Mine was suppose to be $20 and now have doubled it per bag =<... won't be as big as yours.. only 30.

- lip balm w/ sun screen
- mentos gum mini bottles
- bottle of water
- miniature playing cards
- wet ones wipes
- aloe after sun lotion
I was trying to avoid anything big and bulky so I got everything in packs.
$40/bag seems a big high but it depends on what you want to give to your guests and what your budget is. Good luck!

I have 15 bags for the adults and 3 kids bags, so I have spent more bc I dont have a whole lot of them. I think I have spent approx $25-$30 per bag. I havent gotten an exact amount yet, but just adding it up in my head - that is where my bags sit at right now. I am having to buy a few more pahmina's as I dont have enough and still waiting on my key card holders, but other then that I think I am done mine. I havent decided if I am going to put a little bag of cookies of something along those lines in there yet, but if I d, that will be it.
I hope that helps!

There are no "MUST HAVE" items in a bag - remember that it's a gift and most guests won't actually expect it. So you put whatever you want in them. For instance, I did not do any special gift (no mug or else), I just included stuff that I thought would be useful - welcome booklets, "survival" kits (ie medecine I thought would be useful), pens (personalized, see at Oriental Trading they are very affordable) and post its (for doors messages), water guns (for fun !), spanish phrase books, and the favor I had picked (which was plantable paper). everybody was really happy with that (and everybody actually used the medicine).
There's a master list available in here :

Here are a few things I will include:
welcome to aruba booklet
2 snacks: fruit snacks, granola bars, peanuts, pretzels, cookies
off wipes( insect repellant)
wet ones( or hand sanitizer)
individual tissue packs
water? -pick up when we arrive
I found cute/inexpensive white pastic bags that will fit my welcome book and the other items.
White Plastic Bags
I was also thinking about putting the stuff in a white gable box.
I don't want to pack too many bulky items that may get messed up during the travel. I was planning on using my carry-on for all of my oot supplies. I haven't bought anything for the bags yet. I will wait until 2 weeks before to see how much space I have in my luggage and go from there.

I found great cheap bags made of Jute plant fiber on sale for $1 (original price $5.99)and having spent only that on the bags I have plenty of extra money for things to put in the bags! Here's the link with bag's*PICS*.
Inside the bags (items still TBD) but so far I though of:
* Personalized water (get the water there, I will bring the labels from home to put on them)
* $0.99 first aid kit
* small insect repellant (I'm pretty sure most of my guests will forget to bring this!)
* small hand sanitizer
* etc. etc...
