If the job of hosting a bridal shower has fallen on your shoulders, you already know you have your work cut out for you. The list of responsibilities can seem endless. From invitations to menu planning, you have your hands full. Then on top of it all, you need to come up with interesting ways to keep the girls at the bridal shower entertained. Usually, that involves games of some sort. And what is a bridal shower game without prizes or favors?

There are plenty of "throw away" bridal shower favors available, but what's the point? You can spend your hard earned money on bridal shower favors that will be forgotten about, or you can take the time to search out bridal shower favors that all of your guests will love and use. Hopefully, these ideas will get your creative juices flower.

Candles make beautiful and affordable bridal shower favors. What woman doesn't love to light a couple of candles when relaxing in the evening? From tea lights to flower shaped to champagne glass shaped candles, the options are endless. If you prefer, you can pick up inexpensive candles and glass candle holders. Then order personalized labels and attach them to the candle holders.

Sticking with the idea of relaxing, bath sets are another great idea for bridal shower favors. Small sample size bottles of bubble bath with matching body lotion are very affordable. Again, you can order personalized labels to attach to the bottles, or you can order the bottles already personalized.

If you'd rather treat your guests to sugar infused bridal shower favors, there's an easy trick to personalize snacks as well. The easiest route is to put a mound of candy inside small gift boxes purchased from a wedding retailer. Gift boxes are available in many different shapes including wedding cake shaped and diamond ring shaped. You can even pick up little shower favor bags. However, you can also order personalized gum and chocolate bar wrappers. Have you ever gone wrong with chocolate? Simply replace the original wrapper on the candy bars with the ones you order.

Other simple, affordable bridal shower favors that your guests will love include small plants, tea infusers, notepads with matching pens, and wine bottle stoppers.

Remember, you don't have to go broke to give memorable, fun bridal shower favors at your party. A little bit of planning and a lot of creativity is all it takes.
