These are the coasters that I made and gave out...of course I had to keep a set for myself

We were on your cruise and love these (and everything else) my coasters are on my bar right now. Thank you! We had a very creative bunch cruising with us. I am still amazes at what everyone made and gave. Getting so many ideas for our cruise next year.

I am trying to gather info first, but it is cheaper to buy one than to pay to have my stuff done. TIA.
My DD made bookmarks for our cruise and we used pouches that were 8.9inches X14.4 inches (legal document sized) I think we fit 6 bookmarks per sheet and our laminator says NOT to cut any sheets before putting them through or they may jam. DD then used eyelets in the holes and ribbons. She was pretty proud of her 9 year old self. Now I am looking at all kinds of stuff to laminate for our next cruise

I love the ideas

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful ideas. The only problem is most of you are 100x more crafty than me. I would love to make some of these things but I promise they would not look like this, but it is fun to look at them. Again, thanks.

Best to All

We just got back from our fabulous cruise. Here are the gifts I made/brought for our FE group. I hope everyone enjoyed them. I recieved some very neat gifts from our group, there are some extremely talented people out there.


I made a mat that would fit in an 8x10 frame that people could put two of thier own photos in, it has the date of our cruise in one little square:





There were only three girls 5 and under in our group, so I made them a hair bow. I was pretty excited when I saw one of the little girls wearing hers later on in the cruise:








And then for the older kids, I was stumped, so I gave them a gift that represented where we live. We come from a wet, cold, climate so we have many slugs running around here. One of our local candy shops makes a chocolate slug, I know it is kinda gross, but I thought the kids might like it, and they are pretty yummy too.

When I saw the picture, I thought "why would someone give a gift of a half decomposed banana?" But then I read your description and it was so much better. That's awesome. I would have loved to get a chocolate slug!

And your photo mats are beautiful.

The bows are adorable! I really love the matte too!

If my 9 year old can make bookmarks I have faith you could too. We just cut paper into strips and then she decorated them with Disney stickers. I printed small labels to put on the back that had the ship name and cruise date and then we laminated them put holes and ribbon. There you go. I found a website that had a real easy "how to draw Mickey Mouse" I thought I would laminate that with a blank space at the bottom for kids to practice drawing and get some dry erase markers to go with and maybe a tick tack toe board on the other side. Super easy.

How many people are in the typical FE group? I'm seeing people make multiple gifts for one cruise and fancy things such as t-shirts and personalized tote bags!

There's twenty some staterooms and 138 people total in the FE group for my cruise and I'm just wondering if that's more than the usual FE group.

There's no way I could do all that for 138 people!!!!

My wife wanted me to ask where you found the supplies (ribbons and mickey buttons) for your hair bows? She absolutely loves them.

From the great PNW??? DD used to take those as gifts from here when in college in Louisiana...always had to give an explanation of why snail did not have shell
