We are doing raspberry jam.  I will be helping a relative (she is the pro) with it.

I don’t really care that it isn’t super original.  It is tasty, people will consume it and it isn’t some random monogrammed knick-knack they will toss.

truffles freeze well and are fun and easy to make!

You could make homemade soup. My mom made some olive oil strawberry soap recently and its awesome!

You could make flavored olive oil with its own label. 

My mom made alcohol as favors for my shower. It was a huge hit.

We are using a famiy cookie recipe and giving everyone 2 cookies.  My mom is baking a bunch today and just freezing them until the day before the wedding.

I like the cookie idea.  If you wanted to do something a little fancy, you could do sugar cookies, decorated with hardening frosting, in a glassine bag with a bow.

How about something that you and your husband like? Something that is part of your relationship?Like we made our own homebrews because that’s something him and I started doing together. And we love microbrews.

Or I like it when I see mason jars with the ingredients for cookies or brownies then the Thank You tag has baking instructions.

Or something seasonal related?

Or local to where you live or met?

We did cakeballs and they were a huge hit. Most people ate them before they left and the extras were scooped up by those who had already eaten theirs. I have been asked so many times for the recipe for them that I am just going to put it on FB.

We are having a rustic chic themed fall wedding, and we just finished canning peach butter for our favors.  These don’t have the tags and cute ties yet, but here is a picture!  It was very affordable and fairly easy (just a little time consuming).

@jensmit_ua:

LOVE it! I heard of peach butter for the first time this past month. What a cute unique idea! Is it common in the south?

Apple butter is much more common, but peach is Fiance favorite, so we went with that instead.  It is SO GOOD, and so easy!!! Just 4 ingredients.  I had actually never had it before we made it.

Here is the recipe if you want to try it – http://www.food.com/recipe/Peach-Butter-96986

A couple of ideas from recent weddings I’ve been to: candy apples or truffles!

We are doing chocolate covered pretzels and using them as escort cards.

I am getting married in November so I am planning on doing caramel apples. I think we can make them a little bit in advance and they go with the fall season.
