Our Favorite Cold – Weather Wedding Favors
As temperatures start to drop, we see a change in the types of favors that couples are gifting their wedding guests. They’re seasonally inspired and often have a tie-in to the weather – whether the leaves are just hitting the ground or snow is swirling in the air. Take a look at some of our favorite cold-weather wedding favors, perfect for treating guests at your fall or winter nuptials.
Hot Chocolate Bombs
A treat that has been especially popular in recent years are hot chocolate bombs. Chocolate shells packed with cocoa mix, and maybe even some marshmallows, are a nostalgia-inducing favor. For an extra luxe gift, pack them in personalized mugs or tumblers.
Pinecone Bird Feeders
An eco-conscious gift, pinecone bird feeders are unique and memorable. They also serve as a much bigger gift, allowing guests to birdwatch from the comfort of their home. What used to be a fun activity for kids, and that required mounds of birdseed and peanut butter, comes ready to tie to a tree. Pack it in plastic or small box to keep it mess free.
If you are hosting an outdoor wedding, consider gifting your guests a set of hand warmers. They don’t have to be fancy, yet they remain a thoughtful favor that will serve to keep guests cozy. If you have a slightly larger budget, you can go as big as personal blankets for guests to wrap up in.
Thermos or Yeti Mugs
Thermos or Yeti mugs are a higher cost wedding favor, but they are a gift that guests will use for years to come. We recommend finding an option with a handle that will be easier for guests to carry when wearing bulky gloves. Personalize them and they can also be used as escort cards.
A Seasonal Treat
If you love to bake, you might treat your guests to some home-baked goodies. Even better, make a seasonal favorite that will leave guests raving like caramel apples, some sort of brittle or bark, or a small helping of fudge.
It’s not surprising that ornaments would make it onto the list. Ornaments are the perfect seasonal wedding favor, especially if you are hosting on or around Christmas. We recommend finding an ornament that is timeless and that your guests would be happy to put on their tree every year.
Along with cooler weather comes issues with keeping your skin moisturized. A sweet way to gift guests is with a small self-care bundle, packed with some of the essentials. It could include a seasonally scented lip balm, a small tube of hand cream, and maybe a pair of warm socks.
