My Wedding Door Gifts

I'm confused of what to give to the guests & wheather i should buy ready made door gifts or make it on my own?I'm thinking of making it by myself as i really really want to cut my budget BUT i don't know what are the suitable things to give?I've surveyed a few items at various wedding stop center including mydin shopping complex BUT it is too pricey.I don't think i can afford it as our budget was so limited.
BUT today,i've found an easy & cheap way to wrap the gifts.I don't know wheather other people here in malaysia made it or not but for me,it's quite interesting & different.

Pumpkin Treat Bags How-To
Fill orange mini craft bags with candy. Twist the top of the bag up into a stem. Pull floral tape off roll and stretch it so it becomes sticky. Wrap floral tape around stem, starting at the top and moving downward. Rip off take, leaving 3 to 4 extra inches hanging on the bottom. Twist extra tape into tendril, wrapping it around finger until it curls.
