Top 8 Inexpensive Wedding Favors for Outdoors and Beach Celebrations

Many inexpensive wedding favors are overlooked because they seem too simple. On the other hand, sometimes we think that a specific item must be expensive and therefore we don’t even consider it as a potential option.

Here’s a short list of low-cost wedding party gifts:

  1. Flip flops
  2. Sunglasses
  3. Reusable bottles (tumblers, cups, insulated bottles, etc)
  4. Hand fans
  5. Paper umbrellas
  6. Cooler bags and tote bag
  7. Compact and travel curiosities!
  8. (It’s a surprise ūüôā

This is only a tiny part of what’s available on the market. Most importantly, these gifts are not only aesthetical but also practical.

We all remember receiving plain and useless gifts that we eventually got rid off or “accidentally” forgot at the wedding dinner table…

Well, to avoid spending money on such products it’s always important to ask ourselves “Would I keep this if I was the one receiving it?” If the answer is “Yes” then you’re on the right path.

Surprisingly, some of these can cost as low as $1.79 while most expensive items are around $17.

It’s essential to understand that buying in bulk and at the right time usually equals saving lots of money when it comes to most¬†wedding-related expenses.
