CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts


They aren't cheap Celticgirl.  I believe roughly $10 at the beer store, $8.95 at Canadian tire but you can get them on sale for $5.95 from time to time.  That is both for the 20oz size.  I have seen (think you are in the forum where this was brought up) US brides getting them at walmart, the 32 oz mugs for $6.95

 

Not sure of your budget but 65 bubba mugs will definitely set you back significantly no matter if you get them on sale or regular price!

Hey Celtic...do you still have the contact info for the Jamaican tourism board that hands out the free brochures? We were told that they stopped doing that ages ago and no longer mailed them out! Although out OOT bags are done, it would be a great FREE addition!

 

Thanks a bunch! :)

After mulling it over with my FI, we decided NOT to buy those travel kits up top, really.... everyone will probably bring their own toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving gear etc. (I still really like the Idea, but he wanted to know why we would pay 400 bucks to buy something everyone already had). ... which I can kind of agree with! 

With that being said, my OOT bags contain the following (I have listed a break down of what they all are costing PER PERSON -- If anything came in packages of 2 or more, I opened them up and put one per bag, with the exception of the leis and tissues and ID badge holder if it was for couples! (I have 65 people, and am doing a bag for every couple and every single so I have 37 bags):0.

The Bag (12 pack- Bought from Oriental Trading CO online) ------------------------------------------------------- 0.83 per person.
Lip Balm (packs of 2- from dollarama) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0.50 per person
First aid (Dollarama)----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1.25 per person
Tissues (Packs of 8 -Dollarama)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0.25 per person (I gave 2 per bag)
Leis (5 packs- Dollarama)----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0.20 per person (I gave out 2 for couples and 1 for singles - 65 in total)
Hand Sanitizer (2- Pack)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0.50 per person
Tylenol - (travel sized contains 10 tabs- Walmart)-----------------------------------------------------------------------2.00 per person
Equate brand Stomach Relief (48 tabs, 8 rows of 6 tab sheets - Walmart)-----------------------------------------0.81 per person (I gave out one of the sheets that have 6 tabs per bag)
Tums (3 Life saver sized rolls for travel - Walmart)----------------------------------------------------------------------0.71 per person
Wrist band for key holder - (12 pack- Oriental Express)--------------------------------------------------------------- 0.25 per person
ID badge hodler for room key -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------0.39 per person (I got a pack of 100 but will only need 65, so I will have 35 extra to resell
Jamaican Tour Guide (Contacted the tourist board)--------------------------------------------------------------------FREE!!!!!
Welcome Letter----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DIY
Thank you card----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DIY
Itinerary of the week/popular excursions----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DIY
Timeline of wedding day------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ DIY

For a whopping total of 8.66 per bag (under my 10.00 budget!!!

I may still add pashmina`s to the girls bags, we shall see!.... Because we were under budget for this, we could still afford to give out wedding favors (Which I REALLY wanted to do) so we ordered personalized shot glasses which are arriving next week (They have a palm tree, our names, the location, and date all in my wedding colors), they came to 140 for 72!!! for some reason it was cheaper to buy 72 than 65, so that is only costing like 2.00 per person!!

Sorry for the novel, I just thought this may help people looking to save like myself!!!! Hope someone gets some use of this

I think you are better off to order them direct online from somewhere who customizes their stock.  At $2.98 you will be able to find a comparable mug and have it customized that way

 

Here are a few links for you if you haven't checked them out before

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
