      Thank you Lasalle...I didn't know the pouch holder thingy would be such a hit. I was going to go with regular room key holders, but this sounds even better!

        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

           

          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? :(

            Manda123, I got my travel aloe from Walmart. I believe it is $2. But I've heard Superstore or Rexall has them for a bit cheaper.

              DramaticAnnie,

              I got my Bubbas engraved for the hubby and myself this weekend from "Things Engraved", I'm really excited to see how they turn out! I'll post a pic after I pick them up.

                  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.

                      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.
