Looking for a fresh, useful shower favor idea? Reusable shopping bags are, happily, being used by more and more people, making them quite popular. If you are having a large baby or bridal shower, you could have shopping bags personalized for only about $2.00 each when you buy 100 bags. Some companies offer smaller minimums, like cheaptotes.com, where 50 bags with a one color personalization will run you about $3.29 each, or discountmugs.com which offers a minimum of 12 bags and a variety of clip art and typestyles.
Personalize the bag with art related to your shower theme and a fun caption, i.e. “I’m wild about babies!” for a safari theme. Or, you could personalize it with some art related to your shower theme and “Smithers Baby Shower 7.18.10.”
For a bridal shower, you could use love or wedding clip art, art related to the shower or wedding theme (beach, claddagh), or even something symbolic like two birds in a nest. Combine the artwork with something direct like “Bill and Jenn are getting married,” or a meaningful or humorous quote about love or marriage, i.e. “All you need is love.”
No matter how you personalize it, your guests will enjoy both using the bag and the reminder of your event each time they use it.
