Easy bridal shower favors include swag bags, loose tea, homemade snacks and gifts made from fresh or dried herbs. The shower favors can stand alone or have a theme that matches the theme of the wedding.
Swag bags filled with beauty products make excellent shower favors that attendees can use as they dress for the wedding. Nail polish, lipstick, lip gloss, moisturizer and fragrance samples all easily fit in small drawstring bags.
Package loose tea in cello bags or small tins with custom labels. For a more elaborate presentation, pack the tea into a small teacup or teapot.
Snacks such as flavored popcorn, candied fruit peels, baked goods, and candy, nut or fruit assortments all make suitable bridal shower favors. Pack these treats in cello bags, tins or mugs; use canning jars to present larger portions.
There are many different ways to present herbs. Wrap herb sprigs around a wire frame to form a wreath. Alternatively, tie bundles of dried herb sprigs with a pretty ribbon, and then add a gift tag containing a recipe that makes use of the herbs. Another option is to pot individual herb plants or small groupings of plants before presenting them to the guests.
