Wedding Favors

Life’s a Party! Mix it Up with Beverage Wedding Favors

Jun 23, 2011

This week we’re offering 20% off all of our personalized drink mixes – this includes coffee packs, cocktail mixes, hot chocolate, cappuccino, lemonade, tea bags, tea tins, tea disks, and apple cider mixes.  So whether you’re looking to warm up your winter wedding with hot cocoa or whip up some margaritas at your backyard BBQ, beverage wedding favors are perfect for all occasions.  And we’ve got some great ideas to make them even more unique then their original design options and free personalization.

Coffee Wedding Favors – All of our coffee packs are filled with a fine blend of coffee grinds, but you can make them even more appealing by pairing them with a coffee scoop, or even displaying them in personalized coffee mugs.  It’ll be the perfect blend of favors at your wedding.

Cocktail Mixes – A fine choice for bridal showers and bachelorette parties, these will go great with a handy martini shaker, or even a cocktail themed favor, such as a girly manicure kit or clever luggage tag.  Available in both cosmopolitan and margarita!

Personalized Tea Favors – I personally think a tea party is an adorable theme for a bridal shower, and we have a bunch of tea themed favors that would go great with a personalized tea bag, tin, or disk.  Your personalized tea may brew a fine cup, but a teapot kitchen timer will always be there to remind your guests of your special day.  If you’re giving out loose tea, a tea infuser will make it the perfect pair.  You may even want to throw a jar of personalized honey in a matching design.  Yum!

Using the coupon code Drink20 at checkout will save you 20% off personalized beverage favors.  Or you can use Drink10 for 10% off anything on our site.  Hurry and save while you can – sale ends Saturday, June 25th.

The Royal Wedding…Favors!

Apr 29, 2011

So I know a ton of you watched the Royal Wedding live on TV this morning. Although I didn’t wake up at 4 AM to watch it, I did catch a few bits and pieces of it throughout the day. What did you guys think of Kate’s dress? Did anyone see the wedding cake? Or better yet, the menu? What a feast! Being a Little Things employee, I can’t help but wonder what wedding favors they featured! After a little bit of research, the rumor is that they had originally planned on giving their guests limited-edition scarves made of fine wool that were custom designed by a extremely posh apparel company in India. Little Things doesn’t offer these chic and expensive scarves, so here’s what I think William & Kate (now the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge) would use if they bought their wedding favors from us.

1. Crown Bottle Stoppers with Crystals (in styles King or Queen) – I love these bottle stoppers, mostly because they’re great quality and really stylish. These stoppers would add sparkle to any “castle!”

2. Fairytale Design Trinket Box – These trinket boxes may be low in cost, but they’re fit for royalty! Trinket boxes have been some of our most popular wedding favors in the past season, and this intricate crown style is definitely one of the finest.

3. Crown Design Picture Frame – Kate & William’s guests would have no problem finding their seat with these elegant place card frames. And they’re perfect for holding pictures afterwards.

4. Antique Silver Crown Toasting Flutes & Server Set – They can make a toast and slice their cake in a regal style.

5. Finally, (although I’m sure Kate’s is MUCH nicer), we offer a ton of bridal tiaras – but these are great alternatives for brides who can’t afford one as lavish as the Duchess’.

We welcome Marko, the leader of our Search Engine Marketing department, back to the states today! Marko resides in Helsinki, Finland but has once again decided to come visit his fellow employees here in America.

PS – Don’t forget to take 10% off your order using the coupon code Cake10 upon checkout – expires tomorrow! And if your order totals $249 before the discount, you can select a free cake topper! See site for details.

Enjoy your weekend, and the nice weather! <3 Kelsey

Check Out Our Best Selling Wedding Favors!

Mar 29, 2011

When shopping on our website, you’re able to not only keyword search, but browse our wedding favors using an easy-to-navigate “Shop Favor By…” menu.  Looking for pre-wedding party favors, like stuff for your engagement party?  We’ve got a section for that.  Want something to incorporate into your purple or Damask design theme?  We’ve got a section for that too.  We even make it easy to shop for traditional Indian favors by heritage, or favors for your sandy seaside beach bash.  But if you’re just looking to check out all of the great favors we have in store for you, you can simply click on the first option available in our entire menu:  wedding favors.  You’ll then have the option to shop by category – perhaps you’re looking for a bookmark, something eco-friendly, something new, or something popular.  Our best selling wedding favors section includes 6 full pages of popular wedding favors – that’s 96 products that are hot sellers and popular among brides that shop with us.  Aren’t you interested to see what’s in store?

The great thing about shopping our best sellers section is that nothing is specific – you can be looking for a favor for your winter wonderland wedding, or something to match your fleur de lis theme.  You can rest assured that when checking out these products, you’re getting something that’s the best of the best and most of your guests will love and appreciate.  Here are just some of my favorite wedding favors that can also be found in our best sellers section.

Fleur de Lis Pewter Finish Bottle Opener – This has to be one of my favorite wedding favors.  For a couple of reasons:  one, I absolutely adore fleur de lis wedding favors.  Two, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous.  And three, it’s so practical – all of your guests, both men and women, can use this.

Lovebirds Design Photo Coasters – The second these coasters came out, which was not too long ago, they were an instant hit.  At an unbelievably low price, this favor features a sweet design and simple, elegant packaging.

Set of 12 Personalized Glass Favor Jars – I’m not a fan of DIY favors, especially candy boxes and jars, but these miniature mason jars are too cute to resist.  Fill them up with candy or anything you can imagine – I’d fill mine with loose tea!  I also love the free personalization and all the options you have to choose from.

Beautifully Beaded Place Card & Photo Frame – Table assignments is extremely important at your wedding reception.  After all, you don’t want your guests to feel uncomfortable if they don’t know other guests at your event.  These place card frames have been a best seller for a while now, and it’s no question as to why – they’re simple, elegant and though their price is low, they’re far from cheap!

Personalized Theme Playing Cards – If you’re like me, you might want to receive a favor you can actually use when going to a wedding, so use the same mindset when choosing your wedding favors:  can your guests use this?  These playing cards are a lot of fun.  Not only are they practical, but include free personalization – that’s 27 designs and colors to mix & match.’

Be sure to check out all of the best favors we have to offer, and if you decide to order them, save 20% by using the coupon code Best20 upon checkout.  Ordering favors, but not a best seller?  Not to worry – save 10% by using Best10 instead.  Remember – coupons cannot be combined.  Offer ends at 11:59PM on Saturday April 2, 2011, Eastern Standard Time.  Have fun shopping!

Spring Is In The Air!

Mar 15, 2011

May flowers are not the only thing April showers bring – they bring lots of weddings too!  I can’t wait to say that “spring has sprung” – I’m sick of the cold, and I know brides who are looking forward to their warmer-weather weddings are too!  From April all the way through early June, there’s a ton of spring weddings taking place.  If you’re attending a wedding during this time, you’re sure to see a lot of spring themed wedding favors around!  The great thing about spring favors are the colors:  they range from light pastels, to bright shades of pinks, purples, greens, and yellows.  Flowers, birds, perfect pairs, butterflies and even ladybugs are just some of the themes that grace our favors.  Below you’ll find a bunch of what I think are our cutest spring and garden wedding favors and accessories!

1.  Showered with Love Couple Figurine Wedding Cake Top – This sweet wedding cake topper is brand new and perfect for any romantic couple whose wedding is in the spring!  This darling couple is smooching beneath an umbrella – and it’s complete with the bride wearing her galoshes under her gown.

2.  Beautiful Butterfly Cake Topper / Decor Sets (4 Colors) – The name of this cake topper certainly fits perfectly, because it really is beautiful!  This realistic cake topper is one of a kind and available in four of spring’s most popular colors.  Your guests will be in awe!

3.  Miniature Metal Garden Watering Can Wedding Favors (Set of 12) – You an add a lot of charm to these rustic wedding favors with personalized ribbon or labels.  Fill them up with flowers, seeds, gardening tools or candy and “shower” your guests with love!

4.  “Love Birds in the Window” Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shakers – This best-selling favor is suitable for any spring wedding with its light, spring-y packaging.  Your guests won’t be able to help smiling at this adorable favor and will always remember your special day when they reach for the salt & pepper.

5.  “Daisy Delight” Gerbera Daisy Favor Box (Set of 24) – These bold and bright favor boxes are perfect for holding all your delicious and delectable treats!  Available in hot pink or tangerine orange, the boxes are also personalized with matching personalized stickers for a really unique giveaway.

6.  Mini Blown Glass Heart Vase (Set of 4) – I have an obsession with bud vases, and these ones make the perfect addition to any reception table!  Add a single daisy or wildflower to the vase and voila – instant charm!  The personalized clings add a whimsical touch and are available in a wide variety of colors to match your theme.

7.  “Fluttering Heart” Butterfly Bottle Stopper – Wine stoppers are always a popular favor, and this butterfly stopper puts a sweet twist on a classic.  But hurry – the low-cost clearance pricing hints that it may be discontinued soon.

8.  “Garden Park” Black Mini Lantern – I think these mini lanterns would be extra adorable at an outdoor reception on a cool spring evening.  They’ll absolutely illuminate your table settings and make a great addition to any of your guests’ decks or patios.

9.  “Love Blossoms” Personalized Favor Card (Set of 12) – An oldie but a goodie!  We’ve had these plantable seed cards for quite some time, and I think they’re adorable if you double them as your place cards.  Personalization is free!

10.  Modern Decorative Birdcage – One of our newest gift card holders, and I love the vintage style.  This bird cage arrives with a free personalized streamer in your color of choice.  And you can add the wishing cards too!

Spring is in the air!  And for this week, you can get free shipping on your order of $99 or more!

Off With the Old, & On With the New!

Jan 7, 2011

I could kick myself for not writing a blog to wrap up 2010, but unfortunately the office staff was graced with a stomach virus right before the holiday.  I myself was out on New Year’s Eve and never got the chance to blog.  So, I’d like to start off by wishing everyone a Happy New Year!  (I know, I’m definitely more than a little late.)  A new year means a new wedding season, which also means new wedding favors.  Brides who love to stay up to date are beginning to look for the newest, hottest and trendiest favors to use at their weddings.  The Little Things Staff has been plugging away trying to offer all you anxious brides more favors, and if you check out our new arrivals you’ll see some of the new stuff on the market.  But I’d like to take the time to list what I thought were the hottest and most popular wedding favors of 2010, and give a little preview of what I think will be hot sellers in 2011 too!

Popular Wedding Favors for 2010

1.  The Fleur de Lis Motif & Damask Designs – Sales for these prints skyrocketed this past wedding season, and it’s no wonder as to why.  All the girls here at Little Things adore both of the Parisian-inspired designs:  we love the romantic vibe, the classy style and the simplicity of all these wedding favors.  In fact, we even give our display window at our showroom in Sayreville, NJ a Paris theme around March.  I think the popularity of these prints will continue through 2011!

2.  DIY Favor Boxes – They’re great for lower budgets and saving a couple bucks, but I personally hate paper favor boxes and hope these favors are on their way out.  I feel the same way about mint tins.  Read # 2 on my 2011 list for my favorite candy alternative.

3.  Wine Bottle Stoppers – I can’t say I don’t like these, because I love wine stoppers and have (and still) recommended them to many brides that come into our shop.  I love that they’re practical, perfect for both men and women, and available for every single budget out there.  I don’t necessarily think that these are on their way out, but with all the new practical favors on the market (see below!), I definitely think brides will be re-considering.

4.  Wine Charms – I like wine charms to put on your guests’ wine glasses, but I definitely wouldn’t hand them out as a favor.  I don’t think they’re something that would be used everyday.  I certainly wouldn’t use them!

5.  Place Card Frames – I don’t think place card frames are on their way out, I just think that place card holders are going to become popular again!  You will too once you check out some of the unique place card holders we now offer (see below!).

Popular Wedding Favors for 2011

1.  Updated Favor Jars – It seems that the ever-popular and best selling favor jar is being pushed to the side with all of the newly designed ones that are now available.  With little latched “message in a bottle” like jars, cylindrical jars with cork tops, mason jars and even heart-shaped jars, brides now have a lot more options.

2.  Keepsake Boxes / Candy -  Rather than a flimsy, cheap paper favor box, why not give your guests something they can actually use?  We offer teeny mirrored boxes, intricate jewel footed wooden boxes and other trinket boxes that can easily hold a fine delicacy, like truffles.  They can use the box to hold small items, like jewelry after your wedding.  I also love the idea of displaying a single truffle on these clear acrylic phantom chairs.
3.  Practical and Unique Wedding Favors – I was ooh-ing and aww-ing at some of the adorable and practical stuff that we now offer.  Sugar tongs, recipe coasters, bottle openers and edible stuff like drink mixes and honey are so cute!  If I went to a wedding, I’d like to receive something I can actually use…or eat.

4.  Place Card Holders – Real coral, miniature wedding rings, chess pieces and even vintage typewriters (so cute – these are shown in the picture).  I wouldn’t give the place card holder as a favor, but for seating?  Absolutely darling!

5.  Personalization, Personalization, Personalization! – Personalized items have always been popular, as well as personalized tags attached to your wedding favors.  It looks like more stuff is able to be personalized this wedding season, so I’m expecting a lot of happy brides!  Personalized wedding fans, candles, miniature favor pails and more hot chocolate and coffee (with so much personalization – more than ever!) are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

Looking forward to the new year with all of you!  PS – Don’t forget to check out our new wedding accessories too.  We have so much new stuff!  <3 Kelsey

Cookie Wedding Favor Ideas

Dec 20, 2010

This past weekend, Team Little Things took a day to spend quality time together (off the clock) and get into the Christmas spirit. We all met at Erica’s house for her first annual Holiday Cookie Party! While listening to classic Christmas tunes and sipping on hot cocoa, we rolled, cut, baked and decorated away – for hours! Some of our delicious morsels included white chocolate covered mint chocolate cookies that were sprinkled with crushed candy cane, gingerbread men, iced sugar cookies, almond nut bars, and chocolate chip shortbread cookies that were supposed to be drizzled with chocolate…but we got lazy. Anyway, while playing Betty Crocker I was inspired for a blog idea: cookie wedding favors! Why not bake your own cookies for your guests to take home and enjoy? Especially if your wedding is around Christmas…after all, during the holiday season almost everyone is baking! But some of us may not be as domestic as others, so if you’re scared you’ll burn the house down, here are some other great ideas to stick with a cookie favor theme.

1. If you can’t bake your own cookies, why not urge your guests to instead?  Our Personalized Sugar Cookie Mixes are available in a classic wedding theme, winter and fall designs.  This adorable favor makes approximately 8 delicious sugar cookies. It’s also available with an optional heart handle mini whisk. So cute!

2. Cookie cutters have always been a popular and practical favor. Many couples want to give their guests something they know won’t go to waste, and a cookie cutter certainly won’t. Even though it may not be used every single day, it will come in handy when it’s time for baking. Our cookie cutters are availalbe in fun shapes such as the ever popular heart, the word “LOVE,” autumn leaves, fun beach themes, and butterflies too.

3. Not everyone has a sweet tooth, but you can stay in the baking theme with kitchen wedding favors. A measuring spoon favor, a whisk, or perhaps a kitchen timer are some of our most popular and useful kitchen favors.  Like cookie cutters, these favors are practical, but they can be used in a kitchen every day.

4. If you don’t have the skills or the time to bake cookies for your wedding, fear not – we offer cookie wedding favors to give to your guests. These yummy treats are baked and customized for each and every order, guaranteeing freshness from the moment they arrive. From chocolate dipped oreos and fortune cookies to personalized Biscotti and photo cookies, the limits are endless! Guests will be able to appreciate your good taste in design and flavor.

Happy baking, and enjoy your week! Just one week until Christmas…have you finished your shopping yet?

<3 All my love – Kelsey

Warm Wedding Favors for the Cold Days Ahead

Oct 22, 2010

It’s starting to get chilly here in New Jersey, and the girls and I are doing our best to try and stay warm.  No longer is the air conditioning or the window open in our office.  We’re bringing out our furry boots, scarves and sweaters, and keeping nice and toasty with coffee and hot chocolate.  Last month, brides began buying their wedding favors for their winter weddings.  Beverage wedding favors consist of some of our most popular favors, and for winter we have hot drinks that are the perfect remedy for the cold weather.

One of the obsessions among all Little Things employees is coffee.  Whether it’s a strong blend, hazelnut or french vanilla, we cannot resist!  A couple of us also favor hot chocolate.  We offer delicious personalized hot drink mixes such as coffee (which we have all sampled here – and it is delicious!), cappuccino, hot cocoa and tea (all are offered with the same designs).  Additionally, we offer loose tea in tins, and round tea bags in discs with different personalization options.  Finally, and our newest addition, is our hot apple cider mix.  The packets are available with an optional whisk, and aren’t just available with wedding designs–you can choose specific labels for your fall, winter or Las Vegas themed wedding too.  We also offer other hot chocolate and cappuccino in the same apple cider designs as well.

In addition to all the yummy drinks, we have similar favors that you may want to coordinate with the drink mixes:

Coffee - Coffee scoops, coasters & mugs.

Cappuccino - Coasters & candles.

Hot Cocoa – Brown hot chocolate mugs.

Tea - Tea infusers, teapot timers, & favor boxes/place card holders.

Be sure to check out all of our beverage wedding favors to browse through all of the favors mentioned above and much more.  And if you’re looking for wedding favors for the upcoming seasons, we also have fall / autumn wedding favors and winter wedding favors.  Some of the stuff is really unique, like personalized silk fall leaf petals, best selling leaf bottle stoppers, and pumpkin design brownies for the current season.  There’s also personalized snow globes, snowflake design Rice Krispies, and heart shaped hand warmers for the even colder months that are soon to come.

Happy shopping!  Have a great weekend! <3 Kelsey

Fall in Love, or Fall in Chocolate?

Oct 19, 2010

In our Little Things office, we absolutely adore chocolate.  I myself am a self-diagnosed chocoholic (I definitely have 1+ chocolate fixes per day), and the rest of the girls love it just as much as I do.  In fact, I’m actually eating a chocolate brownie as I write this blog!  Whenever Erica visits Finland, she brings back Fazer chocolate, which we’re all obsessed with.  Other favorites of ours include molten chocolate cake, and chocolate fondue.  Plus, there’s always hot chocolate by the coffee maker.  Chocolate is one of the most popular foods in the world.  That’s why chocolate wedding favors are some of our best selling favors!

Instead of worrying about whether or not your guests will save the candle wedding favor, put a photo in the place card holder, or use the bottle stopper you gave, give them something you know won’t go to waste.  That’s why edible favors are such a great idea.  Who doesn’t love to eat?  Sure there’s candy, but majority of people will probably prefer a chocolate dipped fudge brownie to a tin of mints.  Below you’ll find some of the great chocolate wedding favors Little Things has to offer:

1.  Brownie Wedding Favors – These are definitely one of our most popular wedding favors.  These delectable brownies are a soft, chewy fudge dipped in a creamy chocolate, and designed to coordinate with your wedding.  With designs such as filigree scrolls, flowers, monograms, and even brides & grooms, you’re bound to find something that you like.  But no matter what design you choose, the brownies are going to taste delicious no matter what!

2.  Chocolate Dipped Rice Krispies – These are just as delicious as the brownies, though a little bit pricier.  But the designs are so intricate and beautiful, you may not be able to resist.  With Rice Krispies cut and decorated like wedding gowns, tiered cakes, flowers, lobsters & lighthouses, snowflakes & snowmen, and even sushi…well, they’re definitely one of a kind.

3.  Personalized Hershey Chocolate Candy Bars & Wrappers – Choose from standard Hershey Bars (1.55 oz. of creamy milk chocolate), Hershey’s miniatures (in a variety of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, Krackel & Mr. Goodbar) and Hershey’s Kisses.  All are offered with the same classic wedding designs, some exclusive designs–that can only be found here at Little Things!–and free personalization.  We also have holiday, birthday, quinceanera, sweet sixteen, and designs for religious events as well.  And for lower budgets & DIY favors, we also sell just the Hershey bar and miniatures wrappers.

4.  Gourmet Cookies – From Oreos, fortune cookies, graham crackers, Nutter Butters and biscotti, each of these yummy cookies are dipped in chocolate and designed beautifully.  From classic bride & groom designs, monograms, flowers, pumpkins, and even photo cookies, these delicious treats are sure to have your guests’ mouths watering.

5.  Personalized Hot Cocoa – Many of these are available printed in the same designs as the Personalized Hershey’s Chocolate mentioned above.  But we also offer a couple of other hot cocoa packets with different designs and packaging – some are even available with an optional whisk!  We also have adorable hot chocolate mugs that you can give to your guests along with the hot cocoa.  It makes a great winter wedding favor!

Which would you prefer:  falling in love, or falling in chocolate?  Well, when you use chocolate wedding favors at your wedding, you get the best of both worlds.

Enjoy your week, everyone!  <3 Kelsey

Wedding Favors for Every Culture

Oct 15, 2010

Here at Little Things, we believe in diversity. I’m Irish & Italian, Kristi is Polish & German, Alecia is a self-proclaimed “mutt”  (with German, Italian, Irish & English in her blood), Erica is German & Russian, Ben is Puerto Rican & African American, and Jessica is Colombian & Dominican. We’re all about embracing other cultures: Alecia’s boyfriend is Egyptian, and she’s having a great time feeling out new customs. There’s a lot of new food, music and people she’s recently filled her life with. Erica’s heart lies in Finland, where she’s been visiting back and forth for the past three years. Not only do our personal lives reflect our interest in other cultures, but the wedding favors we sell do too.

Little Things Favors is designed for easy navigation and simple searching for favors. This is by color, price, season and most popularly: by theme. Lately we’ve been talking about and beginning to expand our selection of ethnic wedding favors. If you’re ever visiting our website, you’ll see we have sections dedicated to specific favors such as Irish, Asian, Indian – even French wedding favors (see our Paris section). Here’s a sneak peek at what each section has in store for you:

Irish - There’s lots of green, and shamrocks for the luck of the Irish! We have old time Irish blessing poems printed on plantable seed cards or sold separately with pewter pocket clovers to ensure good luck. Instead of silk rose petals, why not go with personalized silk shamrock rose petals? There’s even Irish wedding collections.

Asian - Cherry blossom or double happiness themed favors, as well as chopsticks, fortune cookies, fans and eco-friendly favors made of bamboo. We offer a beautiful cherry blossom wedding collection, and Asian inspired cake toppers as well.

Indian - The newest addition to our wedding favors by theme, and it’s full of beautiful colors such as deep reds and pretty gold hues. Our “Lucky Elephant” favors are best selling, and we love the paisley designs on some of our favors. We also have gorgeous mirrored golden lac boxes intricately detailed with beads. Don’t forget to check out our Indian cake toppers too!

French - Paris themed weddings are extremely popular, but if you’re just trying to show off your roots there are great favors here for you. In addition to our damask and fleur de lis themed favors, we have the cutest place card holders modeled after the Eiffel tower (a best seller!). There’s also mint tins, bookmarks, keychains and more designed after the same beautiful landmark.

Hope you decide to check out more of our wedding favors by theme. Have a great weekend! <3 Kelsey
