I would leave that behind if I was a guest. Just not my cup of tea. Same with lip balm. I think vanilla extract is your safest bet…

As a guest, I probably wouldn’t even know what it is and leave it behind.

I agree with PP. While I may use the heating pad, I think a lot of people may not. It just seems like a lot of work for something that people might not even take. I think vanilla extract is a great idea though.

marymary123:  I think it’s an awesome idea– because I live rice heating pads!!  I think it would be either hit or miss….love em or hate em.

 

I would have done them if I did favors– and I would have included a little note that said these are one of MrsEme’s favortie things to warm up on a cold MN night to personalize it.

marymary123:  It’s a neat idea, but I would never use it and would either leave it there or toss it once I got home. I do know how to use them & what for. In fact, I purchased a set for DH & my brother for christmas 3 yrs ago for camping trips and they are still in their packages in our plastic camping tub…. 

Now homemade vanilla extract would be awesome & I’d be using that thing up as quick as I could!

I would not understand the purpose. Never used a heating pad.

You can also add essential oils to the rice pads and make them “aromatherapy”….. Also dried lavendar works as well.

With that being said, I made rice pads for christmas gifts and almost everyone thought they were satchels….To keep your sock drawer fresh….*sigh*

marymary123:  I think this a very strange thing to receive as a wedding guest. It’s a thoughtful gift for a friend or family member, but not for a wedding favor.

marymary123:  LOVE the idea, very original! Especially good if you’re having your wedding during a cold season. My fiance’s mom made me one and I use it all the time, whether to warm up or soothe aching muscles. With wedding favors you can never please everyone. Some people might be confused and leave one behind, others will use and cherish theirs for years. And hey, if you have leftovers they will make great holiday gifts for neighbors and coworkers. I say go for it!
