Save-the-date magnets have become the latest and greatest way to announce your wedding date, especially for those anticipating a lot of out-of-town guests. It’s not a paper announcement or email that might get easily discarded or misplaced. It’s stuck right there on the fridge in plain view to make sure that no one forgets your wedding day. But we’d like to take it one step further. Instead of sending a regular save-the-date notice, why not send a magnetic wedding favor?

Take this snowflake ornament for example. Sure, it would make a fabulous winter wedding favor. But it can be so much more! Instead of placing a photo in the frame, include your wedding date announcement for a unique alternative to the save-the-date notice. It can be hung on their Christmas tree or placed on the fridge because it also has a magnet on the back. People typically keep refrigerator magnets for years, and this one is definitely a keeper.
