Opinion on Bird Pouch/Wallet?

I'm looking for some unique, pretty, and ecofriendly little pouches/wallets (the type you'd use in your pocket to just carry a few bucks and id or credit card when you don't want to carry any bags) to give as wedding shower favors, and I ran across this style (handmade from salvaged banners, so it fits my ecofriendly requirement) and would like some opinions. If you were given this at a wedding shower (the wedding uses birds as accents in the theme of peace and love), would you like them? If yes, which color or bird do you like the best, or should I just get a mix of styles and let them pick? I need 20 total.

Thanks in advance for the opinions, I never know if what I like translates to others or not!

These are lovely! I would love getting one as a shower or wedding favor. Hmm... all of the designs are cute. Why not simply choose the one that best goes with your wedding or shower color scheme? Then no one can be disappointed if they don't get the design they want.

Great idea and I think that all freebies should be eco-friendly. I personally would try to find wallets with designs that my friends would be likely to use instead of leaving their gifts in a drawer, therefore I would put a side the theme.

Thanks to all for your feedback!

Lark_lulu: do you think just a solid colored wallet would be a better gift than the bird-themed (since the bird theme really only has to do with the bride/groom and not the bridesmaids after the big day)? The same place has cool bright-colored flat wallets (I have one myself and love it), and I could maybe get these instead, or the mini version to better suit my budget - would you rather see these as gifts? I know these because I have one I use every day, but if there are others out there, please suggest. Heres a pic - I have the blue:

These wallets are beautiful, simple and practical--I personally would use it. I doubt you can go wrong with this choice. ;)

I did make a quick search for you earlier and although I found some very cute wallets, I doubt the design would have been appreciated by all your guests and 20 of them was too expensive.

I would go for the one that would suit your budget more, and if you have extra cash you could personalize it for the shower with items from a craft store.

I like the chipmunk one, myself. I think that if you go with the ones with pictures on them, then a variety is best. However, as LadyLinda pointed out, you run the risk of some people being disappointed if one design is more popular that others. So I'd go with the plain wallets.
