Don't they just seem so... bare?? lol, I have a survival kit, some hand sanitizer out side of the survival kit, first aid kits, tissues, a tour guide, all of my welcome information and itineraries etc... a shot glass, and it just seems so bare, the kids ones are better because I got them snorkle gear from dollarama and water guns and beach balls.. I was thinking of getting beach balls for the guests too because they come in packs of 2 at the dollar store and I can just seperate the two... so .50 each.... I definately like your face cloth idea, but ours comes with them... Pashmina's are ok, but I cant see any of my friends using them and I cant find them for less than 5, maybe ive just given up on the extent of searching I am willing to do for items lol, especially now that my wallet has swelled up and I have pretty much met my budget... lol

I am already pretty up there with my OOT bag price so I really dont want to add a lot more.
- 2 mugs
- 1 wedding week survival kit (ziploc sandwich bag full of stuff with bag topper)
- 1 note pad, pen, sewing kit
- 1 shell soap
They just arent as full as I anticipated them being. I am thinking of adding a wordsearch/crosswork/sudoku book and some playing cards to each bag. I don't think it has to be full full full but I also don't want it to look like we skimped out when we definitely didn't!!!!!! I know exactly what you mean but the towels filling them out!!!! Another option may be the vista print t-shirts or hats.... though I know most of my guests wouldn't use them.... pashminas.... hmmm I will keep you posted as I get ideas!!!!!
That actually IS a great Idea, maybe I will hold off and see what happens... If I go, then great, and if I dont... well whatever lol. do you have any store reccomendations that you specifically bought from?? Thanks =)

I mean, great price.. but a lot of hassle... but Black Friday is a must-do for us every year.. it's the best shopping experience
