Gift ideas for surprise cruise

Does anyone have any creative ideas of a Disney cruise gift/trinket I can get to give my grandmother and sister to tell them we are going on a Disney cruise as a gift to them? Gift ideas can be on the ship or off.

Do they have a pandora type bracelet? I got a charm of the Disney cruise ship for my bracelet. It's not pandora, but Chamelia, I think??

You work yourself up more than it really is, and when it's over you think, huh

You could get them a pin from the ports you will visit. You could buy them on eBay if you won't be on the ship before that.

i'm doing a simple thing and wrapping up the dvd that you can order from dcl and I stopped at a t.a. and picked up the broucher on dcl cruises. I figured that they can get excited and explore the ship options all in one gift. plus, it cost me nothing so bonus!
i'll be monitoring this thread though just to see if there are any really great ideas that I may have to 'borrow'.

I seen a post where a mom gave her kids little things for a few weeks like Disney characters, Disney candy, Disney movies, ships, things from the Caribbean then after the few weeks she asked them to put it all together and guess what she was trying to tell them. She said it was a blast and was driving her kids crazy.

For Christmas, the family will get gifts that they can use on the Alaska cruise. It should be fun to see their expressions when they get a thermal shirt, hat, gloves. Where we live they have no need for it Might get a Tervis for everyone also and some pins.

The cruise is their main gift and a Graduation gift.

don't forget the option of having the character phone call informing them of the cruise. that's how we always surprise our family.

I am surprising my hubby (who knows we're going to Barcelona - cruise is 4 night med) on the morning of the cruise, we're going to go for a sunrise picnic breakfast - which he doesn't know about yet.

I'm hoping we will be able to see the ship come in but have been unsuccesful in finding out if we will or not. & I will have something in the picnic bag to find - not sure on that detail yet
