      We went to the $ store yesterday and loaded up on puzzle books ($1), hand sanititizer (3/$1 - .33), mini notepads (4/$1 - .25), tissue packets (8/$1 - .13) and sunscreen ($1). I have heard on some other threads that sunscreen in the summer weddings can really be appreciated if someone forgot or left theirs at the pool. Sunscreen in Mexico cost $26/bottle. A friend just came back and had to buy some while she was there. Since it was only a $1, I figured it was worth having in there. Many of my guests are going for a week.

      I am definitely buying personalized mugs to add in too! Thanks for all the tips.

        We ended up just using aqua paper gift bags that I bought at Michael's for 37 cents each and stuck a logo sticker on the front. They were really easy to pack and then people wouldn't feel badly about throwing them out.



        I bought immodium caplets and pepto tablets. The way they are packaged made it easy to separate them out but still have them be in their original packaging, if that makes sense. So, the pills weren't loose. I just wrote out the directions on a clear label and stuck them to business cards I had leftover from a Vista print order from other wedding stuff. That way everyone had the directions too.




        Ha, I know! I should've known better. lol

        Kelly,

        Thanks! That makes perfect sense!! I will definately use that idea. Now to find tylenol or something of the sort. Thank you so much :)

            for those looking for travel mugs here is what I have complied: Staples, BJs/Sams wholesale clubs, Minimus - For All Your Travel Size Item Needs, First Aid Tablets & First Aid Medications...Wholesale to the Public Online! the last website someone just mentioned in this forum and I wrote an email to my friend who is a pharmacist to check it out looks like good deals on generics but I wouldn't want people to get ripped off so I'll post her response when I get it.

              Thanks ladies! Good to know about the beach balls - I definitely won't be including those :). I'm wondering if anyone included little snacks in their bags? I was thinking things like granola bars, trail mix, etc.

                  Ok here is the deal with the site I posted, my friend who is a pharmacist says that they look legit but don't have the seal to prove it and they don't have a place on the site to read customer reviews so you are buying at your own risk

                    Thanks for the heads up Megan!! I was going to buy some things from there, but I will keep looking around to see if I can't find something in the store.
