Teenage Boy OOT Bag Items???

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

We are doing simple OOT bags for our guests and have 1 teenage boy age 14 joining us. Does anyone have any suggestions for items for his OOT bag? We are kinda at a loss.........

 

 

Thanks!

Maybe a Maxim? HA HA just kidding. I would say, food for sure. Sunscreen, maybe a squirt gun and some cards.

Is he sporty? Maybe a football or paddleball for the beach. I'm throwing in a Q20 game for a 12 year old boy we have coming. I agree with Kathi, definitely food.

Maybe do some AXE shower gel or something. You could also find a beach towel or t-shirt or something since you only need one. I love the idea of a disposable underwater camera.

 

What is going in your other bags?

We are trying to keep them small with gifts and a few items that might come in handy during the trip. Right now in the others we have disposable underwater cameras (love that idea!), photo albums, insulated mugs, luggage tags, cards, frisbee, passport cover and a coin purse to hold the room key. We are also making up bags with immodium, pepto bismol, suntan lotion ect, but since hes not of age we just werent sure what to add. Doubt he will want an insulated mug or a photo album.

 

 

I like the idea of food though, and the maxim!!! hahah Going to add on the shower gel, football and towel for him! Thanks :)

I was planning on doing just the parents OOT bag, but I think I may include one in the room for the boys (14-15yr). I was thinking of adding some power drinks since I see many teen boys drinking them, but the parents may not appreciate caffeinated-sugared boys running around.

 

I was planning on regular disposable camers, but I really like the underwater camera idea. I know I use one everytime we're on a beach vacation. Maybe we'll include both in the boys bags in lieu of other items they wouldn't want.

This is a hard one- but here is I would get for younger guys.... how about those handheld electronic games - you can find them at the dollar general or online cheap, gigantic water guns (ok, so they dont' fit in the bag but it's cool), I would also think about a metal detector if you are on a beach. My little sisters had one of these and they had a blast with it. Then of course there are the standards, sunscreen, cool hats, sunglasses (maybe if you do fewer things for these guys you could spend a bit more on these items cause at 14 it's all about the brands), car magazines / books etc. Definitely a football or two for the beach, money for the resort (every kid loves more money even if mom and dad gave them some) , etc. I think there are a lot of fun things you could get the younger guys - just go browse walmart toy and sport areas - you will find tons of ideas.

We are giving all of our guests OTT bags and we are also giving one to our 12 year old son. Here are a few of the extra things that I have included in his OTT bag, some are alittle expensive- Beach Ball, underwater camera, Video Game magazine, glow sticks (Michael's for $1.00), sports water bottle, itunes gift card, candy/gum (I will pick up there), water balloons, and a small coin purse/bag full of quarters.

I think the ideas listed so far are great. My brother is 15 and absolutely loves video games and cars (he actually buys cheap, broken down cars, repairs them and then sells them just because he enjoys working on them). For him I am thinking car magazine(s), the little bag or something with quarters in it, and definately the snacks. I think the key is to figure out what the kids/teens enjoy and use that for ideas. Example, my other brother who recently turned 18, is pretty different and loves sports so for him it will probably be a sports magazine, maybe a football or something along those lines.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
