Are you ready to say no to boring wedding favors and yes to thoughtful thank yous? When it comes to wedding favors, we’ve all been on the receiving end of well-intentioned but ultimately pointless gifts. Turn this trend on its head with some original, practical ideas instead!
Sunglasses are a great idea no matter what season you’re getting married in, but particularly if it’s in the summer. Add a personal touch by choosing frames that reflect your wedding colors and customizing the box they come in.
If your wedding is being held when the weather is a little chilly, blankets not only come in useful during the ceremony but can be given as favors too. Have them embroidered with your wedding date and initials or match the color to your theme, and they’ll remind everyone of your special day when cuddled up at home.
Yup, you read that correctly! Tea towels are one of the most unexpected wedding favor ideas ever, and also one of the most useful.
If you’re particular about kitchen décor, and who among us isn’t, you know the difference between the everyday towels you use to wipe the counter and clean up spills, and the fancy ones you put out when you’re expecting callers.
Pick high-quality towels and personalize them with professional calligraphy, or throw in a romantic quote. You’ll have an item your friends are proud to display in their own homes and are grateful for when wiping up cookie crumbs.
Koozies will keep folks’ beverages cold, their hands warm and they’re so easy to customize and turn into something unique! You can personalize your wedding koozies with initials, a line from your opening song, or even something funny; the options are endless.
What’s handier than a good bottle opener? This is the kind of wedding favor that everyone will get some use out of eventually, even if they don’t drink alcohol. Design them to clip onto a keyring and your celebrants can carry them wherever they go.
Hot Cocoa Mix
Hot cocoa mix is a useful wedding favor idea that people will love, even if it’s not particularly long-lasting. Package the powder in personalized glass bottles that will bring back happy memories every time your guests reuse them once they’ve polished off your special mix.
A Handmade Journal
You can inspire your guests to create a good habit with the gift of a handmade journal. You could even start them off by writing the first entry! Share details of a special memory you have with the person receiving the favor or just write a personal message of gratitude. Thank them for being in your life and sharing your special day with you.
Got a great idea about what favors you want to give your guests? We’d love to see what you went with.
