9 Wedding Favors We'd Be Thrilled To Receive

Wedding favors aren’t a necessity, but they can be fun — when a couple has put some thought into the gift. When the favor is something that a guest can actually use and enjoy (i.e., if you were considering a framed photo of you and your beloved…don’t).
On the other hand, if the little token of guest appreciation speaks directly to your tastes, it’s a win-win for everyone. Ahead, a roundup of favors that'll not only be well-received but will also be a way for your partygoers to remember the couple whose love they just celebrated.

Whether it’s a savory roast or the best chocolate chip cookie in the world, everything tastes better with a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt. Pair a small tin of this with a personalized recipe card, and you get extra points for this simple party favor.
3 of 9
For The Party Couple
You want your guests to have a good time — hello, open bar! — but you don’t want them to remember your big day by the bigger hangover they’ll have the next morning. Have the Hangover Heaven Bus make a pit stop at your reception, so that all your party people can head off their hangovers with an IV treatment full of vitamins and electrolytes.

For The Green Thumb Couple
Just because you’ve got a thriving garden doesn’t mean all of your guests are planting aficionados, too. Give them a low-maintenance succulent in a handmade ceramic pot, so that even if they manage to kill the plant, they’ll still have a cool keepsake.

For The Non-Traditional Couple
You’re making a huge commitment, but that doesn’t mean your guests have to. Temporary tattoos let everyone have fun with ink without any regrets!

For The Destination-Wedding Couple
Your guests have all flown out to celebrate you, so make sure their flight back is enjoyable, too. This little tin includes all the makings for an old-fashioned (sans booze) to keep the party going even on the way home.

For The Eco-Conscious Couple
Getting married is like planting a seed of love that will grow the rest of your lives, so why not let your guests plant something, too? Available in region-specific mixes, these seed bombs are a favor they’ll want to get rid of for the good of the planet.
