      My vote is for the travel mugs..I am partial to them as I got them for my guests lol. I have been to many AI and those mugs really do come in handy..less trips to the bar!

          We did OOT bags in each room, plus cigars for guys and 'dancing shoes' for the ladies at the reception (fuchsia Old Navy flip flops wrapped in green ribbon -- my MOH made the sign)

              Oh thanks! We are putting flip flops out and I was struggling with a good sign phrase for them - I might have to use yours!
              We're married! Jamie

                My FI tells me I'm going overboard and maybe he's right, but I want to do something nice for my guests who travel far to be with us. But we have a small number of people 20 - so I can splurge on them.
                We are doing OOT personalized with each guest's name bags ( include beach towels, wedding-week-survival-kit, koozies, CD wedding mix, a magazine to read). At the reception, we are using silver tone small picture frame as a placecard/favor #1 and later we give out pashminas (the real ones - cashmire and silk blend) for girls and travel sized cocktail shaker/cocktail recipe/small bottle of rum - for guys.

                  We're having a small wedding, as well - 12 in all. We have purchased beach bags and beach towels. The girls are getting a beachy, pretty color beach towel and the guys are getting their favorite sports team beach towel. I have pashminas for the ladies. We have the First Aid kit, along with playing cards, game books, etc. I would really like to get some personalized mugs. The problem I'm having is that most places have a minimum order, which is way more than the 12 that I need. Discount Mugs will allow me to purchase only 12 at a reasonable rate for printable, but then I have to add a $50 set up fee. End result, it seems like a lot for just 12 mugs. Any suggestions?

                    Patti, try to post here and team up with somebody. You order the minimum size - 50-60 etc cups and then just split it between the people. I did it for my koozies. They couldn't be personalized of course with my name and such, but I got it in my color and it said what I wanted to it say "to have and to hold to keep your drink cold".
