20 Wedding Favors You Can Customize That Guests Will Actually Use
Author: Whitney Hollingshead
If you plan to give out wedding favors, the best favors are those that your guests will actually use and appreciate. Today and next Monday we will post 20 really cool favor ideas that will inspire you to create custom favors that fit your style and love story:
Price per favor = $1.19 and up
The odds are that nearly every guest attending your wedding has more than one personal media device. Why not give your guests earbuds in a case customized for your wedding? Guests can put this set of earbuds in their purses, carry-on luggage, glove compartments, etc. Everyone will appreciate this extra set and the custom case will remind them of you every time they plug them in. Check out these examples.
2. Hand Sanitizer
Price per favor = $0.78 and up
Travel size hand sanitizer is so very handy. Add your own personal label for a favor that is sure to go wherever your guests go. Choose from gels, wipes, pens, sprays, and more as shown here.
3. Waterproof Media Pouches
Price per favor = $2.09 and up
You can customize cute little waterproof pouches that guests can use to keep their electronics safe and dry. Every time they hit the pool or visit the beach, they will think of your wedding with fondness. See examples here.
4. Pizza Cutters
Price per favor = $0.76 and up
If pizza is part of your love story or if you both just really love pizza, then personalized pizza cutters are a great way to share your love of pizza with your guests. Attach a fun note to one of these examples.
5. Water Bottles
Price per favor = $0.82 and up
Encourage your guests to drink more water and enjoy the benefits of improved health by providing custom water bottles. Turn your initials and your wedding date into a cool logo that will subtly remind your guests of you often, while not looking like a tacky wedding logo. For example you could add “JNL421” to water bottles for Jeremy and Nicole Larsen married April 21st. Check out these cool water bottles.
6. USB Car Chargers
Price per favor = $1.59 and up
You have most likely experienced the frustration of having your phone or another device die while away from home. Having a USB car charger makes all of the difference! This is one gift you can customize as a wedding favor that may very well get used every day. You can even choose car chargers that have more than one USB port, enabling your guests to charge multiple devices at once! Check out just a few of the many options here.
7. Golf Tees
Price per favor = $0.43 and up
If golf is connected to your love story in any way, golf tees are a great favor for your guests. (Especially if you know that many of your guests also play golf.) Instead of your wedding info, you can simply create a fresh logo merging your first names, or simply use your married last name as the brand. Check out these examples.
8. Car Air Fresheners
Price per favor = $0.99 and up
Choose an aromatic scent that is appreciated universally and add a cute personal design to an air freshener like one of these. Every time your guests climb into the car they will think of you and appreciate the instantaneous mood lifting power of your favor.
9. USB Drives
Price per favor = $5.33 and up
Everyone needs a USB to transfer pictures, video, and data on the go. So why not customize a flash drive for your guests?! You can even make this favor really personal by loading a short video on to each drive thanking everyone for being a part of your special day. This favor is more expensive, however, so this favor is most ideal for smaller weddings, or if you have a large budget available for favors. You can see a variety of options here.
Price per favor = $0.45 and up
If you are into favors with cheesy phrases attached, consider handing out customized highlighters. You can add a note that says something like “Sharing our special day with you has been a highlight for us.” Check out the options here.
Remember, the very best wedding favor is any item that guests will actually use. If possible you can even connect a useful favor to some part of your own love story. So use the ideas above to get inspired and start planning the perfect favors for your perfect wedding. Check out the blog next Monday for 10 more excellent ideas for you useful wedding favors!
