Coffee Wedding Favors
I absolutely love coffee and if you’re like me, you can skip along to the next section. For those who need a little convincing, here are a few great reasons to go with coffee-inspired wedding favors:
Why Gift Coffee Wedding Favors?
- Coffee is beloved by many: Over two-thirds of Americans drink coffee every single day. On average they drink 3.1 cups per day, and as a nation Americans consume about 146 billion cups of coffee per year!
- More than just a drink: From our morning routines to first date meet-ups to catch-ups with friends on the weekend – coffee has become a part of our daily lives and deserves to be celebrated.
- Smells amazing: Even amongst those that don’t like the taste, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t enjoy the smell of coffee. If you want to appeal to your guests’ sense of scent, #6 is a great option!
- Coffee keeps the party going: If you want your wedding dance to continue into the wee hours of the night, there’s nothing like a boost of caffeine to help your guests find their second wind!
Coffee Favor Considerations
While I could list plenty more reasons that coffee makes a great wedding favor, I also want to touch on a few things you might want to take into account.
First, if you are inviting kids to your wedding reception, consider providing a kid-friendly favor such as a pouch of hot chocolate or cappucino-flavored fudge.
There’s a good chance a few of your guests will be non-coffee drinkers. If you want to keep them happy, consider some of my suggestions below, including sweet treats infused with a hint of coffee, and coffee-scented soap. Or you can opt to provide your guests with a selection of hot drink mixes to take home with them, including premium coffees, special teas, hot chocolate, and apple ciders. That way, you can be sure they’ll choose something they love.
1. Retro Airmail Coffee Favors
Planning a destination wedding or simply love travelling? These retro-style airmail coffee favors are a great way to tie-in two passions.
Each favor contains 2 ounces of fresh roasted coffee (ground or bean), and I love that there’s a fair trade, organic option. You’ll also get to customize the package with your initials and choose a ‘thank-you’ in one of three languages.
2. Coffee Cup Set with Personalized Label
by Labels R Us
These cup sets are great for individual wedding favors, or if you decide to go for a coffee bar instead. Each set includes a compostable cup and lid, a cardboard coffee sleeve, and a personalized label.
Just add a packet of your favorite grind to the cup and your guests are prepared for the next time they need a jolt of energy. Alternatively, set up a hot drinks bar to keep your guests caffenaited and dancing into the wee hours of the night. Add hot chocolate and tea options for those non coffee lovers.
3. Personalized Coffee Mug
Practical and pretty, this floral-inspired mug is a great way to ensure all your guests enjoy their wedding favor, no matter their preferred hot beverage. Provide a basket filled with various coffee, tea, and hot chocolate options and they’ll be set for a lovely morning-after cuppa.

5. Cappuccino Cheesecake Fudge
Let’s face it, not everyone loves coffee. Most people are happy, however, to savor a sweet treat that’s coffee flavored. This cappuccino cheesecake fudge is a great way to please both coffee lovers and sweet tooths. Order it by the pound, portion it as you see fit, then dress each one up in pretty packaging that matches your wedding style.
6. Coffee-Scented Soap Wedding Favors
If you’re searching for a wedding favor that’s equal parts luxurious and practical, look no further. After all, what could be more sublime then lathering your skin with the delicate scents of coffee?
The aroma of coffee is arguably as delighful as the taste of coffee, and the genius that first decided to make coffee-scented soap deserves big props. Even better, this company is committed to doing good – for every soap favor they sell, they give a bar to the Eco Soap Bank. Plus, they only use organic coffee!
7. Set of Coffee Spoons
I can’t help but think of Alanis Morrisette’s iconic song whenever the subject of spoons is brought up. While one thousand spoons when all you need is a knife may be ironic, in my house we always seem short of spoons.
This cute pair a little spoons are perfect for scooping coffee or stirring milk and sugar into a fresh brew. Gift them as a favor alone or pair them with a packet of coffee or pretty sugar cubes.
