I participated in FE exchange our cruise Sept. 27, 2009

Gave younger kids crayons, small coloring book, sandmolds, and candy.
Bigger kids got candy and paperback book. Bigger girls got candy, paperback book, and mini pedicure set. Adults got playing cards, mini scissors, and candy.

We recieved travel first aid kit, highlighters, notepad, magnet, and some pirate themed items.

Agree w/ previous poster. I brought a 8 1/2 x 10 photo matte with highlighters in a plastic bg and another bag with a tshirt with highlighters to request character autographs. I left candy for the characters as a thank you for their appreciated hard work.

I buy these glow bracelets for the kids regularly and they hold up very well. I do not see any reason you could not buy them now for a cruise in January.

We are first time cruisers doing the Transatlantic in September. I've done lot's of reading about FE gifts and have decided on a few things, some crafty, some not. Can't reveal them now right now,
But here are some idea's that I came across in my research -
Local food / wine / sweets
Local mascots / native animal toys
Cruise specific magnets / postcards / Calendars
Buckets and spades
Key rings
Bottle openers
Drink bottle
Magic towels (the ones where you put them in water and they expand)
Lanyards
Pirate bandana's / eye patches

Hope this helps someone

We participated in an exchange on our last cruise 10-18-2009, the theme that the group came up with( thru the cruise meets forum) was some thing from your home state.
In NC, as what we gave by stateroom, a small bottle of Texas Pete Hot Sauce, small indiv btl of Moonshine( for the adults). a picture that we took from the mountains between Tennessee and NC. Then we came up with some small cutesy stuff for the kids.
We found out boys and girls and ages, then planned little make up things for the girls, tattooes for the boys.

Don't know about the other poster, though...

Keep the ideas coming! I love it!
Here's a link to a picture:

I hope nobody from our cruise Dec 11, 2010 is reading this thread, if you are don't read this post, please.

But I found a lot of great Disney theme Silly Banz at Walmart, also. Princesses (2 different sets), Mickey and Friends, Toy Story in the jewelry dept. as opposed to the Toy dept. About $4 for 24 ct.

If you are in the UK looking for FE ideas

Go to Home Bargains.

There is a lot of Disney items reduced. Just got some great little Mickey Ears gifts for 29p.

Sainsburys also have Character areial toppers for the car.

Aldi also had some Disney things for kids.
