Do you have your wedding favors boxes or jars all picked out but need ideas for filling them? Here are some fun filler ideas for your wedding favor boxes or jars that your guests are sure to love.
Okay, so you’ve picked out your wedding favor boxes or jars. The hard part is over. But now you have to find the perfect filler idea to really top things off. The content of your boxes or jars is just as important as the way the boxes or jars look on the outside. It’s a bummer for your guests to receive something that looks cute on the outside but is filled with useless contents on the inside. Granted, you won’t be able to please everyone, but it’s worth choosing a favor filler idea that your guests will enjoy and one that will complement the jar or box it’s encased in.
Here are some fun filler ideas for your wedding favor boxes or jars:
Gardening mixes—Want to give everyone a thoughtful, cozy gift that can help them improve their garden and give back to the planet? Plantable wedding favors have become increasingly popular in recent years, with biodegradable packaging and easy-to-plant instructions. Try placing some of these packets inside your boxes or jars, or create your own seed mixes and fill the jars with them. Don’t forget to attach little tags that describe the contents and have a little thank you message included. This is also a great choice if you are looking for eco-friendly wedding favors.
Recipe mixes—This is another great way to give something homey and thoughtful, and if you’re a good cook or have a knack for baking gourmet doggy treats, it’s an ideal option. Try stuffing your wedding favor boxes or jars with whatever dry ingredients or spices are needed to cook a mouthwatering casserole, or use a special recipe that has been passed down through the family over the years. Pasta mixes are especially fun and you can include a card with the mix that describes different ways to cook it or its cultural origins.
Other ideas—You can also opt for other edible treats for your wedding favors, such as classic chocolates, or try potpourri mixes or miniature scented oils. These are just a few fun filler ideas to consider for your wedding favor boxes or jars.
