BY Sakshi | 04 Apr, 2019 | 28440 views | 7 min read

Favours and gifts for the people who make your wedding special. It's always a great idea to give some sweet little things to the people who take out time to come be a part of your big day, and whether they are gifts for bridesmaids, or personalised wedding gifts or even a gifts with the wedding invites, these days there are so many things to choose from. So here are some common and some unique gifting ideas to take a pick from, which we have divided into these categories:

So let's go ahead and dive right into it- here are favours from a few common ones to some unique ones, budget options and those that might require you to splurge a little bit, but all things that will make your guests happy we are sure!

Edible Favours

Favours which not only are yum to eat, but also look festive and happy! The packaging will matter a lot for this one, and if you don't want to give the same old mithai dabba or dry fruits along with your wedding invite or at any of the functions, then here are some cool ones for you to consider!

Henna cupcakes and cookies

How cute do these look? Henna themed sugar cookies or cupcakes are so adorable, and a great edible gift to give along with the wedding invite or on the Mehendi. 

Flavoured sugars

This is another new thing we saw a bride give out on her wedding- flavoured sugar, tea, coffee- all of these are such good options to give, especially when packed so cutely like this. 

Macarons

Who doesn't love them? And a lot of guests might not have had them before, so you can consider this as a favour too. There are so many options like plain ones, ones with henna designs on them or even custom printed ones with your names on it. 

Spices

If you're having your wedding at a place which is famous for its spices like Kerala, Ooty or Sri Lanka, then you could consider giving this away as favours. 

Mukhwas

Mukhwas is another easy peasy gift to give, especially when packed in such a nice way!

Mehendi Favours

When you think of the mehendi, you think festive, bright and happy things! Here are some favours which might be specific to the Mehendi event, and make for great giveaways or gifts especially for the Mehendi. 

Sunglass cases

How cute are these sunglass cases with the brocade and lace work? There are a lot more types available if you're looking for something more trendy, but these make for amazing giveaways! 

Pouches and Potlis

Pretty pouches and potlis- whether it is to carry by themselves or with some bits and baubles inside- these make for nice Mehendi favors. 

Personalised totes

These are also so cute- make for great gift for the Mehendi, and you can even have the ones for your bridesmaids personalised and give the others plain totes or something with your wedding logo. 

Pocket diaries with traditional prints

Pretty notebooks for their bags, you can get so many options- with ikat prints, Indian designs or even Mandala ones.

Look so happy and Mehendi-appropriate! Happy happy with all the colour and the gota work. 

Pompom keychains

Another small little thing for the guests to pick up and take with them. And if they are happy and festive, then nothing like it. 

Brocade boxes

These boxes look so pretty, and you can add just about anything to them or give them away for the guests to store their bits and baubles. 

Wedding Favours

These are some nice classy favours that you can consider to give on your wedding day- from budget to slightly expensive options which are perfect to giveaway as wedding favours, whether it is as a thank you gesture when the guests are leaving, or to leave on their chairs or tables for them to find during the ceremony! 

Scented candles

Scented candles especially luxurious ones are something everyone will love and cherish! You can get a lot of different varieties or give away what is your fave scent or something that goes with your wedding theme. 

Pins and Badges

What was started by one bride has become a trend now, and these are extremely popular these days, as badges and even as hair accessories. 

Cocktail kits

DIY Cocktail kits are great favours to give out on the wedding too, especially to your close friends like the bridesmaids and the groomsmen. Just throw in some small little things like alcohol miniatures, a shot glass and some peanuts in some cute packaging. 

Chai or coffee hampers

This is also a great wedding favor we came across. Chai and coffee hampers with some nice tea / coffee, glasses and a cute little kettle in that delightful packaging. 

Tiki cocktail glasses

Tiki mugs or shot glasses also make for good wedding favours for the guests, and especially if you have a crowd that's fond of drinking!

Customised perfumes

This couple got a signature scent made and gave it to all of their wedding guests with some cute personalised packaging too.

These are roses and arrangements that last upto a year, so it actually makes sense to give these to guests! Something beautiful and unique!

Luggage tags

A cute idea for a destination wedding, this couple decided to put them for their guests on their wedding chairs!

Plantable pencils

Eco-friendly gifts are also gaining a lot of popularity at weddings, and this one is such a neat idea and looks super cute too. 

Potted plants

Again, something that is great to give if you want to go green at your wedding, and while potted plants might be a better option for a local wedding, seeds and seed bombs are a better idea for a destination wedding.

If its an outdoor wedding, then this is something that might come handy for a lot of guests!

Sanitisers
