This has been a fun thread to look through. I am doing the FE for our cruise in August, first time doing it. I must say that I am obsessed with finding stuff to make. My brain is going to burst with all of the information that I have stuffed into it. I am looking forward to more ideas, my brain has a few extra openings.

Thanks.
Welllll......we were a group of 3 adults participating in the FE about a year ago and received a package of silicone mold/home-made crayons as a FE gift. I still chuckle at that. Maybe you are never too old for crayons!

I know, I love the ones I made, so figured kids would too. I did mickey heads and skulls in pirate sacks for the boys and snowflakes and mickeys for girls. I am happy with how they turned out, hope they like them as much as you liked yours. Thanks for the input

So DH thinks the adults would like TGIFridays free appetizer coupons for when they get off the ship, he works there, so it is a little something unique to us....would that be cheesy or more appreciated than something specifically disney themed???

I know we would like that as a gift, but TGI's might not be in everyone's area. It is the thought that counts though.

That would be an excellent gift IMO. I do have to chuckle, my DH used to do the same things when he worked there, especially for school events and such. It always was well received.

The only downside I would see to this is that many people would feel that they need to spend a bunch of money in order to get that "free" appetizer...i.e. purchasing drinks, appetizers for others in their party that don't have a coupon, or even a meal.

Not that it should matter (since it is a "gift", after all) but some people might be put-off and think it was a cheap (or free, if DH is an employee and has access to free vouchers)/no-effort way to do FE.

of course, i understand, but it would only be part of the group's gift- definitely plan on doing some crafting to go along with it. I guess my question is not so much about whether people would gripe over "cost" of gift, but whether or not is non-disney related.

I don't think that "disney themed" is necessarily a requirement for FE gifts. Many people comment how "useful" cruise-survival kits (band-aids, lip balm, etc.) are, and those are not 'directly' Disney.

Personally, I LOVE certain, specific TGIF appetizers, so the idea that such a coupon could have a "value" of nearly $10 makes it quite attractive to me. . .

I've posted before about someone who gave an "easy" but fabulous FE gift. They gave each cabin a mickey head wine bottle stopper. That was all, but it was also enough. FEs are primarily for kids, but _I_ enjoyed that 'adult' gift!

I agree might be good for some and it is the thought that counts, we just don't have any TGIFs anymore in our area so we wouldn't be able to utilize it but it is a nice gesture.

I've been looking all over this morning and I'm pretty sure I've lost my mind.

A few days ago I was browsing around for ideas, we are cruising in Oct and it's a first time for 6 of the people we are going with including my mother who payed for a portion of our room as an anniversary gift. I really wanted to make a few cute pairs of earrings for everyone and came across a shrinky dink page with the cruise line logo and a mickey head in life preservers, I was son my tablet and it wouldn't save and now that I'm on the computer I can't find it anywhere. Was it in this thread I've read about 55 pages and can't find it.

If you can help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

the nearest TGI Fridays to us is about 3 hours...so although it's the thought that counts...it might only work for people in metropolitan areas? .
