Which would you prefer to receive?
1) 5 custom luggage handle covers - so that you can easily identify your bags in the warehouse at the end of the trip, or
2) an embroidered tote bag - to bring home all of the FE goodies you will receive on your cruise.

I promise to share pictures of both after I decide.

Thanks!
I love the idea of the luggage handle covers as well. I work for an airline and people are forever calling us because they picket up somebody else's luggage by mistake as it looked like their luggage. This will help to make the luggage stand out.

How about going on my cruise Jan 2011 and making *luggage handle covers*. Very unique and very useful.

Thanks for your help!

Luggage handle covers, it is!

I'm off to the fabric store... I guess I'll still make a tote, too, just for us.

As soon as I have a decent sample, I'll post some pics.

Thanks again!

Please do post a picture, I am very curious to what luggage handle covers look like? I don't think I've seen one???

I am starting on my FE's now for our WB transatlantic in September.
I have a cabin gift + girls + ladies organised, just on the lookout for men and boys. Looking at personalised stubby coolers? Not very original though, any ideas?

Oh, I wonder what you call them?
I just googled it, I think you might call them koozies???
They are a can holder that keeps the drink cool.

How wonderful! Did you make it by yourself?

WOW PJ ... I love this. I hope we are in the same FE group in September.


I have most of my FE gifts worked out .... just not much of a clue for the men. Any ideas for good male FE gifts gratefully received.

Hey Sarah, I posted the same question a couple of days ago. The men and older boys are hard!
I have done the young girls (unless the numbers change), have organised a couple of cabin things, am about to start sewing the ladies, but those men are difficult....to say the least!
Must remember not to post any pictures on this thread since there are a few of us from the WB lurking around!

This is super cute! You could maybe put a large coloured paperclip at the top to hold a photo? Or maybe leave it as a paperweight?
Either way, It is really cool!

Oh my goodness - i am so excited by the thought of a FE Exchange and i haven't even booked my cruise yet - i have even started noting down ideas of what i can do LOl - everyone has made some gorgeous things. Just a quick question - do you exchange gifts everyday or once a week? How do you know which day to do it? Also if i book the med cruise for August i may have to get off the ship 2 days early - would i still be able to join the exchange group?
