For tween/teen boys on my cruise last week, I did the ice cream thing. I found 2 pack ice cream bowls/spoons at Dollar Tree. I left them as a 2 pack and filled them with full size pack of M&Ms, peanuts, small pack of Oreo type cookies, small packets of nutella, and a few small pieces of other candy. It was a bit bulky but only had 3 in that age group. Hope it went over well :-)

FE Ideas

Hi! I'd like to give a "Location Cheat Sheet" card set for the Disney Fantasy as my FE (It tells everyone where everything is (restrooms, pools, etc.). Does anyone have a set already made and posted somewhere (don't want to re-invent the wheel if I don't have to)? Thanks!!

There is one made, and I have to try to remember who did it. I have mine copied, laminated, and cut for our cruise already. Let me see if I can figure out where to get it...

Editing...it was posted by someone in my cruise Facebook group. Not sure if she posted it on here. Have you searched for it?

Thanks! I think we are in the same FB Cruise group! I will try to find it! Take care!

Edited to say-We ARE on the same cruise! I don't want to knowingly do the same gift someone else is doing, so I can find something else. Thanks for the referrals to other FB pages! Take care!

There is one just for Disney graphics, and one for Fish Extender ideas, and there is a specific one to our cruise as well. Look around and see what you can find!

I used my Disney store email discount and bought a bunch of cute Disney reusable tote bags- they have so many! Villains, toy story, Rapunzel, lightening McQueen.... And many more! I also went to Michaels craft store and bought the Disney $1 tattoos (25 in each packet- you can split up if you want), I also bought the $1 glow stick cans at Michaels. They are things they can use and throw away- they don't have to worry about taking them home and finding room in their bag

Any ideas would be helpful.
TIA
I think we are on the same cruise. I joined a FE group (my first one) and I;m on google docs. I dont have facebook so I dont know if there is a seperate group for facebook or if its the same as google docs. I to am a little overwhelmed with such a large group. I want to be able to give a nice gift but with that many cabin, having a hard time thinking of something.

we also just hit the over 30 cabin mark in our FE exchange group (July 20 Fantasy).Personally I am doing 2 gifts because I am hanging 2 seperate FEs. We are doing a giftbag per cabin for each FE gift... kinda like a goody bag with something for everyone. I tried to do some things that were associated specifically from my hometown. So I don't totally spoil the surprise for any of my fellow FE I will be somewhat vague...

FE 1
A "small" general cabin gift (think hanging and good smells) from a well known local local business

Bookmarks ( 1 per each ) I had made from overnightprints.com that showcases a local attraction and tells a bit about our hometown

if there any ages 2-21 in the cabin I also included some light up fun (different types for the age groups).

I bought some baby safe bath squirts toys for the under 2

FE2
A craft gift for the cabin

A small wearable souvenir for each cruiser over 5 that we had made by some internet company (can't remember now)

small pirate themed toys for the kids

Wow, I feel like such a slacker with the gift idea I was going to do. My wrist better hea; quickly so I can start making stuff. How to do you manage to pack everything? I am an overpacker and dont want to be fined for to heavy luggage and dont want to pay for another bag

Ok my kids are all into duct tape crafts, so I have started making duct tape bracelets... Do you think this would be a good FE gift for kids?? Of course I would use disney themed duct tape... Princesses, Mickey, Minnie, etc

I think so! I've seen some of the things kids can make with duct tape and they're super cute!

I am giving a cabin gift, I bought a tote bag with a Canada flag and put an assortment of magnets, playing cards, pens, stickers, and key chains all Canada themed.

For the kids 3-9 I bought a FarmVille plush inside has a card game like memory, old maid and go fish.

Stuck on the teens and babies!

I was feeling guilty because normally we've done handmade FE gifts but this time, I'm just not feeling up to that.

I went searching and found a couple of wedding websites that have wedding favours and found a very cute set of beach themed cookie cutters (there are 4 in a box - a dolphin, a palm tree, a shell and a starfish). They come in a clear plastic box with a ribbon tie.

I am going to give one for each stateroom and then a some laminated cookie recipes (my best ones for rolled sugar cookies, gingerbread and shortbread plus a recipe for hard icing and soft butter icing). Those I'll punch a hole into the corner and put a key ring into it (and I'll make a cover page with the cruise date and ship on it - maybe use some disney stickers to decorate as well).

I'm very happy with that idea - it will let people relive a few cruise memories while baking some sweet treats!
