8 Last Minute Wedding Favour Ideas

Your wedding is mere weeks away, and you still haven’t found “thank you” gifts that your guests will truly appreciate. If you lack the time, resources or Pinterest know-how to make gifts from scratch, here’s a list of fabulous and fun last minute wedding favour ideas.



Though they may not seem very glamorous, personalized coasters can be both cute and practical! Give each guest at least two coasters with your names on them (it’s a set!), and tie them together with a ribbon that matches your décor.

Playing Card Decks


For a favour that is both useful and theme-appropriate, a personalized playing card deck is a memorable gift for a wedding with a Gatsby, Vegas or Black and White theme. Imprint your names on the cards case, or splash your picture on the front face of the cards.

Wine or Bottle Stoppers


Social sippers, avid wine drinkers and beer connoisseurs alike will appreciate wine and bottle stopper favours. These crowd-pleasing wedding favours can be incorporated into a Parisian wedding theme, or offered at any wedding held at a winery or brewery.

Picture Frames


A picture frame favour serves a double purpose: a classic gift that your guests are sure to use, and a creative place card for your tables. It requires minimal time and artistic ability, but it has an optimal effect. A metallic frame is a match for any wedding theme decor.

Gumball Machines


For those vintage, “sugary sweet” weddings, a gumball machine filled with your favourite gumball flavours is the perfect wedding favour. It’s a great novelty item with a long shelf life, and let’s face it… who doesn’t love candy?

Pre-Made Favour Boxes


Give your guests a quantity of something special – like tea leaves, coffee grinds, sand, whatever floats your boat – but make sure to buy favour boxes to hold it all together. From mini purses to Chinese take-out, you can find a creative box to match any theme.

Tealight Holders


If your wedding is more lavish than laid-back, a tealight holder is a sophisticated and decorative favour. Vibrant glass tealight holders are fit for an afternoon wedding, and crystal or frosted glass tealight holders work for an elegant evening affair.

Mini Watering Cans


Mini watering cans are the perfect wedding favours for a rustic or eco-friendly theme. Customize the cans with a bow that matches your colours, and a hanging label (or sticker) with your names on it. Add an in-theme wedding flower for a classic touch!
