Goodie bag ideas......

Recommended Posts

Howdy everyone!

 

I am looking for ideas for a goodie bag items for my 3 "kids" 20-22. We are going on HOTS in July.

I just want to make them a little something celebratory. So far I have Boca clips, magnetic clips, highlighter, wrapped candies.

 

Thanks for the help!

When sharing a cabin with others we each bring a "bag" of sorts, usually cloth with a closure, to keep our valuables in for the safe. That way none of us need to search through everything in order to find what we are looking for. We just pull out our own "bag." And get what we need. We call the bags our "safe sacks."

Since you'll be on Harmony, what about a toy harmonica from a dollar bin? Nothing of use, but would make for funny pics with them all.

For the kids 'of age', hangover cure and sunscreen that is higher than SPF5 ;)

I see someone mentioned lanyards which is one of my FAVORITE things to put in goodie bags..I also like hand sanitizer with clips for guys and mini bottles for the girls, small bathroom deodorizer spray or clips, mini flashlight and the biggie...a small 2-3 outlet plug ....I am excited for you :D

Magnetic hooks (to hang lanyard and other such things on). I brought some on my first cruise a couple of weeks ago - we always new where our seapasses were.

 

Also - passport cases/covers/wallets if they don't have them.

A small battery-operated candle or tealights for the stateroom. Or a nightlight. Nice for safety at night and adds a bit of atmosphere. A box of mints, like Tic Tacs (available in a 24 pack on Amazon). :)

At that age I would say food, coupons for alcoholic drinks if they are paying for themselves, cash for the ports, tervis, sunglasses or snorkeling gear. Girls are a bit easier...the dry erase boards are a great idea. I like an air freshener for my room. Lotion, slippers/socks, lip gloss lol. Good luck! I love the idea of goodie bags. I'm sure they will love whatever you come up with.

Note, you might want to give them the goodie bags ahead of time, so that they don't end up purchasing/packing the stuff that you are also giving them... we did something similar for my Brother in Law and his GF, but gave it to them at Christmas (2 months before our trip)

Thanks everyone for the ideas! I'm trying to think of a way to get the goodie bags their cabin before they get in. Any ideas?

If you have access to the Diamond or Suite Concierge, speak to them. For our daughter's wedding on Liberty, we were able to arrange to meet with the deck supervisor prior to staterooms opening, and put the goody bags in each of the guest staterooms.

Thank you so much Bob. This will be my first cruise as Diamond. I will try meeting the deck supervisor.

 

I'm trying to make this as memorable as possible as you never know how long they will want Mom to tag along on vacations......:loudcry:

How about small binoculars?

 

This is a great idea! Think I'll do the same for my kiddos when we cruise in April.

Great idea! Highlighter for the cruise compass, maybe a gift card for a specialty restaurant, Ben n Jerrys or Starbucks, a water bottle to take ashore, packages of nuts or chocolate.

I made a cruise bag for my Sister's first cruise in a backpack that she could use for excursions. Included things like the magnets, towel clips, insulated cup for coffee or cold drinks, sunscreen, aloe, small first aid kit (everything fit in a Ziploc baggie), lanyard, starbucks gift card, deck of playing cards, dollar store poncho, some empty ziplocs of all sizes, a few snacks that I knew she liked, shelf stable coffee creamer (she loves French Vanilla), a travel journal, post it notes, ink pens, highlighter, word search book, some dollar bills, battery operated tea light and some ear plugs knowing that I snore.

 

It sounds like a lot of stuff but it was all fairly small and would fit in a gallon Ziploc bag. She loved it. With the exception of the few liquids it's already flown with her on her cross country trip this Spring to San Francisco and has been repacked and awaits her next couple of trips this summer and cruise this fall.

A book on drink names since they are inexperienced with what to buy at the bar. Hangover tips, and medicine. For the 21 or above, a beverage package coupon. I guess I don't have anything. By that age, both of them got married, and by age 22 my eldest owned his own house. They all have been on their own vacations already so other than some advice, I just can't think of anything that I would do.

Shark bites gummy candy, goldfish crackers. Tide pen or shout wipes. Lanyard. I throw in a couple of drink umbrellas. Glow in dark bracelets from dollar store. May be easy to find each other? That being said, I have taken those onboard and never used them, I forget about them. Strong magnetic hooks for walls.

Oh yes, poo pourri!

 

I second this one. You can get tiny bottles, I can't remember where I found them though. Probably Amazon
