OOT bag contents - **Master List of Possible Items**

Recommended Posts


Good morning


Dear readers everything will depend of destination weddings because it is a gift and is for remembrance then we want the guests to watch the gift at home, remember the wonderful trip to the wedding theme. So it is best to find gifts on wedding destination. gifts that speak of their culture and show their landscapes. I am a specialist in souvenirs in my country here in Punta Cana, and I can say is give something unique, every country has charm and a culture to remember. Are very fashionable autochthonous gifts at weddings. if you come here to punta cana, if you need help let me know please.




Best Regards

I agree, it would be nice to match the gift to the destination. My wedding will be in Bermuda, and Bermuda is famous for their pink sand. I plan on giving everyone a small empty jar to bring some same back with them.

I would love to purchase items that are traditional to the area of Riviera Maya, Mexico…but we are hesitant to go off the resort, and we figure anything that is for sale ON the resort will be much more expensive. Anyone have experience going off the resort and buying cheap items in town?

I loved reading all of the posts! Whew, just finished all 77 pages!


I also "borrowed" Nadika's signature! Hope that's okay, Nadika! I saw your quote and I fell in love with it so much!


Here's my tentative list:


1) Some kind of travel mug

2) "Medicine" kit:

    a) chewable pepto-bismol tablets

    B) OFF wipes

    c) advil

    d) powdered gatorade mix

    e) mints / gum (whichever is cheaper)

3) Phone ziplock waterproof bags

4) 50 Waxations Citronella Outdoor Tealight Candles for $8.99 (one or two per bag) on Amazon!

5) Clorox Disinfecting Wipes Fresh Scent (24 packs of 9 sheets, $26.52 for 24 packs on Amazon!)

6) Itinerary / Schedule of Group Activities (this will also be emailed to them in a Google Doodle so we can see who wants to do what)

7) List of possible activities on and off-site (may combine with number 6?)

8) List of English-Spanish-Chinese basic phrases

9) Who's who guest list

10)Mosquito / bug repellant bracelets



1) Lint Roller for $1 a piece?

2) Either Pashimas or Beach Dress Wraps (pashimas are $3.95 or $4.60 a piece, beach dress wraps are $3.30 or $2.523 a piece)

3) Powdered detergent in case they get a stain?

4) Powdered dish detergent to wash out the cups?

5) Canvas bags (have to see if I can personalize or not... want a good price, but I don't want them to bleed through)


Any thoughts guys? :)

Hi guys!


I just bought my OOT bags today! From Barnes and Noble - They were $2 ($1.80 with 10% discount) reduced from $19.95!


I tried inserting this picture of the bags - they are super fab! Check a Barnes and Noble near you to see if you can get them for $2!!

What I ended up putting in my bag:


- Canvas bag 

- Tumblers 

- Advil packets

- Rolaids - this was well used and much appreciated 

- Bug wipes - (Not well used, but would still put them in) 

- johnson & johnson First Aid box - people ended up using the box portion as a case for their room keys/money for tips/random objects. 

- Aloe - Funny enough, I was the one who needed it.

- waterproof Phone cases -

- Turkish towels - (I had been on the fence about this, but everyone used them and loved them) 

- Beach balls, but I wish I had actually done inflatable doodles instead, these - https://www.amazon.com/Swimline-Doodles-Inflatable-Noodle-Float/dp/B0037TSTUO

- altoids

- Tide wipes


I had ordered playing cards, but due to a snow storm, they never arrived. I wish I had put in chapsticks, but mostly because I forgot my chapstick at home.

Hey There!


I’m getting married on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico in less than a month! This thread has been super helpful in figuring out my OOT bags, and most of the things in my bag other people have already mentioned. So, I thought I’d share the unique things I’ve found!!!





  • We’re also going to include a local mango or coconut juice and a mini bottle of rum in each bag to add some island flair!

I have seen every one of the rundowns and attempt to record every one of the bits from each pack that I think I require, however it beyond any doubt is pleasant to see everything in one place!

Hi all - we just got back from our wedding and did OOT gift bag​s, which were a big hit.  Here is what I did:


​Bags - we did these eco friendly coffee sack bags and I love the way they turned out.  We just put a palm tree/beach graphic on the front and the location of the wedding on the side.  No names or dates because we didn't think people would want to use them with our names on them.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1353895917


​Cups - These also turned out great but weren't used a lot at the resort.  For some reason, at my resort, no one else was using their own cups, so I think my guests were hesitant to do so.  Hopefully they use them at home!  We did put our names on these and the koozies below.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345007866


​Can koozies - like the cups, these weren't used very much, but we got a lot of compliments on them.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345924990


​Hangover kit bags filled with bandaids, advil, pepto bismol and Zantac.  Bag purchased on Etsy - https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1353895923, contents purchased on Amazon.  


​Playing cards


​Snacks - some purchased on Amazon, some purchased at Costco - Nuts & seeds, breakfast bars, fruit snacks, Goldfish


​I also got fans from Etsy for the ceremony, but we didn't end up needing them because it was breezy so no one was really hot.  https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1345007868


We put them all together at the resort and the front desk handed them out as people checked in for no additional charge.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
