I recently attended a baby shower and received this unique and useful party favor. I was so impressed that I am sharing it here with all of you! Although it was a baby shower favor, it also would make a great party favor for a birthday party.

If you can't find a place to purchase personalized baseballs or if you only need a few, you can personalize your own. Purchase the type of baseball that you would like and use a paint pen or permanent marker to customize it.You will want to use a fine or ultra fine tip.
