Some do a customized gift that requires time plus a lot of effort and that is the reason we try to have a cutoff date.

It is totally up to you how the gifts are done. Some do a stateroom gift, others do something for the kids in the room along with something special for the adults - the only limit is your budget. Please don't worry if it is not much. I have received many different things from bookmarks, magnets, themed cups and coseys (those things that can go around a canned drink) and little bags of various candies. I have also received things that people have done that were state specific and also country (some past cruises have included new friends from Canada).

I have found a lot of threads on the DIS that give great ideas for the FE and gifts plus magnets.
These are the ones I follow and believe me there is a lot of great pictures and information. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on these.

This one is called Homemade FE Gifts (Part 2)

These are two individual posts that give the basic concept behind the FE and the directions for the no-sew FE. I have made 2 and pretty much followed the directions with a few modification to suit me. Any questions please let me know and I will try to help. I am in the process of making another for this trip. My first one had four pockets my last one only had two pockets and this one will have three pockets.

This is a great one for magnets and milliepie (one of the disigners) is great! She has done a few for me and I will probably get her to do one for this cruise also.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2897587

This one is the Creative Disigns thread which has a lot of disigners that do a lot more than magnets. But most of the disigners give their photobucket accounts and such that you can go look at and get ideas and other things.
http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=105

I know I have overloaded you here and don't think you have to read all of them. It took me a while to find them all, so save them for future use, and I hope it answers some of your questions.

Again, to the group and I look forward to getting to know you and everyone else in our group!

So glad you are joining us. I have referenced the post where I explained a little about the FE which is similar to a secret Santa, where we have a hanging with pockets hanging on the fish which is outside our stateroom doors. Member of the exchange give out gifts as explained above.

If you want to join I need to know now since I am sending out the list to the group tonight. Then we will consider the FE group closed. We will need members of the family names and ages of children and if girl or boy. We will also need your stateroom number.

If you have any other questions ask away!!!

Hello Tandemomma - welcome to the group! I am the one who needs the last names, please. Can you pm me? I have a little something that I am making - nothing too big - but it does need your last name, please.

Can't wait - we cruise in one month!

Hate to bust bubbles, but Tandemomma, you don't have enough posts to be able to pm us. I can pm you but until you get 10 posts, they do not allow you to pm any of us. I will pm you my email so that you can let me know your info and I will let Syd Macs Mom know from that!!

I don't think she can pm if she hasn't made a certain amount of posts. I know I couldn't send any Pm's until I had made like 10 posts

No, she can receive, but not pm herself.
