tin with some fancy paper, add the bride-to-be's name and the date of the shower!
