Inexpensive Wedding Favor Ideas

Your guests travel near and far to share in your wedding-day celebration. They buy presents, take off work, book hotel rooms, flights, and are doing it all out of love for you and your significant other. Being able to thank them in any way possible will be extremely appreciated and doesn't have to break your bank. Don't waste your money on gifts that your guests will just end up throwing away or leaving on the tables. Instead, consider these fun and inexpensive wedding favor ideas that your guests will actually want to receive! From edible treats to personalized gifts, get inspired by these fun items that will be the talk of your reception!

Inexpensive wedding favor ideas your guests will love.

If you've been on Pinterest or looked at blogs, you've probably seen a million different ideas that you absolutely adore--until you realize how spendy they actually are. Obviously, when deciding on the types of gifts to give out, you'll need to consider your overall budget. Try to keep your costs under $2 per guests. Depending on the items that you're handing out, you can even choose to just give one to each household.

Sweet Treats

Not only is a candy bar aesthetically pleasing and super delicious, but it also serves a dual purpose as an edible wedding favor! Each of your guests can take home a bag of treats that they'll be able to snack on for days.

Other tasty ideas:

  • 'Smores
  • Macaroons

    Homemade Goodies

    Perhaps you and/or your spouse have a hobby that would be perfect items to give away! We've seen couples give out homemade honey, jams, beer, and even cookies. If you're the craftier type, consider some DIY projects like coasters and soaps. Buy ingredients and supplies in bulk and keep your packaging costs low, and you'll have cost-effective, homemade goodies!

    Other homemade ideas:

    • Butter
    • Olive oil
    • Spices
    • Candles

      Personalized Gifts

      Screen printing and monogramming is a huge thing right now, and when you keep your artwork simple and find an affordable company, it doesn't end up being too expensive at all! Items such as sunglasses and can coozies tend to be a huge hit!

      Other personalized ideas:

      • Pens
      • Matchboxes
      • Candy or mint tins
