I just did chocolate covered pretzel rods for my sis-in-laws baby shower. I just bought the rods, some bakers chocolate, melted in double boiler (if u don't have one just use a metal bowl over a saucepan), dip rods in chocolate about half way up, set on cookie sheets lined with wax or parchment paper. You can put them in fridge to set a bit. Don't do them until a day or two before shower. Craft stores sell longer bags specifically for pretzel rods. We added a little detail by also melting white chocolate chips and piping a swirly design over the chocolate. Also to go with the fairy tale theme, we added stars to the top and ribbon to the bottom to make it look like a magic wand. Took us maybe a 1/2 hour to do the dipping for 50 favors, then maybe an hour of wrapping, tying ribbon, etc.

I found some small 4 oz bottles at the $ store, and put jellybeans in them, then stamped some tags to tie on with curly ribbon.

Do you have a picture of that. She is decorating her nursery in fairies and this sounds cool. I cant picture the stars, etc. But it sounds adorable.

I have taken triangular shapes of flannel fabric (with baby print on it) and folded them like a diaper, secured with a small safety pin and filled with mints.

I collected small baby food jars from freecycle, cut a 1" strip of double sided designer paper (SU) and wrapped it around the center of the jar. I also tied on some raffia, then put a tealight in each one.

Maybe make a rattle using a scallop or circle punch on top of a sucker?

My friend made a bunch of tiny chocolate teddies bears from a candy mold. Then I put a few in a small cello bag with a pink ribbon and a pink and brown teddy bear (stamped, of course) tag. Took no time at all and the guests thought they were very cute.

I wanted to do more than 1 favor because the shower is very small and intimate (only 6 people, she already had a large shower) but I ran out of time, had a sick kid, etc. So here is what I decided to do:

shower favors

They will have a york peppermint patty in-between each one to make a "sandwich". I saw this in the gallery but I don't remember where. So appreciate everyone's help. Everyone has such great ideas, which I'm going to bookmark because several of my friends are pregnant.

The peppermint patty sandwiches are a good idea! Cute and simple!

I made nugget boxes for my friends shower. They were not quick or very simple but I loved how they came out!

They are adorable. I like them. I'll maybe try them next shower if I am involved in hosting. Thanks for sharing!

For the Nugget Boxes....there is tons of info and templates to be found here http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...=190469&page=9

Nugget chocolates are found at most bulk stores, I live in Canada, so I can't really suggest a name of a store for you.
