Hi, loves! I love when I find cute wedding, bachelorette party, or bridal shower favors that guests will enjoy, especially when it can be used again and again! Since you’re allocating money for favors, you might as well find something awesome that guests can actually use, right? That’s what I think, too! So, naturally, when I spotted these wine charms over at Kara’s Vineyard Wedding, I couldn’t wait to share them with you. They make incredible bachelorette party favors (or bridal shower favors) and, as Kara points out in her shop, they can be used as place cards, too! They’re especially perfect for a wine themed bachelorette party, don’t you think? Take a closer look…

Hello, hello! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? For me, it was a total transformation of fall to winter. We were hit by the massive snowstorm and had a total of about 8″ of glistening snow which fell steadily for about twenty-four hours. It was so beautiful; the first snowfall always is. The beginning of the snow-filled holiday season always gets me in an instant cozy mood. It doesn’t take long to find me unpacking slippers, fuzzy socks, blankets, and holly jolly decorations faster than you can say hey Em, coffee is ready. (And believe me, I come running.) Anyway, with the frigid temps around here we wanted to warm you up with some hot chocolate favors for weddings, bridal showers, and holiday parties. We’ve found hot cocoa favors on a stick, in a cone, inside an ornament, in a jar, a tube, a bag, and a box. We’ve even found some cute wooden spoons for stirring. So, if it’s hot chocolate favors you’re after, you’ll find it right here! And… if you’re feeling extra creative, head down to number eight for an amazing DIY tutorial we found. Happy hot-chocolating & enjoy!
Wedding favors are undoubtedly one of the most personalized details of your reception. While some couples skip favors altogether, we think they ought to be a necessity. Why? A wedding favor is a small token of your appreciation for guests and thanks them for coming and sharing in your big day. Some favors are very inexpensive to fit any budget; others are more expensive, depending on how custom you’d like them to be. There’s no right or wrong favor to give — it should simply be something you enjoy and would like to receive, too. A favor can tie in your theme or add a little personality to the mix. For instance, a coffee favor would tell guests you’re, like me, quite the coffee obsessed couple. Or, if you’re a serious candy-holic, a candy buffet or bags of a favorite candy (like these in bulk) at each seat would be a way to share your love for sugary treats. You get the idea!
We’re always on the hunt for new and unique wedding favor ideas to share, so today we’re finally sharing some of our newest finds! You have hopefully never seen most of these, while some of them are unique twists on favors you’ve probably heard of before. When you’re done here, be sure to check out our favors archive and browse our favorite handmade favors from Featured Artists in The Marketplace. There are SO MANY amazing ideas out there. I know, lots to do — but we want you to have enough ideas to get those favors narrowed down this weekend. Let’s get those crossed off your list! :) Enjoy!
Unique Wedding Favors
1. These awesome bottle opener favors
These favors are pretty awesome for two reasons: first, it’s a bottle opener, which everyone could use at home. Second, it starts off the evening with a craft beer (or root beer, or cola) at each guest’s seat. By Poppin Print.
Are you looking for a favor guests will actually use (and one they don’t always see)? We’ve found just the thing, especially for spring and summer weddings! These fun sunglasses favors — paired with these personalized tags from Tickled Pink Paper & Ink — can be used during your outdoor ceremony so guests aren’t squinting in the sun, worn in your photo booth as props, and worn after the wedding all season long. We’ve tracked down the perfect bulk sunglasses here (even the reviews are awesome). We love the even more because you can pick from hot pink, green, blue, orange, yellow, or classic white or black.
All you need to do is get a personalized stamp (go here), tags of your choice, twine or string, and sunglasses (you can find them here).

Hi, lovelies! Did you know today is National Coffee Day? Me either. And I’m a huge coffee fan. I found out because the hashtag #NationalCoffeeDay was percolating pretty quickly on Twitter. There’s probably only two reasons why people love to celebrate this day: free coffee at select places AND the justification to go ahead and have another cup. ;) Anyways, we wanted to jump on the made-up holiday bandwagon and use it as an excuse to share these adorable coffee favor bags from Mavora. We’ve selected them as today’s #HANDMADEADAY pick…
