Fish Extender Gifts

I'd like to hear what type of gifts are received in the FE's. Our group hasn't decided to do the exchange, so I want to be able to tell them what its all about. Thanks!

We have gotten candy, stickers, tattoos and more. On the ten day Wonder my DD and I handed out CD's with music that you hear on the cruises. It was well received.

You can do trinkets from your state (such as magnets) or a "sea-oriented" gooody from someplace like Oriental Trading. We got fish keychains and dolphin safes from OT - really cute and inexpensive. You can always do a Tootsie roll pop as well!

No one cares so much about the gift as they care about the fun of giving and coming back to their room to find something/anything in their Fish Extender!

I found little treasure chests at Target and filled them with gold wrapped candies and pirate tattoos- we handed them out on Pirate night. It was fun. We received goody bags with disney stickers, candy, pencils, etc. and we got lots of magnets! My kids loved it!

On our cruise we are bringing something that would represent where we are from. Since we are from all over the world, we thought that would be fun. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone brings!

This sounds fun, but honestly, I can't think of much I could bring! The only thing my town is know for is chicken dinners, and I can't bring fried chicken with hot rice on the ship! I could bring Buckeyes, but the real thing probably wouldn't pass customs, and the choc/peanut butter ones would never make it past my family!

Being from Tennessee, I brought a little tiny bottle of Jack Daniels (made in Lynchburg) for the adults and Goo Goo Clusters (made in Nashville) for the kids.

Looks like you need a whole other suitcase just to bring all that loot home! I am as concerned about not overpacking with all the stuff to take too...DH will not be happy if I pack a whole bag of just trinkets to give away!
