What did you put in your OOT bags?

I am looking for ideas of what people put in their OOT guest bags in Cincinnati. I was thinking some Esther Price candy, a bag of Husmans chips, and not sure what else!

    I would be careful with gift cards.  If your guests are in from OOT, they're probably going to be on a very tight schedule and may not be able to take advantage of it. :(  Keep the bags small so you don't have to fill them with as much.  Maybe include a Cincy magnet, a small can of Skyline (most Kroger stores have them I think), a bottle of Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce, buckeye candies...  You could even raid those brochure stands in hotels that have all the things to do in that area (maybe just grab a couple of the cool, non-tacky places).  Maybe even a post card or something with a short history of the city.  HTH

    We didn't do any cinci stuff, but if you contact this company you can get up to 70 free visitors guides for the city http://www.cincinnatiusa.com/Brochure/bulk.asp
    If we had had enough time before the wedding we would have put those in.

    The only Cincy-related item I used was Hussman Chips.  Previously for Christmas presents I gave my siblings baskets with a can of Skyline, Montgomery Inn BBQ sauce and LaRosa's spaghetti sauce, but I don't know that they really used any of it.

    In addition to the chips (which I found at Costco), I put in bottled water, granola bars, microwave popcorn (hotel rooms had a kitchenette), apples and clementines.

    We did two bottles of water, advil, tylenol, black&white cookies (NY), grippos potato chips (Cinti), nature valley granola bar, mints, and a few other things that I can't remember.
