I'm trying to come up with ideas for the Welcome Gift Bags to be given out at the hotel. I know some snacks and water, but what else? I'd like to keep it small as there will be 30 or so bags, but i'd also like it to be of some significance. Any thoughts?
Re: Need ideas for the Welcome gift bags
The OOT bags are going to contain the usual goodies plus a bottle of beer for each person and a bottle opener with Ben's quote about beer tied to it. There's going to be a bookmark with a quote of his about learning. A penny with his quote and instructions to leave it on his grave. The wedding programs will have a Ben quote about marriage on the back. The guest book will have a note above it with a quote about wisdom and a request for our guests to leave their best advice on the pages with the (ballpoint) quill pen. (also, everything is deep red cardstock with "parchment paper" from Staples on top).
The STD's were titled Declaration of Independence....on second thought. The invites were the preamble of the Constitution about forming a more perfect union....what a good idea.
It took a while to get to this. We started with an America theme then 1776 and then finally we decided to rely on Ben.
You might wnat to try a tourist store downtown. You may not want to buy anything there but it may spark an idea.
You really don't need to go overboard with a ton of snacks and activities and such. The more you give, the more likely a lot of it will be thrown away

I disagree. Those things are very dated and take horrible pictures. most people have their cameras and IF they forgot one, they can go get a camera on their own. If I received a camera in an OOT bag, I may feel obligated to take wedding pictures for the couple.
