Winter is an incredibly special time of the year to throw a wedding. The chilly weather and holiday spirit inspire unique ideas that you simply can’t pull off with a spring or summer wedding – and these ideas can easily extend to the wedding favors. If you are throwing a winter wedding, consider one of these fun and creative favor ideas to allow your guests to enjoy the cheer of the season.
Let Guests Cozy Up with a Mug of Hot Cocoa
No one can say no to a warm mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter night. Cater to guests’ sweet tooth by creating a DIY hot cocoa kit – and don’t leave out the marshmallows! You can even provide on-theme mugs as well so that they have a small memento to remember the night.
Take the Adult Beverage Route with a Winter Cocktail Kit
If you are looking for a more “grown-up” option, create a cocktail kit for guests to enjoy after the celebration. Mulled wine sachets will always be a hit during this time of the year, as will rum or whiskey. Mini champagne bottles are also festive and fun.
Huddle Around the Fire with a S’mores Kit
A s’mores kit is another sweet and easy DIY winter wedding favor idea that your guests will love. If you have a fire pit at your venue, be sure to allow guests to enjoy their treats with each other before the night ends!
Keep Guests Bundled Up with a Personalized Blanket
Guests will surely be thankful if you send them home with a blanket to stay cozy with this winter season! They may also be helpful during the ceremony or reception if you have any venue space outdoors. Take this gift to a personal level by adding a monogram with your initials and the date of your wedding.
Have Fun (and Stay Warm!) with Fuzzy Socks
Fuzzy socks are a unique and light-hearted nod towards the cold weather outside – and they’ll be super useful for guests long after the wedding. Pick up a bunch of different patterns that fit in with your wedding color palette, and let guests pick the style that speaks to them the most!
Add to Guests’ Holiday Decor with an Ornament
If you are throwing your wedding right around the holidays, why not play into the season with a little something to help bring in the holiday cheer? Send guests home with a sweet ornament that they can pull out during the holidays for years to come. It will be a sweet, memorable touch to your guests’ holiday decor.
Gift Coffee Grounds for Guests to Enjoy the Next Morning
If you are a coffee aficionado, get packets of ground coffee from one of your favorite local cafes. More of a tea fan? Treat guests to your go-to tea bags. Guests will surely enjoy this personal, warm cup of coffee or tea the morning after the celebration!
Add a Warm Glow with Candles
Guests are surely breaking out the candles during this time of the year, so pick out your favorite winter scent for guests to enjoy once they return home from the celebration. For a personal touch that reminds guests of your wedding, be sure to find candle holders or tins that match your wedding color scheme.
