The quality seems great, zipper and everything (but their not super big, not too much room for a towel...) and the guys are getting Cooler Bags that FI found at Canadian Tire (since the beach bags looked a little "girly", LOL) California Innovations 18-hole Lunch Bag | Canadian Tire

    I feel like something is missing. (I have thought about towels, but they won't fit.) And this is what I have for fillers so far:

    jar candle from Michaels (Tropical Paradise scent)
    mini hand sanitizer
    sunglass wipes (2 each bag)
    starfish/shell soap from Michaels
    notepad, with magnet
    Aloe Vera (150 ML)
    Guys bags - travel playing cards from Michaels

    I am also planning a welcome letter/booklet, gotta work on that!

    Any suggestions for other fillers? I can't find travel bug spray for the life of me, my guests aren't flip flop wearers (maybe 3 out of say 20) and towels won't fit. urghhhhh

    And FI says not to bother with any more items because the bags itself are the gift, but I feel like since we already started with some fillers, I think we would need to actually fill the bag to a certain extent and not have only a few small items. Am I being too generous??
    I agree with your FI.. Thats enough I'm not sure if you have a personalized favor that you can add to your bag but reaaly you have it all.

        I also am wondering about the beach safe thing. You said you got most stuff at OTC, but I didn't see them there. Hmmm. TIA!

        Also - if you feel like you need to add something else, I like the idea of an SPF chapstick or something similar.

          Yes, I got all the pics that I included on Oriental Trading. Just enter "beach safe" in the search. They have various colors available. Otherwise, here is the direct link. Personalized Beach Safe Containers - Blue

            Thank you everyone for the suggestions and the info sharing!
            I splurged a little bit more, I couldn't resist, and I added slippers, SPF lip balm and first aid kits. The slippers and first aid kits I bought at Dollarama ($1.25 each!) and the SPF lip balm I ordered from Avon $0.79 each. So I didn't spend all that much (bought for 18 ladies bags), and I filled up the bags a little more which is exactly what I was hoping for :) Dollarama had some great new stuff, floaties and beach balls, flip flops all styles and colours, it was a tough decision last night. I think I was there for almost 2 hours! LOL!
