carriages, and more. You can also use standard household candles and
deck them with a colored ribbon or bow to match your theme.

or hard candies (use the colors in your theme for a great personal
touch), or give out boxed candy with a ribbon or bow.

are plenty of online suppliers that sell personalized wrappers for
chocolate bars. They usually include the baby’s name (if known),
parents’ name, date of the shower, and maybe baby shower wording or

wrap them individually. Tie them with a personalized ribbon or label.

colors and sizes, or just one or two colors to match your decorations.

flower seeds so the guests can plant them in the spring.
