BEST FE gifts for ADULTS ?

this is my first time doing a FE and it is driving me crazy !! Especially since I read the thread about how people will never do them again because its all cheap junk . I am really trying to get things that others will not toss in the trash as they exit the boat.

Kids are easy -- but what about adults ???

This was my favorite to receive also, but I have read on here that one cruise some people had theirs stolen & the biggest concern was high school aged kids taking them. I could definitely see that happening.

I am still enjoying our gifts from the summer. Of course the candy is long gone.

Besides magnets, we are still using our Mickey shaped chalkboard and the tile coasters.

If you want a simple but you never have enough of item, order customized ink pens. You will smile in remembrance every time you need one.

A few of my favorites from our cruise:

CDs (just make sure the CD actually burned...we rec'd a blank one )

a small cookbook compiled with recipes from the area in which you live

My favorite was a check book cover. Designed with a picture of our ship and some Mickey/Minnie clip art too...very cute and original.

I got several different things in mine like a little bottle of booze, a nice little frame with a Disney ribbon and bow stuck on it, an emergency travel kit that consisted of bandaids, wet wipes, kleenex and little mini post its with a pencil and I also got a tote bag.

We received a vinyl tote bags from the Disney Store. Great for taking your purchased liquor boxes off the ship.

The cheque book cover idea is lovely, but remember that you may have international participants in your FE. Whilst we would always be grateful for anything we receive, cheque book covers would not fit our cheque books here in the UK, as they are a different size and shape. Indeed, cheques are used less and less these days here.

I loved the hand made bags in Disney themed fabric. I use one for my kindle and used another to "wrap" a Christmas present. I give M&Ms since they are made in my home town and, I hope, pretty widely liked.
