We’ve got some seasonal wedding inspiration for those of you planning a winter wedding with these festive winter wedding favour ideas. We’ve chosen six fun and functional favour ideas for your guests to take home, all with a wintry theme. Our ideas for simple Christmas wedding favours include items that can easily be DIYed or bought inexpensively at this time of year, either for now or for next year (if you’re that organised!). Your guests will love these little tokens, which add an extra special yuletide touch!
Festive Winter Wedding Favour Ideas
1. Something Sweet To Eat
Who doesn’t love an edible treat? Give your guests fun, festive treats in jars which can be enjoyed after the big day is over. Candy canes, gingerbread men, cookies, peppermint bark, cute s’more treats and even brownie mix jars your guests can bake at home are top of our list. Just how cute are those Naughty n’ Nice favour bags filled with candy canes and chocolate “coal”?
2. Something to Drink
From hot chocolate mixes, festive tea, and coffee blends to mini whiskey bottles, mulled wine sachets and sloe gin, why not give your guests a little something they can enjoy after the celebrations are over? Or, for a sparkling toast at a New Year’s wedding celebration, leave snipes of Prosecco at each guest’s table setting! We have more New Year’s Eve wedding favour ideas here.
3. Something To Decorate
Fuel the festive spirit with Christmas decoration favours that guests can bring home and place on their own Christmas tree year after year. These are also great for doubling up as escort and place cards for your guests.
4. Something To Grow
What could be cuter than a mini tree or Christmas tree seeds as a sustainable wedding favour? Your guests can bring these home and decorate or even plant as a reminder of your big day. We have more grow-it-yourself favour ideas here.
5. Something To Keep Cosy
Keep your guests nice and toasty with some winter warmers such as blankets and pashminas, hand warmers, gloves and fuzzy socks. You could even add a sign that reads, “To have and to hold in case you get cold.” We also love the pinecone fire starter wedding favours spotted over on Something Turquoise. Place them at each table setting or in a basket for each guest to take on their way home.
6. Something To Sparkle
Light up the end of your magical night with a festive sparkler or confetti pop send-off! Provide your guests with mini sparklers and add a personalised tag and mini box of matches or, leave a fun confetti popper at their place setting for your first dance or exit. Just make sure to check with the venue first!
