Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event that's meant to be remembered, and one way to make sure that your guests recall your special day is to gift them with keepsakes that they can take home after all the festivities. Enter the question: what exactly should you give? While there are tons of wedding giveaway options available, one thing that you should remember is to choose souvenirs that are not just meant for decorative purposes. By that, we mean things that are useful and won't simply end up accummulating dust on your guests' shelves or getting thrown away.
That said, here are nine useful and practical giveaway ideas that your guests will surely love!

They have tons of health benefits and can last a pretty long time, making them a more practical choice compared to small, scented souvenirs that would probably just end up untouched.
