I am doing OOT bags as well, one per room too. A friend suggested to me to get supplies from Costco as they come in packages of little packets that come to much less than a dollar per piece, just something to think of!
I decided to not do favors and just do the bag, I know that i personally would get a kick out of the bag more than a favor. I'm including a common spanish phrases book that I got free as a print out which I'll fold into a book, cocktails for dummies so they can have fun ordering different drinks at the bar, travel candle I'll make stickers for, custom match books, nice mesh beach bags, room list, welcome letter, bug spray, purell, motrin, emergency, vitamins, lip balm and a maraca.
I think it will be fun, definitely worth it!

So far we have pashminas for the girls, emergen-c, shout wipes, lip balm, sunscreen, little first aid kits, water guns (hee hee, I couldn't resist) and will be getting sudoku books, advil/tylenol, pepto or imodium, & maybe some cards. I think for the guys we might get a mini tequila or shot glass once we're down there. And we'll get some little pool toys & activity books for the kids that are going.
I like the idea of getting things locally when you're there to add to the bags, then you don't have to worry about bringing it all.
And hitting up Costco is a really good idea!
I'm not so worried about getting stuff there intact cuz none of it's really breakable, but I am a little worried about lugging it all there! I've heard from multiple people that we should hold onto our receipts & bring those in case we get stopped at customs. Also might be a good idea to split things up between you & FI and any friends/family coming from your area.
