@Hbonnell:  How about you give the 17 y/o a personalized key chain from a company called things remembered? I gave my MOH one and she’s 18. She loved it. Here is a pic of what I mean. You could put her initals on it or her name? Oh, this could also work for the other teenager as well.

What about a bottle of sparkling cider or something similar so it goes along with what other guests are receiving?  It might be kind of cool and ‘grown-up’ to have a sparkly beverage to go along with everyone else.


Also, when I read your thread title I giggled and thought, “Who would give teenagers away as wedding favors?” lol…  I must be in an odd mood today 😛

@Hbonnell: If you want to stick with the beverage theme, you should check out Jones Soda – you can do a custom bottle, and give each under-age guest a bottle with a picture of you and your soon-to-be husband, and a custom message on the back. You could even choose a soda that matches your wedding colour.

Good luck!

I would not try to do the same thing or even similar to what you are doing for the adults. I don’t know a teenager who would want a personalized anything. They would think that is very “grade school” .

I would get them each a gift card to a store you know they love.

@julies1949:  I think this is the best idea.

I wouldn’t have wanted a kid version of what everyone else was getting.

I also wouldn’t want anything personalized.


Cash or a gift card I think would be best. Unless you know something they’ve been pineing after.

Chocolate is almost always appreciated by teenagers (check first though – I personally couldn’t eat it as a teen, and I know it gave my sister acne). You may want to splurge a bit on Godiva or other high-end chocolate, but don’t expect much gratitude from it if your 17 year old has a bit of an attitude problem. They’ll most likely just eat it and not really think about the thought behind it too much.

Since they are your future step-daughters (and I right there? you keep referring to them as “guests”, I’m a little confused), maybe less of a favor and more of a gift?

How about an Etsy giftcard?
I feel like that’s a gift anyone would be thrilled to have – even picky teenagers.
If Etsy existed when I was a teen, I’d have been over the moon to get a giftcard!

i was going to say the same as @mgol25:. Those were are original favors but we found out of favorite brewery who also makes sodas does it as well. 

Otherwise you could maybe get them a gift card to a spa to have their hair/nails done or something?

I always think edible favors are a hit. I’d stick to your original plan of chocolates!

I really like the upscale chocolates idea!

If someone would have given me something personalized when I was 17, my eyes would have gotten stuck from rolling them so hard! And I still wouldn’t be thankful for the chocolates… But I would secretly enjoy them.

@julies1949:  Definitely agree!

My kids are 14 and 17… same age as yours… and really all they want is money or gift cards!

@Hbonnell:  I’m sorry, totally off-topic, but why didn’t they try atrifical insemination with the husband’s sperm first? Or do some tests to see who was having the issue? It just seems really odd that they jumped to getting sperm from someone else before exploring all avenues to have a child themselves…

On topic: My fiancé got me a box of Godiva chocolates (one of the boxes that you pick all the individual chocolates to fill it with) and it was awesome. I vote for that.
