    This might be a good treat for receptions held at night. Guests will get to bring home a quintessential late-night snack, and writing a sweet note like "S'more love" adds the perfect tie-in to your wedding.

    You can find treat bags at craft stores and bargain stores like Walmart. If you want to buy them online, I found some selling on Amazon for $10 for 100 pieces and on Papermart for around $14 for 1,000 pieces. Customize them yourself with some pretty calligraphy.

    Spices are definitely a favor that will have a spot in every guest's pantry. We love this idea of letting guests choose sweet or spicy!

  • Seeds


    Many people give out seeds as wedding favors because not only are they affordable, but they're also an eco-friendly gesture. However, keep in mind that not everyone has the space in their home or a yard to grow plants.

    You can make the seed packets yourself or buy customized ones online. We found these cute kraft-seed envelopes on Etsy that are selling for $90 per 100 pieces — that's $0.90 per envelope.

  • Recipes and Ingredients

    These pretty recipe cards ($8 for 12) are perfect for sharing your favorite secret or not-so-secret recipe that everyone always asks you about. You can even include one of the recipe's ingredients to go along with the wedding favor. Get cheap cloth sachets at craft stores or online from Papermart for $0.25.
