Favors for virtual guests

Hello everyone,

My 50 ppl in-person wedding already passed (1/2/21) and I live streamed via FB event page. I have received several cards (with cash) in the mail from my virtual guests which I honestly wasn't expecting. My original plan for my virtual guests were to send a thank you photo magnet in the mail since they didn't receive photo save the date magnets like my in person guests did. But now for the ones who gave me gifts, I feel more is needed, like a favor of some sort.

Any favor ideas or other thoughts about this? fyi- someone told me I cannot mail alcohol however, I never looked into the validity of this.

    I would just mail them thank you cards with a wallet size photo of you and your spouse included.

    No favor necessary. Just a nice personalized thank you note.

    Favors are always optional and people generally toss them. Yes it is true you cannot send alcohol through the mail.

    Favors are always optional, so it's perfectly fine if you don't send any! A had written 'thank you' card is a must though, and should be more than fine to send just those!

    I agree with everyone else that favors aren't necessary. And I highly doubt your friends/family who sent you a gift are expecting a reciprocal gift. All that is needed is a heartfelt thank you card (with or without a photo magnet).
