I find flower seeds to be something a lot of people enjoy (at least around here, where most people have lawns/yards/somewhere to grow them).

If you want to do something other than tying ribbon to a packet of seeds, you could make biodegradable seed paper. Basically it's homemade paper with seeds embedded/dried into it. Then the recipient just plants the paper. The paper biodegrades and the seeds grow. It's a pretty easy project, and you could write a cute message on the paper.

Another alternative is seeds or a bulb, a decorated flower pot, a baggie of soil, etc. so people can grow something indoors. And rather than flowers, you could make it something edible like herbs or a mini tomato plant.

I rarely keep or use party favors myself, but the one time I did wildflower seeds at a birthday party I had people going around collecting any of the leftovers that others had left behind.

bath bombs are easy to make. I have had them given to me as a favor too.

I'm going to make sugar scrub. Super easy! Pinterest is a neverending source of ideas.

The only favors I have ever "used" were a tree from my sisters wedding and photos from a photo booth that we got a frame for. I have no suggestions If I do, I'll come back and let you know!
