Originally we were doing OOT bags.. When we added up all the expenses of the bags and thought about it a little more (guests prob not using everything we put in the bags anyways) we decided to skip the OOT Bags.

We are now doing travel mugs. There is a lot of input regarding travel mugs on this forum which helped sway our decision.

We're giving a donation to My Vision Foundation in each person's name. We'll give everyone a keychain from the foundation with a note on it explaining this. We're doing OOT bags as well.

We're also doing donations. My current plan is to print small cards with a choice of 3 or 4 charity organizations that are special to us and our families. We'll have someone collect the cards and make the appropriate donations. If cards get lost, we'll just divide equally..Initially I was looking for some reputable organizations to donate to in Jamaica, but haven't spent a lot of time looking. We're planning on doing OOT bags w/ little bottles of rum, coffee, suntan lotion etc..

We haven't decided to do anything reg. favours as it'll just be ourselves & our son there, might change our minds nearer the time, if you have a big group going then maybe I would but if its small, I personally wouldn't bother.

We had planned on doing OOT/Welcome bags and then realized how expensive it was getting all that stuff plus favors. Then I found this site Party Flops and fell in love with the personalized flip flops. So instead of doing a total OOT bag and then favours we decided to give the very basic (sunscreen, antibacterial lotion, scented tea lights) oot bags with the flip flops in them too and then not do favors at the reception. I think they'll enjoy the gift more if they get them at the beginning of their trip.

 

For our AHR we are making a donation in our guests' names.
