Wedding and party favors can be hard to think of, but I find that people are very into the idea of miniatures right now. Whether it’s something they’ll use, eat, or wear, tiny versions of things are just very trendy right now!

People can always use matches in an emergency and this look adorable in this little corked jar. Just remember to adhere a strip of the striker paper to the side, top or bottom so people can actually light the matches!

** Think red & green matches for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, etc.

3. Ornate Matchstick Star
