11 Wedding Favor Ideas That Work for Any Season

If you’re in need of a great wedding favor idea, you can go a few different routes: Think seasonal and local, go with edible treats or stick to something that’s foolproof year-round. But remember, when it comes to wedding favors, don’t overthink it. Your favors are a little extra something to show your guests how much you appreciate them. To make sure they actually take them home at the end of the night, keep your favors fun, easy, small and useful. Here are a few perennial favorites everyone will enjoy, no matter the season.

  1. 1. Donate to Charity in Their Names

    Instead of handing out physical favors, donate a certain amount of money to a foundation you care about in your guests’ names. Need philanthropy ideas? Donate to VOW, the charity campaign raising money for the Girls First Fund to end child marriage worldwide. Every year, 12 million girls are married before turning 18, cutting off their education and putting them at risk for violence and poverty. VOW funds local organizations all over the globe advocating girls’ rights and standing up against child marriage at the community level. (See how easy it is to link VOW to your retail registry though The Knot Gifts Back here.)

  2. 2. Custom Cookies

    A picture frame for every guest is the perfect blank canvas favor they can do with as they please. If you plan to stamp each frame with your wedding date, names or initials, we recommend doing it subtly on the bottom or the back.
