The art of the wedding favour is not one easy to master. The perfect favour should reflect the couple-to-be, express gratitude to guests for joining you on your special day, and give everyone something to remember the occasion by. Don’t feel the need to hit a certain criterion or price point—putting your guests’ names on a gift is nice, but not a necessity. What is truly important is finding a favour that you feel excited to hand out, whether it is a practical item guests can use for years on end, or a decor piece they’ll leave on the mantel. There is no wrong answer—if in doubt, go with your heart. This is a celebration of love, after all.
Here, find Vogue’s selection of special gifts you can distribute at your wedding party to ensure guests go home happy—from local artisanal tea brands to green-thumbed succulent nurseries.
