Top 9 Winter Wedding Favors

Gingerbread Cookies

Treat guests to this quintessential winter indulgence. Package the cookies in cellophane and tie each off with a ribbon that matches your wedding colors. Guests can grab the sweet treat and tuck it in their purse or pocket as they leave.


Everyone loves chocolate, and for that reason, it’s a wedding favor staple. Chocolates in the shape of snowflakes make decidedly elegant (and wintery) favors, perfect for a ball room wedding. Display them in individual boxes at each place setting or on trays near the dessert table.

Mini Ice Wine Bottles

Ice wine, produced from grapes that have been picked while still frozen on the vine, has a taste that’s sure to wow. Give mini ice wine bottles to all your guests as a sweet thank-you and personalize the labels with your names and wedding date.

Hot Chocolate Mix

Packets of hot chocolate mix are perfect for welcome baskets and reception favors alike. Buy them prepackaged decorated with snowflakes or personalized with cute sayings, like “The Perfect Blend,” and don’t forget the marshmallows.


Give out chestnuts wrapped up in small pouches, or take another approach and look into having your caterer set up a roasting station so that guests can take home the freshly warmed treats at the end of the night.

Soy Candles

Capture the crispness of winter with soy candles in spiced sugar plum, cedar, or orange clove scents to give to your guests. Attach place cards to each or package them in pretty boxes that match your color scheme.

Individual Pecan Pie Tarts

Not to upstage the cake, but individual pecan tarts can leave a lasting impression. Place them on a dessert table in small boxes for the taking, or leave one at each place setting.

Citrus Marmalade

Whether you buy it or make it yourself, citrus marmalade is an in-season favor that looks great in a favor display. Package the sweet spread into mini jars ; cover each jar lid with fabric to match your wedding day colors; and tie them off with a thin piece of raffia and a small note thanking your guests for their attendance.

Chocolate-Covered Cranberries

You can’t go wrong with cranberries coated in chocolate. Tie them off in small bags and place one at each setting, or arrange for your coat-check person to hand them to your guests on their way out the door at the end of the evening.
