I looked for those at BJ's a couple weeks ago and didn't find them.

Ou Target has Phineas and Ferb ones out right now for $1.00. Too big and bulky for me to bring accross country, but could be great for a local.

On our recent cruise, we gave printed can coozies to all the adults, along with an alcohol mini and a few laminated cards of DCL drink recipes (see below). For the kids, I had totes printed, and included some small trinket items that I got after Christmas last year of Disney characters (girls gift pictured below). I used a design from the magnet thread and had them printed.

Some of the best stuff we received...
candy for the show
candy or prepackaged food items from home states/countries
bubbles
pirate goodies for pirate night
glow sticks
card games (Uno, Crazy 8's)
DD got a coloring book with crayons
CD of some great Disney music

The important thing is to have fun!

I made 175 of these. They actually went pretty quickly, but I was covered in glitter by the time I was done They are magnetic bookmarks.



I also gave everyone a postcard,



and magnet,

I had a few girly party favors leftover that were given to the girls, along with some Halloween pencils, stickers, and tattoos.

The last thing in my baggie was a small Halloween hand sanitizer from Bath & Body Works, probably superfluous, since we had the "cleanest hands in the world" with handi-wipes at every meal.

We got some great stuff. Handmade bookmarks, coasters, a hand painted towel. An incredible handmade bag with our last name embroidered on one side and a Disney ship on the other. Candy, candy, candy (it was Halloween!), card games, tattoos, stickers, pencils, pens, crayons, and on and on!

Hi Jennifer - I loved your stuff. The bookmarks were very cool - something I never would have thought of. I agree we got a lot of really great stuff - it was so much fun coming back to the room to see what new surprises were waiting.

I have a question as to what you would prefer to receive as a gift. I am desperately trying to come up with ideas. I think I am going to try and make some pendents for the women/teen girls. What would you prefer to have on a pendent you receive? A picture of the ship, DCL logo, or Disney general like a Mikey profile/picture/silhouette? I want to make something someone would want to wear off the ship, at home as well.

Thanks for your input.

Your stuff was adorable. And by the way, the hand sanitizer? Not superfluous at all. I took it with us when we went off the ship and made my kids use it after picking up and petting the sea turtles at the Sea Turtle farm in Grand Cayman!

Thanks, they really were easy to make. The most tedious part was peeling the backing off the adhesive magnets.

Morgan LOVES her little red purse! She brought it with us to Key West. Unfortunately, her Mickey pendant came apart

Oh good, I'm so glad it was useful!

Thanks everyone who played in our group. I had such a fun time getting stuff together and making things!

Speaking for myself, any of those would be great! A little reminder of the cruise as opposed to a "general" Disney thing I think would be wonderful. Have fun!

I was at our local COSTCO this week (CT) and saw Princess and Cars playdo packs. I believe there were 16 in each for 14.99.

Another Idea for those who need one.

I purchased these pens (personalized with what I wanted) from Discount Mugs (online). Typically bulk orders require a 250 minimum...these pens required only a 100 minimum order and were super inexpensive. At the time I ordered, we had around 85-90 folks in our exchange. Thankfully Discount Mugs sent about 120 pens so I had enough to give out to the later comers to our exchange!

In another post, my Photobucket pictures were not showing up for everyone. Not sure if that is the case here also, so reposting the picture from Shutterfly. Hope this works!
