‘Tis the season for giving but there's no reason the gifts you give (or put on your own wish list!) can't inspire you for your wedding. For our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide, Love Inc. editors have curated a series of gift ideas that can also serve purpose for the big day.

The first items we're asking Santa for: stocking stuffers that can double as wedding favors!

  1. Wooden Coasters: A handsome wooden coaster set will fit any decor. For favors, have them engraved with your wedding date and have them waiting for guests at their seats.
  2. Personalized macarons: Oui, oui! Swallow My Words allows you to order a custom box of five macarons with specific messages and flavors of your choosing. For a gift, you can put the recipientā€™s name on them along with well wishes; if you choose to use them as a favor, get them monogrammed!
  3. Rewined candles: Confession, after receiving Rewined's candles in a gift bag, our editors have officially become obsessed. A treat for wine lovers (hey, that's us!), these aromatic, long-lasting soy wax beauties are made from repurposed wine bottles in Charleston.
  4. Totes: For those who don't have stockings hung by the chimney with care, gift small presents in a chic tote (a fantastic gift in itself!). We love the idea of personalizing the tote with your recipient's name or your wedding date. Or, even better, receive a tote by donating to marriage equality. If you give $35 or more to Freedom to Marry, you'll receive a “Make It Official” bag that's totes adorbs!
  5. Lavender Sachets: Sure to make your loved ones' stocking smell heavenly, lavender sachets are also the perfect size for favors. Bonus: you can buy or DIY!
