My bags had a lot of different stuff in them. The things that people used most and were really excited for were:
The Find a Word Puzzles/ Sodoku books~ A Big Hit!
Decks of cards (a last minute addition that I'm glad I put in)~ it was cloudy for several days and these came in handy
First Aid Kits~ the bandaids were good for people who got blisters
and the Pepto bismol tablets and Motrin
The things that weren't used that I could've done without were:
The sunscreen with spf 30~ everyone knew they were heading somewhere sunny and packed their own
Mini beach balls~ I didn't see one of these used except by my FI who kept beaning me in the head and finding it hilarious! lol
Spanish for Dummies books~ as cute as they were no one read them
OFF wipes~ I never saw a bug and no one mentioned anything about them
I also would've added twice as many Motrins to the bags. I put in the 99 cent packs that had a total of 6 tablets in them. People used them and probably could've used more.

Besides being free, it also just keys in on the main phrases. But again the best part, it's free and ya can't beat that!!!
I wanted to get the book at target but they are sold out ;(.

Regarding what kind of bags to get for guys vs gals. Females are getting cute totes either from cheap totes or oriental trading. Either Hibiscus flower ones or solid color orange or green (wedding colors). The guys are getting the drawstring backpacks (like nike makes) I found them on a few sites that I didn't bookmark but I'll prolly go with the ones I found on ebay. I was planning on putting our logos on bags (ironed on) but now I think we'll just have the logos printed on a thick card (like maybe vistaprints business cards or something) and hang them on the bags so our guest can take them off if they want and can use the bags more.
Also regarding the mugs there's a great thread on here under the DIY section where someone purchased the dollar tree do it yourself mugs. You are able to print whatever you want and slide the print out (they come with a template) into the mugs. With these mugs ppl can change them out when they get home if they want and the best part is they're only $1. I went to DT yesterday and bought 45 of them, of course I had to explain to the cashier what they were for. lol.
