Reader question: Food favors

Reader Jackie had a question about food favors that aren’t necesarily the standard chocolates or sweets.

My question now has to do with wedding favors. My fiance and I are big foodies and would like to incorporate something with food that is reasonably priced. We were going to do chocolates but now we are thinking that we don’t eat sweets that much and it may not represent us well. We like these salts from Pear and Peony but we are hoping to get a couple other ideas to compare it to. Do you have anything in mind?

One idea that I thought could be clever is making mini recipe books with your favorite recipes to give everyone. That way you’re including your love of food and passing along to your friends and family for them to love as well! I imagine them looking sort of like this:

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

    I’m a fan of doing something that either goes with your city, your venue, or your theme. For example – a georgia wedding could have peach jam. A wine country wedding – obviously wines or cheeses. A fall-themed wedding? Pumpkin cookies.

    The newest Martha Stewart Weddings has a cute section on regional food gifts. Here’s the link to it.

    One of the WeddingBee bloggers used Rosemary Sea Salt as favors (adapted from Martha Stewart), using Clear Christmas ornaments as holders.

    Thanks for all the ideas everyone! I have decided to use tea cookies (green tea, chai, and lemon and ginger) at one of my favorite tea sweet shops. They just opened a new store:
