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.
