A stroopwafel wedding favor? Yes, please! This isn’t necessarily a typical choice, but that’s exactly why we love it. These Dutch sweet treats are made by an Etsy shop called Gourmet Wedding Gifts and they’re cooked in the shape of a heart because, well, love. Shoppers can choose a classic or dark chocolate stroopwafel, or even create a custom flavor of their own. You can also pick a sticker to go on each individually packaged stroopwafel with your wedding details.
Who doesn’t love Mike’s Hot Honey? It’s great on pizza, fried chicken and roasted Brussels sprouts, so why not give your wedding guests a small jar of the tasty condiment to take home after you say "I Do?" Luckily, the New York-based company sells mini jars of the stuff that are as cute as they are delicious. While there’s no option to create a custom label, you can always get a little creative and plop a special sticker on these puppies yourself.
If you like the idea of giving your wedding guests some honey as a parting gift, but aren’t sure if they’ll dig the heat of Mike’s, try these little jars of clover honey from Favors LTD. They’re filled with American-made gourmet clover Grade A honey and can be ordered with a customizable label. If you go the label route, each label will have a honeycomb pattern in honey-gold and white with your names and wedding date. Additionally, each jar will be decorated with a white-organza ribbon and bow, as well as a bronze bee charm.
If you want to really give your wedding guests something to remember, go ahead and send them home with a bottle of wine. Not only can you choose from some pretty delicious blends from Windsor Vineyards, but the California winery will also adorn each bottle with a personalized label of your choice.
Or, if you’re looking for something a tad more celebratory, you could bid your guests adieu with mini Champagne bottles. A San Diego-based company called Etching Expressions can even etch your wedding details into each bottle so the gift is really personal. Customers first pick their preferred bubbly, and then they can choose which design and what text they want engraved into each bottle. Talk about a classy parting gift!
Any salt water taffy lovers out there will be thrilled to know that The Taffy Shop in Estes Park, Colorado, will easily create some custom taffy bundles for your special day. Not only can you choose the size of each wedding favor, but you can also pick your own flavors (choices include blueberry and salted caramel with sea salt) and a special color and flavor combination. As if that wasn’t enough, The Taffy Shop can also create custom stickers with your wedding details to go on each party favor.
You can always (and we mean always) find a use or two for some olive oil, which is why individual bottles of the tasty stuff make for one pragmatic party favor. An Etsy shop called The Greek Pantry not only lets you add a personalized tag to each bottle, but you can also pick what kind of olive oil goes inside. Options include rosemary and basil and chili.
If you’re planning on tying the knot in the fall or winter, this is quite the apropos wedding favor. AproposRoasters crafts individual boxes filled with gourmet cocoa, mini-marshmallows and an instruction card. All you need to do to make your comforting drink is add hot water. You can pick the twine used to tie each box as well as the ink color used to deliver a custom message to your guests.
If you’re in the market for something that’s both sweet and salty, try some individually wrapped bags of popcorn from The Popcorn Factory. The bags come unmarked, but you can order custom stickers to pop on each one if you want a bit more of a personal touch. And if you’re not really a caramel corn fan, The Popcorn Factory also sells single-serve bags of Cornfusion — butter, cheese and caramel popcorn mixed together — white cheddar popcorn, and cheese popcorn.
No one ever needs an excuse to enjoy a cup of coffee, but if you’re expecting your wedding to go into the wee hours of the morning, your guests might appreciate a good cup of joe once the sun comes up. From the Grounds Up sells single-serve coffee bags filled with fresh roasted, organic, fair-trade coffee for your nuptials. You can ask for beans or grounds and also have the option to choose a custom sticker to put on the bag the java comes in. Each bag brews 2-3 cups of coffee.
Not a coffee fan? Beau Coup will create custom tea tins for your guests filled with, well, tea. The tins come in three sizes and each one features a label with your choice of design and color as well as your added personalization. Each sachet brews two delicious cups of tea, offered in a variety of flavors. The best part? Your guests can hang on to their tins as a keepsake and use them long after your wedding day.
What’s better than a mini mason jar, you ask? A mini mason jar filled with pie. Custom Love Gifts bakes little handmade pies and serves them to guests in a mason jar. Pie flavors include peach, apple, blueberry and more. You can pick what color ribbon is tied around each jar and even add wooden forks to your order for $0.40 a pop. Yum!
Arizona-based Růže Cake House can whip up a variety of wedding favors including cupcakes, sugar cookies and macaroons. We’re partial to the latter because they’re just so darn cute.

The macarons can be customized with text such as a wedding date and the couple’s initials, and can also be wrapped in individual boxes with a label of your choice if you really want to go all out.
