I was torn about favours too. But I was in a discount store today and found large boxes of ferrero rocher chocolates (the white, dark, milk chocolate kind) on super duper mega sale, so I bought 5 boxes. Everyone will get 3 or 4 quality chocolates with a heartfelt thank you note, and honestly, I think that’s perfect. No one really wants to lug something home and they don’t need anything engraved or personalized. The popcorn sounds great. It’s light and tasty and will pack home easily.

@indecisivebride89:  What if you combined ideas?  Tell the future inlaws that they may purchase the cutting boards and then make cute mini loaves of bread to give with them.  That way you get the best of both worlds.

@indecisivebride89:  That seems expensive are they paying for the favors. I like the seeds that people can take home and plant. It really goes with your theme, I also like honey/jam.

@Cappugcino:  that’s a great idea.

@indecisivebride89:  if you do give something like a cutting board, make sure that it’s not personalized.

I wouild suggest a chocolate bread recipe like – this one.  It doesn’t have yeast in it.  Make it as mini-loaves rather than full sized.  It’s the closest I could find online to the one that we pass through our family.  At Christmas I make mini-loaves of it to give as gifts to people.

@indecisivebride89:  Sounds like they just expect you to spend a lot more money on favors. Is this a cultural norm to them? It seems unusual to me to give such expensive favors at wedding, usually people spend a few dollars not $10-15 each.

@indecisivebride89:  Tea is a FANTASTIC option!!!!!!  There are TONS of high quality, loose leaf or bagged teas that you can give as favors that would be very tasteful and elegant.  Not to mention tasty!  ๐Ÿ™‚  Lupicia has a pretty good deal (I personally LOVE their Kotobuki tea favor).  I’m a tea FANATIC, so if you need more suggestions, feel free to PM me.
