  1. Do you want to give your guests edible wedding favor gifts such as cookies, popcorn, cake, donuts, coffee beans or cake pops? Things like coffee beans, cake pops or fruit or nuts that are native to your area make great gifts for your guests when in season. Other good wedding favor ideas for edible type gifts include things like teabags, hot sauce, honey, or lollipops made specifically for your wedding.
  2. Or, if edible gifts are not your style, are you looking for something else like a cute reusable keepsake such as a wine stopper or a keychain or something under $2 eachIf you’re looking for things that the guest can use over and over at home, maybe you can consider things like drink koozies, wine glasses, bottle openers or stoppers, wine glass charms, tea lights, shot glasses, stemless wine glasses or votive candles. Keep in mind that most of these can be personalized too.
  3. Is a more DIY kind of wedding favor what you plan on handing out? If this is the case, you and your friends will have lots of fun putting these together for family and friends. What should you include in these? Again, the sky is the limit based on wedding favors out there. Another idea might even be making a Covid-19 inspired wedding favor gift for your guests to keep everyone healthy and safe. Or how about a sampler of well known local specialty foods they probably have never tried?
  4. If you are having a party after your wedding ceremony and it is at night, why not give your guests some fun glow in the dark kinds of toys to celebrate the newlyweds as you all dance the night away? And the choices of items to choose from are many - how about glow sticks, necklaces, sunglasses, bracelets and more. Give any of these to your guests and you know they're going to have a lot of fun.

How about a funny tshirt commemorating your wedding? Or are playing cards more your style? How about movies - is this more your thing? If so, then a cool bag of a caramel popcorn type yummy treat will be something you'll probably enjoy on your next movie night. If you have a fun sense of humor there are lots of really cool personalized wedding favor items out there for you! Everything from toys to drinks, to naughtier items, if that's your thing.
