Jordan almonds. Mini boxes of chocolates. Anything “perfect pear”-related. You’ve seen them all, and so have your guests. With your wedding fast approaching, make sure to take the time to pick out unique favors your guests will hang onto. We’ve rounded up our top picks below.
No one can deny that treats and food still take the cake, but clever punchlines and smart packaging make all the difference. These bride and groom themed Oreo cookies, for example, are an adorable take on a classic theme. Mints are thoughtful and practical, and this tin loaded with double entendre, not to mention cuteness, can be used to stash loose change or small pins long after the wedding. Looking for a classy, subtle angle? This heart-shaped coffee scoop doesn’t scream “wedding”, and it’ll quickly become a mainstay in their kitchen drawer.
Bath and body favors
Similarly, heart-shaped soaps are a nice souvenir of your big day without the weirdness of 200 guests bringing home something with your name on it. Not keen on hearts? A lucky horseshoe shape is more gender-friendly and memorable, with a personalization option. Love is in the air, so encourage a little puckering up with these personalized lip balms, or keep cooties at bay with these personalized hand sanitizers, a thoughtful favor during winter.
Plantable eco-chic favors are all the rage; they look like cards but have seeds embedded into them, meaning guests can plant the whole thing and enjoy blossoms come springtime. These classy floral-shaped ones come in a bucket for one-and-done planning, while these boast seasonal shapes and a mini pot. Score high on efficiency with these place cards that include a detachable heart-shaped paper with wildflowers.
These are practically guaranteed to get a lot of mileage. Go sentimental, with key-shaped bottle openers or uber practical with neoprene bottle huggers. Multicolored bottle stoppers are neutral enough but still display your personal touch.
