How to create memorable and usable baby shower prizes for your guests on a budget that is super affordable.
Being pregnant can be hard, painful and exhausting but totally worth it once you see the face of your little one. And planning for the baby shower can be very similar, painful and exhausting but to so worth it when you see your family and friends together to celebrate your little one who is about to arrive.
I knew for sure I wanted to play the fun baby shower games with my guest and I wanted to make the prizes desirable so everyone would want to participate.
And everyone did participate including one of my husband's friend, who happens to be a guy who wanted to win one of the prizes so he could gift it to his mom ( or a girlfriend that he didn't want to discuss quite yet, who knows).
I also knew I didn't want to spend too much money, so I went to Ross.
The total I spent on everything at Ross was $27.95, which technically happen to be free because I had a gift card from there that covered everything.
Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a picture of the items still in the box, so I will just tell you what I purchased.

Ross purchase for baby shower prize
* 2 boxes of 5 natural lip balm (total of 10)
* 1 box of Ellen Tracy nail polish (total of 10)
* 2 boxes of 6 hand lotions (total of 12)
I know a lot of people like to go to Dollar Tree to get their game prizes but I believe that Ross has better products and not only that, I spent less than I would if I had went to Dollar Tree since I purchased 32 items for $27.97
Now, how do you put all of this together?
Well, here is a list of the things I used:
* 10 Mason Jars ( Already had them)
* Tissue Paper (Already had it but you can buy a bunch from dollar tree for $1)
* Yarn ( Already had it)
* Thank you tags ( Made them myself )

I used the tissue paper as a base inside of the jar then placed each item next to each other, covered the top with a tissue paper then added the lid and tag and VOILA, just like that for less than $30 I have a total of 10 baby shower prizes.
Now, even if you didn't have the mason jars and other items I already had, you can easily recreate this entire idea for less than $50, still a great deal for great prizes.
So, here is a picture of the final result and if you have any questions please leave a comment!
