First of all, NO GIFT is too small. Notta one! This is all about the spirit of anticipation, fun, and excitment...not trying to win a prize for best gift given!! I assure you that things as small as candy, safety pins, and pirate eye patches are equally appreciated! I had a little survival bag with my main gift. Someone actually told me that they had forgotten to pack ponytail holders, so the ones I put in the baggie saved the week!

Personally, I like to know who got me what. I remember coming home and asking the group "Who gave out ____? It came in SO handy!/I LOVED it!" Revealing yourself is a personal choice though, but again, I encourage it! Remember, the "from" isn't about show-and-tell, rather it's to allow us to express our appreciation! For my tag I had address labels made that said something like the following:

Have a magical time on our
Double Dip Delight Cruise
~ Sept 27 - Oct 4, 2008 ~
Buckeye Gal


Since my DIS name is "Buckeye Gal", I had purchased labels with the OSU Block O logo on it. I had my gifts in little goodie bags, so I just put the label on the bag.

As you said, don't create a new project now that is going to stress yourself out. If you want to do tags, you could just print off a little tag on copy paper and stick it on the luggage tag with tape!

I had stickers made........I did it at Wal Mart.com......I think it was $4for about 20. It was fum creating my own personal sticker with an image that reflected the gift and then putting my Dis Name on it...I think I did 3 stickers..which seemed expensive..so, I spread it out over a couple of weeks...$4 here and there seemed better than spending about $14 at one time just on stickers..

I agree I loved knowing who gave the FE gift...my regret was not meeting the group before hand...because still I wish I had been able to put a face with the name on most of the gifts.

I made my own little tags to tuck in the bags. They had our dis name, our names AND a little picture of us on it! Nothing exciting, but it did the trick!

I like the idea of a picture of you on the tag! I often "Wonder"ed if I was passing by a fellow Dis FE passenger...having a picture as a reference is a great idea...I'll have to remember that one! Thanks!

Good ideas! I like putting the DIS name , real name & the photo. Maybe Wal-Mart could print a photo of us on a sticky label??? Do you then piuck up the labels in the store or do they get mailed to you?

I picked mine up..only because we're soooo close to a Wal Mart..but, I bet like most things you could have it mailed. The labels they offer (and other websites have them too) you could have choose from different color borders which is what I did with my first couple of orders..and I added some text too..it wasn't until the last order that I saw that I could use the whole picture without borders..FYI

I really like the sticker idea. I will probably use a shipping address label or some other label from the office store ( Avery 3110 thru 3113 are all round sticker labels) and put a picture on it too.

Another great tip from the people here at the Disboards.

I did meet a few fellow Disers in some odd places - met a couple in the elevator and a family in the Bahamas. A picture on their gifts would have helped put a face with the gift. With another cruise in 4 months, I need to think of a new gift (the water bottles were too much).

You're doing just fine!!!

Jennifer, your luggage tag is fine just as it is -- you don't need to add stuff!!! The idea is not to break the bank. We got all kinds of stuff and every single thing was appreciated no matter how small or how inexpensive. No one "cheaped" out -- every thing was wonderful, and your tags will be much appreciated.

What you CAN do to say who it's from is maybe get a twist-tie and a small tag. Then people can say thank you on the boards but still be able to use the tags you made for them. They'll be much loved and enjoyed!!

Bumping for other great ideas. I am making something for my upcoming cruise on March 28th, but you will have to wait until I return on April 4th for a photo. I don't want to spoil the surprise!

Now you've got me even more excited about our cruise, waiting to see what you do.

I think I'm going to spend this weekend trying to come up with some ideas.

Any others willing to post pictures? I can't post mine until after my March 28th cruise. I don't want to spoil the surprise.

I don't have any pictures yet, but my DW is making Mickey Head silhouette ear-rings out of seed beeds (very tiny glass beads). She has them on silver dangle backs and is making them in a myriad of colors.

Once I get pictures I'll post them here.

She hasn't decided what to make for the males yet.

How lucky for your fellow cruisers! No chance your sailing on the Magic this Thanksgiving?
