CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts

I bough Waterproof Labels from http://www.etsy.com/transaction/61195201 to be placed on our mugs.

I haven;t got them yet, so I'm not sure of the quality/durability, but shes says they are the same material as bumper stickers so they have to work!
I'll give an update and pictures of course when their in.

 

I also ordered some waterproof labels that can be printed at home from Creative Lables before I found the ones above. I will probably use them for Shot Glass favours.

Hey there!

I thought about adding sunblock to the oot's but everyone will be bringing their own so opted not to. Instead i'm adding aloe! I've also included spf lip balm. If you really want to add sunblock I've seen it (decent stuff) at the dollarama for $2.

I found travel size ones on ebay but it was only 18 ( I need 30) and it was $20 which wasn't bad but shipping was $26 which kinda turned me off as its more than the purchase.  However, I cannot find travel size sunblock anywhere and all the sunblock I do find is full size for $10 or more.  I am wondering if I need to include this as I do know must people will remember to take sunblock when going to Jamaica.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

I decided against including sunscreen in my OOT bags because I'm sure 99.9% of my guests will pack their own anyway, so a little travel sized sunscreen will be a waste, in my opinion.

 

I never bring aloe vera to my beach holidays and then find myself wishing I had some on many occasions! So I'm including travel sized aloe vera in my OOT bags. And I often forget chapstick when I go on holidays and miss it so bad that I end up having to buy it wherever I am, so I am including SPF chapsticks as well ;)

 

 

Jacq, check out Bubba Kegs here: http://www.shopbubba.com/t-bulk.aspx

They can personalize the mugs on orders of 48+.

 

 

 

AquaCait, that is such a great idea about golf stuff!! I definitely have a bunch of golfers in my group who are excited to hit the Jamaican courses while we're there. I just might add some golf-themed items to their OOT bags now! Thanks for the idea :)

Ladies...I have just returned from my wedding at Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana. All of my guests absolutely loved everything in my Welcome bags---I'm so glad cuz I obsessed over it for soo long. Of all of the items; water bottle, welcome booklet, book mark, survival kit, magnets, post cards (all the misc. vistaprint stuff), glow sticks, etc....if I had to pick the one item I saw people use the most...it would be a little pouch thing (hangs around your neck) that I bought at the Dollar Store for $1.50 each. I'd say it was about 5 inches tall and about 3.5 inches wide. It had a net pocket thing on the back and two zipper pockets on the front. EVERYONE used it! It held your room key, your $ (for tipping), a chap stick, a pack of smokes/lighter and in some cased a small camera/phone. It was probably the one item I put the least amount of thought into...and yet, it got the most use......go figure.....

I think the sunscreen would be a waste as well which is why I am torn.  I feel like the bags should have this just in case someone rushes or overlooks this.  But at the same time I think "who is gonna forget sunscreen when going to Jamaica?"

 

Thanks for the tip on the bubba kegs I never knew they had a website.

what we did ...is got a travel size sunscreen, with this we added an aloe tube too....this way everyone is covered. my thinking is that i didnt want that one personto forget it IE: MY MOM lol then for the week i have to hear about it lol... and to be honest, the resort always has a gift shop that they can get more at if ppl do forget.

I actually found mine at Dollarama, it was full size Hawaiian Tropic SPF 30 for $2. I bought mine back in the summer and bought out the whole store! But I was actually at Walmart today and they had the travel size Hawaiian Tropic for $2

We have a huge group coming with us, which means I'm up to approx. 55 bags.

There was no way we could afford to but a "survival kit" in everyones bag so instead we will make up a big tupperware container of everything that should be in there and have it available for our guests if they run out of something or forget something, so they don't have to pay the outrageous $ the gift shop will charge.

We're just going to tell them at the welcome party that it is there for them to use.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
