Simple and beautiful compliment one another with these paper lanterns and butterfly’s. You can achieve a similar look with, paper pom-poms (really popular at the moment) covered with sweet honey-bee’s, elegant lady bug’s, daisy’s, or pretty little bird’s.

  • If the shower is for a little baby boy; use old fashioned airplanes, hot air balloons, helicopters, or cute garden bugs.

This is a cool idea from:, use a funnel to pour glitter into latex balloons (before they’re inflated of course)!

  • Use helium or an air pump to inflate balloons; this will eliminate the risk of, inhaling any glitter.

Yummy Shower Favor

Before you start making sugar scrubs…

Here’s some advice:

1. Experiment with small batches and try them out before you invest too much energy turning the scrubs into gifts. I think you’ll love them though.

2. The scrubs are really cute in little glass jars- HOWEVER, I’m not a big fan of glass in the shower, for obvious reasons. You may want to use a nice little plastic or shatter proof container instead…or advise your guests to transfer their scrubs to a plastic bag, e.c.t, before they take it in the shower.

3. Include a short statement of caution on the labels you create for the sugar scrub. Example of wording:

CAREFUL! Surface of shower will become very slippery from oils in this scrub.

Simple Sugar Scrub Recipe:

  • Large mixing bowl and spoon
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup plus, 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 10-12 drops of essential oil (Lavender, Cherry Bark, Rosewater or Thyme are some of my faves).

How to make your homemade scrub:

  • Mix sugar and oil until sugar is moist.
  • Add essential oil until you are satisfied with the scent and consistency of the scrub.
  • Add finished mixture to a gift container
  • Label and decorate your container as desired
  • Yields approximately 21 ounces

Best Baby Shower Ideas for packaging your sugar scrub:

  • Plastic baby bottle favors. Attach a label to a piece of string or ribbon and tie it around the neck of the bottle.

You can also use:

  • Baby food jars, or other mini containers
  • Sealed plastic bag placed in a tiny gift box 

More Easy Options

Check out your local craft store, dollar store or drug store. If you have trouble finding matching containers, just mix and match. It’s okay if the shapes and/or colors vary, but they should be close in size.

TIP: Look for plastic, 4 ounce baby bottles at the dollar store. They’re a really cute way to package your homemade scrub!
