I wasn't really looking for something that they would use for coffee afterwards, and the hippy in me says that putting hot drinks in plastic is wrong haha, so the guests likely won't use them for anything besides destination vacations. But for a bride on a budget with 100 guests, these are perfect! More than perfect! 

    Thats is an awesome deal!!! i wish i could do mugs.. seems a little pointless though when im not staying in an all inclusive. not sure what too put in my OOT bags all the regular things dont really work with a non AI resort

      Hmm non-AI gifts...

       

      We got our wedding party towels which we are going to embroider with their names on... kind of expensive for a gift for everyone but I know that I'd love that as a gift. I also think the first aid kits are super cute but can't afford them for my group. We are just putting in tylenols and emergen-Cs and some wetnaps and a condom, not a full kit. 

       

      Beach bags? Beer Koozies? ZigZags? (haha just kidding, but I see you're going to Jamaica)


      Iberostar Rose Hall Beach, Montego Bay

      91 guests and counting....

        LOL zigzags!!! thats tooo funny.. but i do know a few who would use them... well my family.. my fiances on the other had are a little conservative lol. I did get first aid kits from dollarama... they were only 1.25!!! and i found vintage key bottle opener keychains on ebay for 1.45 each which i think will come in handy if people want to stock their room fridges with beer from the store. I also made all the ladies barefoot sandals. but the bags still seem empty.

              I have also yet to find hand sanitizer, aloe, shout/tide wipes, tylenol, pepto at a price that I am willing to pay. Hoepfully I'll find some by hunting at dollaramas. I am also going to Seattle in a week so hopefully I can find some goodies there!

                Hand sanitizer is 2 for a dollar at dollarama i think... or wait for bath and body to be 5 for 5 again. Dollarama also has tylenol or advil trvael tubes for 2 bucks each.. each tube as 10 mills. aloe has been difficult for me as well.

                    I don't know where Neche is , but Pembina is right after you cross the border. Where that gas station is that says "last stop before the border" when you are heading back to Canada. Hope it works out for you!
