Having a baby is cause for celebration — and nowadays people turn every aspect of the pregnancy into a party.

Pregnancy announcements, gender reveals, and baby showers always provide a reason to bring people together in preparation for a new baby.

Throwing a baby shower is always a fun experience. It’s a great time for a mom-to-be to spend time with her girlfriends, talk about babies, and get ready for her upcoming new arrival.

Baby showers are often specific to the mom, but they almost always have one thing in common: gifts.

Sometimes guests bring a surprise, instead, which is always exciting to see!

Whoever is hosting the party, whether it is a family member, a friend, or the mom-to-be herself, often want to thank guests for attending and bringing gifts.

So what better way to do that than by giving out adorable homemade party favors?

Check out the instructions below to learn how to make a few of these perfect party favors right at home!
