1. Tote Bags
Fantastic for any season and oh-so useful, personalized tote bags make excellent wedding favors. Plain tote bags are cheap, and they are easy to personalize yourself, should you would like to create your own wedding favors. Short on time? Some wedding shops offer personalized bags, but they will cost you more than if you design them yourself.
Having the ideal summer wedding? Candies and chocolates may not be the ideal wedding favor to depart for guests in the hot summer sun. Sunglasses are a terrific way to keep your guests comfortable and to remind them of your special day for years to come. A plus? Frames come in a variety of styles and can be personalized in so many ways. You’re limited only by your imagination! Like tote bags, sunglasses can also be personalized professionally by many party and wedding vendors.
3. S’mores Kits
Best for weddings in late summer or early autumn, individual s’mores kits are another creative alternative to more traditional wedding favors. These can be as basic or as decadent as you prefer, and thus they could work for almost any budget. All you need are some graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars and cute craft supplies to make these cute and memorable gifts to your guests.
A bit more on the traditional side, personalized candy wrappers and candy seem to be mainstays when it comes to wedding favors. From these oft-present Jordan almonds into the more contemporary chocolate bars, this is another easy and affordable way to add a personal touch to your wedding. Choose your candy and pick out those personalized candy wrappers. It’s a great way to make an impression on wedding guests with a sweet-tooth, and it also makes for a well-appreciated shower or bachelorette party gift.
5. Individual Bath Salts
Do-it-yourself bath salts are all the rage nowadays. Whether they are for personal use, a Christmas gift for a relative or birthday gift for a relative, chances are you’ve already got a recipe or two on one of your Pinterest boards. Individual bath salts are a unique and affordable way to pamper your wedding guests. Luxurious, little jars of bath salt also make wonderful bridal shower favors.
6. Hangover Rescue Kits
As with the other do-it-yourself ideas, this concept is flexible and budget friendly.
Planning a winter wedding? Get your guests in the comfy, cozy mood with these individual hot cocoa favors.

If you like the concept but do not have enough time for a do-it-yourself project, some vendors sell customized hot cocoa packets.
8. Lip Balm
Personalized lip balm is another out-of-the-box concept for a winter wedding favor that offers a lot of flexibility. If you’re trying for more expression or you are interested in saving a little money for your honeymoon, you can make your own lip balm favors in a variety of unique flavors and scents. Much like the other ideas above, you may also buy personalized lip balm or do-it-yourself kits from vendors, in the event you have to save yourself some time and energy. Either way, lip balm can be an interesting and functional wedding favor for your guests.
You probably already know that sachets are small bags of perfumed blossoms or aromatic herbs that people typically place in drawers or cabinets to create the space smell pleasant.
