    While I think the toothbrush/shampoo idea is SUPER cute, I think those would be the first tossed.

    I debated doing lotto cards – so that’s my #1 pick! 🙂

    The mason jar is cute too – but, the time and expense compared to the lotto cards, seems to put it in 2nd place.

    I love food!

    I wouldn’t use a toothbrush with someone elses name or date printed on it. I’d probably throw that away.

    @tmg128:

     

    Just wondering if there was a budget/reasons other than them being useful?

     

    Maybe matchbooks?

    I don’t think people really use matchbooks anymore……and I was at a wedding where lotto tickets were given out, and many people were commenting on how ‘tacky’ it was.  I don’t agree, but it was opinion shared by many at my table.  (They must have lost….heheheh)

    A homemade treat is much more elegant.  I understand the toothbrush and shampoo idea.  It is cute, but most people will probably toss it.  A lottery ticker is just not elegant and tacky may come to a lot of minds even though it could be valuable,

    I love the toothbrush and shampoo idea… I am a dental hygienist as well so I might be a little bias, but I think it is a super cute idea and it tells a little something about you guys..  I don’t think anyone is going to throw out a free toothbrush, you can never have enough of those.. 🙂

    I think the lotto ticket is a fun idea, but I’d say you should only do it if it could somehow relate to your theme/personality/etc. Like if it was a carnival wedding or if you both love to go to Vegas or something.

    But then again, I could just see the mason jars being dropped in the parking lot, leaving glass all over. Maybe I’m just a pessimist.

    At first I was confused by the “tooth brush and shampoo” choice for the poll.  I was like why would they give out toiletries as a favor?!  But after reading your reasoning, I think it’s a really cute idea.  However, I agree with PP that they are likely to be tossed. I like the mason jar of goodies idea!

    I’m not a huge fan of the lottery ticket. If I was given a lottery ticket as a favor I would give it to someone else or just leave it at the table, sorry.

    But on the other hand I think the toothbrush/shampoo idea is really cute. Save your money and don’t engrave the tooth brush. Just put both of them in a little bag, tie a ribbon and add a little card with a cute saying and explaining why you are giving these items. You can also give a toothbrush and a comb, you may be able to save money if you give one of those black ones.
