New Orleans Specialties
2. Roman Candy
3. Mini Hot Sauce Bottle (Crystal, Slap Ya Mama, Louisiana)
4. Go Cups
This one is especially good if you are second lining. Plastic cups are inexpensive to personalize and useful beyond wedding day! Plus in NOLA, you can take them with you, filled to the brim with your fav cocktail.
5. Mardi Gras Beads
Buy them plain, or have them personalized. This one is especially fun around Mardi Gras, or anytime for out-of-town guests.
6. Second Line Hankies
7. Pat O Brien’s Hurricane Mix
8. Hubig’s Pies
These have been a New Orleans tradition for almost 100 years.
9. Café Du Monde Beignets or Beignet Mix
10. French Market Coffee & Chicory
Choose your favorite coffee, make it local if possible. Purchase it in K-Cup Pods and add your own label.
11. Hand Sanitizer
Choose something edible and delicious, and your favor won’t go to waste! Part dessert, part gift!
15. Local Honey
16. Cake Pops
19. Dog Treats
Treat your guests with a treat from your pup to theirs.
Think about items that your guests might enjoy having in their homes after your wedding. Usable items are best, rather than selecting permanent items that are unlikely to suit all of your guests’ homes.
21. Wine Stoppers
22. Bottle Openers
Winter, spring, summer and fall can inspire all sorts of gifts for your guests. Here are a few of our favs.
26. A Fan
27. Personalized Sunglasses
28. Travel Sunscreen
29. Flower Seeds
30. Sun Hats
31. Hand Warmers
34. Seasonally Flavored Foods
35. A Cozy Blanket
This list should get your creative juices flowing. But if you just can’t find a favor that feels like a genuine gift from you and your fiancé, then it’s ok to skip this altogether. A thank you note after the wedding is sentiment enough to show your guests your appreciation.
