      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...

        I am thinking of doing personalized towels, but think they may be super expensive!  Any good ideas on these?

          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 ;)

                  Godiva actually has some kick butt macaroons they are $3.50 per but they are pretty big and you would only need 1 per bag!!

                      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

                      All because, two people fell in love!
