anything edible and I also really liked the wine bottle stopper I got. Nothing engraved with your name or wedding date….As much as I love my friends, I don’t want stuff with their names on it.

I went to a shower where there were all different favors on a favor table.  One of the games at the shower (I think it was trivia about the bride/couple, or maybe bridal bingo) went on until everyone won, and when you won you got to pick your favor / prize.  It was nice that people got to pick something they liked.  There were flower pots, bath products, frames, etc.

We gave locally made gourmet hot fudge sauce for my SIL’s bridal shower. They came in a variety of flavors (mint, peanut butter, raspberry and caramel) and everyone seemed to really like them.

At my shower, my Maid/Matron of Honor gave bath bombs that looked like wedding cupcakes with an engagement ring in the frosting.  She found them online somewhere.  They were really popular and super cute.

i was at a shower where all the bridesmaids and the bride had barbie cakes made. The dress was edible and the top part looked liked a barbie. every girl’s barbie looked like her (hair color, eye color)..then the centerpieces of the tables were bride barbie cakes. And whoever had the sticker underneath their chair got to take it home. I know it’s a favor not everyone got, but it was super cute nonetheless

I won a really cute pad of recipe cards at a shower once. For wedding favors, I’m going with most other answers and saying anything edible always is appreciated. I’m having a small box of truffles tied with a ribbon at each place setting. Hopefully they’ll go home with the guests or be eaten on the spot.

We’re doing a photobooth, and guests can take their pictures home in bookmark sleeve, and a little bag silkscreened with the Liberty Bell (wedding is in Philly) for guests to take home candy from the candy bar. 

I went to a wedding that had lottery scratch offs as gifts. Everyone loved them-especially the guy who $500!!! (of course he donated it to the couple’s honeymoon fund!)

Anything that I can actually use (ie. I got really pretty soap once, and my step-sister had sparkly heart keychains at hers that I loved) or any type of candy – chocolate is always the best. 🙂

The mini cakes that my mom baked for my bridal shower were a huge hit! She used all different cake and bread mixes and baked them in mini aluminium pans and wrapped them up and attached a personalized tea bag to them with ribbon. ETA: The best favor for a wedding/shower is something edible! I’ve received cookies, candy from candy bars, personalized chocolate bars, etc. I did chocolate covered pretzels for my wedding favor.
