How magical it is to tie the knot in the wintertime! The holiday spirit is everywhere, yuletide decorations adorn homes and shop windows, and there’s that mix of celebration and nostalgia in the air. Capture all that in your wedding plans—including the thank-you favors you’ll give to guests.
With all the holiday goodies available at this time, edible gift items are a logical and lovely choice! You may give home baked treats for something truly special, or you can package ready-to-give candies, cookies, or chocolates to match your wedding motif. Either way, something yummy and sweet is always appreciated!
Prepare Candy-filled Party Crackers
Combine practical and delicious in “party crackers” that are actually holiday napkins rolled around Christmas candies and wrapped in clear cello.
Mimic the look of party crackers so popular around Christmas and New Year’s with yummy treats in cello-wrapped rolls. Our example includes a practical gift, too—a pair of holiday cocktail napkins with foil-wrapped chocolate balls rolled up inside them.
You could do the same with a Christmas tea towel, small face towels, or even a set of cloth coasters. Then, choose a favorite holiday candy, like peppermint taffy, Hershey’s green and red Kisses, toffee or caramel chews, chocolate truffles, or chocolate-covered candy canes—and wrap them up party cracker style!
Glam Up Holiday-Baked Treats
See how stacks of pretty cookies get a holiday look with simple sweet bows of satin ribbon and tags in the shape of Christmas balls.
If home-baking your edible favors may seem a bit much (especially amidst the holiday rush!), no worries. Holiday season vendors have choices galore of amazingly delicious and fabulous-looking cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, bars, and more! Simply take your pick from those that suit your wedding theme and your budget—then package them in keeping with the season.
Think of creative packaging accents! It could be something as doable as satin ribbon tied around a stack of cookies, to elegant foil-lined gift boxes, to elegant wraps in festive Christmas red. Then, add festive accents like tiny sleigh bells, miniature ornaments, snowflakes, or sprigs of holly.
Try Ready-to-Use Favor Packaging that is Simple
Sweet treats like almond cookies and gold chocolate coins look even more scrumptious in pretty packaging.
Of course, there are also ready-to-use boxes, bags, and pouches for presenting your edible treats in style. Depending on your color palette and your wedding theme, lovely choices would be tulle favor purses perfect for holding iced sugar cookies, cake bites, macarons, or meringues; or sheer embroidered pouches for giving chocolates, or packets of Christmas-flavored teas. Just attach favor tags with your names and wedding date, and these are ready for giving!
Give Nostalgic Gingerbread Cookies
Delight guests with nostalgic gingerbread cookies packaged in clear cello bags trimmed with silver tinsel! Aren’t these mini ones adorable?
Who doesn’t love those charming little gingerbread figures from childhood? Bake up several batches prior to the Big Day, add some whimsical features, put the cookies in cello bags, glassine envelopes, or clear acetate boxes, and adorn each package with silver tinsel and a favor tag! Dust them with some powdered sugar for a “snowy” finish.
Along with the cookies, you could enclose recipe cards for different variations of gingerbread treats like butterscotch gingerbread, and other holiday favorites, like almond cookie cutouts, peppermint bark, cherry chocolate cookies, Russian tea cookies, and so many more!
