Luggage tags

There’s no much worse than getting to the luggage carousel at the airport and realising you can’t tell the difference between your suitcase and the dozens of other travel bags on there. Who would have thought that black would be such a popular colour? One useful and practical gift that your guests will love our travel-themed luggage tags. Not only will your guests be able to tell their bag apart, but it’s not going to gather dust in a desk drawer somewhere.

The best part about gifting luggage tags is that they’re already travel-orientated, so you can make them as straightforward or as themed as you want. You can go for traditional cards, something with a map on, or even something themed or shaped like a plane. The possibilities are endless!

To make them even more personalised write each person’s name on the tag with a sweet message. Or display them on a communal table together so each person can choose their design.

Get guests to DIY

There is something enjoyable about candy buffets that brings guests back to their childhood (and also provides a much-needed sugar injection for dancing the night away). And better still, if you give some cute little boxes, Chinese containers or jars, guests can choose which sweet treats they’d like and pack them as well. Because lollies and chocolates can come in all colours, this is an easy Bomboniere to tailor to your wedding theme, and you can guarantee it will be a hit with guests of all ages.

Another emerging trend is the Bomboniere buffet, where you display a range of gifts that your guests can choose from. But be careful if you venture down this path, as some items may be more popular than others and there is potential for a budget blow-out!

Fill your personalised kit with little features you’ve found useful on your travels. This could include items like a mini sewing kit, portable clothesline, safety pins, small comb, tissues or even an eye mask.


On the same theme as personalised stamps come notes. If you have a destination wedding, you can buy in bulk for the destination and place them out for each person to remember their time overseas. Or collect them as you travel yourself to give each person or table a different location.

These are another gift that can be beautifully personalised with a sweet note for each person. If you’re a couple that already lives, or is moving overseas, you can also write a special letter with your address, so your nearest and dearest know where to keep in touch!

Personalised stamps

Some people argue that marks are one of the worst hidden costs of planning a wedding. So why not just embrace them and make yourself some personalised stamps instead? There are plenty of designs to choose from, just make sure you’re getting a legitimate stamp rather than a fake!

You can add a personalised stamp to your table name cards for a cute gift for your guests. Plus, if you order too many, you can use them when sending out your thank you cards!

Globes can also be particularly useful the next time one of your loved ones forgets where a particular country is or wants to plan a holiday of their own.

Soup can Stubby Holders allows couples to thank guests with a gift they’re likely to use again.

This supplier offers personalised stubby holders designed to complement your wedding theme and colour scheme. Guests can use their stubby holders and coolers at the reception and take them home to cool their drinks for many years to come. Winning!

Local maps

Another great idea if you’re having a destination wedding is to grab a bunch of plans from the area you’re visiting and mark off different recommendations for your guests. When most guests travel some way for a wedding they usually make a holiday out of it as well, so make the most of their extra time overseas by giving them some personal recommendations. It could be where to find the best whisky bar for your best man, or where the closest museum is for your mother-in-law. Plus, most hotel lobbies will have maps of the area so it can also be a cost-effective way to give each of your guests a gift.

Maps can be used for local weddings as well. There’s something magical about being a tourist in your city. You can highlight your favourite restaurants or shopping centres for family and friends. Or even where you first met or celebrated your first anniversary as a cute map of your relationship.

Make a donation

If you really can’t decide on what to give your guests, you can present them with a warm and fuzzy feeling by donating on their behalf to a charity you support.

This will not only fill your guests with a great glow but will also allow you to donate an amount that is within your budget.

Anyone can do that. And with the help of suppliers that specialise in organza bags of all colours, boxes of any shape and size and ribbons that will match any wedding theme, it’s straightforward to save money and still be able to give the gift you have fallen in love with.

Two for the price of one

You can always get satisfaction out of combining beauty with functionality, and when you can use your Bomboniere as a reception place card, you will be onto a winner.

There are several ways you can do this, including having coasters with the guest’s names on them, photo frames with the guest’s name or photo inside, personalised candles, or even piccolos of champagne.

Your guests will be super happy with these customisable handcrafted bath, body and candle products. Made only from the finest ingredients, organic, plant-based and eco-friendly, these beauties could be the perfect option for your wedding day. Click here for a limited time discount!

Sharing is caring

When the majority of your guests are couples or families, it seems wasteful to be gifting a Bomboniere to each individual. What would one family do with four bottle openers?

Instead, you can consider giving one gift per couple or family, while single guests get one all to themselves.

Want to give something that brings joy to your friends and family? An eco-friendly living Bomboniere could be the right choice for you. Unique green gifts from mini potted succulents to organic seeds and teas. Click here for a special offer!

Bomboniere as a centrepiece

This is another idea to give your Bomboniere another purpose to keep costs down. Creating centrepieces out of gifts your guests can take home is also a great way to cut down on wastage.

You can use things like succulent terrariums, a jar of colourful lollipops tied with ribbons, bouquets made from mini-poses or a vase of individual flowers that guests can take home.

Groovy Glass is the perfect way to thank guests with a gift they will use again and again into the future.
