Indeed there are.

You don't have to go with gifts that you feel those who are celebrating your special day with, might find boring. You can of course do something different and go with personalised gifts, though it is always best if when they see the gift they think of those who they celebrated.

While it might sound like self promotion, gifts such as small jars of preserves are always a fun idea, as they will bear the name and date of your special day. Other alternatives include glassware, toys, or even wordcrafts.

Do consider your very own customised wedding fragrance that can be made into 5ml perfume samples as bonboniere. Unique and fashionable. You're looking at $10 a favour, and depending on how many guests your wedding seats, you may qualify for wholesale prices (100+ guests) which cuts the price in half!

We suggest edible bomboniere and ideally something that would suit everyone (all ages).  Our most popular and affordable gift is our personalised mini honey jars. If you require less than 100, they are just $4.00 each including the personalised label of your choice (which we apply on the jar for you).  We source the honey jars from a reputable honey supplier in Australia.  The round mini jars are filled with 42g of Australian Yellow Box honey (delicious).  The quality and presentation of the honey is very good as well.  For quantities of 100 or more we offer discounts.  We deliver the honey jars to Australia-wide (except WA as unable to send honey due to quarantine laws - we can suggest other options for WA brides).  We package the honey jars extremely well.  Please view our page under the Bomboniere category for picture examples. We also sell empty small glass jars (so you can fill with your own lollies to save cost), personalised labels, personalised tags, hessian gift bags, coloured gift bags, confectionery and more!

Best of luck with your decision!

There are endless ideas for your wedding favours. Perhaps you're following a sedding day theme or colour scheme or adore edible treats tucked into small contemporary boxes or bags. Go natural with seeds, plants, jams or perhaps honey. If your a practical bride, you may like keyrings, bottle openers, glasses or even better, have place card holders at each guests table setting. They look fabulous on the night and are oh so useful to hold photos or notes for years to come.
