    I've been scratching my head with this one for a bit now and can't seem to come up with many OOT bag goodies that will appeal to the men. First of all, the canvas totes we found are great and we'll have our logo printed on them but how many men actually use canvas totes? There are about 5 or so single men coming to our wedding and we're considering getting them these ASICS mesh beach bags/backpacks in place of the canvas totes (no iron ons for them, I'm sure they'll miss having the logos...). Now, for the women, we're throwing some of those handy sandalwood fans, the pashminas for the evenings and maybe a lil coin purse to carry a few bare essentials w/them to pool/beach and of course the rest of the stuff (snacks, aspirin, immodium, lip balm, playing cards, candy hearts w/messages in Spanish, lip balm and possible sippy cups/sports bottles) but nothing specifically for the men. It just seems like they're getting the shaft on this deal but we can't find good items for just the men at reasonable prices to make them feel special. What have the rest of you done for the men's OOT bags?

      Are you doing koozies? I ordered camo koozies for the guys....maybe condoms? That's what James wants me to put in his single male friends bags...such a guy thing - but hey - it's Mexico - they might get lucky!

        Ok, totally crass, but we have 3 single guys who will be attending our wedding (who happen to be all the groomsmen and are FI's best friends).

        We're giving them "man-whore" bags---- backpacks (instead of the pink tote bags for women), with a beach towel, margarita glasses with margarita mix and a tequila bottle once we get to Mexico, custom Mexican phrases for picking up women, poker chips/cards, and condoms....

        hehehe....

          I love the "man whore" bags!! I have 5 single guys going and now I totally have to do this too - thanks for the ideas!

          I found travel size lotions/after shaves for men on Ebay from Lab Series and Zirh.

          Gotta love ebay!

            HA! I was really wanting to get some condoms w/our names printed on the wrappers like "Sean and Claudia love you!". BAHA! Sean shook his head at that one. <shrug>

            We're thinking of Coozies too actually so maybe that's enough? dunno.

              I LOVE the "man-whore" bags idea! LOVE IT! Because the men that we're thinking of are so... well, that type. heh. Thank you so much for this idea! I guess we can inter-change 'phrases for picking up men' for the one guy who's not into the ladies. Brilliant!

              Another idea is Gold Bond powder. I never knew how popular it was with them men until my sister's wedding. Crazy.

                  Oh, that's another good idea. thank you!

                  It seems so easy to come up with inexpensive accessory ideas for the ladies but not as much for the men. And men say we're difficult...
