You know we'd never say "no" to a lap around the party store, but when it comes to baby showers, DIY party favors can be a great way to personalize your event and give guests (including the mom-to-be!) an extra special trinket they'll treasure forever. 

And while there's nothing wrong with opting for packaged gifts, going the DIY route can also save a little coin. Sure, making things yourself requires more time than buying favors, but the ideas ahead are way easier to execute than you might expect. So go ahead, get crafty!
