Looking online and I can find 1oz flip top clear bottles for really cheap, buy bulk hand sanitizer (whatever scent I want or multiple scents) and print sticker labels or attach tags with some cute note of thanks all for a deal. Is this stupid or worth all the time it will take? Would they prefer an edible favor? I figured ppl would stick this in their pocket or purse, and if not, my mom can collect the left-behinds and I could take them to my classroom for all the kid germs I come in contact with daily.

i have never heard of hand sanitizer as a favour before. is there a reason you would choose this? does this reflect you and your fi? it’s like giving someone a pack of bandaids. not sure how guests would interpret that.

@mypinkshoes: I kind of agree. It’s definitely not the kind of cute favor that would normally come to mind. If you guys have some neat way to tie-in sanitizer to your relationship or wedding, it might be okay, otherwise I would skip it.

Definately more practical than romantic, but I kind of like that. It’s definately unusual, but I thnk it could work. Likely some people would think it’s odd, but I think most would thinking it’s nice and actually something they will use. As opposed to the vast majority of favors. You could come up with a little saying like “Keep your memories, lose the germs!”

i’ve been to a baby shower where we got little bottles of santizier and i really enjoyed it- i keep it in my purse and use it all the time.
i just feel like its a little too random for a wedding…

kinda weird for a wedding favor, but I would probably actually keep and use it!

Although I would definitely use it, I feel like it’s just too out there. Plus, some hand sanitizers (usually the cheap ones) leave your hands feeling really sticky and I hate using them.

I agree with PP’s that is seems a little random. Are you by nature a germophobe and everyone is aware so they will get it? If so then it makes sense but still seems a little random.
We did 2 flavors of lip balm, they were labeled.”For future kisses from the Mr. & Mrs. Our names and our wedding date). They were a huge hit and people still talk about them and ask if we have more. LOL They were super cheap too. If your interested let me know and I will let you know where they came from.

I agree, it’s weird for a wedding favor. It would be cute for the shower, maybe…but I’d skip it for the wedding.

I like the practicality and the outside-of-the-boxness. I have 2 big concerns.
1) Sometimes sanitizer scents can be overpowering. I’ve tossed bottles because of this. And this can be a pretty individual thing.
2) If enough people think it’s wierd… you might end up with a ton of leftover sanitizer.

totally useful! and funny, espcially if you are in a medical/epidemiology related field.
Also great that any leftovers can still be used (by you, or you can donate them). Makes them a lot less wasteful than most favors.

Don’t really understand it…in an Out of Town bag, sure, but on its own as your only favour? I would rather see something either personal for the couple (for example, this might be OK if you were both nurses/medical professional), something romantic, or something edible. But hand sanitizer in my view would be kind of silly.

I agree, it’s a bit odd and I would definitely leave it behind. I never use sanitizer.

I think it’s a good favor, but I prefer useful things. If I get an edible or useful favor, I take it with me. If it’s a sit-around trinket of some sort, I either leave it or donate it to Goodwill shortly after. I would like to receive hand sanitizer as a favor, so I say go for it.
