Both practical and themed. Custom or homemade soaps are lining farmer's markets everywhere, so it only makes sense that a themed country wedding would offer these as parting gifts. Between shea butter and lavender, there are many fall scents to choose from when picking your soap favors.

Pretzels are one heck of a snack, especially for those out in the country. Amp up these already delicious snacks by adding in some sweetness with chocolate. By mixing sweet and salty, you're assuring you'll hit both savory and sweet tooth guests preferences.

If you're having a wedding down in the South, there's one amazing drink you can have guests bring home with them (one they can't get anywhere else). That drink is moonshine. 

With its intense flavor and strong alcoholic content, you'll have guests never leaving the dance floor. But word to the wise, if gifting as party favors, let your guests know that they should drink responsibly. 

(Try the iconic Apple Pie Moonshine from Palmetto Moonshine)

7. Gardening seeds

What's more country themed than wild flowers and fields of green? Let your love grow long after your wedding day and gift your guests gardening seeds to plant various flowers, fruits, or veggies in their very own backyard.

8. Specialty flavor macaroons

Macaroons are delicious! While typically a French dessert, turn them country by implementing country and Southern style flavors.

Cookies are loved by all and can fit any theme or occassion. Gift custom cookies at your country wedding as parting gifts, except you may come to find guests eat them at the reception or even on the way home.

Try unique shapes and styles to fit the country theme, such as cowboy boots, mason jars, or horseshoes.

(Ask for a unique creation of custom cookies from bakeries like Oak City Cookies)

A different take on Southern and country, this party favor hails from good ol' New Orleans, Louisianna. Minus the beads and grenade drinks, NOLA is known for its exceptional coffee.

Bring guests home with the ultimate next day gift by wrapping up some coffee bags to go. Their brains will thank your for saving their late night escapades at your wedding reception.

We believe country and pie are two synoynms of each other. One should not go without the other, so in that case, what's a country wedding without some pie? While your recpetion is meant for the traditional wedding cake, give these mini pie party favors to your guests.  

(Try personalized mini pies from The Knot Shop)

16. Festive cocktail mixers

Just like bourbon and moonshine, country liquor has a special place in many hearts. And so do country themed cocktails.

Give your wedding party guests cocktail mixers to bring home with them (that excites their tastebuds at their very own bar carts). Bonus points if your wedding favors are you and your partner's favorite cocktail mixers, as it adds a nice nudge to personality.

Those in the country love to cook authentic and homemade meals, especially with all the locally grown produce. With all that homemade cooking comes the healthy and delicious cooking oils (or vinegars for seasoning). 

If you and your partner are having a country themed wedding, give wedding party favors that beautifully reflect the country with infused oils and vinegars to bring home with them. 

(Try infused olive oil mini containers)

18. Country themed bottle openers

One of the most popular wedding favor trends is customized drinkware or accessories, and country wedding themes are no different. One example of a perfect parting gift with country nuances is a themed bottle opener.

Whether guests put them in their purses, cabinets at home, or even keychains, they'll constantly be reminded of your special wedding day everytime they open their beer or soft drink.

Coasters are an essential item that everybody needs, but seldomly people buy. So guests would be over the moon if they were gifted coasters as your wedding party favors, especially country themed (like natural wooden coasters), as they blend with most house decor.
