Wedding favors are a traditional way to thank guests for their attendance at your wedding, but sometimes it can be tricky to think of what to give that people will actually want. Since the last thing you want is people leaving their favors on the table rather than remembering to bring them home, we’ve gathered some of the best winter wedding favor ideas that your guests will love.

1. Pine Cone Ornaments

A pinecone and heart ornament for a winter wedding.

Not only are these great for the theme of a winter wedding, but they can also be a DIY project! Collect pine cones and make them into ornaments by tying ribbon or twine to their top and attaching a gift tag. You can make these as simple or as decorated as you please, either leaving them as they are for a more rustic feel or giving them some glam with glitter.

2. Hot Fudge

Everyone loves something warm and gooey in the cold winter months, so give your guests each a little jar of hot fudge! This is a delicious treat they won’t forget.

3. Hot Chocolate Kit

A classic winter confection is hot chocolate, so have kits for each of your guests to take home and enjoy on a snowy day. This is another item you can DIY with mason jars if you choose.

4. Marshmallows

If you want to stick with a hot chocolate theme but don’t want to go with an entire kit, fun marshmallows are another option. Having these in shapes such as snowmen, snowflakes, or even initials is a fun way to put a spin on it.

5. To-Go Cups

Reusable coffee to-go cups are a great favor, and to really bring it to the next level, let your guests fill them with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate on their way out the door of your reception.

6. Snowball Cake Pops

Another sweet option that you can easily customize to fit the winter theme of your wedding is cake pops. Make these look like snowballs with edible glitter or white sprinkles and you’ll have a tasty and festive favor.

7. Winter Flower Bar

Flower bars are gaining popularity at weddings as a way for guests to make their own bouquet to bring home with them. You can make this very winter-friendly by going with a winter color scheme—all whites or even reds and deep hues work. You can also include winter-y accents like holly berries, pine tree springs, and tartan ribbon for guests to use in holding together their custom bouquet.

8. Gloves

Warm the hands of your guests like they’ve warmed your heart by attending your celebration! Gloves in differing colors and sizes tied with a gift tag offering thanks for the attendance of your guests is the perfect winter wedding favor.

9. Immunity Boosting

The winter is known as a time when germs run rampant, so help your guests stay healthy in the form of your wedding favors. Give out hand sanitizer or immune-boosting tea packets to help guests stay healthy and happy well past your wedding day.

10. Popcorn

There’s nothing cozier during the winter than curling up next to the fire and having a movie day! To facilitate this for your loved ones, provide them with flavored popcorn as a wedding favor.

11. Winter Flavored Lollipops

Put a twist on a classic candy with winter flavored lollipops. From eggnog to cranberry to peppermint, there are so many options to give your guests something seasonal and sweet.

12. Winter Hats

Help your guests accessorize in style this winter! Winter knit hats are definitely a pricier favor, but they’re one that are sure to make an impact. You can go with something classic like a beanie or more quirky like a colorful knit hat with a pom-pom on top.

There are so many cute favor options for a winter wedding. Wow your guests and keep things seasonal with these ideas!
