Though it may be difficult to find something everyone will appreciate, don't worry! Take a look at these seven favors that will surely get two thumbs up from your guests.

Since destination weddings are all too common nowadays, make yours stand out by giving away something local to the area. Talk to a local supplier about buying in bulk and in return they might help you out with personalized packaging that fits the occasion.
5. Hand Sanitizers

We all grew up being reminded to wash our hands before meals, but believe it or not, some adults actually still forget! Do your guests a favor and offer them a small bottle of hand sanitizer before the reception begins. For a nice touch, make the packaging fit your wedding.

We saved the best for last! Donut walls are all the rage this year in wedding styling and it’s highly likely that they will stay on trend because who doesn't love a good donut?
All you need is a pegboard, a variety of donuts, lots of creativity, and voila – you have yourself a photo wall and giveaway table. Keep your donut variants diverse– the children will want donuts with colorful frosting while the minimalists will look for the simple, sugar-glazed ones. You can even provide gluten-free or sugar-free donuts for guests who have dietary restrictions.
We can almost guarantee that having a donut wall at your wedding will not only please your guests, but will also leave a lasting impression!
We hope you enjoyed these ideas for wonderful wedding favors that your guests will actually want to take home! Click here to check out our beautiful collection of vintage key bottle openers.
