Baptismal favors-- could you post a pic of what you gave?

Im trying to find something cute that people wont just toss out to give for the favor.. Our wedding we did stainless steel Heart shape ice cream scoopers and everyone loved them and everyone said they work great.

I LOVE the favors I got. Let me see if I can find a picture online. They just came out - they are Lenox Crosses - that are ornaments.

ETA Pic: Each person only gets one. These are the four that will be given out though.

We gave chocolate truffles in sheer bags. A few people I know gave chocolate lolliipops.

DH's cousin had cookies made with the baby's picture on it.

I don't have a pic but I did M&M's in a clear bag with a ribbon I had make up that said Hailey's Baptism and the date. I bought the breast cancer M&M's from the supermarket since they were light and dark pink. Everyone loved it!

I made votive candles for both kids christenings. I got the glass holders and candles at AC Moore on sale, so it was less than $0.50 for each favor for those, then I made labels on 2" x 4" labels that had a picture of her and said "God Bless Sarah on her Christening Day June 5, 2005" and then I wrapped them in clear cellophane and put a favor bow from AC Moore on them. It's like a rubber band with a ribbon on it.

The hardest part was setting up the labels, and then the most time consuming part was putting the labels on and wrapping them. My mom and I made 30 in like 1 hour or so.

Not the greatest pic but you get the idea:

I don't have a pic, but we did a small bamboo plant. I attached a poem to each.

I did the same thing. There are a ton of Christening molds. Then I wrapped them and tied them with printed ribbon. We got the ribbon printed at part city. It said something like..God Bless Ava Isabella, then I think it had the date too. You can't go wrong with chocolate.

Orginally I wanted to do a plantable orgnament but when I went to go order it took to long. So I opted for a plantable notecard. It is a heart shaped notecard that has wildflower seeds imbeded in it and you plant it. I Also got 3.5" terra cotta pots then put potting soil in celphan bags, tied it and put it in the pot. Then I wrapped the whole thing with ivory tulle and tied it with lavendar ribbon. I am hanging the notecard off of it.

Here's a picture, it's not done yet but you get the idea. I still have to put the label on that says her name and date on them.
(I really hope it doens't look cheesy, I just wanted something different)
