Customized Woodland Animal Cookies 

Animal-shaped cookies are an adorable woodland baby shower favor, especially when personalized with the baby’s name or shower date.

If you’d like to bake them yourself, start with your favorite sugar cookie recipe, then use woodland animal cookie cutters. For decorating, prepare royal icing in colors like brown, black, orange, tan, and white. To learn how to decorate cookies shaped like a fox, squirrel, owl, and hedgehog, check out this helpful post from Jenny Cookies.

Miniature Potted Plants

For this favor, choose miniature plants that are easy to care for and thrive indoors, such as mini ferns, baby spider plants, and succulents.

For decoration, wrap the pots in jute or twine to give them a rustic touch. Or, paint them with woodland-themed designs like mushrooms, woodland animals, or trees. If free-hand painting isn’t your thing, woodland animal stencils are a great option. Then, attach a cute tag with the phrase “Watch Me Grow” as a fun nod to the baby’s journey ahead.

Local plant nurseries are a great place to find plants. Alternatively, you can buy this set of six mini fern plants from Amazon or this 12-pack of succulents from Etsy.

Woodland Scented Candles 

Make your guests feel like they’re walking in the forest by gifting them woodland scented candles in fragrances like pine, cedarwood, or birch.

If you want to DIY these favors, a candle making kit can make it easy. Just melt the wax, stir in your chosen fragrance, pour into containers with wicks, and let it cool.

Prefer not to DIY? Buy a set of candles from Amazon and enhance them with twine bows, animal charms, and little twigs of artificial greenery.

Or, for a ready-made option, explore Etsy for a variety of pre-made woodland candles adorned with cute stickers, flowers, or woodland animals.

Animal-Shaped Soap 

Animal-shaped soap is a fantastic woodland baby shower favor because it’s both adorable and practical!

To make the soap yourself, start by melting a mild, hypoallergenic soap base to ensure it’s baby-safe. Then, add your choice of fragrances or colors and pour the mixture into molds shaped like woodland creatures. Allow the soap to solidify before unmolding.

Alternatively, you can buy soap bars and remold them into animal shapes, as demonstrated in this helpful DIY video.

If you’re short on time, order custom soaps from Etsy. These soaps are made with clean ingredients and offer customizable scents and colors to perfectly suit your needs.

Seed Packet Favors

Seed packets are a wonderful eco-friendly favor for a woodland baby shower, symbolizing a baby’s growth and new beginnings.

To make your own, choose easy-to-grow seeds like wildflowers or herbs. Print your design and message onto cardstock, cut it into packet shapes, add about ¼ teaspoon of seeds to each, seal with glue, and attach planting instructions on the back.

For a simpler option, buy paper seed envelopes, then add a custom sticker featuring your baby shower details.

Or, purchase bookmarks from Etsy. You’ll find a diverse selection of bookmarks made from wood, acrylic, leather, or paper, beautifully decorated with mushrooms, trees, woodland animals, and other designs.
