CANADIAN OOT BAG info...where to shop!

Recommended Posts


Glad to hear you liked your mugs! I ordered from here too. Does anyone know how duty works? Is it sometimes random? I can't figure out why sometimes I pay and sometimes I don't....

Also, got our mugs in from Factory 21 on Ebay.  They are fantastic!!  I would highly recommend them to anybody.  And if anyone wants to know, duty is around $60....

Where did you get your travel aloe from?? How much??

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 :)

Yay Lasallebabe! So great to hear everything went well with your wedding and the bags and the rest of us aren't slaving away on our OOT's for no reason.. lol!

 

I am including travel sized sunblock in the OOT's. I bought them on a trip to the states for 99 cents each. I think I got banana boat and ummm.. coppertone sport. Yes, I know ppl will most likely (I hope) bring sunblock, but I don't like taking my big sunblock with me to excursions, etc. I'd much rather a smaller size. I did get the Aloe through avon when it was on for $1.89 and it is a bigger bottle but as far as my previous experience goes, nobody ever remembers aloe and always gets burned somewhere where they didn't slather on the sunblock (usually back/shoulders). When we did a dolphin swim excursion we had to shower off before getting in the water with the dolphins.. man we all got so burned that day.. anyways.

 

Has anybody ever engraved their bubba keg mugs? I am sending some of our stuff through the mail to the hotel where we will be staying the night before getting on the cruise and I am going to mail it from Maine (I am going BLACK FRIDAY shopping in less then two weeks - lovelovelove Black Friday) to Florida. I've already made arrangements with the hotel people. I did not get mugs for everybody, just the guys really. And I want to get their names and like, it'll say on the mug:

    ERIC
BEST MAN

  04/28/12

 

something like that? idk but I want to know if you guys have ever taken them to a place to get them engraved? I know a nice trophy place here locally that I might try to get it done at, as opposed to money gouging Things Engraved or something.

 

For the kids going with us, I bought the young girls Lip Smackers chapsticks when they were on sale, and I'll give them a whole pkg (of 3), and I have an inflatable tube and 'floaties' for my Godson/ringer bearer who will be 3 at the time. I also got those little 'luggage' stationary kits from Dollarama for the younger kids. I have notepads and pens and notebooks and sticky notes from Vistaprint too... and everybodys gonna have a personalized shirt.. lotsa vistaprint ordering has been going on by me and mom in the last uh.. almost a year now lol

 

Oh and I couldn't find individual pepto products.. so I bought the chewables in 48's and hopefully a sheet of 6 for each adult will do me. Urg, I just remembered I was gonna buy that box of immodium on ebay.. I know pepto is supposed to work for that too but having the runs while youre on vacation is not a good time rolleyes.gif

 

Hey I have a question for you guys.. I bought engraved flasks for the guys on ebay.. then the best man dropped out and one of the groomsmen got promoted. What do I do with the flask that says the old best mans name and what do I do with the flask that says Eric is a groomsman? They're probably ruined now eh? Like no use for em.. they were like 7 bucks each so not too big of a deal..  OH and another question

I was pm'ing with a bride on here who bought too  many bags and was gonna sell me her blue and green bags.. and we had all the arrangements worked out.. she was gonna go to the post office and weigh the package to get me a shipping price so I could send her the $.. then her wedding date was approaching.. finally it came and went.. and she hasn't been back on the site/not responding to my pm's for a couple of months now.. should I assume those bags are gonzo? :(

What I have figured is that if it's a ginormous box, then they will charge duty because they will get more $$ from it.  I've bought stuff that came in smaller packages from the States and I haven't been charged.  Just be prepared to pay it, that's how I look at it.

OMG...that sucks that she would just not answer you sad.gif  Considering your wedding is approaching, I wouldn't necessarily count on those bags.  I'm not sure where you are from, but if you are a GTA bride, then creative bag has an amazing selection of bags in all different colours (I'm pretty sure you can buy online too...)  Good luck with your OOTs, and your groomsmen...

You should only pay duty on items that are NOT made in Canada, US or Mexico. Anything that is made in North America (Canada, US and Mexico) should not cost you anything but shipping.

    • 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.
