While some might think that wedding favours are a little outdated and opt to skip them all together, many brides still want to leave a little something of thanks on the table for guests to take home with them. But, if you’re not careful, wedding favours can easily become just another thing to be tossed in the bin or left behind. And, no one wants to see a portion of their wedding budget sitting at the bottom of a bin. That’s right brides and grooms to be, it’s time to ditch the overly priced, useless trinkets in favour of something your guests will actually use … and love! We’ve put together 5 affordable ideas for wedding favours that guests will use long after your honeymoon is over.
1. Personalised coffee bean bags
The best way to get good coffee is to grind your own beans. Guests can use this little bag of coffee goodness long after your wedding day and chances are they’ll think of you whenever they enjoy a cup of Joe.
2. Customisable hair ties
Because no woman can ever have enough hair ties. These are great thank you gifts for female guests and will definitely not be binned at the end of the night.
3. Reusable canvas bags
A classic cotton tote bag is a great thank you gift for wedding guests as it will not only encourage them to be more environmentally friendly when they shop but it will also come in use long after your wedding day. You can get them custom printed with fun slogans to make sure your guests remember you whenever they whip it out.
4. Personalised matches
Personalised match boxes are a fun, and inexpensive, way to say thanks to your guests on your wedding day. The fun pun possibilities you can print on the boxes are almost endless and your guests will definitely use these after the big day.
5. A bottle of raw honey
Nothing sweetens a wedding day like a little bottle of local, raw honey to take home with you. Guests will love this sweet treat and will think of you every time they add a little sweetness to their tea. Of course, once again, the puns are endless with honey!
