Can a Wedding Gift be thoughtful and fun at the same time? Absolutely! there are many ways to make your gifts fun and unique to make your very own personal statement in a unique way.

To choose a perfect Wedding Favors for your guests along with all the intricacies of wedding planning is a daunting task for any bride to be. Normally a variety of favors ranging from expensive ones to the not so expensive ones are gifted to the guests at the wedding which are more or less in the same category. One of the ways to be different and not a cookie cutter gift giver is to present a fun wedding favor. A fun wedding gift can be economical and at the same time make a unique statement which will bring a smile to your guests face.

A fun wedding gift can be something personalized to suite a particular personality which would be not only thoughtful and considerate on your part but will make your guest feel very special and honored to be the recipient of a gift full of love and thoughtfulness.

A keepsake or a memory can be turned into a fun gift by presenting it in a unique manner, for instance for the gift to be a keepsake and remembered for a log time to come, it can be something that constitutes an emotional bond between the giver and the recipient. For example a wedding gift can be an intricate or a simple puzzle created out of Photographs or old cherished memories which will not only create suspense and wonderment but also a special emotional bond between the giver and the receiver.

The wedding favor should be given keeping in mind the nature of the person, supposing your recipient is a Casanova you could gift him a puzzle with a picture of Pamela Anderson or Eva Longoria. You can be sure he would be up all night to make sure he got the puzzle right. If its a female recipient she may find keen interest in Brad Pitt and you could always get a puzzle that could be worth solving for that particular personality. Children can also be given something related to their favorite cartoon or even a picture of their parents. To assist you in personalizing your gift you could take a picture of them or even hire someone to make it more fun.

Fun is also a personal matter. What is funny to you may not be funny to others. Everybody perceives fun in a different way. Hence, while selecting the fun wedding favors, keep in mind if there is any element that may hurt someones feelings. Try to be non controversial too. There are many ways to give customized t-shirts with your own images and wordings without being controversial or offensive.

If you are expecting too many guests, you may not be able to customize the wedding favors. You may group them in to different categories- Boys, girls, men, women, elders etc . For example it could be a simple bottle of bubbles for the kids and some do-it-yourself kits for boys. All age groups may enjoy a Frisbee with the picture of a bride & groom!

Eva Longoria , The Desperate Housewives actress and Tony Parker , basketball ace gave bags containing Van Cleef & Arpels bracelets and a stash of make-up worth $700 each to their guests. While the guests enjoyed, many people commented that they got them free from the companies that they sponsored. It is important to give some thing, no matter howe inexpensive or little it might seem from your own money, so that people appreciate the fact that you really care for their feelings. For instance Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's wedding favors were a silver Tiffany clock engraved with "A Moment in Time, June 25, 2006 - Nicole and Keith" which was very much appreciated by the guests.

You may find some items in stores dealing with magic which may be suitable for giving as fun wedding favor. Many online and offline retailers offer only fun wedding favors and gifts. You may look for any funny item that you feel is suitable to be given as a wedding favor. Check your budget to see weather you can customize or personalize the gifts that you buy for your guests as personalization is really not all that expensive these days.

The advantage of a fun wedding favor is not only the fun part but also posterity, your guests will remembered you and your event for a long time because the gift they received was really fun. The idea behind all gifts is to make sure that your guests feel appreciated and to show your respect and love and also that they have a good time at your big event or special occasion. While people tend to forget the wedding favors received at someones wedding, they are likely to remember the fun part of the wedding favors for a long time. It does not matter how expensive or inexpensive the gift is, it does however matter how creative and funny this wedding favor is.
