If you’re on the hunt for a squee-worthy custom baby shower favor that people will actually use and love, look no further. We’ve found all-natural, handmade soaps with customizable wrappers and delicious scents that will look posh on display at the shower — and feel even more posh at home in the shower.
Purple Mache on Etsy is a woman-run shop specializing in handcrafted bath goods made from high-quality, luxurious oils and local plants. Every soap I’ve tried is lovely, moisturizing, and bubbly.
But what’s really cool about Purple Mache soaps is that you can buy them in bulk with customized vellum wrappers for your baby or wedding shower. How nifty is that?
Baby shower favor bulk pricing starts at 10 full-sized bars or 15 2.5 oz. bars. You get to choose from eight scents, then provide your own wording and choose a graphic. There are tons of examples of cute shower favors on the site, and owner Kersten is lovely to work with.
Need help choosing? I think the Cardamom Bar Soap is a stand-out, with the spice of cardamom mixed with creamy goat’s milk and oatmeal. The Lemon Poppyseed is light and fresh, and I love the gentle scrub from the poppy seeds. Then there are scents like Cinnamon Spice, Brown Sugar and Fig, and Mint Poppyseed that smell so good you’ll want to lick them.
After having seen our share of jellybean favors, candy bars, and keychains with someone else’s baby name on it (sigh) this is an incredibly thoughtful gift idea that also helps support a lovely small business.
