Favour boxes are a thoughtful way of saying "thank you" to the guests who came to your wedding. Any token of appreciation can be put inside these little boxes. These days, brides have so many options to choose from and it can be quite a task to choose the best tokens. As they say, good things come in small packages and unique tokens inside favour boxes will surely be appreciated by your guests and will be a reminder of your happy day.

Edible Wedding Favours

Your guests will be delighted to bring home a box of sugary sweets. You can put a mini cupcake inside your favour box or a bunch of mini treats such as candy-coated chocolate, jelly beans or candy-coated almonds. Chocolate is prone to melting especially in warm weather so be sure to put paper lining inside so that the sweets won't stick to the box. You can even use a cupcake liner for this purpose since they fit inside favour boxes.

Personalised Wedding Favours

Everything can be personalised nowadays, and adding your initials to your tokens can add your personal touch to anything. Mini scented soaps engraved with your initials are sure to delight, as will monogrammed scented candles and mini tins of lip balm. You can also add your photos on tokens such as coasters, refrigerator magnets and key chains. Even the ribbon that you tie your box with can be personalised with your initials or names.

Practical Wedding Favours

Giving gifts that your guests can use even after the wedding is practical and will be much appreciated. Bottle stoppers, bottle openers, tea cups, cheese graters, and salt and pepper shakers are household items found small enough to fit inside your favour box.

Many couples are choosing to go "green" and one way of doing that is giving eco-friendly favours to their guests. Garden seeds can be wrapped in paper and put inside the favour box. You can also squeeze in a small foldable reusable bag which guests can use when they go grocery shopping or whenever they need an extra bag. These bags are so compact when folded that they can fit inside a small favour box.
