      Hey I just have a question about OOT bags. Did you guys put different things in the bags that were for guys, or were all the bags identical? I was just thinking about the candles I'm buying, but I don't think the men will really want a candle. Any ideas of something I could put in their bag instead?? Everything I'm thinking of seems to be too girly.....

      thanks

          There is another thread about this topic somewhere, but one of our possible "manly" items for our bags will be cigars. I do remember that some people created "man whore" bags that included stuff like condoms and funny stuff like that. Also, small bottles of tequila or beer if your resort isn't an AI might be an idea......

            I think that is a great idea...I had the same issue because all of our guests are completely different and I didn't want to put a bunch of random stuff in them. This is why I haven't decided on this part yet.

            I had thought about a gift cert for excursion or something...but FI didn't like it...I don't think he realizes that I was planning on spending about $25 per bag anyway...

                  Hi JWOLFE! So I was wondering, with the tylenol, advil, tums, etc.... where did you find individual packettes? Another thught I had for the bags was packettes of hangover or Emergen-C. I thought about gift certs myself actually, but we are having a big group (over 50) and the amount I could afford for ech wouldn't add up to much! Very cool you can do that for yur guests!

                    Oh, and did you get that biodegradable sunscreen they say to wear in the water there? If so, where did you get this and how big are your bottles. Thanks!

                      Hey there! I haven't actually gotten the items yet.....it took me this long just to get a list together from other threads that I read. However, a lot of posters have been directing us to get the individual packets from Minimus.com. They do seem to have a lot of really cool, travel-sized items at reasonable prices. I do like your hangover packet idea! I may have to add that to my list! Thanks! And believe me, if we had as big a group as you're having, we wouldn't be giving the gift certs. We are just have 25 guests!
