When it comes to wedding favor ideas, we’ve seen it all: custom mugs, dessert macarons, and personalized place settings. Giving out wedding favors at your reception is a pleasant gesture, but finding useful things that will A) not gather dust after the reception and B) won’t break your budget can be difficult. Fortunately, with a little help from real couples, it’s possible.
Mini Champagne Bottles
Ah yes, a little bubbly didn’t hurt anyone (get it?). Small and easy to pack into a gift bag, mini champagne bottles are perfect for toasting your marriage before or after the ceremony. They’re not very expensive to buy either, making these wedding favors classy and budget-friendly to include in your parting salutations.
On that note, let’s pair that mini bottle of champagne with a cocktail shaker! It’s a practical gift. Not only will your guests receive a new way to handcraft their favorite libations, but they can add to their chic kitchen accessories.
Garden seed packets are a wedding gift that keeps on giving. If you’re having an outdoor wedding in a garden setting, this idea is perfect. Choose easy-to-grow plants that thrive both indoors and out for the most useful seeds—some choices include lemongrass, basil, chives, lavender, and mint.
If you’re having your wedding outside or during the summer, handmade artisanal soaps are one of our favorite wedding favor ideas. Consider buying them from a nearby small business or making your own with scented wax and oils. For the best, allergy-friendly soaps, stick to all-natural ingredients.
Embroider your wedding monogram, date, or initials on high-quality fleece blankets. All will be reminded of your special day when they curl up with the blanket at home after you’ve married.
