Besides oohing and aahing over the mama-to-be's growing belly, the best part of a baby shower are the desserts! Which is why we love these seriously beautiful baby-themed cookies. We also love work-of-art cookies because we can get away with them as dessert and party favor. (Way to save on the budget.) Here are our go-to resources.
Meli and Angi
Founded by two college-friends-turned-bakers, Meli & Angi’s hand-cut and hand-decorated cookies are gorgeous. For baby shower favors, check out their Onesie cookies and miniature Button cookies, decorated with tiny hearts and a simply adorable sheep design. The Baby Gift cookie set also makes a great gift for new parents!
Favor cookies range from $3-$6 each, depending on size and level of detail. Button cookies are $12/dozen.
Sweeties by Kim
Kim transforms chocolate-covered Oreos into works of modern art. Seriously. You’ll find everything from polka dot and animal print designer Oreos to Double-Stuff Oreo Pops. P.S. The contemporary hand-cut lettering on the personalized favors is a modern design lover’s dream!
Prices range from $2-$4 per Oreo, depending on the level of detail.
This Etsy-based shop specializes in entirely organic, handcrafted sugar cookies. (Even the food coloring is all natural!) We love all the creative touches -- check out the Sweet Baby Onesies, Meet the Birdies, and Tiny Ducks, great for a modern rubber ducky-themed party!
Large favor cookies start at $22/dozen. Tiny cookies start at $10.50/8 dozen.

This Mommy blogger/baking guru has some serious creative skills -- and the portfolio to prove it! She specializes in custom work to match your party or event theme, like these Animal Baby Shower cookies created to match the graphics on a customer’s party napkins. We'd love to try this same design at a modern zoo- or jungle-themed baby shower!
Pricing starts at $4/cookie (quantity discounts available).
