What's the best wedding favor you received?

Trying to start planning what I'll have as favors... I want it to be useful to the guests. I know not everyone will enjoy it and that I can't please everyone all at once, but I really want to try to have something that they'd use..

    My favorite has been little bottles of wine. I also don't like things I am supposed to keep that are personalized with someone else's name.

    My mother-in-law was very gracious, and had these super cute Gourmet boxes of chocolates made for each place setting...tied in the color ribbon of my girls dresses. They were cute, delicious, and everyone gobbled them UP!!! We also had an open air photo booth where guets could have as many 4×6 pictures printed right on the spot and we had a cute little custom logo made that went in the corner...both were a great success! :+)

    @Raven Maybe consider actually feeding guests instead of giving them fans, waterbottles, wine, and welcome bags. All of those items aren't necessities. Food is a necessity.

    ETA:

    @OP My favorite has been coffee beans, whole leaf tea, and personalized wine

    All our favors are something edible here, so I like the tasty ones Smiley smile We use jordan almonds traditionally and I am not a huge fan of them (I am also quite fond of my teeth), so I appreciate if they are good quality, or a chocolate alternative instead.

    Sometimes people add a small memento to go with the candy, so far my favourite has been a glass, teardrop-shaped tree ornament, I still have it. Anything else I have lost or thrown away.

    We didn't actually receive a favor. Instead the bride and groom gave a donation to one of their favorite charity in the guest names.

    I have received a glass olive oil bottle and a candle in a nice holder, ironically I still have and use both. I went to another wedding and received nothing. I have my heart set on mini succulents, probably the ONLY constant thing in my planning. Lol

    Showing my age here but but cousin gave out CDs with a customized playlist. There were some great songs on the CD and I enjoyed listening to it in my car. Otherwise Edible favors have always been enjoyed.
