They are really cute! But I can see where it wouldn’t appeal to everyone. I think it’s easier for planning to just have one type of favor for everyone. If there were multiple kinds, what if everyone likes one more than the other? 

Of the favors you mentioned, I think the jam would probably appeal to the most people. The plants would be hard to take home for people traveling a long way.

I think the jars of jam are a great idea and everyone would like them. Most people don’t keep the knick knack favors. I think it’s easier to have one favor across the board also.

Edible, or something like a photobooth. Often “cute” doesn’t get taken home.

The gnomes are cute and will add to your decor, but don’t be disappointed when your guests leave them on the table.  There are many people like me, who simply don’t want another chachka that has to be dusted. I would never display it so why take it home?

I would take home a mini jar of jam or preserves.

They are super cute but I can also see your FI’s side too. Is there anything that is special for you both or a theme you like? Not sure if you’ve checked this out but http://www.weddingstar.com/ could give you a few ideas. We used them and they shipped internationally for us. We kind of went the nic-nak route though and did a salt and pepper shaker that fit together like a puzzle piece. Sounds lame but it was because it was very sentimental for us, the puzzle part, not the S&P shaker. Early in our relationship my DH called me his puzzle piece and it stook. So at the wedding we put out a double frame (the kind that fold up) infront of the favours that said “… and he said I was his puzzle piece” written on one side and “Please take a piece of piece of our love” on the other. Now that I think about it 2 years later it is a little corny but we, but probably more I, found it mushy and cute back then.  

Whatever you get you could wrap it up but whether or not you do I wouldn’t suggest giving them a choice. You’re showing appreciation for their attendance, it’s not a store. It’s cheaper and easier to just get something that could appeal to guys and gals. Not to mention less stressful!

I would leave both a gnome and a seed pack on the table tbh. The jam or potted plant, I would be much more likely to bring home with me.
