When curating welcome wedding bag gift ideas for out of town guests, it’s nice to make them locally-inspired. You want to give your guests interesting yet unique things they’ll need the night of the wedding, or at least small items they’d love to receive. And in keeping it local, your items are a great way to give back to your community. Of course, there’s the obligatory water and snacks to keep guests satiated, but we’ve also come up with a few clever items you might not know come straight from, or are inspired by, the Twin Cities.
SMACK IT TO ME
Kind Lips comes in many flavors, and it’s a great lip balm to keep your smacker in tip top shape. Plus, Kind Lips donates 20% of proceeds to anti-bullying organizations. How sweet is that?
KEEP HIM CLEAN
The men are often forgotten with the welcome basket items, given all the female-driven products out there, so let’s not ignore those beards and whiskers with this great line of shaving products from Honour Essentials.
A SWEET TREAT
Everyone loves sweets in their welcome basket, whether they break them open pre-wedding or late at night. These locally-made Thumbs cookies are amazing, and come in a variety of flavors.
GREAT FOR THE AM
Whether you partied hard or not, everyone will appreciate a great cup of joe the next morning. Honour Essentials makes a unique blend that is sure to please.
A REUSABLE CARRY-ALL
Put all of your items in this unique Twin Cities tote from Maptote for a gift they’ll re-use over and over. It’s a great talking piece, equally practical and stylish, and the perfect welcome wedding bag gift idea in and of itself.
