We have a few key tips for buying bridal shower favors. First, it's nice to somehow connect the tokens into your fête's theme or event design. Second, get creative with what you give—the more original, the more exciting. Third, try for something that's at least a little practical. You don't want your presents to go to waste, do you? While favors are definitely supposed to be mementos, they should also serve another purpose. That could be anything from entertaining attendees at the party itself to coming in handy later on the wedding day.

Take this celebration's plant favors. Not only were the adorable Shop Succulents gifts incorporated into the party's place settings, but recipients could display them in their homes afterward. This is exactly the type of takeaway we're talking about. To see more ideas just like this one, browse the inspiration ahead. You'll find present suggestions as well as packaging and presentation options. From edible items to fun DIYs, there's plenty to savor and steal for your own soirée. Whatever you choose, your guests will be happy, and you will be, too—no throw-away keepsakes here!
