- Potpourri is a great DIY favor idea. A gift of a sweetly scented bag of homemade potpourri will surely remind your guests of you in their homes.

Spoon out this heady potpourri into gift bags and an affordable DIY favor is ready.
- If you love your cuppa of hot chocolate then this is a fantastic affordable DIY favor idea. All you have to do is get some transparent glass jars. Fill them with a mix of sugar, powdered milk, cocoa, peppermint candies, and marshmallows. Tie a ribbon and label the jars. This favor is sure to win many warm hearts.
- If you love baking, impress your guests with some homemade vanilla extract. Though you’ll have to start much in advance as a good vanilla extract takes time to mature, almost a month. But you can prepare the extract much earlier and bottle it as DIY favor. Get vanilla beans and slice them gently. Soak these sliced vanilla beans in spiced rum or bourbon. Store this mix in a dark and cool place. Let it mature, the vanilla extract should be ready in a month’s time. Bottle it in glass tubes and gift as favors to your family and friends.
These affordable DIY favors do find a special place in the hearts of your friends and family at all times.
