    Hey there...getting married in St. Thomas in May while on a cruise. =) Expect about 30 people, including 5 little kids. Already have some great favor bag items lined up, and wanted to share...

    First off, my main color theme is green, with a little bit of purple thrown in. You have no idea what a chore it is to items in these colors! Of course, these colors totally do not work for the guys at all, but for the girls, they work just great!

    One "girl" item I found that I just love is a travel sewing kit. I found them for $1.69/ea. plus shipping at createforless.com. Ironically, they come in purple, green (and hot pink). I am so impressed with these kits - 6 spools of thread, buttons, needles, thimble, tape measure, scissors, safety pins. Such a great deal for the price! I highly recommend! =)

    I also came across these purple and green (how convenient!) flip-flop notepads. Found them at Wrapwithus.com for $1.99/ea., which was the cheapest I came across.

    For the guys, I am going with the obvious - deck of cards and likely a beach theme bottle opener of some sort. Haven't quite figured them out yet, since they are so "difficult!"

    Everyone is getting a cruise ship luggage tag (Kate Aspen favor) and a pair of Old Navy flip flops - purple or green for the girls, brown for the guys.

    And, finally, I work at a consumer products company and am throwing in some product for everyone - very useful product like toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, etc. I get this stuff dirt cheap (not free, unfortunately), so it's an inexpensive way to fill up the bags! ;-)

    Also, wanted to mention that I found very cute sterling silver pearl lariat necklaces for my two bridesmaids at EvesAddiction.com. Their jewelry is excellent quality for the price.

    Let me know if you have any questions about anything - more than happy to share further information.

      Great finds! I agree the guys gifts for the OOT bags are tough! What are other people doing for them?
