Military Wedding Favors

Hi!!! So my husband and I are having our "vow renewal" this summer and I am just wondering what you all used for wedding favors. I'd like something military/air force related so any ideas would be appreciated!!! Thanks! :):):)

    One of the girls on another board married a pilot (commercial, not military) and they gave little plastic airplanes that were a HUGE hit!  She had them throw them in the air for the exit, if I remember, but a lot of people were stuffing extras in their bags.

    She also had a airplane charm on her garter, which I thought was a cute way to incorporate the theme subtly.

    ETA: They were apparently styrofoam planes, and she ordered them from a website.  I'd check out Oriental Trading to start.

    The planes are a cute idea, so you could get something related your FI's branch.  I don't know many other ideas.  You could do a regular favor and have a tag or something on it saying TY, and you could put the Air Force logo on it.

    For the kids?  Haha I would be putting those for everyone.  And I would have to order twice as much as I needed since I would most likely eat as many as I put out.

    You can do blue and white M&M's with the AF logo on them.
