Thanks! That's where I got them - right out of the dollar section. Added a bit of bling and VOILA! Mickey notecards! Quite easy. I tied them up in ribbon and put them inside a plastic baggie so they don't get damaged. I am trying to keep all my FE stuff together in one place - sort of pre-packing. I have a few items that I'm going to put together once onboard. The "pirate decrees" - I made my own but used the ideas on here - I'll just pack those flat and bring rubber bands/ties with me.

I hand pianted (not so well on some) mickey heads on the side of the dice with 1 dot, decorated the dice holder and then included some games along with balnk paper that could be played with the dice. I also made pens to match.








Love this idea! What did you use for the dice container?

Teen boy FE gifts

I've searched the thread for FE gifts for boys age 16+ and have come up with pirate medallion, candy and glow balls (not sure if I've seen those).

Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Many thanks

For the teen boys in my group (over 14) I got foldable water bottles, like this http://vapur.us/?gclid=CKfv3fHc1LECFUcbQgodUyUAqA
from the 99 Cent Store. I struggled to figure out something for that age.

Thanks. Just after posting I saw somewhere else about using a water bottle and I thought about using a regular one and stuffing it with candy! Two gifts in one

Anyone looking for an easy FE, the Dollar Tree has small (locker sized) magnetic white boards which include attached pen with eraser for $1. We added some Mickey and the gang stickers also from Dollar Tree (50 stickers - 4 pages in a pack) and they turned out super cute! We made these for our own two doors (FE is finished), but I thought I would pass it on for someone looking for a stateroom gift.

We put together a few different items for our FE gift. One is a pirate bookmark and they are turning out so cute! I used my cricket last night to cut out the base and "Donald's" anchor - then I put Riddles on one side and the answers on the other. I have to take them over to be laminated today and then I'll punch & ribbon then. My husband actually helped me put them together last night which I was totally shocked and was so not expecting! It's certainly not a difficult craft - he's just not the crafty type at all.

He went shopping with me too on Sunday and we picked out some ship shaped foam and some Disney chipboard cutouts which we are making into door magnants. We added a little bit of Mickey/Pirate to the mix and I think they're going to turn out really cute. I lettered some with "Disney" or "Fantasy" but I didn't have enough to do each one with. Without last names, I can't really put the family name on it so I'm just working with what I got.

if you think some colors are "girly" then you can dye some black or blue.

This will be first FE...and I'm not sure on the equitte. If doing something like a sling bag, do you do one for each person in the cabin? And do you only deliver one gift per cruise?

I would only do one per cabin.

If there are any kids in the cabin, you could always add something small for them.

Recent cruisers - do you agree?

I am getting ready to buy supplies for my FE gifts and wanted to check with recent cruisers and see if this is true -- in your recent FE did you get multiple emergency / necessities kits? If so, could you give me an idea of the number - say, out of 25 gifts, 3 were kits? Did you think this was too many? What did you do with all the kits - will you use them all or end up keeping one and throwing away the others or giving them away?

Although I'm in the camp that you can never have too many (spread them around - put one in car, medicine cabinet, swim bag, diaper bag, traveling bag, etc.) and I'd like to think my kit will be unique, I don't want to make something unoriginal or not useful...

Thanks so much!

Shea -

Personally, we loved getting them. We received 4 in our group of 35 but they were all a little different.
