Fantastic Party Favors

Baby Piggy BankI had the pleasure recently to review a few baby shower favor items from Beau-coup, an online retailer offering an extensive like of party favors and gifts for a variety of occasions. After opening up the package and taking a peek inside it made me feel like organizing a party because the party favors were so darn adorable. :)

Here are the specific items that I sampled.

Baby Piggy Bank – Who doesn’t love a cute little piggy bank? Once I got over the attractive packaging, I opened this little white piggy bank which measures 3.25”L x 2.5”W x 2.5” H and was pleasantly surprised by something that I haven’t seen on other ceramic piggy banks that my children have received – little rubber bottoms on each of its tiny little feet. This means that this littly piggy won’t be scratching the surfaces of my furniture like the other piggy’s in my home do. :) It’s a small little thing , but big in my mind.

Let me get back to the awesome packaging. I’m posting a picture, but as you can see it comes in a clear gift box with a tied polka dot ribbon that can be used for any gender or other occasions outside of a baby shower, such as a child’s birthday party, etc.

Next came, my favorite, the Baby Bath Confetti Favors. Oh, this smelled so good and again I simply adoredBaby Bath Confetti Favors the packaging. I received the blue accented favor which, as you’ll see from the photo, contains white and blue star soap flakes. Take a closer look at the photo and notice this tiny little blue pacifier charm that’s tied around the polka-dotted ribbon – how cute is that?

This bath favor is in a 2″ diameter and 1″ high white tin, so once the soap flakes are gone the little tin can be used to hold various little items around the house. I’m using it to hold some of my thumb tacks. :)

Gourmet Cupcake Baking MixDo you like cupcakes? I know I do and the Gourmet Cupcake Baking Mix, in chocolate, was just what I needed since I was having a chocolate craving. This mix is exclusive to Beau-coup and is great to give as a favor or to whip up a batch of cupcakes for a birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, etc.

Every mix includes the recipe and cooking instructions and I was able to make a dozen of these scruptious goodies that my sons quickly devoured – at least I was able to grab one before they were gone.

The mixes also come with a gift box, which is shipped flat so they don’t get squished during shipping and you have a choice between a natural colored box or a glossy white one.

Now for what is just unbelievable! Check out their site. I must say I wasn’t expecting such a HUGE variety of gift and party favor items.

I found the site to be easy to navigate. The option to choose favors by theme, category, occasion or by price makes hunting down the perfect favors that much easier.

They also have a section to help you get ideas and inspiration for planning a party.

One thing that I also want to mention is that they have a minimum quantity requirement for most of their products. Each product lists the minimum amount that will be needed to order.

The good news is that you can place a sample order to check out a product first to be sure it’s what your expecting before placing a larger order.

My youngest son turns 4 next month and I took a look at their birthday favor section and I think the Mini Gumball Machines will be a big hit as favors at his birthday party. Time to go and make a purchase. :)
