Simply Favours' Blog
Personalising your wedding favours just adds that extra special touch that adds to your decor and makes a gift feel so much more special to your wedding guests. We always have a note to say you should contact us for personalisation, today we want to explain your options a bit better to you.
We have an inhouse designer who designs the most beautiful thank you tags, we have a few templates on the site already which you can choose from. We update the templates with your name and date and then we will send the artwork to you for approval. Once you give us the go ahead we send the tags to the printers and have them cut for you. When you receive your wedding favours we will send the personalised thank you tags together with a small plastic loop to allow for easy attaching of the tags. We even designed labels for the love bird shakers.
We also offer engraving on some of our wedding favours. You can send us the personalised message that you want engraved, we will then design the artwork and send it to you for approval. Once this is done the favours are simply engraved and sent to you. This process takes about two weeks from start to finish. The costs involved include R180 for the artwork set up and then R6 per item for the engraving. The engraving is of an exceptional quality and will definitely add a nostalgic element to your wedding favours. Examples of items that can be engraved for you are:
Classic Bottle opener keyring
Hip Flask Wedding Favours
Hip Flask keyring
Happy Hearts Smiley keyring
Charming Keyring bag charm
Power bank wedding favours
You can also let us know if you want to change the colour of the ribbon on your wedding favours. This option is available at R6 per gift. Simply let us know what your wedding colours are, then we will send you the ribbon in that colour. This is a personalisation option, you can get your family together and ask them to help you quickly change the ribbons.
Please note that we have a minimum order quantity of atleast 30 for any personalisation
We hope this article helped to clear up some of your questions on personalisation. If there is anything we missed, please let us know.
Until next time, happy planning.

Christmas means many things for all of us, but the one thing we all have in common over this time is that we realise how much we have to be thankful for.
Simply Favours had an exceptionally good year and we would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support during 2013. We always quote Alfred Painter who said: “Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality”. We realised this once again this December when we took little favours to an orphanage nearby our warehouse.
We sprayed our wire boxes and added some glitter, filled them with delicious sweets and gave one to each child. They were ecstatic and their eyes lit up with excitement, smiling from ear to ear. Our spirits truly got rejuvenated and we feel so blessed that we could bring some happiness into their lives, how ever small our gifts may have been.
These are the same children to whom you all donated blankets this winter and they really crawled deep into our hearts this year. We hope that we will always be able to bring some form of joy or comfort to them and that they will grow up to show the same love and care to others one day. May you have a wonderful Christmas and appreciate your family and all your blessings once more. Love,
The 2014 wedding season is about to begin. With a new year comes a new range of wedding favours were sourced. We looked at the latest wedding trends and found fresh ideas for your wedding guests’ gifts.
In South Africa we love our wine, so naturally we started with the wine favours. We found the cutest little bottle opener in a handbag shape and to add to the cuteness, the wedding favour is hot pink.
If you are one of the people who believe that love is the ‘salt’ of life and the only thing to add real flavour, then you will love our new salt and pepper range. We added a ’Hugs and Kisses’ favour, a ’Fleur-de-lis’ favour, a ‘Damask’ salt and pepper shaker as well as the most adorable flower set. All three these wedding favours will add a little extra glamour to your wedding guests’ day and they will love their gifts.
The Lace coaster set is one of our personal favourites at the moment and we are using it in our office while we work. This wedding favour is great for French or Vintage themed weddings and will look beautiful on any reception table.
For the DIY wedding favours we added three beautiful boxes. The first is the ’Love bird favour box’, and then there is the ’Rustic favour box’ and the ’Pretty in Pink – Pom pom favour box’. All three these gift boxes are great for your budget as they are fairly cheap favours and yet they will make your guests smile fondly at them when they see them. We noticed a trend rising for love birds and decided to add an inexpensive bird cage wire favour box to our range as well. These little wire boxes has already received quite a lot of attention and you can be sure that it will look beautiful on your wedding reception tables.
Keep an eye out for our next blog, we are on a mission and hope to help you as much as possible with your wedding planning.
Remember, wether you stay in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town or Pofadder, we deliver to your door across South Africa :-)

We are exhibiting at the Wedding Expo this weekend at the Coca Cola Dome. This might possibly be the best Wedding Expo in South Africa and we highly recommend that you attend it. Your wedding planning list will shorten significantly after the expo. While you are there, pop into our stand at stand C29. We are going to have a competition and also give away some discount voucher to the brides that come to see us.
Our wedding favours will be on display and you can even buy samples from us and place your orders. Our friendly staff will be ready to answer any questions you may have and provide you with valuable advice.
Some of the wedding favours that you can expect to see will definitely be our little wire boxes. The photos simply do not do these cute boxes justice.
The ever so popular “Love Bean” wedding favour will also be there. The packaging of this wedding favour might possibly be my favourite, not to mention how unique the gift is!!!
If there is any specific wedding favour that you would like to see, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love for ever
A French themed
wedding may easily be the most romantic theme that you can choose. And your options are endless! You can work the theme into your dress, the
table décor, your wedding favours, a beautiful venue and perhaps the best of
all French cuisine.
Here is a collection of ideas which we really liked. The first would be the beautiful vintage lace vale, the soft rusty pink flowers in a white oversized "wine glass", a stunning wedding cake with exquisite detail and of course, champagne!!!!!
Then there is the classic Fleur-de-lis glass coaster set. The Fleur-de-lis symbol is synonam with France and their elegant culture. Equally as stunning is the Gold Brocade Wedding Favour coasters. You can easily insert a photo of the couple, or keep our little "Thank you" card and allow your wedding guests to choose which photo to put in the favour
The little street light place holders are the perfect favours to transport your wedding guests back to a full moon night in Paris....
The little damask candle holders are perfect, not only to add a bit of romance to your reception tables, but it also fits in perfectly with a French theme. Your guests will absolutely adore the attention to detail on this wedding favour.
In addition to the wedding favours, you can use beautiful items to provide a certain je ne sais quoi to the table, below are some stunning ideas
Good luck with all the planning, and remember, the Simply Favours team is always here to help.
Until next time, good bye :-)
