    Seeing how most people on here suggested mini-bottles of liquor, flasks, etc. how about a hangover remedy? There is one out there on the market that is a patch, much like those nicotine patches you wear when quitting smoking.

    They are called Zaca Organic Hangover Patches and they actually work. I used one for my high school reunion and even gave away a few to friends to use that night. Two weeks later one of the gals I gave one too messaged me on Facebook asking me where she could get some of her own because she was headed to Vegas in a few weeks...

    Here's a review a blogger did and tested the patch against 14 gin and tonics. Might be a nice thing to include in the OOT bags for both guys and girls if you are combining the two.

        Thanks for all the great ideas - I'm really liking the playing cards and underwater disposable cameras. I like flasks too so I'll have to check the prices out.

          For the guys - what about some kind of Tequila from Mexico? You could also find the cigars once you get to Mexico, then you don't have to worry about customs. Ask your WC (if you have one) to give you a good cigar vendor?

          I was thinking of doing an MP3 player for my brothers (I have three). I just did a quick look for MP3 players and didn't find much less than $12. Unless you want to ship from China.

          What about a fun money clip? (I don't think I would find this fun...) There are some neat vendors on Etsy that make pretty unique clips.

            We got the guys flip flops with their favorite sports team logo on them (got them @ Kohls.com) & a silk/linen button down shirt (on sale @ Costco's for $17 each) to wear to the wedding.

                I think we are going to give some to people before they leave so they have it right when they get there. It saves room packing in your luggage. Of course I have people from out of country too so I will have to pack those seperately since I won't see them before.

                Old Navy has men's flip flops and I think I am adding those in to my kits for sure for the guys.

                  hey Nicdeb928 i totally understand what you are saying... i am having around 75-80 people coming... I am making my oot bags really simple... i chose nylon drawstring bag (its unisex and so easy to handle). The contents within the bags are simple woman are getting sarongs and well for the guys we might just give them condoms LOL (alot of the guys are young). For some of the kids we are putting like water footballs and some card. I am also making little just in case things like tylenol, hand wipes and hand santizers and I am looking for immodium AD.... Hope this helps..
