I think your keychain idea is cute, but I probably would leave it since it’s not personal to me. Also I don’t really understand…do you live in Asia and Africa? 

The general rule around here is that favors should be edible. How about some local candy?

Very nice idea!

I think one keychain could be cute, maybe get something else representing Asia instead of a keychain? Even though you said you want to be more unique than candy in a box, I think a combination of interesting sweets and the key chain can work well to represent the two of you.

I think it is a nice thought but honestly I think it is something people won’t take home or go to people’s junk drawer or trash. Not everyone likes key chains and those who do usually have something that is personal to them, not someone else. I like the idea of incoorperating Asia and Africa if that is a big part of your lives. I think candy from Asia would be good, or an Asian tea? You can order it online as well, it isn’t something your FI would have to find himself in Asia if it isn’t possible.  Another thought it do something completely different for favors all together and then just set up a fun little table with some pics of you and FI in Asia and Africa with a couple local pieces of art or whatever cool souvieneers you have collected and a maybe a little note framed on what the countries mean to you both.

Personally I think it’s a lovely ideas as it represents your background. 🙂

I think it is a great idea as I am not a fan of edible favours.  Another idea if you feel like a diy project is bubble magnets.  We made ours and they turned out great.  They are totally customizable as you could put any image on the magnet.  If you feel like the travel route you could use a map to punch out the destinations that have meaning and or use pictures representing Africa and or Asia.

They cost around $1.75 each including the silver tin to put them in.  I made one for the women and a more masculine one (aviation theme) for thr men.

Try not to kill yourself over them….no matter what they are edible or not you will always have left overs. 

And in the closed tin with a thank you label.

@paperdoorway:  I think keychains are a little too personal (I would only use one that represented me), but I love the idea of having something from Africa or Asia. I think you should definitely incorporate something African/Asian into your favors!
