    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?

    sounds like a great idea. you might want to add bottled water and a local snack to the basket when you get there. they really gouge you for bottled water in cabo!

      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. 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!
