Holiday Goodies to Give as Christmas Favors

Holiday Goodies

Sharing our own edible favor ideas for a yuletide season wedding was such a treat for us! We just had to search for more tempting ideas for holiday goodies to pass on to you.

Maybe it’s the gift-giving spirit in the air, the fabulous packaging materials available, plus all the scrumptious cooking and baking that goes on come Christmas time. But the options for edible favors for a Christmas wedding are practically endless. The dilemma, then, becomes what and how to choose.

Check out These Unique and Simple Ideas from Some Cool Blogs

Ideas for Christmas goodies

Idea #1: Peppermint bark! This crunchy, minty holiday favorite (found with a full recipe from The Long Thread via Exquisite Events Seattle) would be a big hit among your guests. You could package these in reusable mason jars, glassine bags, clear acetate boxes, or simple eco-friendly brown board cartons. Tie on a stripey red ribbon and they’re ready!

Idea #2: Aren’t these pies-in-a-jar from Our Best Bites (via Bow Ties and Bliss) just the sweetest? What a treat to have guests open up the fabric-covered lids and discover charming holiday cutout designs atop each pie crust! Perfect for a “country style” handmade wedding theme.

Idea #3: Think that Christmas cookies tend to be too cutesy and kitschy to give as wedding favors? Not these stylish beauties from Cookie Creatives. We just love the elegant color choice and the artistic iced design. Imagine your guests’ delight at receiving a package of these to take home!

Idea #4: “Edible” need not be limited to baked goods and candies. For a wintertime wedding, why not treat guests to a jarful of ingredients for a well-loved holiday beverage—like this charmer from Oh Hello Friend (via Bow Ties and Bliss)? Great choices would be hot chocolate (those heart-cutout marshmallows are too cute!), egg nog, apple cider, or even freshly-ground coffee. A doily label and baker’s twine add to the charm!
