What are you giving MEN in the OOT bags....girls are easy!

Recommended Posts

Yeah the guys are a little tougher...I am doing one bag per couple as well. Figure it will be the girl carrying around the bag all week anyway! I think the only single guy I have to worry about is my 19 year old brother and he wouldn't care anyway if I even give him a bag! LOL.

 

There were some cute toiletry kits at Walmart for around 4 bucks for guys. It is in the travel section of Health and Beauty. There are also a ton of little things you can get for a guy there. Like mini deoderants, Axe body spray, 3 pack condoms *never know!wink.gif* mini toothbrushes and toothpaste, shout wipes...body wash...lots of stuff!

I think I'm going to do personalized koozies for the guys and maybe a beach ball and bottle opener. I'm not sure you can take cigars into mexico, so I might buy some once I get down there. That's a pretty good idea.

when you go through duty free pick up some of those mini liqure bottles.  Make labels for them before you leave...something like

 

Truth Serum

Pain Killer

love potion

courage builder

I am also planning on DIY - luggage tags, room key holders, bookmarks, tears of joy and a personalized letter for the bag. I have some templates but have to wait until 150 posts to get some more

I was talking to my mom the other day saying 1 per couple is enough although she thinks everyone should get one...who knows...

Great ideas ladies! I don't have many single guys going so far just one. For the couples I did a beach bag that the girls most probably will use but for the guys I bought these drawstring book bag at the dollar store and will give them pretty much the same stuff everyone else will be getting. I'm doing the personalized travel mugs, beer kookie, survival kit, key holder, door hanger, personalized note pad and pen. Oh and playing cards. I also got manicure and sewing kits but I figure ill only put those in the couples bags.

I am also doing one bag per couple, and separate ones for the kids (my 4 nephews and FI niece and nephew). For the couples I am putting:

 

-flip flop beer/bottle opener

-personalized aluminum water bottles so they can carry around water at the hotel and at home

-mini sunscreen/advil/pepto

-personalized chapstick

-foam football

and everything is going into a reusable, foldable grocery bag (b/c we like being green) that they have on sale at Ikea! (the Baggu's online are about $3-5 a piece!)

 

The kids are getting sunblock, kid sunglasses, foam footballs and frisbees. I might put some bandaids, b/c, well, kids are kids.

 

Single people are getting the same things, except I'll take out the football for the girls if I know they won't use them.

 

Wedding favors are the silver starfish wine stoppers, I haven't decided if I want them given out at the wedding or in the OOT bags.

 

LOVE the cooler idea, but it's a bit out of my budget.

 

There is also a thread someone amazing started called "for the frugal bride" (or something like that) with a BUNCH of websites that other brides post sites where they find incredible deals for OOT bag stuff. Search it! It's amazing! The thread started made all 60 OOT bags for $100 or something!

 

I'm not bothering with the flip flops, b/c who is coming to Cabo w/o flip flops?!? But a friend told me one can never have too many flip flops...
