This is the picture for the baby shower pin favor that I sent you on the website. I think that this will be a crowd favorite. I will be passing them out for all the guest at my best friends shower this weekend. I love them and they are so cute! Thanks for looking!

I am looking for suggestions for baby shower favors using empty prescription bottles.
Paint them pink and blue and fill with mints.
First, just be sure to sterilize the bottles with hot water. Some pills leave residue and you would not want any guests to get sick from the bottle (sorry--I am just a safety first gal).
There are so many cute ideas for pill bottles.
There are lots of label templates online where you could have clever "prescriptions" for the bottles (which could be filled with nuts or candy for favors. The labels I have seen are all over the place from cute (take two candies and call the new mommy in the morning) to simple...thanks for coming to "Jane's" baby shower and the date.
Even cuter, you can drill a small hole in them and use them as shades for white twinkle lights that you string around the room. They cast a pretty orange glow that makes a nice gender neutral background if you are going that route just add some green and yellow accents and you have a lovely gender neutral palate.
You could use them as part of a game--like hot potato--fill the bottles with candy and have people pass them off as fast as they can and every time the host says stop, the people holding the bottle are out. The last people standing win door prizes.
Pinterest can be your friend! They have dozens of cute ideas for using old pill bottles in clever ways!
Paint a little baby rattle on each one, fill with beans, and they can be used as noisemakers.
I want to make homemade body and facial scrubs to give out as favors, to my baby shower party I am hosting. Any recipes out there?
A great recipe I made for a body scrub works really well and softens the skin. You will need: salt, sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil or olive oil and food color, optional.
Mix all the ingredients together, dye it a color like pink or blue( the sex of the baby pink for a girl blue for a boy if you know if not just do a mixture of both)
A cute way to put them in something is empty baby food jars, get "its a boy! or its a girl! ribbon (if you do not know the sex do both) tie the ribbon around the jar (like a christmas present) OPTIONAL: tie a pink or blue lollipop into the bow

Looking for an easy baby shower favor to make.
Here's an easy idea. We just did this for my daughter's baby shower and it was a big hit! Pacifier necklaces! Purchase narrow satin ribbon for the chain; then white mint lifesavers and Mike -n- Ike candies. With a glue gun, glue two of the white lifesavers (one flat and the other upright - to look like the top of the pacifier). Cut the tips off of the Mike -n- Ike candies and hot glue to the mints (this looks like the nipple part of the pacifier). String them individually for neckalaces. Really cute.
On a large safety pin, you can put blue, pink or yellow and white beads along with a pacifier. They look really cute. Our Dollar Tree has lots of packaged baby shower favors, so you could get like 12 for a buck. Good luck!
