We splurged a little and bought our guests coffee to take home (small 2oz bags) for $4 each. Also a big hit!

That's great to know, Jenn. I didn't plan on doing shirts, but if I see cute ones at that great price, I may change my mind once I'm there.

Lizz - I have no idea the name of the stores, but we saw that price in Mo Bay at a few places and in Negril. I'm sure its the same in OR :)

here is what we included (I think this is everything...):
welcome letter
dove chocolates
alka-seltzer
crystal light individual flavor packets (hotel gives bottled water in every room)
emergen-c (energy/immune booster)
custom bookmark
chap stick
sunscreen (little travel tube from target $1)
pack of eclipse gum
travel candle and matches
pashmina for the ladies
cigar for the men

bolded items are the ones that people commented on the most. Pashminas were a very big hit. I bought three colors and let the ladies choose their own.
Bre, I love the simple paper bags! I saw someone else on here use them for her OOT bags and it looked really classy, honestly, I wouldnt reuse a bag with someone's wedding info on it either! If I had a big wedding I would use really nice brown shopping bags. But I am doing nylon bags from LLBean with each couple's initials monogrammed on it.

The main thing my guests used were the travel mugs (every day at the pool), the bag itself to carry things down to the pool and beach, the first aid kit (unfortunately LOL), and the guys had a ball playing with the frisbees I got, oh and the Shout wipes got used quite a bit aswell.

 

My bags included:

travel mugs

semi-homemade first aide kit

frisbee

lotion

travel scope

travel toothpaste

shout wipes

kleenex

 

I think that is it...

Ok... I just thought of another thing my guests used... we made CD's with some island music. Every room at our hotel had a CD player, and everyone loved them!

For any Canadians out there...if you look in the summer time, Superstores carry travel mugs for $1.00. Just an FYI.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
