DIY Wedding Favors

Thinking about how to bring down the cost of your wedding? Thinking about what you'll give to everyone who shows up on the bid day? Thinking about making your wedding unique and memorable? Get your bridesmaids, (and maybe even the groomsmen?) to sit down and help you with this great, unique DIY wedding favor that follows tradition, but is personalized to showcase your special day!

The traditional wedding candy is Jordan Almonds, but anything sweet will do.  Use whatever candies or treats are the bride and groom's favorites.  If you are working on a tight budget, you may opt to forgo a large cake and just use these favors as dessert.  Its your day, don't make it more stressful than it has to be!
You can get fun, personalized goodies from Sweet Wrappings, and check out their blog for more fun ideas!  But after the candy is eaten, don't let your wedding attendees forget the day!  Give them something to remember, and package sweets in a nice tea-light candle holder, which you can get cheap at a dollar store or dollar store supply company.  You can decorate the candle holder with whatever you like, including your names and wedding date, gems and glitter, or other craft items.  Make it unique, and something to celebrate the day with.  
Voila!  Now you have the traditional sweet gift, and a unique favor that is a memento for each wedding attendee to look at every time they burn a candle.  Don't forget to save one for yourself so you remember too!
Contact Sweet Wrappings to see what they can do for your wedding or other event!

Personalized Chocolate Bar Wrappers Sweeten Reward Based Crowd Funding

If you spend your time browsing sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, personalized chocolate bar wrappers could be just what you need. Make custom chocolates part of your rewards based crowd funding. It may be a winning strategy for you as you invent the coolest cooler, revolutionize the next generation in potato salad, or just launch a profitable small business.
Millions of people are turning to crowd funding to raise money from a large number of people online. It is a proven technique for starting a business or raising donations for a worthy cause. You can have an impact even if you do not have a lot of money to spend up front, and you can reach all kinds of audiences over the Internet.
In addition to working on your pitch and your video, you may want to consider offering rewards as a helpful way to motivate your supporters and build momentum. Some crowd funding sites even require you to offer a certain number of rewards.
That is where personalized chocolates come in. You can use them on their own or in conjunction with other incentives if you are using a tiered system.

Custom Chocolates for Lower Tier Incentives: Candy bars are an inexpensive premium that people love. While a cheap t-shirt often looks shoddy, affordable chocolates are tasty and attractive. It is a nice step up from just listing their names on a website without taxing your budget too much.

Custom Chocolates for Higher Tier Incentives: Naturally, taking pre-orders and lining up major investors is ideal. Adding chocolates to the other rewards you give your best supporters is one more way to express your gratitude and make a lasting impression.
Raise the capital you need while you treat yourself and your supporters to delicious custom chocolates with your special message on each wrapper. Contact us for quality designs and friendly service.

Anniversary Custom Candy Wrappers Make The Perfect Surprise Gift

There is something really special about being invited to an anniversary party.  It's hard to imagine something more worthy of celebration than a couple whose commitment to loving each other has helped them weather the storms of life, and has led to a marriage that has lasted many, many years.
Of course, it can sometimes be difficult to know what kind of gift is appropriate to bring to an anniversary party, because a couple who has been married for a long time usually has accumulated a lot of household items. It is difficult to guess what kind of gift will be both meaningful and useful.
However, your gift to the couple can actually be a fun favor for the party. The next time you are invited to an anniversary celebration, you can create anniversary custom candy wrappers, and slip them on to Hershey wrappers and give them to the anniversary couple to give out to their guests. They can keep several for themselves as a memento of their fun party as well.
 You can customize a candy wrapper with photos of the happy couple on their wedding day and a photo of them together more recently, as well as the date of their wedding and how many years they have been married. The couple will be so surprised to see their faces on a candy bar. The guests will all enjoy eating the candy and they can keep the wrapper as a beautiful keepsake. 

Please contact us to find out how fun and easy it is to create a beautiful keepsake gift for the anniversary couple!

Unique Bridal Shower Favor Announces the Bride's New Name

Share a unique bridal shower favor that announces the new name of the bride. When you are planning to get married, you know that one task will be changing your name, and you probably hope you will only have to do it once in your life. Honor the unique occasion with a custom chocolate bar.
Studies show that 90 to 95 percent of married women still take the last name of their husbands, according to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune. Apparently, hyphenation is way down since its heyday in the 1980s, but turning your maiden name into your middle name is a growing trend. Of course, there are also the creative couples who take their separate names and blend them into one new word.

Designing your bridal shower chocolate favors: Help the bride get used to her new name. Maybe you want wrappers that introduce Mrs.. Mary Smith or spell out just her new initials.
Additional uses for your chocolate favors: Go ahead and order some extra chocolates if you like. The guest of honor can take them home with her or bring them to her office. They will help her to remind her colleagues of her new name. She can also snack on them when she is filling out all those name change forms ahead of her.
Selecting other bridal shower gifts with the new name theme: Present the bride with additional gifts that celebrate her upcoming change of identity. She might love a new robe or personalized luggage. Dressing table ornaments with her initials are also a lovely and thoughtful choice.
Contact us for prompt and friendly service when you order your personalized chocolate favors for your bridal shower. Everyone will love this affordable and delicious touch that will help them remember the new name of the bride.

Graduation Favors: Going Beyond the Expected for Today's Successful Students

As the school year starts to wind down, it’s time to start thinking about that proud day when your children will be donning their caps and gowns. How will you choose to celebrate their scholastic accomplishments? Will it be a small gathering or a full-blown, Hollywood style affair? Either way, now is a good time to figure out which graduation favors would be best for whatever celebratory activities you may have planned. First, decide if you want the graduation favors to be generic or something much more personal. If personalized favors are what you really want to invest in, we can help.

At Sweet Wrappings, we specialize in creating customized, graduation favors for students of all ages. So, it doesn’t matter if your child is finishing preschool or med school, we’ve got options that are sure to please. For example, you could peruse our line of engraved chocolates and request a design that matches your child’s educational or long-term, career interests. The customization could stop there or you could continue on and select a candy bar wrapper and custom box lid to match. There are even graduation themed, custom box bands, banners, greetings and chocolate shapes to choose from too.
Did you know that our graduation favors can do more than just celebrate a student’s accomplishments? It’s true. We’ve also had customers purchase products as a “thank-you” for people who gave their beloved graduates gifts on graduation day. The wrapper greetings are perfect for such purposes because they allow graduates an opportunity to hand write a unique, personal message on the back of each chocolate bar. Consequently, grandmas, uncles and aunts won’t have to receive the same “thank-you” note as distant cousins and the neighbors down the street. To learn more about our entire suite of graduation favors, please contact us at Sweet Wrappings.

Discount Wedding Favors in Chocolate for Off Season Weddings

Discount wedding favors in chocolate are perfect for couples savvy enough to save money by scheduling their wedding for the off season. You may have to put forth a little effort to pick a month when there will be less competition for your favorite reception site, but we make it easy to order delicious custom chocolate favors at very attractive prices.

Most experts agree on the months when you are likely to find the best prices for wedding products and services. Unless you live in Hawaii with mild weather all year round, the coldest days of winter from January to March are prime time for frugal brides and grooms. Late fall is also worth looking into. December is iffy because of the holidays. The priciest dates tend to be in June and September with August and October coming in close behind.
While you cut spending by watching the calendar, you can always treat your guests to chocolate favors. Maybe you want to play up the seasonal theme with designs that evoke the time of year. For fall, you could choose pumpkins and autumn trees. For winter, maybe you would like all the magic of snow and ice or a cozy fireside.
To personalize your chocolates even more, take a picture of the two of you enjoying your favorite seasonal sport or strolling through the falling leaves or snow.

For a more subtle effect, just borrow the colors associated with that time of year such as warm golds and green for autumn. For winter, how about cool whites or holiday red and green or festive metallics like gold and silver?
Congratulations on saving money on your wedding. No matter what month you choose to walk down the aisle, contact us for chocolate wedding favors that will delight your guests and your budget.

Personalized Candy Makes a Great Gift for Minimalists

In recent years, there's been a trend towards minimalism. People who have grown tired of consumerism are now afraid of accumulating things that end up cluttering their home and life. Thus, when buying gifts for anyone that might be a minimalist, it's best to go with a gift that can actually be consumed.

Delicious Consumable Gift
When it comes to consumable gifts, nothing beats a delectable gift than can be eaten with pleasure. And a food item that's loved by mostly everyone is candy. Hence, candy makes for a pretty safe gift to give to anyone who's tired of having excess stuff taking over their personal space.

Make It a Personalized Gift
Receiving a candy bar is always nice, but even better is receiving one that's wrapped especially for you. So keep that in mind when buying sweets as a gift for the special people in your life. They'll appreciate the extra effort you put into getting personalized candy just for them.

Personalization Makes the Gift Meaningful
There's nothing a minimalist hates more than meaningless things. When you customize a candy bar with personalized wrapper, you're helping to give value to the wrapper. You're transforming what might have been a throwaway item into a sweet keepsake that the recipient might actually want to hold onto for years.
Ready to create a custom wrapper to go along with a consumable gift for the special minimalist in your life? Contact us for assistance with ordering and to learn more about all of our products.
