I find the older boys so challenging. Girls are so easy...I made hairbows, nail polish, lip gloss, key fobs I made for the ones over 13. Boys, well they just throw me!

On our cruise this past summer (1st Disney cruise, loved it!!), there were two teen boys. I gave them a few movie boxes of candy as well as some glow necklaces. Can't go wrong giving candy to most teen boys and I figured they could wear the glow necklaces around the ship at night. Not that creative but I figured at least they'd like the candy!!

They won't think the necklaces were too feminine? I got some for the Tweens and have enough for the older boys.

Does anyone know about phone charms? What gender and age group likes those?

A lot of the smart phones don't have a hook area to loop the charms thru. They aren't like the old phones!!!

This FE gift has evolved over the 5 DCLs I have been on, but its a keepsake where I affix used stamps and/or coins of the countries we are visiting to a map of the itinerary of the sailing.

I generally acquire the coins / stamps on eBay. Stamps vs coins and the cost of each will boil down to the itinerary. For the western Caribbean, all countries were readily available and all were in expensive so I did both coins and stamps. For the repositioning, I wanted to do coins, but bulk Columbian and Aruba coins were hard to come by (and for that FE I think there were 125 participants) so I went with stamps only - and since Aruba is such a new country I had to get unused stamps from there... I think the Aruban stamps were 10x the price of all the other stamps combined.

This version has one coin and one stamp from each of the three countries we were supposed to visit (Cayman actually was cancelled due to weather). They are affixed to canvas board (in the past i just used card stock, but the canvas board is far more durable).

The intention of this FE is to be a lasting keepsake of the cruise...

Wow, you have a good memory. Weren't we next door neighbors on the EB Repo?

I did a roaming gnome on this cruise as well.

I also plagiarized (with permission) with and additional FE gift. Its a decal that can be affixed to glass (like on a car/truck).... ordered by a lady who makes these on ebay... super cheap and real nice...

These have a post that goes into the headphone jack. I'm in grad school and see them on the undergrads phones. I asked and they've shrugged their shoulders.
