Hotel room baskets

Recommended Posts

Since there will only be 8 of us total going to Cabo for our vow renewal, I decided instead of doing OOT bags/totes, I am going to make up small baskets for the rooms and they will have all different travel size items.

 

I bought from Target today:

Tylenol EX-8 count

Lip Balm-.62/piece

Shampoo

Hand Sanitizer

Toilet seat covers(you never know when you will need them)

Lotions

Toothpaste

First Aid Kits(.99)

Rolaids

 

I can't think of anything else off the top of my head. What do you think of a basket full of goodies?

I love the idea of baskets in the rooms! One question - how are you going to get the baskets to Cabo? Are you going to mail them ahead of time?

Sounds like a great idea! I've been working on my OOT bags.

 

So far I have:

 

Spanish Book for Dummies- $1 Target

First Aid Kits- Dollar Tree

SPF 30 lip balm- Dollar Tree

I found margarita and pina coloda body butter at Dollar Tree and they actually smell good!

Avon Aloe Vera- Ebay

I bought cups from Target at $.40 a piece and decorated them- I used a paint pen to write their names and used decal rub ons of various beachy stuff (got this idea from Morgan)

 

I still need to get travel meds and may add a few more small things.

 

It's so fun buying all the goodies!

Maura-I was thinking of water when I got there too. Hopefully there will be something near by to purchase them.

 

Amanda, I havn't thought of that yet. smile120.gif The thought came to me while I was at Target. If I can find something, maybe not a basket, but something along those lines. I will let you know.

 

Denise-Thanks about the soap and cards would be a good thing to add.

 

By the time I get through, I may need to get bags, lol. I will need to look for some type of basket.

I am thinking about checking with my WC and see if she can pick up 4 baskets for me. The reason I thought about baskets, is that all of us are couples, so to speak, but only 2 of the 4 couples will be sharing a room. Dh and myself, my nephew and his ex-wife. The other 2 couples are my son and daughter (21 and 19) and thier girlfriend/boyfriend. Since my daughter and her boyfriend are 19 and 18, obviosly, I don't want them sharing a room, so son's gf and my daughter will be sharing a room and my son and daughter's bf will be sharing a room. Hence, baskets instead of bags. If any of that makes any sense. LOL

I found them in the dollar section at Target about 2 months ago. You should call the nearest Target and ask if they still have some. Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
