Monkey Baby Shower Favors

monkey baby shower favors

The perfect way to send guests home from a monkey baby shower is with monkey baby shower favors. We love edible favors, so some of our favorite ideas include monkey themed cookies, cupcakes, or chocolate covered Oreos. Another way that you could use the monkey theme more subtly with the favors is with banana flavored treats like taffy, pudding, or candy. You could also choose to add the theme to the shower favors with the packaging.  Here are some of our favorite ideas for monkey baby shower favors.


Monkey Baby Shower Favors


Monkey Chocolate Covered Oreo from

If you want an easy favor to give, these chocolate covered Oreos that are decorated with a monkey face could be a good option. They are individually packaged in cellophane and tied with a ribbon so they come ready to give the guests.



Monkey Candles from

If you want to give a monkey themed shower favor but prefer non-edible favors, these monkey candles from could be cute. The candles come packages individually in a clear box with a matching ribbon and tag.



Monkey Face Cookie Cutter from The Cookie Cutter Shop

We think themed cookies make a perfect baby shower favor. You could use this monkey face cookie cutter from The Cookie Cutter Shop to make cookies that are either plain and simple or decorated with icing (you can learn how to decorate a monkey cookie with this tutorial). Alternatively, you could choose to give the guests the actual cookie cutter for the favors.

Banana Flavored Candy Sticks from Oriental Trading

These banana flavored candy sticks from Oriental Trading would be a classic and fitting favor to give at a monkey baby shower.  You could package them in a favor bag or box or just tie several together with a ribbon.



Banana Pudding in a Jar Tutorial from Bakerella

You could make these adorable banana pudding jars to give the guests at a monkey themed shower.  You can find a tutorial, as well as free printable labels, at Bakerella.



Bubble Gum with Monkey Themed Labels from

If you want an easy shower favor, these bubble gum packs from could be a great option.  The gum is original bubblegum flavored and you can customize the color and wording on the labels.  To get to the monkey label, choose the “classic animal” option in the design drop-down menu and then choose “monkey” for the icon.

Banana Shaped Candies from Oriental Trading

These cute little banana candies from Oriental Trading could be a great shower favor.  They are budget-friendly and come individually packaged (as seen) with 48 packages included in each item.  We know this “beach monkey” packaging may not go well with most showers, but since they are inexpensive you could re-package the banana candies into bags that go better with the shower decor if you’d like.

We think banana flavored salt water taffy would be a perfect favor to give shower guests at a monkey themed baby shower.  You can find banana taffy at a lot of online stores  - one of the best deals we found was for this 3 pound bag from Candy Warehouse.



Reversible Cupcake Wrappers from Birthday Express

Cupcakes also make great baby shower favors if individual packaged and ready for the guests to take along with them. These cupcake wrappers from Birthday Express are reversible and really cute. You could use simple cupcake boxes like these since the actual cupcakes already use the shower theme. Here are a couple other ways you can make monkey themed cupcakes to give as shower favors.
