fun trip gifts for women

Hi all,

Heading to WDW with 4 ladies in April. We are all mid-twenties. I was hoping to get a fun (small) gift for each of them, just a little something to give everyone at the airport that we could use or wear during the trip. Looking to keep it small (under $10/person). Some thoughts that I have had: make T-shirts, matching PJ shorts/pants, silly tiaras for our princess character meal, Disney water bottles or cups. I am not sold on any of these ideas. Any other input would be great.

Thanks!

What about buying everyone a set of Mickey ears and customising them with gems and other girly things? Matching ankle bracelets? Buying nail polishes and gems and having matching Disney manicures? I can think of other things but these were the most girly ideas I had!

Glitter and Sparkle

during decades of trips to WDW, I always get compliments and "where did you get that?" from my costume jewelry that has anything to do with crowns or princessy-type designs. I LOVE the tiara idea! or I've recently seen pink sequin baseball caps that sparkle like mad Look over DollarTree store inventory or Oriental Trading.com. Very cheap but very desirable! Belle's stuff is huge in MK, so anything that is gold and/or contains a rose will be coveted

So the new idea is to make Mickey Ears. I found a great tutorial for making the Mickey ears, then I plan on customizing them and making them princess-y (each pair themed to a different princess). I won't be starting them for a few weeks, but I will definitely post the final results if it works out. I would love any input from the crafty types out there

I am making very simple goody bags for our relatives that we will be meeting at WDW. This is what they're getting:
Water bottle drink mix singles
cute socks
kleenex purse size
Jolly ranchers-lolly pops-nips
granola bars
little debbies (novelty for my canadian relatives)

Walmart sells these tiny handheld fans with a water reservoir for about a buck each.
Rain ponchos from the dollar store
Key chain w/ sanitizer or sunblock
Those citronella coils you wear on your wrist (noseums are no joke!)

Not sure if I am allowed to post a link or not. Suburban Mom has a blog and a youtube video with a description. They look great and not too tricky.

Thanks for all of the help, everyone
