What was the coolest Fish Exchange gift that you gave or received?

Hi everyone! I am curious on the different gifts (that you were impressed with, or could use?) that you gave or received for FE.... Looking for some creative ideas- besides the typical stickers, candy, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks!

One of my favorite gifts was so simple, but such a great idea for adults!! We got 2 little bottles of hand sanitizer from the Bath and Body Works with one of the really cute little rubber holders that attaches it to your purse or backpack. Included in the bag was a travel hand lotion and it was all tied up beautifully with some red, black and white ribbons. It was fantastic!! We also got an excursion survival kit that included a first aid kit, hand sanitizer, pen, post it notes, toilet seat covers and a tide pen. It was awesome!!

My favorites are the custom/scrapbook like photo frames or mini scrapbooks to record or pictures/memories of our trip. We also received some magnets for our door. That was cool! And the foreign gifts (from our NON US group members) were pretty awesome too!

I have narrowed down our next FE to be some type of themed gift bag/basket such as Movie night, pirate night, or the survival type stuff!

Hey karajeboo! I was coming on here to get some ideas and to say THOSE were our favorite FE gifts and there they are LOL! Thinking of using your idea for our next cruise.

And did I read correctly that we can have our stuff shipped to our room on the cruise? That would be SO MUCH better than dragging around an extra suitcase, especially since we will most likely be flying this time.

If the above is true, please tell me how!

On our August 2012 NYC Magic Cruise, someone made an over-the-shoulder mini sling-bag that zips. It had my daughter's name and a picture of Mickey on the front. It was the perfect size to carry the wave phone and a few other odds and ends like chapstick, her KTTW and a pen. Since it could be worn diagonally over one shoulder and hanging at the opposite hip, it she didn't put it down and lose it. BEST FE GIFT EVER. I wish I knew who made them

We have participated in three FE Exchanges. My DH just loves it!!
A couple of my favorite things: a mouse pad with a picture of the Magic on it. It is my work mouse pad! A key chain made with beads that spell out I (heart) Disney Wonder... and many other things.

Can't tell what i am planning for our cruise to Alaska in just six weeks!! I want it to be surprise!!

oh - and someone else made a keyring attached to a strap made of mickey ribbon. Now, i'm not sure if it's intended purpose is how I use it, but I can actually slip my hand through the strap and that is how i carry my keys, rather than putting them in my pocket or bag. Makes life much easier.
