Ideas for DIY video game themed wedding favors?

by DIY wedding planner on December 8, 2011

My fiance and I want to incorporate our passions into our wedding without going overboard, so we thought the favors would be a good place to get a little creative. I’m in school and an aspiring writer, I love to read and it has been a lifelong hobby, so I am going to either pass out poem scrolls, or a short story booklet. However, since this idea will be inexpensive, we’d like to also include something that reflects his passion, so the guests would get two favors. He’s been an avid gamer since at least the age of three, and he is also going to school to be a video game designer. I’d really like to come up with something that will relate to his passion, but I can’t find any ideas anywhere on the web, and neither of us can think of anything. I would kind of like some input from some serious gamers too, I’m thinking maybe stay away from the cutesy approach, and come up with something that has a practical use while playing (like a drink cozy, etc.) I appreciate all serious responses.
the Mario brothers tins sound good, but I’m thinking of something I could make, I’m not really wild about the candies as favors. Thank you for the suggestion though, maybe I could use the tins and put something else in it, but I’m looking for possibly a sewing, clay modeling or other kind of craft.
He’s really big on fps (first person shooters) especially the Call of Duty series. He is also a die-hard Playstation user.

How about the super mario brothers mushroom candy tin? You can find it on amazon. I will see if I can think of anything else. It sounds like a fun idea.
