      First, these play packs are from Dollarama and were a steal for $1!!! They contain a little pack of crayons, stickers and a 24 page activity book. My plan is to give these to my nieces and nephews at the rehearsal dinner to keep them occupied while we're all visiting.

      Also from Dollarama, these colouring books for $1 and activity pads for $2 (large crayons in the back and a big pad of colouring sheets and activities on the front).  All of these will go in a gift bag and sit on the kids' table at the reception.

      Anyone been to Michaels lately and perused the dollar (or dollar-fifty!) bins?  I didn't see any sewing kits, but I have all I need and wasn't really looking too hard.  They had a whole line of cupcake-items (cards, notepads, lip glosses, etc.)...and a nautical/beach-y line of cards, notepads, etc (lots of navy and cream colours)...but some GREAT simple rubber stamps of different shell shapes and a seahorse.  The grouping I was most interested in was the floral-filagree...cards, wrapping paper, sticky jewels and these acrylic photo holder cubes...in fruit punch colours (turquoise, bright pink, green and I think the last colour was orange).  They would be so cute on a table with photos of the b & g...or for table numbers...I plan to use mine for little signs in the mens' and ladies' washrooms (asking guests to help themselves to the toiletry baskets). I bought a cupcake notepad/pen for our flowergirl, and in with the toys I found these stick-on mustaches that I could see the kids (and some of the grown-ups) having a lot of fun with!

          Phew! It's taken me a week to finish reading this entire thread but I finally got to the last page. What great ideas!!

           

          We got engaged at the same resort we're getting married at so I got the OOT bags at the resort while we were there in november. They had them for $2 in the gift shop. So, now I just have to fill them with fun stuff.

           

          I was thinking of doing a laminated card with all the yummy drinks that we love there. Thoughts?

                      I started my OOT shopping yesterday finally! We wanted to wait until everyone was confirmed etc. I went to Dollaram and found Advil 10 tablet containers for $2.00. They also had Tylenor 12 tablet containers for $2. FI prefers Advil over Tylenol so we went with the Advil instead. Found a few other things like chapstik with SPF. So far a good start to My OOT Bags!
