When it comes to gifting favors for a winter wedding, you might want to get creative. Since it’s cold outside and often dull and depressing, spicing things up inside your reception hall can breathe new life into your special day. Check out the adorable wedding favors below that allow you to say ‘thank you’ to the people who make your big day super-special.
One of the cutest ideas ever is Christmas cookies, but not just any cookie for a wedding. Order a custom stamp online with your initials or new last name, even a simple ‘thank you’ can be cute. Bake simple sugar cookies with your stamp pressed in and ice them with your wedding theme colors. Serve with spiked hot chocolate instead of a champagne reception.
Candy Cane Vodka
You don’t have to go all out in the winter, to make people feel special. Crush candy canes and place 4 Tbsp. in re-sealable bottles, like mini-mason jars or soda bottles. Top with vodka. Let itsit in a cool, dry place for ten days or until the candy cane dissolves. Include a cute thank you note and recipe to serve it with soda water or with 1 1/4 ounces vanilla vodka and 1 1/4 ounces white crème de cacao for a peppermint martini.
Winter Warmer Swag Bags
Do a winter warmer version of a swag bag, and pack it full of sweet treats. Think hand warmers, hot cocoa, mini-candy canes, Chex mix, cookies, a bottle of seasonal beer, some ibuprofen, and a bottle of water. Instead of a bag, use an adorable Christmas mug from the Dollar Tree.
Sparklers were once and outdoor item exclusively, but now you can buy smokeless sparklers for weddings so they can be used indoors! Made from special compounds, wedding sparklers produce no smoke so they can be used without ventilation. Plus, since they burn super-hot, they are a great way to add some additional warmth to your winter wedding reception.
Build an outdoor fire pit for a little cozy time outside. Place s’mores kits at each guest’s place setting. Include graham crackers, chocolate bars, and marshmallows. Have skewers by the fire for the marshmallows and tell your guests to enjoy a cozy, memorable moment on you!
Whether you go for something edible or something fun, a little creativity can go a long way towards making your winter wedding reception much more warm and inviting to your guests!
