What made your OOT bags unique and special for your guests??

Recommended Posts

We are having a fairly small group of people travel with us which allows for a bit more $ to be allocated to our OOT bags.  We'll be personalizing for each couple, FI's dad will be getting his preferred brand of golf balls personalized, my parents will be getting some sort of snorkeling gear, my sister will get some games and toys for the kids....

 

Standard items to go into our bag

 

- Bubba Kegs

- Tortuga Rum Cakes (local to Grand Cayman)

- Local Magazines - the Best of Grand Cayman

- Waterproof Cameras

- Typical Baggie of advil, sunscreen chapstick etc

- First Aid Kits

- Sewing kits

- Soduko or crossword books

- Deck of cards

 

possibly a few other little things. working on collecting stuff as I go...

cheapest i found was through etsy...  Was thinking of it myself but my conclusion was they will be heavy to pack and travel with, my guests may not have room to bring them back, the condos we are staying at provide bath sheet size beach towels.  Just my 2 cents ;)

i am doing somethings that i wished were in my oot bag when i went to a friends wedding in Cancun. there were about 2 days with rain that i wish i would have had something to do. i luckily brought my laptop... and on one of the days i went for a stroll and was popped the question! but i will be including in mine the following:

  • extra sunscreen (for the head/hair) i got severely burned even with sunscreen
  • playing cards
  • speakers for mp3 player/ipod
  • aloe vera
  • and special items in every-ones bag (like for my mother/father they will have a special keepsake photo album when i was younger) then for the bridesmaids and groomsmen they will all have individual items that represent them, for one everything will be pink, and for another they will have a handmade purse. i also found on etsy a nice lady that makes customized wine glasses. so each person will be getting one of those.
  • copy of a movie slide show that my fi and i will make
  • a personalized thank you letter
  • nail clippers
  • mascara/neutral colors of eye shadow
  • lip balm
  • goggles

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
