When organising and planning your wedding it can be all too easy to forget about the little people who will be attending. Whilst browsing through appropriate and quirky wedding favours, you probably won’t be choosing the favours with children in mind. And with choices such as dark chocolate, jewellery, alcohol and bath salts it might be an idea to buy separate wedding favours for children.
But why do children need their own little gifts? There are plenty of reasons to consider getting children’s wedding favours:
- Children like to feel included in the whole day.
- If you include children and show them just as much attention then they are more likely to be well-behaved.
- Little wedding gifts for children keep fidgety hands busy and gives them something to concentrate on during the wedding speeches.
- Parents will also be thrilled at your thoughtful gesture for their children.
There are plenty of cheap yet unique wedding favour ideas for children and here is an assortment of the best we could find.
This fantastic wedding jollybox is crammed full of creative fun! There is a booklet packed with wedding themed game ideas, a puzzle activity book, illustrated flash cards and a folded card for them to design and decorate. Children will love this Wedding Activity Set and there’s enough in there to keep them happy all through the wedding breakfast!
Kids love dressing up so why not indulge them with Daft Disguises? One box has 16 different disguises including fake moustaches, eye patches, bow ties, glasses etc. You could get a box for each child or place one disguise at their place and see if the other guests can work out who they are! A great idea to keep both kids and guests alike amused!
Save some money on starters for kids at the wedding breakfast and treat them instead to Children’s Sweets Favour Bags! Lots of their favourite sweets are popped into little clear cellophane bags and then topped off with pretty pink or blue ribbons. Just watch out that the adult guests don’t start pinching them as these little sweeties are quite irresistible!
For some sweet treats that are almost too good to eat then look no further than Personalised Edible Fairy Wands! These organic cookies are handmade in Lancashire and can be personalised with colours to match your wedding table theme and decorated with the name of each child. You could even use them as edible wedding place names! Expect huge squeals of delight as each child discovers his or her edible wand!
Children can be a noisy bunch at times, especially when they are excited but just listen as the noise abruptly stops once the lollies are handed round! These Candy Lollies Favour Bags come in all natural and slightly unusual flavours such as strawberry caramel, chocolate orange and bakewell tart! Extremely scrumptious lollies that are best handed out when the speeches are being made!
It can be hard to cater for all ages, for instance an activity bag for 3-5yr olds isn’t going to go down too well with an 8 year old. But with Busy Bags – kid’s Activity Bags you can mix and match your party bags to suit the different ages. Choices range from deluxe wedding bags which are full of puzzles, stickers, creative fun and colours or individual party bags based on the gender and age of the child. Optional treats include bubbles and sweets! There are enough activities to keep even the most restless of children happily occupied for a few hours.
Now I find these plastic favour boxes absolutely adorable and extremely tasty too! Choose from either thisPlastic Pig Children’s Wedding Favour or other shapes such as teddy bears, dinosaurs, cars and cats. Each plastic animal is filled with an assortment of sweeties and once the kids have filled themselves up they can take the animal home to use as a little storage tub!
These All About Me Kid’s Activity Favour Bags are superbly presented in gorgeous wrapping and ribbons to make every child feel special. This little diary is a brilliant idea as she can scribble down all her memories of your big day! There are many other activity wedding favour bags to choose from so each child can have something different that is unique to their own likes and personalities. There will be some truly grateful parents when these kids wedding favours are unwrapped!
Why not give children their own personal memento of your wedding? This cute little Teddy Key King Favour comes as a decoration on either a blue or pink box that is superbly wrapped and filled with sweets! It’s a wonderful little keepsake that can also be used to keep a slice of wedding cake in afterwards!
Everyone loves Love Hearts! They are the retro sweets that have never gone out of fashion and so many adults will be looking on in envy as children reveal their Love Hearts Sweet Favour and Mug complete with 12 mini rolls of Love Hearts. It’s a beautifully appropriate wedding favour for kids and they won’t want to wait to fill up their mugs with juice!
So make your special day both memorable and enjoyable not just for adults but for children too by treating them with some of these yummy, adorable and fun wedding favours. After all children are under a lot of pressure at a wedding to be on their best behaviour so it’s only right that their angelic behaviour is rewarded and they have an extra incentive to be quiet during the speeches and not say in a very loud voice “I’M BORED!” For there is nothing boring about these gifts and treats!
