Ok so you guys didn’t like my perfume as favors idea and you were right once again 🙂 So what do you think about boxes of assorted home made cookies? We(me and my mom are pretty good bakers) and our cookies are always eaten very fast. I know this may not be the most original idea but I think thats its at least something that would be eaten and not tossed into a closet and never looked at again. Opinions please. What are you all doing for favors?

I think that is an awesome idea!! I’m thinking about doing this. My mom and mil are amazing bakers. I know mil wants to bake for the wedding, so I’m not sure if she’d be okay with making enough to box them as favors too.
Ultimately we are making a donation to cancer research on their behalf. Our family has been hit by cancer to many times.
We are also having a candy bar, where I will provide bags for them to take what they want home.

just wanted to throw in my 2 cents…I think this is a great idea. very personal, sweet, and if you do something cute with the wrapping/presentation, then you can take something that “may not be the most original idea” and turn it into something sweet and special 🙂 Plus, almost everyone I know say that “edibles” always make the BEST favors.

We did cookies (sugar and chocolate pixies) and everybody loved them! Plus, you can bake ahead, package, and freaze which saves a lot of stress the weekend before the wedding.

I’d definitely appreciate cookies as a favor! Yum! But, are you going to spend the days/hours leading up to your wedding baking?

Love the idea! And DITTO to the PP who mentioned listing allergies! ex. Peanut, Gluten, etc.
My mom makes the best fudge, people cant wait for Christams time to have some! So we are going to use 2x2x2 red square boxes and put about 2-3 bite size pieces in there! If we do a mix, we too will list the ingredients or the names if self explanatory. We are also thinking of other “Christmas goodies” we could incorporate as well!
