As you are making your wedding plans, you will eventually come to the point where you must choose the wedding favors you will give to your guests. Making this decision can be hard, but you can simplify it if you think in terms of usefulness. Giving your guests favors they can use will be more valuable to them than giving gifts that are simply cute. Here are two ideas of useful items you could give as favors that would also look cute set out on the tables.


Anything your guests can eat would be considered a useful gift because most people enjoy eating, and there are hundreds of ideas to choose from. You could hand-make edible treats, such as cookies or candies, and place them in mesh netting. You could complete the gifts by wrapping a ribbon around the netting.

One cute idea is to place two graham crackers, a bar of chocolate, and several marshmallows in a small bag. You could call this a smore treat bag. This ideas is creative, cute, edible, and useful. Another idea is to make cookie-in-a-jar sets. This involves placing the dry ingredients for a cookie recipe in a jar. You can then attach directions to it and give one to each guest.

If you prefer not to make treats yourself, you could consider buying personalized treats to give away. Here are some ideas:

  • Candy bars
  • Treat bags
  • Small boxes that contain a donut, cupcake, or muffin

Skin Products

A second idea to think about is giving away skin products. Most people enjoy getting small bottles of lotions, bath soaps, body washes, or hand soaps. This is a gift that anyone could use, and it would be extremely practical. In addition to bottled skin care products, there are a variety of other types you could choose too, including:

  • Flower petal bath soaps
  • Bath salts
  • Hand soaps carved in the shape of hearts
  • Bath fizzies

If you are really creative, you could even make your own soap products. Making your own gifts can be time-consuming; however, it can also be extremely thoughtful too. If you make your own, you could also make personalized labels to attach to the gifts.
