A sentimental gift to keep in mind when styling your wedding is the Wedding Favour. Gone are the days of flavored almonds wrapped in tulle and a ribbon around it. Just like everything else on your special day, it should represent a personalised reflection of the couples love for one another, as well as the gratitude of having the guest attendance. There are endless DIY ideas to create that memorable piece and leave a lasting impression.
Jar of Homemade Jam
Can be pre-made some time ahead of the wedding and everyone can use a beautiful, personalised jam jar to take home. Don’t have time to make your own? You can buy gorgeous handmade jam jars from LoveNestGift on ETSY.
Packaged in a unique bundle, a small message of thanks can be printed on the front for the guests to enjoy for the morning after pick-me-up. Don’t forget to choose organic and fair-trade where possible! You can get jars from a local department store or order from EBAY. You can buy handmade and recycled tags from WashTapeLove on ETSY.
Cactus in Pot/Tin
Nothing is cuter than a mini plant, especially those of the low maintenance variety. Cacti are effective and adorable on any table setting. Don’t have time to make your own? You can purchase pre-made from FairLightBright on ETSY.

Hot Chocolate for one
This is by far one of our favourite DIY wedding favour ideas and not to mention CUTEST! Simply buy the jars and you can use whatever ingredients you like to make for a fun hot chocolate! All your guests have to do is take it home and add it to hot milk! Don’t forget to use cruelty free marshmallows such as Dandies or Sweet n Sara.
If there wasn’t enough at the wedding, then a little happy booze can be a crafty gift for guests to take home. If done tastefully, then it can look really special.
