I saw your makeup rolls on the FB page, I absolutely love that idea. I need to make one for myself!

Not So Crafty

Thanks, everyone, for posting these ideas. I have to admit that this string is making me a little nervous--I work a ton, and I am absolutely not crafty. Even if I had the time to make these cool homemade gifts, I don't have the talent. I love the ideas that everyone has posted. Will people be disappointed if they get pre-made gifts in their FE? I don't want to be the party pooper of my FE!

Thanks,
Lisa

Nope. In fact, the majority of the gifts you get in the FE will be store bought stuff...at least that's what we've experienced in the two FE's we did.

I myself am slightly crafty, but lacking in a lot of time. We usually do a gift bag per room containing a variety of different things...pencils, notepads, picture frames, that kind of thing.

Two of the best things we received I appreciated were first aid kids (after the cruise, we put them in the glove compartments of our cars) and waterproof pouches (just used the one we received last cruise at Blizzard Beach to hold our resort cards and cash). All store bought.

Thanks! That made me feel better...and I'm excited to do this!

Hello all, this would be my first time participating in a fish extender group (WBTA 2014) and I was wondering how many people are in a group? And about how many gifts would I have to buy/make? Any info would be helpful, thanks!

I will include a small ziplock bag that can be filled with ice for use on the cruise.
What do people think of my idea?
I am going for something that I have not seen on people talk about here and something that is handy and can be used when people go home, and is small and light to transport.
I think it's a great idea!

In a lucky way my brother owns a button maker. Since my next cruise is a surprise to my family I can't get them to help me make FE gifts, but it hit me I could get my brother and his friends to make me some buttons! (They're doing it as a hobby business.)

I found some graphics online that people had made available for crafting, did some work in photoshop, and came up with some designs. I'll post pictures when I can.

I'm a bit worried though - my FE group is kind of large and I'm going to be carrying a lot of buttons through airport security and customs. Has anyone done something similar? Has there ever been an issue?

Yes, I made coasters out of ceramic bathroom tiles and imagine 40 of those heavy things in a carry on...lol

Love all the neat FE gifts I'm seeing here! I'm cruising the WBTA 2014 and taking a lot of notes I know it's early yet, but I want to make the gift exchange one that cruisers will remember
