    I think that's a great idea... Or maybe a GC to the spa at the resort or something would be nice too... I think I'm spending about $10-15 per OOT bag when it's all said and done (with bulk orders etc). But I think that making them is time consuming so going with the gc is a great idea.

      Hi! We haven't put a letter together yet. I figured we'd be able to find a bunch here but, surprisingly, there doesn't seem to be many (or maybe I just can't find them!?). Here's one that someone was nice enough to post -- http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t43806

        I think the GC with a letter is not only a great idea but going to SOOOOOO much easier to haul down there! Go with it and run! Had I not already started collecting items, I would consider stealing the idea.

          Here's an idea for an easy oot bag if anyone's just wanting to give a simple kit and not mess with the DIY stuff:

            It's, of course, a more expensive option but if that's in your budget it sounds like a great idea! You won't have to worry about traveling with all of the items and it's still something that shows your appreciation to your guests.

              Yes, sounds like a great and easy idea and could be economical if it replaces the OOT bag and favors. Although we have a TON of stuff in our oot bags and they are less than $10 each so I think the main benefit for you is saving on lugging the stuff down there/putting them together.

              I would just suggest that where ever the gift certificate is for, they have things for that amount. (The Spa would be great, but few spas have services for that low, so many might go unused).

                      There is a place on ebay to get monogrammed shot glasses - this is another idea for favors for our guests we are batting around! :)
