We are having an outdoor ceremony in MA in Nov so I found some really nice (and cheap) fleece blankets on Ebay. We are wrapping a ribbon around those and attaching a wooden ornament to commemorate since it close to December. We are putting them in a box with a sign that says 'to have and to hold and in case you get cold'.
Also we are supplying all the alcohol and cups and what not. We found nice wine glasses (12 for 9.99) and putting a wooden name tag on them and a sign that says 'take a glass we've made it your own and at the end of the night take it home' or something like that
We're doing Ferreror Rocher for the adults and M&M's customized with our colors for the kids in clear boxes and S'mores so far. I want to have something they can keep, so that's what I'm still looking into. Favors aren't exactly needed if you feel that you don't want them or can't fit them into your budget. If you're having centerpieces, those can double as your favors.

We are doing wedding favors. I got small jars which we will fill up with personalized m&ms and probably have a thank you tag on it with our name and date.
I'm going to be helping my grandma make these cream cheese mints that she makes for EVERY family function. We'll be making enough for everyone to have about 5-10 (haven't decided) and putting them in cute bags!
My recommendation is to do something edible! To be completely honest with you, I usually end up throwing away wedding favors that are not edible. However, edible favors are always sincerely appreciated! I've seen regular cookies, themed cookies, bags of chocolate, mini jars of honey, mints, customized M&Ms, candy bars, donut walls with little baggies to take them with, etc. Edible favors are super popular with everyone!
I have 12 nieces and nephews under the age of 13 that are coming to our wedding. I am making them a gift bag with crayons, coloring pages and some other small things so they can have something to do if they want during the reception. I am still trying to figure out what to do for the adults.
We aren’t doing favors, but we are doing welcome bags for those staying at the resort which will include an airplane bottle of vodka + a single serving bottle of Bloody Mary mix, mini water, and a little note from us thanking them for attending and restaurant recommendations
My bridesmaids and I will actually be having a special day to do home made candles which will be super fun and affordable to make. The fun part will be them choosing their own scents and so far the testers smell delicious for our guest at the wedding. In each plate I am having made some rose gold mirror coasters with a white silhouette of the world with their names on it since we love to travel and my Fiancé is currently still serving in the military and he is always traveling so we figured this would fit great as a favor to take home. SO far we feel that might be a bit expensive so a more affordable route might be for us to give a larger coaster with the family name of each guest party. For the children we are creating some small goodie bags with a coloring book customized with our story up until our wedding day( free on Pinterest & .10 cents a page printable at staples) to keep them occupied. I am also ordering some freshly home made soaps for the bridal shower with some tea bags to fit the theme.
I would advise that if you choose to do a favor pick something unique to you and your fiancé that your guest will know hey that is so them and they can share that with them as they take it home. I opted out from doing any foods or desserts since we will be having a dessert wall and S'mores stations around the venue for our guest. I just figured that it would be too much sweets. I also like the idea of hand sanitizers with a custom label (Etsy) of your names and date fit with the theme of your invitations or masks due to Covid-19 and also not sure when your wedding is set. best of luck and congratulations
I wanted to give things people would use. My MatronOH's husband has his own product manufacturing company, so he provided bottles of hand soap (I chose the lavender scent) and I designed a label with our themed 'infinity symbol" our names and wedding date to put on them. In addition, I got stainless steel wine corks with a heart on top and glass coasters with letters. L.O.V.E.
It could be years from our wedding, but whenever they pull out those coasters or use the wine cork, they'll be reminded of our special day. : )
We're just doing little bags of Hershey kisses and I'm making tags that say "Hugs and Kisses from the new Mr. and Mrs."
Simple, inexpensive, and I doubt anyone at our wedding would turn down chocolate. I've been to SO MANY weddings where the favors were things I would NEVER use. I swear, if I get one more dang candle with their names on it! I have ALWAYS appreciated favors that I could eat and therefore didn't go to waste- and, honestly, I would assume they would almost ALWAYS be cheaper anyway!
