    This is great information! Thank you. I have a question...how did you gals get these items to the destination? Did you ship them or pack them with you? did you have to pay a customs fees? Thank you!

      I just received the same hibiscus bags from oriental trading company. They do have 2 of each color. Pretty thin, but nice for the price. same material as the reusable cloth grocery bags. I like the idea of having a variety for my guests as well.
      They also appear to be similar quality to the solid totes on the Paper Mart site ( well by the look of the pic on the website :), haven't actually seen them in person).
      FYI those interested in the solid bags, I was just in Garden Ridge the other day and they have several of the tote bags in solid colors for $1.00 each.

            I am just starting to think about the contents of my OOT bags and this has been a huge help in getting started.

                    Thank you for all the tips - I think to save money and space we're going to do the travel mugs, welcome letter, and hopefully one more item that everyone can use. The suggestions were so great though - thanks to everyone who has already done this - makes it so much easier for the rest of us!

                      Great ideas here! Has anyone done t-shirts? What are the thoughts on this one? I really like the mug idea from Dollar Tree.
