As this is the most special day for the bride and the bridegroom, they celebrate it with the people they love the most, i.e. their family and friends. To ensure that their big day remains memorable for the guests forever, they give the guests favors. However, many couples do not think of giving different favors to the children attending the ceremony. Usually, people give the same thing to the kids as they give to their parents. But, the kids may not like such favors. For instance, it would mean nothing to a five year boy if he is given an executive diary. Hence, it would be a great if you think of something that would make the kids happy and enjoy your celebration.

You can give them tote bags filled with activity and coloring books that would keep them busy. You can pack the bag with other gifts like crayons, stickers, a bottle of bubbles, building sets, key chains, etc.

You can opt for chocolate favors, where you could fill a basket full of chocolates, cookies, pastries, marshmallows, nuts, muffins, candies, and little thank you card or a key chain that says thank you with your names and the date.
  • You can also plan for favor boxes where you can give the kids boxes containing different types of goodies. The things that you fill in these boxes could be based on the gender of the child. For instance, you can have boxes filled with dolls, little animals, necklaces and bracelets made of beads, etc. for girls, and you can have little cars, action figures, whistles, yo-yos, etc. for boys. You can also include picture books, comic books, and video games in these boxes.
  • Another cool option would be stuffed toys of different animals, cartoon characters, etc. In this case, there are a variety of options available in the market for you to select from. Giving them personalized mugs which has a handle of some animal would also be lovely. You can also personalize the mug by writing each child's name on it and also your names and wedding date.
  • Soap baskets are also great. You can put in bubble bath solution and soaps of different shapes and colors. Stuffing the basket with shampoo bottles, oils, etc., would also be loved by little kids.
When you are wrapping the things, you could put the name of the child on it. This would avoid confusion if you have bought favors according to their age and interests. If your favors consist of some activities, it would be better if you give it to them as soon as they arrive at the venue. By doing this, you can ensure that the kids have a nice time, while their parents and the rest of the guests enjoy the festivities.
