Some brides have said that traditional wedding favours are just a bit… boring. If you’re one of those brides – we hear you! The chocolate almonds may be the tradition, but nowadays so many couples have a completely unique wedding… why not have unique favours too! You’re guaranteed to find something unusual here, we promise!

Instead of buying favours and boxes to present them in, why not get ones that are already gift boxed? Have a look at these candles – they are not only practical, but guaranteed to make the guests smile. And who doesn’t like candles?

Weddings with a travel theme have been more and more popular lately, and that’s no surprise considering how many couples have spent their pre-wedding years travelling together. We have seen table plans, invitations and reception table centrepieces beautifully done with this theme – and of course the favours!

Photo frames – they make great gifts for any occasion, and great favours too! Guaranteed not to be left behind by the guests, and in a choice of colours and sizes, it’s a perfect favour option.
If you’re having a garden theme, forest theme, or autumn theme – the examples below are perfect for you! Chances are your guests won’t expect these gorgeous leaf lanterns or wooden tree design boxes, which they can keep and use to store trinkets at home.

If you’re going for a romantic theme with an unusual twist, have a look at these! The Cinderella carriage candle is hugely popular with brides having “fairytale” weddings. And for practical favours, you can choose from a huge selection of wine stoppers, or an unusual mini grater, or bride and groom fridge magnets!

For the weddings with a fun twist, go for a vintage car candle – an ideal favour for the male guests! Gumball machines will be loved by children and adults alike. And if you’re having a love birds or garden theme, you can do away with the traditional cube boxes and use the cute bird houses instead!
