We are staying at an AI, and so one of my ideas was to treat and/or organize an "excursion" one day for all of our guests. Of course, FI thinks that paying for everyone to go on an excursion (like a trip to see the ruins, snorkeling, etc.) would bee too expensive. <sigh> But there are some excursions I guess that are free to all guests of our hotel. I'm just worried about people who might choose to stay off the property, whether they can come, or whether it will be at an additional cost. So I DID think about giving them an "experience" as our "gift"... just not sure how it would work out. And FI still shot it down!
What can I say. I'm the spender, he's the saver.
I will take someone else's suggestion and research the costs of all my ideas, so i can tell him how much it will cost us per person to do each thing. Hopefully he WILL let me give our guests SOMEthing.

I recently saw some paper bag OOT bags on this site and they were really cute because they used threir wedding logo so it amde it look pretty nice. I think I may do that becuase paperbags are probably cheaper.

Travel cups for $1 each from Target
Purell hand sanitizer 1 penny each from Staples
Nail Polish remover single packs (free)
Soap that I made probably ended up costing about 25-50 cents each (Bought the kit and molds from Micheals with 40% off coupons)
Flipflops $1 each from Target
Sunscreen for about 75 cents each
After Sun lotion for about 75 cents each
I bought the two above in large bottles then bought small individual plastic bottles for 50 cents each from Target and filled them up.
I'm also in the process of making a welcome brochure on vistaprint Free of charge
I plan on filling them up with some medication and snacks too.
And... If the vendor pulls through for us we will include personalized beach towels which will be around $10 each. These are the ONLY thing I really wanted to give my guests even before the idea of an OOT bag came to mind.
We are only having around 10 guests so this has been a super cheap product for us.
Oh yeah and my actual bags are the cute straw Target bags you see all over the forum with the addition of a cute ribbon tied on each.

I spoke about it with my friend who said she had been to a wedding in Cuba and the bride was from Canada. They did OOT bags and alth it was nice she didn't see the point lol (it may be a british thing lol) so that convinced me
But I agree you could do it cheap if you shop about
