Wedding favors are a great way to show your guests how grateful you are that they shared your big day with you. Some brides and grooms select one type of favor to offer to both their female and male friends and family members. However, you can take a customized approach and give your wedding guests special his and hers favors. Here are a few wedding reception ideas for the perfect gifts to give your guests:
Cologne - Pick up small containers of men's cologne and place them in personalized favor boxes. Your male guests will love their new scent.
Potted plant - Succulents are thick, sturdy plants, which makes them a great gift for the men at your wedding reception. Tie each with a ribbon for a decorative touch.
Decorative bottle openers - Another fun idea is to find decorative bottle openers and stick those in your favor bags as well.
Shot glasses - Personalize shot glasses by writing the initials of a male wedding guest on each one. The guys will love having their own special glass.
Spirits - Pick up mini bottles of bourbon, vodka and tequila and place them in containers along with the shot glasses. It's the perfect favor for your adult guests.
Candles - For the ladies, give them the gift of a soothing and relaxing evening with a scented candle. Find some votives with vibrant colors or subtle tones.
Tinted lip balm - Tinted lip balm is another great favor for female wedding guests. Gals will stash it inside their bags for easy access whenever they need a touch up.
Mini nail polish - Find some inexpensive nail polishes that you can toss into your wedding favors bags. Then you can save money for your chic wedding invitations. Give each guest one color, or gift every person a range of hues.
Perfume - Women love smelling good too, so provide them with small bottles of perfume. Find something appealing to a wide variety of aesthetics?, like a vanilla scent.
Sweet treat - Mini pies are the perfect addition to your wedding favors. Ladies will enjoy the taste of cherry, apple or peach flavors.
Some of these favors overlap between men and women. So if you believe your male guests will enjoy a scented candle, go ahead and offer the votives to them as well. And if the ladies will love personalized shot glasses, make some for them too.
