Follow up, Any suggestions on how much to spend on FE?
Really it's totally up to you. I've seen posts where people spent a lot or a little or made things that obviously took a LOT of time (and sometimes money). It's honestly the thought that counts and the fun in finding new goodies in your Fish Extender. If you don't have a lot of money to put into it, so long as you put Thought into it, you're all good. There are threads on here with pictures of the things people have done to give you some awesome ideas!!

Have you found your cruise group yet? Once you get on there, you'll see if they've started a FE list yet!

What are typical gifts that people put in the FEs? I'm trying to sell this idea to DH and I have a feeling that he's going to balk at me wanting to spend $100 on gifts for other people on a 4 nt cruise...

Can I put pins in FEs? Do people like to get those? I haven't booked my cruise yet and it doesnt have a group yet either, otherwise, I would ask there....

Does anyone know if there is a FE group for the April 7,2014 Magic cruise? I haven't had any luck finding one.

We got pins in our FE and my kids (18, 15, 11) loved them. My DD even traded with the Captain during Officer Pin Trading, for the pin which is now her favorite. They seemed like they were a hit with our FE group.

Good to know! We have a LOT of pins and we are not necessarily attached to all of them, so that would be a good option for us and a good sell for my DH. lol Thanks!!

Okay, I am want some feedback for my FE gifts that I am giving on my June 2, 2014 Wonder cruise. So, if you are in that group and do not wish to have the surprise spoiled, I would stop reading now.



I was thinking about for the adults in the group, a deck of playing cards with a few pages of different games' rules (one pack per stateroom) plus magnets made from theme park cutouts (1 per adult or maybe 2 per stateroom). For the younger set, I was planning on purchasing a set of disney stickers, like those 5-6 sheet booklets from Micheal's, for each of them plus rubber band bracelets from Party City for the girls and temp tattoos for boys. I am going to try to crochet Micky-shaped coasters for each person, regardless of age, as well.


Here are my concerns: We have kids in our group ranging in age from 3 and a half to 17. Would my gifts suit all of those age groups? The biggest concern I have is if my gifts are "enough?" I don't have a lot of money so I am trying not to break the bank with this gifts and, while I could attempt to throw in another hand-crafted item, I think I will have my hands full with the coasters and magnets.

Any feedback at all would be immensely appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.

Sounds great to me! And you could get tatoos and give for all ages of kids to prevent sibling rivalry and the teen girls may or may not enjoy the stickers as much. I would love the coaster pattern for myself if you would care to share.

I crocheted all the FEs last time and it was my favorite FE so far! For the under 1 crowd I made crocheted hats- Minnie Mouse for girls, Micky for boys. All other girls got yellow headbands with red trim and a Micky head on it. All kids got eyepatches, pink for girls, black for boys. All guys got a Mickey drawstring "pouch". I created my own patterns and honestly I ended up making so many more for gifts for passengers, crew etc
