I got my immodium and tylenol at Office Max! It was BY FAR the cheapest that I found it (much cheaper than minimus or all travel sizes.com). It was $17 for 36 packs of Immodium AD and $13 for 50 packs of Tylenol extra strength.

If you know someone who sells AVON, ask them to purchase a bunch of the samples for you (Skin So Soft, Lotions, sunscreens, etc). The sizes are perfect and they get them for a great price. My Mom sells it so I just told her how many of everything I needed and when they were on special she would order things.

I found a whole box of 24 2oz bottles of sunscreen on eBay for about $15 - I also bought some picture albums with a starfish on eBay too - they were like $1.25/piece - I would check there (it's like my fave place other than here!! )

I never would have thought either! But when I thought it through... companies provide medication so that their employees don't go home sick!

I think I'm the only person who is doing the gift bags a little different. We have close to 50 people joining us in Jamaica. Everyone is coming throughout a 2 week span. We are going to deliver the gift bags to everyone before the trip.(Week before) That way people do not double up on supplies.ex. Sunscreen. Also, we are including a letter/book explaining the wedding plans/time reception(booze cruise), resort maps, guest information ect.. That way people can plan to go on excurisons/golf ect... before the vacation. In the gift bags I've included

Sunscreen, Aloe Burn Gel, Silk Fans, Golf Combo Packs, Golf Balls, Hand Sanitizers, Travel Wipes, Tynelol, Rolaids, Travel Band Aids, Cotton Swabs, Manicure Sets, Bottle openers, Tide to Go Pens, Lint Brushes, Luggage Tags, Scope, Gum, Tic Tacs, Snack Packs, Single Drink Mixes, Memo Pads, Pens, Disposable Cameras, Disposable Razors, Travel Mirrors, Thermal Mugs, Shot Glass, Playing Cards, Luau Rubber Duck Soap,Lip Balm.

 

Also, have M&M's in our wedding colors that have our names, wedding date, Jamaica, and Fun in the Sun imprinted on them as reception favors.

 

Don't know if this will help, but everything was pretty cheap. I love E-Bay!!

I bought packets of excedrin, pepto and sunburn relief pacs on amazon.com today. They were a little cheaper than minimus.biz. I also bought some stuff on ebay like personalized koozies. And I bought a ton of stuff that was flip flop themed, hibiscus, and beach themed at oriental trading co. They have personalized wedding tins full of mints. They were only 24 for $20. And are so cute.

 

Since all of my guests are booking through my travel agent, I'm going to get everyone's travel info (tickets) and give out the bags with that. This way I don't have to lug all the stuff down.
