What do you think of a (secondhand) book or a dvd as a favor? I know that we won’t be able to get everyone’s taste spot on but thought it might be a fun idea (not worried budget wise). I know I’d love a book or DVD but as I’m not receiving it, it doesn’t really matter what I’d like!

I’m a reader and I think it would be very hard for me to find something that I would like as a favor. I’m sure a lot would be left over.

My thought is that favors should always be edible. Or nonexistent. I don’t even notice when there are no favors.
If I want a book or DVD, I’m going to get it myself. Or if I have an extra $10, I’m going to go browse the shelves.

cece_intheuk: I would think it was pretty unique and kind of fun! Might even get some guests mingling for tradsies if you weren’t quite spot on.
I’m not even much of a reader but who doesn’t want to try out a new random book? Especially one I didn’t have to buy. Maybe you could write a short little note inside the cover? Something generic like “Thanks for enjoying our special day with us!” (nothing personal in case they want to trade)

VictorianChick: Thanks for the input. I worry that you’d be right, but whatever was left behind would go off to a charity shop, so at least it wouldn’t feel too wasteful.
AllyCRN: Yeah, I’ve also always thought edible favors were the only ones worth having (until half an hour ago when I thought of this!).
playdohpants: Ha, I’m glad someone likes it! I hadn’t even thought of the trading aspect! Thanks for the message idea – would definitely try to incorporate that.
