They're a lot of fun but yes, they're time consuming. A suggestion I'd have for those not staying at the resort would be to flat rate ship (since it's actually pretty affordable now - only about $5 for a decent sized box w/in the US). You could send those families their goods (possibly not everything you'd include in the bags you'll be bringing with you for those staying at the hotel if it doesn't all fit), but print out the same material if you're creating a brochure w/ the itinerary, details on the location, etc for it to arrive before they leave? Just a thought and then that way you aren't worrying about saving bags in your room or with the concierge for those who won't be at your hotel. That way, everyone would still be included

Here is my problem, we have about 3 or 4 families staying at an outside resort (annoying I know) but I don't want them to feel excluded if they don't get an OOT bag. I have no way of getting in touch with the resort before hand and don't feel like I should take the trouble to get their bags to the resort since they aren't staying at our resort. But I want to do something nice for everyone...
Any thoughts or ideas
