Bridal showers - a long-standing tradition that dates all the way back to the 1800s - are the perfect time for a bride's closest family and friends to show her a little extra love. She is, after all, right in the very busy middle of planning for one of the most important and exciting days of her life! If you're putting together a shower for the bride in your life you probably already know that the details and budget both matter, and we want to help you pin down the specifics without overtaxing your wallet - which is why we've pulled some bridal shower favor ideas from one of our favorite sources of DIY inspiration, Darby Smart.

Super sweet and the ultimate keepsake, a stamped silver spoon can be personalized to fit any occasion. We love the idea of a pair of "Mr." and "Mrs." spoons for the happy couple, or a sweet-treat inspired phrase for bridal shower favors.
