Hello Everyone! I guess I'll get right to it... for our favors my future mother-in-law bought us a bunch of those bride/groom boxes. For our "bride" favors we are making homemade vanilla extract. My thinking is that it is something I have been making for a long time so I know the process, and it is something that will actually get used. However, I am not so sure of what to put in the "groom" box.
We are trying to make the favors as inexpensive as possible. The vanillas will end up costing about $40 packaged, so we would like to keep the groom's favor at about 1/2 that cost. I was thinking of going with a sweet and spicy theme? Possibly a BBQ rub of some sort? I could also do coffee beans, but I would wonder how many people would really use that? Any advice would be great!
....also, I am reading that many people are against "couple" favors. I guess this would technically qualify, but I am thinking it is fine since both people actually get something. Plus, all but two people are bringing a guest.
