      I would say the mugs would be more useful when they get back home. I know that I have tons of tote bags around the house, and we never seem to have enough travel mugs (for the morning commute). We ended up going with a "green" grocery bag style for the bag itself - something that is great for the beach, but also useful at home, and the inexpensive mugs. Both were around $1 each.

      definitely the mugs!!! Most people already assume to bring a lightweight beach bag when they go to a resort . . but many dont think about a mug. These allow you to keep your drink cooler, holds usually twice as much as most cups resorts pour (so two drinks in one), and has a top to keep bugs and sand out. . . . definitely a nice perk!

      You can buy brown paper bags at Michaels or Hobby Lobby in packs of 6 for around $3 .  .and just decorate them as your bags to hold all of your OOT items too!  Maybe have your monogram put on stickers and put on the bag. Or create a tag to hang off the bag.

        I'd say the mugs, same reasons as the other ladies. The resorts usually give you these small cups, I think stadium cups will allow them to be able to walk around and keep their drink hot/cool. I'm doing stadium cups and mugs. That way they can use the stadium cups around the resort with straws and save the mugs to take home. Another thing is I don't see the men carrying the bags, I'm thinking of doing one bag per room with two of everything.

        This was another idea I had as well - very easy to decorate with a few stamps or labels or cut outs, some tissue and some ribbon. I just couldn't see paying $5 or $10 for a custom tote, even as adorable as they are!!

          Hey Ladies, 

           

          Thanks for all the great websites! I found this one, have not ordered from there yet as I am still looking around to find stuff local.  

          Hopefully it will be useful to some of you.  Happy Shopping!
