Nothing's as sweet as giving a handwritten note to someone you love — so Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie and her husband, political strategist Michael Feldman, incorporated the sentimental gesture into their wedding. The couple gave each of their 80 wedding guests a personalized, handwritten letter as a favor, along with a monogrammed leather luggage tag.

The letters took the couple an entire weekend, before their March 15 wedding, to write, according to People. So if you and your fiance create an awesome playlist, gather up a few delicious snacks and take a few hand stretch breaks, you'll be on the road to giving your guests a truly meaningful gift that can be tailored to your tastes.

If you and your groom love sailing, individual messages in bottles are cute, or the stationery could be the colors of your colleges or your wedding. Keep scrolling for pretty handwritten and typed thank-you favor options and ways to display them.
