On the hunt for the perfect wedding favors

My fiance Keith and I keep discussing wedding favors and what we think may be a nice one to give at our own wedding.

We have been to multiple weddings this year, and a popular wedding favor at many of them were beer koozies. I think it's a nice favor to give guests because it really does come in handy. You can also get creative with these by incorporating your wedding colors or theme. Couples usually include their names, the date and then some sort of cute saying. A few I have seen are "Eat, drink, and be married" and "To have and to hold, and to keep your beer cold."   

Other popular ideas are edible items. People like to give out treats for people to enjoy maybe later that night or possibly later in the week. Some edible favors I have seen in recent weddings were Berger cookies at Keith's brother's wedding, "Sam and Brent" cookies at that couple's reception, and Hershey Kisses.  

We are not sure if we are going to follow one of these practical trends or try and find something new that we haven't seen before. Either way my goal is to find something that will be used and not just thrown away.

If you have unique ideas for guest favors, let me know!
