    I got my lip balm at the Dollerama here, and have seen them at a few locations.  They have the Aquafina ones 2 for $1.25.  They're not the standard shorter lip balm, but are long and skinny.  The best part about them is that they fit perfectly with the free Vistapint return labels! I was able to attach two of the labels, one to each side, and they are a perfect fit!! They cover all of the logo and ingredients and such, and look like they were ordered just for us! And all for $0.63 each! 
     



     



    Oh that's an awesome tip, as I've already ordered the return address labels! Hehe. I didn't see the Aquafina ones at my store but I will keep looking

     

    I also bought one of those meshy bags today when I was in picking up some stuff for my mom, I couldn't resist as it is my favorite color (the bright blue one)

      Oh, and I meant to add too (sorry for multiple posts but I can't figure how to edit my previous post to add more stuff?? anyway)

      I scoured two shoppers drug marts today looking for that passport cover/matching luggage tag set and couldn't find anything like that :( boo-urns

        hahaaa...me too!! I was just at shoppers and didn't see the passport cover/luggage tags. I'll check a couple more though, and let you know if I have any luck.

          I found the shoppers luggage tags/passport covers here in Calgary - they were randomly at the end of an aisle but not on the end where they put sale stuff etc - it was on one of those hanging shelves they have at the ends of the aisles....not sure if that helps anyone or if that makes no sense at all!

                I was at the Shoppers at Market Mall - they weren't a sale item though - looked more like a "seasonal" type item and there were quite a few when I was there.  If you go to the MM shoppers - they are at one of the last aisles before you get the the Canada Post thing in the back corner and they are at THAT end of the aisle (not the end closest to the checkouts).  Not sure how much they were though but I think they were under $5 each

                    I found an awesome item at the dollar store. I'm ditching the idea of wrist coils and id holders for the guests as I've had several male guests sort of chuckle and say they wouldn't likely use them. So today at the dollarstore I found what is technically a passport holder, although I think it is too small for a passport. They are black and have CANADA and  flag or maple leaf on them. They have two zippered pockets and a netted pocket in the back. They are worn around your neck and come with one of those knobs things you slide to adjust the length. I can put a card/note in the netted pocket...and best of all, I'm certain they are an item my guests will reuse! They were $1.50 each and are good quality. Such an easy addition to my welcome bags without the work! They are light weight so will be easy to transport. I am attaching a photo...Just thought I'd share as these excited me so! LOL
