    Hi blushing brides!!!

     

    I'm in the process of making my OOT bags and I don't have any items geared for men.  Can anyone give me ideas of items used for men? Presently, the thing that comes to mind are hats.

     

    Thanks!

      This is hard, but I think hats, koozies, soft coolers, small liquor bottles, and maybe beach toys (beach balls, paddles, that kind of thing) are all good ideas.  Golf balls if your resort/destination has golfing?

          Hmmm. We did playing cards... the favours are bubba kegs and small video cameras, so they are men-friendly... well, the oot items and favours are all together. Other than that, the small items are more women-geared. We also did t-shirts, but just for the dads and gm.

           

          Any other ideas? Maybe a bottle opener or something?

            Good post I didnt even think about ideas for guys... I do like the golf ball idea, or the video cameras are great ideas! Back to the drawing board.

              hehe, to be honest I didnt even think about making the guys bags different - We have a lot of couples attending and that bag will be geared more for the girl I guess, but for the single guys it is a good idea to put some "guy stuff".

                I included hats in the bags for the guys (sarongs for the ladies) I ordered the hats from Vistaprint and they just said "Jamaica 2012" with a picture of the same sunset I used on the canvas bags. I also inlcuded 2 keyrings in each bag. Both the keyrings had the Jamaican flag on it but I thought one was more geared for men and one for ladies. The one geared towards the guys was a nail clipper and a bottle opener. The one geared towards the women was a little flashlight and a bottle opener.


                I also ordered a case of Appleton Rum. (the bottles were MUCH larger than I expected them to be). I put 2 bottles in each bag; one for the male and one for the female. If they didn't whether anything in that bag at all was geared to them, they knew one of the bottles was for them!

                 

                Hope that helps!

                    I have a few rooms 3 to be exact that all all male and single. Blah what do I buy for these men? One room my dad and grandpa and one room 2 brothers another is my brother and a close family friend. I'm not buying them a bag to keep because I know they won't use it unless its like underarm or something and I would like to keep it to one bag per room- there going to end up with 2 water bottles and some playing cards lol
