8 Delightful Hot Chocolate Favors for Weddings

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!

17 Uncommon Favor Ideas You’ll Love for Weddings

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.

“Fun Favor Ideas for Kids at Weddings?” – Ask Emmaline

Happy Friday, lovelies! Emma here. I loved reading all of your wonderful Ask Emmaline questions this week, so keep ’em coming. (I honestly read every single one!) If we haven’t posted yours yet, we will soon. Promise! Today we’re answering Samantha’s question about what kind of favors to give to kids attending her wedding. She asks,

Hi Emmaline! I’m working on wedding favors right now and we’re expecting approximately 10 children at our wedding. I know a wine bottle stopper isn’t exactly a great favor for all ages. ;) Any advice on a kid-friendly favor I can swap out for them instead? Thanks!Samantha

Hi Samantha! Kid-friendly favors in lieu of your selected favor (in your case, the wine bottle stopper) are an easy way to keep kids happy and having fun before dinner! One of our favorite ideas is a favor bag filled with small toys, a coloring book, crayons, and some candy (especially these!) — even better if there are even some fun wedding-themed games right on the outside! These genius kid-friendly favor bags are made by Mavora. And they’ll pretty much make you the coolest bride ever.

You can even add these cute “Have Fun” stickers to the favor bags!
