A little sugar, a little spice and something nice… Yup, we’re talking about the wedding invite favours here! Shaadi ka cards are becoming more and more elaborate, and so are the little gifts that you present with them. While we still appreciate the traditional box of ladoos, there’s a lot more you can experiment with. Here are 7 new and amazing ideas to make sure your invite totally stands out!
1. Sweetness in a jar
If your mom feels it’s essential to give something sweet with the card, switch up the mithais with jars of organic jams. It’s unique and your guests will absolutely love to receive this little basket of goodness. Put together a hamper of 3-4 different flavours, wrap it up with net and tie on a cute little ribbon.
Want to gift your guests something that they'll cherish for a long, long time? Potted plants are a thoughtful and offbeat gift choice. Choose an attractive planter - something like the colourful mini buckets that are so popular these days. You can even include a packet of seeds in the invite basket along with a note that reads - ‘Let Love Grow <3’. Sweet, right?!
A gift your guests are definitely going to use! Because everyone needs a set of funky coasters in their house. From the ones with funny one liners to others with quirky Indian art, there's a lot out there from you to choose from. Throw in a couple of chocolates along with your invite and you’re done!
Wouldn’t it be just awesome to receive an aroma oil and diffuser set with a wedding invite? Gift your guests an aroma set that’ll instantly make their house smell and feel fabulous! It’s not just different but something that’s loved by all. You could also include tealight holders, incense sticks or a set of candles for a fuller look.
Think of a basket with assorted goodness like exotic Indian spices, aam papad, tiny bottles of sherbat, homemade pickle, dried pan - the works, right? There is no end to all that you can include. Your wedding card designer will be able to help you with designing mini pouches or bottles for the same. We bet this goody basket will be a sure shot hit!
6. Let’s talk cupcakes!
Because everyone loves them! Replace the mithai ka dabba with an attractive box filled with macarons or cupcakes. Include a variety of flavours and you could even customize each one of your cupcakes with wedding related things - the wedding date, a ring, a palki, the couple's photo. There’s a lot you can get creative with, you know!
Pretty storage boxes are always welcome in any home. They make your room look good and are also extremely useful to store those little knick knacks. So, if you don’t want to go overboard, present your card with a gorgeous looking box. Don’t forget to fill it up with a few chocolates and a little heartfelt note, perhaps.
