Baby showers are the perfect way to celebrate a pregnancy and welcome a new baby into the world. What are the most important ingredients for an unforgettable baby shower? Cheerful guests, silly games, a fun, baby-related theme and good food, of course! Cakes are almost always an essential part of a good baby showers, and they come in many shapes and sizes. Some great ideas for themed cakes include teddy bears, diapers, a stroller or even a great big pregnant belly. But cakes stop being quite so beautiful the minute they are cut into, and their memory will fade after the baby shower is over and the cake is eaten.
Cookies, on the other hand, work beautifully as party favors for baby shower guests. They will make the guest remember the baby shower and smile even after the party is over. Cookies can also be a nice gift for the mom-to-be, or can be given to one lucky guest who wins one of those infamous baby shower games like “guess the birthday” or “don’t say baby”. For the uninitiated, that is a popular game at baby showers, during which guests try to avoid using the word “baby” – whoever says the word the fewest times, wins the game. Back to cookies. This is a list of great baby shower cookies.
Baby gift baskets
Smiley cookie baby gift baskets come in pink or blue, and contain 36 freshly baked mini cookies with a beautiful smile. There is also a bib that says “I’ve got the milk…you bring the cookies”. These gift baskets are the perfect gift for moms whose pregnancy signs include sugar cravings! Their cuteness may actually make someone cry, so watch out!
A star is born
Are you an expectant mother who wants to show your baby shower host how much you appreciated the party? There is nothing better than these star-shaped and colorful smiley cookies to say a big Thank You to the person who put in all that hard work to organize your shower. “A star is born” can refer both to the baby and the shower host! You’ve got to love the dual meaning.
These cutie-pie hearts are just gorgeous to give as party favors! Wrap a few of them in cellophane and tie a bow in pink or blue, depending on whether the baby is a boy or girl, around them. Add a personalized card with the date of the baby shower, and you’ve got a lovely reminder of the shower for every guest.
Make your own cookie!
Did you know that you can customize your own smiley cookie? If your perfect cookie is not on the site already, or you just want something a little more personal, you can choose from any of the shapes and add any color you want. Did you like the heart-shaped cookie, but want it in blue for a boy? No problem! How about a pink cloud to represent the way we feel during pregnancy? You can have it!
