Wedding favour sweets are a popular choice any time of year. Whether it’s the traditional sugared almonds or his and her favourites, you can fill yours with whatever takes your fancy. But the perfect finishing touch is always a Gift Tag.

Buying your sweet fillings and containers in bulk will keep your costs low, and you can add the final flourish with foiled, square or traditionally cut wedding favour tags like Gable and Grain.

You’d be surprised the wonder that a simple Sticker can bring to your homemade wedding favours. From adding a fun embellishment to cocktails, lottery tickets and more, there’s a plethora of ways to get creative! We offer Stickers in a variety of sizes, including round, rectangle and heart-shaped so you can really spread the love on your wedding day. 

Wedding Sparklers

Sparklers are a great, affordable idea for your evening guests (and the photos can look pretty awesome too!). Make yours even more personalised by printing your own Gift Tags or labels. Go for a flat card (such as a lightweight Business Card), or even use a Sticker or Label to decorate them with your wedding info. 

Hot Sauce Favours

Love spice? Why not create your own special blend of spicy sauce as wedding favours and package them up with a Label or Sticker? It’s a little kooky, a bit different, but most definitely unforgettable.

Baked to perfection

From cupcakes to biscuits, baked wedding favours are fun and can be budget-friendly if you do a little legwork. To keep costs low, we recommend buying or making your baked favours yourself and then adding an embellishment like a Sticker or Gift Tag to personalise.
