Your family and friend made it a point to celebrate with you on your special day, don’t send them home with a lame wedding favor. You want them to leave your wedding with something special to show your appreciation. Something they’ll actually want and not just throw out a couple of weeks down the road.

Brides not only want a favor that will wow their guests and bring up fun memories, but also something that people can actually use after the event is over. To make sure your wedding favors are both fun, memorable, and useful, we’ve tracked down 10 of the best wedding favors that all of your guests are sure to love.

Cookie Cake Jars

FattyCakesNY Cookie Cake Jars ($60 For 1 Dozen)

Send guests home with a sweet treat like these FattyCake Jars. These personalized 4oz cookie cake jars come in four yummy flavors: Triple Chocolate Sea Salt, PB&J, Chocolate Chip Caramel, and Original. You can even personalize the container with a custom sticker design. Guests won't be able to turn these yummy treats down.


2. Suds 'N Such ($240 for 100)

For brides who want something different, the company also offers novelty soaps. Cute and functional.

Scratch Offs

3. Scratch Offs

Your guests are there to wish you luck--why not do the same for them? "Scratch-offs are just a dollar and someone can win even more.

4. Personalized Sunglasses ($60 for 24)

Sunglasses could not be more perfect as a wedding favor if you're having a summer wedding. The personalized eyewear is fun and practical. Guests will probably even use the glasses as party attire after the day turns to night, says Meghan Brumbley of DC Engaged. "Guests love that 'I wear my sunglasses at night' vibe as the wedding turns to party mode."
