    The baskets look wonderful. What type of items are in adult theme baskets? What type of items are in a basket for a teenager? Any pictures would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

    I am working on getting photos up. In the meantime we had a mixed age basket. The adult things were;
    wine, munchies, magazine . . .

    Tween things (DD almost 13 and DS almost 11) were;
    soda, munchies, flashing neckalces for pirtate night, frisbee, sodukos . . .

    Sorry these pictures are really not very good. We only got one photo before the kids tore into the basket and my DS was acting crazy in it (pretending to eat the candy through the plastic:rolleyes:). It was cuter than the blurry photo makes it appear;

    Here you can see the bag and most of the contents. There were actually four kinds of each soda but the kids only put one of each in the photo and I think a box of candy was eaten by then as well:

    Does anyone have more pictures that you can post? I'm thinking of placing an order this week but would love to see a few more baskets first.

    thanks for all the ideas - I will be ordering things for our upcoming TA cruise - one very large snack bag with Dr. Peppers, Rootbeer, favorite candy for movies, etc. I do not want to have to haul it to the ship and while some of what I will ask for is available on the ship I like the fun of it all wrapped up an in our room when we get there.

    The size bag we saw zipped up with the rest of the luggage - does that bag hold a lot? Can I do that as a family snack bag?

    Also another question - can you get a gift that is in a non-see through wrapping? My son's birthday is 11 days into the cruise and I would like to do one for him but for his birthday - not a big one as we do not have lots of extra room but would still like to have him a birthday basket.

    Our first baskets were so great and have not done them for the last 2 but this trip I will be making it up to Shirley :). My husband's birthday is the day before we sail and this is the first birthday of his we have gotten to spend with him in about 3 years because he is in Iraq so I want to do a belated birthday baket for him full of his favorite snacks and fruit (do they sell YoHoo's down there?)

    This is so great what she does. I need to find pictures of ours and post.

    We ordered two baskets. One with the tote that had a good amount of sand toys, princess coloring books, pez, princess cups, bubbles, snacks, and drinks (all princess themed). The other was all pirate themed for our 8 year old son. It had a Jack Sparrow hat, telescope, map, eye patch, cap, glow-in-the-dark necklaces, gold coins, snacks, drinks, tattoos, etc.

    The kids thought they were great! :thumbsup2

    Our nieces are going in April and I need good ideas for an Easter basket for tweens and a teen.

    I ordered our gift "baskets" /totes today from Shriley for our March 6 cruise. I had the pleasure of speaking with both Shirley and Melody. I told them a few things that I would like to have included and then told them to just throw in anything else in addition that they might think would be nice. I feel comfortable leaving things up to them for the most part. They seem very nice and I am impressed with how smoothly the order process was. I am anxious to see the gifts when we get on board. Thanks Shirley!!

    I was so excited the day I ordered my basket, it felt like Christmas to me. It started to feel real to me and now we have less than 2 weeks left!!!

    I will try to take pictures and post them after our cruise. I cannot wait!!!

    I did not order mine until just a few days before we sailed. I got the medium sand buckets. They were so big and had lots of sand toys, these were much nicer than any we could have bought on board. We had Capri-Suns, Oreos, Goldfish, fruit snacks and of course, pirate stickers! I think Melody is who helped me and when I told her that DS was obsessed with pirates, she made the cards out from Capt. Jack Sparrow and some cute pirate lingo written on the cards. Very pleased with these! DH and dd were walking back from CC and some lady wanted to know where we got them on board and my DD said "my mommy had them sent to our room for us!" They LOVED them :lovestruc
