    It probably averaged out to about $2-4 as we did a candy buffet.

    Where’s the $1-$2 range? lol.

    Ours were $1.63. We did those heart-shaped teaspoons but people actually liked ’em, despite the hive’s thumbs down on them.

    Hm, trying to think of how much we definitley are spending per item, but we’re doing honey favors & are spending about $300.00 for 100 honey favors.

    In lieu of favors, we’re donating to the American Cancer Society in honor of my Dad who passed away from cancer when I was a toddler.  We’re not sure how much we’ll be donating yet but it will be at least $200 and we’ve invited 100 so about $2 a person I guess.

    I think I bought too many though.  If I can sell some of the extra, then it’ll be a great deal!

    I hope to only spend between $2-4. I haven’t bought them yet, but I will start looking soon.

    About $0.75 a person.

    Fiance and I went to Ohio State, but now live in California. My mom is making chocolate buckeyes (the Ohio State mascot is the Buckeye), and we are giving everyone a pair of buckeyes from a pair of Buckeyes.

    I bought white truffle boxes, ribbon, and Ohio State stickers. That was about $45. The rest of the cost is my estimation for the chocolates, butter and peanut butter.

    We did cards for our favors.  Our families love them and use them often.  I think it’s a worthwhile investment!

    About 2.50 per favor. I wouldn’t go to a wedding without a gift, and I wouldn’t invite people to a party without giving them a favor for coming. In our generation I think that people understand if you don’t have favors. My grandmother came home from a wedding last year that didn’t have favors and she didn’t really get it, she almost thought it was rude. It’s just one of those etiquette things for me, but I really don’t think it’s about how much they cost. You could do home-made cookies or candies on a very low budget. It’s just the thought that counts, a little way of saying thank-you for making my day a little more special by being here!

    I found cute boxes 6/$1 at the dollar tree.  I bought ribbon’s off of ebay for about $5.  They are the diy bows that you pull and a bow forms.  I am filling the boxes with on sale chocolates.  The purple dove hearts, purple hershey kisses.  I can fit about 5 kisses in each box.  The key is to stuff some colored tissue paper in the box first for filling.  The tissue paper I got was 40 sheets for $1 also at the dollar tree.  The total comes to about a dollar per favor and looks really pretty with the colored bow around the box.
