Clever Snack & Favors Ideas For A Boy Baby Shower

If you are looking for the cutest and tastiest baby shower food to serve, look no further my friend! These are adorable and super simple to make.

Go to your local grocery store, scoop up some Nutter Butters, white Candy Melts, blue food coloring (or pink for a girl - or any color to match your theme) and some mini chocolate chips.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave according to package directions. Add food coloring, stir, and dip the ends of each cookie into the colored chocolate.

Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes. Lay on waxed paper or tin foil to dry.

Serve on a platter for guests to enjoy at the baby shower, or bundle them up in cellophane bags and give as baby shower favors! The perfect baby shower treat!

The best food coloring in the entire world is Wilton Icing Colors - produces such vibrant colors and you only have to use a tiny bit, which makes it last forever.




Easy DIY Popcorn Favors

Another easy baby shower favor or snack idea is to pop some popcorn, package into cellophane bags, add a cute ribbon and a favor tag that says "Ready To Pop!" Or "She's About To Pop!" 

Visit our "She's About To Pop" baby shower ideas page - we made some FREE printable tags that would be perfect for this favor idea!

There are "diaper and wipes" baby showers too - sometimes mom's with more than one child already have all of the baby gear needed - and just want the necessities such as diapers. Be sure to play the Diaper Raffle Game if you decide to host a diapers and wipes shower!

Fill a cute basket with "everything boy!" Onesies, socks, blankets, rattles, clothes and stuffed animals, trucks, a personalized soft blanket, a big blue piggy bank, or a hooded baby bath towel.

Boy Baby Shower Decorations


First ask the mom-to-be if she is doing her nursery in a certain color scheme. There are so many fun and stylish patterns and color combos in stores today! Boring boys themes have been jazzed up and are so cute!

If the expecting mommy has a certain theme in mind, jot down her ideas and thoughts.

Decorate with color coordinated plates and napkins and supplies. Target is my go-to store for finding the cutest baby shower supplies! They have the cutest boy baby shower plates, napkins, cups, balloons and banners! If you don't have a Target near you and love to shop online - You can never go wrong with Amazon! 



More cute and easy boy baby shower decorating ideas:

  • Fill empty baby food jars (labels removed) with colorful jelly bellies and place a tea lite on top
  • Sprinkle counter tops with baby-themed confetti in boy colors (found at craft stores)
  • Float colorful balloons all around - my new favorite way to use balloons are to sprinkle confetti inside before blowing them up. For a boy baby shower, use clear balloons and sprinkle in blue confetti - or whatever color matches your baby shower theme.


Baby Boy Shower Favors

  • Hand out cute hand soaps, bath salts or bath beads

  • Blueberry scented decorative candles

  • Bundle tea bags in organza pouches and include a favor tag saying "A baby is brewing!" - or hand out coffee cup with $5 coffee cards in them (I do this for baby shower prizes for the game winners)

  • Make a batch of yummy sugar cookies, cut into cute airplane shapes. Frost with blue frosting, wrap in some cute bags and tie with a blue ribbon.

  • Package up some jelly bellies in an organza bag and attach a cute "babies are sweet - take a treat" tag


Boy Baby Shower Games

Baby shower games are always fun. One of the oldest games is the toilet paper game. Have each guest to pull off the amount of tissue they think will perfectly fit around the pregnant mom. The one closest to the measurement wins. 


  • There's the clothes pin game. Give everyone one clothes pin. Pick a "word" that if the word is said out loud the person that first hears the word can steal the pin. Normally it's words like "baby" or similar. Make it a word that will be centered around having a baby, so it will be hard to not say it. At the end, the person with the most pins win.


  • There's the baby items on a tray game. Put some random baby items on a small tray, like pacifier, diaper, thermometer, baby spoon, etc, and pass the tray around. Put the tray away and have everyone write down the items that were on the tray. The person that got all the items right wins.


Be sure to have a few good baby shower prizes and gifts for the winners of the games. Things like scented lotions, candles, costume jewelry, etc makes good 'shower winner' gifts. Just place them in a gift bag with tissue paper to make it festive.
