    A friend calligraphied 1/2 my invites last night. It's hard to show them, because I avoid posting addresses so this is the best I could do. I kept it really casual with just one envelope & first names.

    I got a calligraphy marker for $2.50 & realized it's not that hard to do some simple calligraphy.


    Here are my first aid kits. Details are here http://bestdestinati....671#post264879


    I thought I'd just add what all I am putting in our OOT bags

    First aid kits
    cup with guests names painted on them
    small combo master lock for luggage with safety tips
    3 riviera maya postcards
    OK magazines (from my subscription)

    left to buy/make

    water & snacks we buy when we get there
    spanish to english phrases
    tote bags
    photo share card
    welcome letter
    things to do in RM brochure

    I just did an estimate of what I've spent per pag. This is assuming I'll make 16. I still don't really know who many guests well have. I'm doing 1 bag per room.

    total per bag
    OOT bag 3 postcards per person 10 .63 (with 52 leftover)
    OOT bag cups 3.2 .25
    OOT bag first aid kits (14) 15 1
    OOT bag 96 immodium 10 .63
    OOT bags advil 5 .31
    OOT bag SPF chapstick (30) (ebay) 7.57 .47 (with 14 leftover- will probably give 2 per person)
    OOT bag misc printing 20 1.25
    OOT bag totes 16 1
    OOT bags master locks (16) 36 2.25
    magazines 0

    I'm at about $8 per bag ($128 ) & I still need to buy snacks to add to it. Crazy how fast it adds up. The locks were the most expensive, but I really like them. I can program the combo to be anything. I really wanted to do what I could to keep our guests stuff safe.

      Holy cow $128! Thats great! Hey it rhymed!

      I put an estimate of 15 pp and expecting 30 but round up to be safe with a total estimate of $500. I think I might go your route to cut my cost in half.

      I think you got plenty without the snacks. But a wonderful gesture to your guests. They are gonna love you more than they already do!

        I just spent $60 at oriental trading, so I'm no longer at $128. I bought post-its, my bags, coin purses, clips for the coin purses & a couple things for the AHR. I'll add pics later.
