Gone are the days of predictable wedding favors that guests may remorsefully throw away.

Ditch the cookie cutters, bubbles and peanuts – here are 4 wedding favors your guests will actually enjoy.

Homemade goodies

Are your grandma’s chocolate chip cookies to die for? Does your best friend make the best homemade jam? Consider sharing the love of your favorite treats by giving them as favors. Your guests will love the homemade touch, especially if they can take home the recipe.

Drink koozies

Koozies have come a long way! Giving drink koozies as favors is a clever way to personalize your wedding while keeping your guests’ hands from getting cold while celebrating. Koozies can be styled with your names, wedding date or even a unique saying or hashtag. Guests will think of you with every sip, even after the wedding festivities have ended.

Dancing shoes

When it’s time to hit the dance floor, wedding guests (especially ladies sporting high heels) will appreciate the luxury of slipping into a comfy pair of flip-flops. Extend your wedding colors to these summer essentials or get a variety of colors for fun pops of color. Make sure to order them in various sizes so everyone can rest their tired feet.

Hangover kits

Combine drinks with hours of celebrating and you’re bound to have guests wake up the next day feeling the effects. Help your guests tackle their inevitable hangovers by providing headache remedies such as aspirin, Gatorade, water and crackers.
