I already have a lot of key chains and I’d probably forget about planting the seeds.

I’d love the magnet though, can always use more. Also, the jelly is a good idea, because edible favors seem to be the most popular.

I think the idea of favors are cute, but in reality unless they’re edible, sometimes they can be a complete wash. In the multiple weddings I’ve attended over the years, I think the only ones I’ve ever taken were the ones I ate while I was sitting there. lol. I think the favors you picked out play right into your theme but don’t be surprised if you have some left over from the wedding. All that being said, they look really cute!

The corks?  no. don’t do those, why would i have a cork magnet on my fridge?  Or on my key chain? they just say the wine maker and that’s it. 

People don’t want to carry things home.

I would probably take everything intending to actually use them, but in honesty, I’d end up throwing away the keychain unused. I’d probably put the magnets on the fridge and use them, but they’d be some of the first to go if the fridge got cluttered. The seeds… I’d intend to plant them and I’d actually be really excited about them, but I’d never get around to it. I’d find them in 2 years, regret having not planted them, and throw them away. The jelly… I’d eat that. I’d eat that right up as long as the flavor was one I like.

@gorusticorgohome: Honestly, I think you are going a little too overboard on the favors. If you want to cut your budget down, you could easily get one favor per person. Like other PP’s have said, edible favors are usually the most practical and preferred.

I like the seeds, I wouldn’t use the magnet or the key chain.

@gorusticorgohome:  I like the seeds and the jam because I think they are super cute and original and you can actually do something with them and enjoy them later. The magnet isn’t awful and I’d slap it up on my fridge, but it wouldn’t wow me or really impress me. The keychain is my least favorite but it probably is a matter of personal taste. I just don’t care for the look of the keychain, I wouldn’t use it and it would probably just end up in a drawer somewhere. I do think it’s awesome that you have a variety though, because everyone is bound to find at least one that they like, and can trade around if need be 🙂

I like both the magnets and seeds!

Not sure about keychains as I get them from coworkers who travel often.

The only thing I would use would be the jelly. The keychain, magnet, and seeds are too imposing. I personally don’t want to be given something that I have to use or see on a daily basis unless I love it.

ETA: And I love food, so any food favor gets a thumbs up from me.
