    Go the magnet route, I received a beautiful magnet from a wedding a few years back and it’s still on our fridge.

    Are they Jordan almonds? I’m giving some out as well, because Fiance is Italian. On another thread, bees told me that the LOVE Jordan almonds!

    @Chrysoberyl:  if its a traditional thing I would leave them exactly as they are. Don’t let the favor craziness get to you!

    I don’t hate them nor do I think they are ugly, but that being said I would still throw it away and magnet or not! I do not collect magnets and do not like collecting trinkets of any type and I don’t like jordan almonds!

    I am a fan of the no favour wedding! Give me food, booze and a good DJ and I happy. I don’t need a loot bag to take home!

    @Chrysoberyl:  I don’t know what those are. Are they those almonds? To be honest, I generally do not keep wedding favours. I like getting truffles or little boxes of candy as a favour though. I’m not sure I’d put all kinds of work and effort into something at least some people won’t keep. They are very pretty, but I wouldn’t have any use for it (I hate dust collectors).

    ETA: I have a stainless steel fridge, so I also don’t use magnets. I think a lot of homes have stainless steel appliances these days.

    @Chrysoberyl:  Yucky :- I know a lot of people who don’t like those. I love candy, but I don’t consider those candy. I would save the money and get something extra for the wedding that you actually want.

    I always prefer a favor having your names and date, that would make be more inclined to keep it than the magnet. I’m also one who always keeps trinkets, and I love that it is a part of your cultural tradition.

    They’re definitely not stupid. I love That it’s a traditional thing I would keep them as is.

    @Chrysoberyl:  I think if it’s traditional to have jordan almonds, you should. This is definitely the cutest presentation of them I’ve ever seen! Are the flower things traditional, too? I’ve only seen little bags or tiny boxes filled with almonds. I would want to keep this, but wouldn’t know what to do with it unless it was a magnet. If you wanted to add your name/date (which I know the Hive HATES, but I think it makes sense if you’re giving something that’s common) you could have custom ribbon made. You could then glue it between the flower and the magnet so it sticks out. Kind of like this (only smaller):
