Having a wedding during the Christmas season brings many possible Christmas wedding favors to mind. Here are 10 ideas that you may want to consider as they are fairly inexpensive, yet thoughtful guest favors.
You can purchase wooden napkin rings in most department stores or craft stores, especially during the holiday season. Paint the rings red, green, silver or gold to match your wedding colors. Add gold foil Christmas stickers around each ring and seal with acrylic sealer for a unique favor idea.
Make your own Christmas pot holders by cutting 6" squares out of quilted Christmas material. Sew a contrasting color of seam binding along the raw edges for a nice finish. Add a small loop at one corner for hanging. If you are skilled at embroidery, include your names and wedding date on the pot holders.
When it comes to Christmas wedding favors, this is a super simple and very inexpensive idea. Simply tie 2 or 3 cinnamon sticks together with Christmas ribbon. Tuck in a sprig of holly beneath ribbon for a decorative touch. An additional suggestion would be to include a recipe card with a Christmas recipe that uses cinnamon sticks.
Buy or make your own personalized Christmas wedding ornaments. Wrap them up in circles of tulle and tie closed with ribbon.
Buy small grapevine wreaths at a local craft store and decorate them with ribbon, holly berries and small dried flowers. Tie a bow to one side and add a loop for hanging in the back.
Select small white and red poinsettia plants to give as Christmas wedding favors. Tie a large Christmas ribbon bow around pot for an added decoration.
Crochet (or have someone do them for you) snowflakes and stiffen with fabric stiffener. While the snowflake is still wet from the stiffener, spring some silver sparkles over top of it. Add a loop to the top to be able to hang on the tree. Place in a small flat box and wrap the box like a Christmas present.
Give your guests some nice (and useful) Christmas coasters. Wrap a big red ribbon around coasters to secure and tie a big bow on top.
Give personal packets of hot chocolate to your guests. Make up some holiday/wedding labels on your computer, print them out and stick to the packets of hot chocolate.
If the two of you have some all-time favorite Christmas foods that you love, get the recipes together and type them up into a small recipe book.
All of the above suggestions work very well as Christmas wedding favors. Don't forget to include Christmas themed favor tags too! Add a short quote or verse to reflect the season, along with your names and wedding date.
