    Other BIG "hits" for my group were:

     

    -sudoku/wordfind books (for the older crowd)

    -snacks (little bags of cheesies/chips/crackers)...SlimJims were a big hit as well

    -tip and key card holders (zip-loc/waterproof on a coil wrist band)....everyone used theirs

    -waterproof camera bags

    -TUMS

    -Pepto tabs

    -Aloe gel

    We got our key card holders yesterday in the mail and are so happy about them!!

     

    Where did you get your aloe from? We are having a really hard time finding travel size ones.. maybe we have to wait a bit longer till more summer stuff comes out.

      Onces we did pull the tabs about 5 out of the 40 we bought had dead batteries so we changed the ones that we needed. Because the screws are so small it took a bit but was worth it!

        We got our Aloe from Dollar Tree during one of our runs across the boarder to get stuff for the wedding.  They were large bottles and were $1.00!!!!!!

          From reading about OOT bags on this site, Dollar Tree kind of sounds like the best store with great finds. Thanks for the tip!

              I got them off an eBay seller. They were about 1.50 each....and I only put them in people's bags that I thought would use them.

                I would be interested to see which ones on DH gate you ordered. Are all of these types of wrist watches waterproof? I found some that are $1.20 each off that website...is that the cheapest?

                  Hey Ladies - I'm still on the hunt for some good/cheap tote bags - I'd like to personalize them myself. I'd really like the canvas/jute look. Any brilliant ideas? My wedding is coming up fast so I need to get on it ASAP! :) Thanks for the help!

                    I'm still waiting for the watches to ship. I ordered 2 lots of 20 and it came to $23.36. I asked for certain colours so maybe that's why they haven't shipped yet? Apparently these are waterproof. They sell the same ones at the Dollarama I believe.... Hopefully they come soon so I can let you know how they turned out!! It is a great idea to have in the bags. :)

                      I just ordered the same lot a few days ago (mixed colors) and got the email today that they shipped. Maybe it is because they have to pick out your colors, but really, how long does it take to do that lol. Ill let you know what mine are like when I get them. I got a few extra in case there are any duds ;)
