Do you or someone in your family have a special cookie recipe? Share it with your family and friends by making your own cookie favors. This is a great way to make your wedding favors personal, and on the bag of your favor tag you can even include the recipe for others to enjoy! (photo borrowed from the Knot.com galleries).
Making your own chocolates is another great favor idea. With so many molds available to choose from, you can easily find something to match your theme or interests. This mold from confectionaryhouse.com is less than $3.00 and has a variety of seashell shapes to make for your beach wedding. Bag it in a cute cellophane pouch and tie with some raffia ribbon and you've got a great favor for a very reasonable price.
