Any suggestions good (cheap) stuff to put in the welcome bag?

Recommended Posts

I can't think of anything except sunscreen and chap stick!

Anyone got any creative Ideas?

Also, how should I give them out?

Can the maids put them in the rooms?

Will the front desk give them out?

Will Chandyn handle it (probalbly not from what I read in the forum, lol)?

Everyones arriving on different days so I'm not sure how to handle it. I just don't want to be in charge of it!shots.gif

As far as cheap stuff ... I am adding 2008 pocket calendars from Oriental Trading (flip flop covers) and AVON flip flop/hibiscuc emery boards (less than $0.50 each). We are makinmemade starfish and flip-flop soaps from candy molds ... and individual packets of Imodium, Advil, Pepto, sunscreen,wet-naps, etc.

We are having informal cocktail receptions each night, just at the lobby bar, and handing them out to the new arrivals that way.

Many of us made postcards through vista print. You can get 100 for about $10 with the specials. Try this link www.vistaprint.com/minicatalog

We got a high resolution image from someone else on the forum to use for the picture. I have a post in the DIY forum called "making a vista print postcard" with the details.

 

There are also some spanish to english phrase lists on the forum. I plan on printing them on cute paper & putting them in the OOT bags.

 

Often the front desk will hand out your OOT bags, but there is usually a fee.

I am giving out my travel mugs at the welcome dinner we're having the day before the wedding. If you are having a get together like this before the wedding you could give them out then?

I bought some inexpensive beach tote bags from Garden Ridge (I think they were $1.50 each) and I'm putting a photo album, chrome luggage tag with Jamaica 2008 engraved on it, sunscreen, personalized lip balm, and maybe a paper fan or paper parasol umbrella in each one. Then just for the women, I'm putting in a spa set that has a loofa sponge, wooden hair brush/mirror set, and few other items. I wanted to do customized beach towels, but getting them there is beginning to seem impossible!

Putting cups or travel mugs in the bags is also common. I recently painted some cheap tumbler mugs with our guest's names. Search around the links Ann gave you. You'll get tons of ideas.

I just posted my list somewhere, so you should do an advanced search for it to see prices... but I have:

Travel Mugs, playing cards, suntan lotion, lip balm with 15 SPF, gum, shout wipes, gold bond, first aid kits, OFF wipes, Spanish phrases book, candy bracelets, imodium AD, tylenol, carabeners, beach balls, and beach buckets.

I picked up travel size sunscreen at Walmart..
