    When we cruised almost 3 years ago, there were a lot of gifts that represented where the families lived. Is that still the case?

    I always have such a hard time with the boy's and teenage boy's gifts. I have two daughters and I feel maybe my mind doesn't work that way.

    I agree, boys gifts are tough. We have more teen boys on my next cruise than any aged kids. I bought baseball trading cards, but that might not impress. Any suggestions out there?
    Thanks, Jill

    when we sailed in March i gave pencils sport team themed and a box of movie theatre candy. Most of the guys that I talked to said they like the pencils (always handy) and of course loved the candy. Another idea is to get them a gift card with a small amount to use in the arcade. When I asked our group about that they said that would be great no matter the amount.

    Our FE group has 2 teen boys (16 and 17). I got them some boxes of candy and have glow bracelets for everyone. Thought I'd put a few extras in their bag. I think they'd like wearing them around the ship at night (I hope!) I also bought the last two glow balls at Five Below (so hoping no more teen boys join the FE!!). I thought they would be fun at night on the sports deck. They're actually kind of cool! Couldn't really think of anything else.

    As for the tween girls (not that you asked) I got princess nail files and nail polish. Figured I would give that along with the Disney gift I'm making the girls.

    I loved the Keychain! We were in your FE group on the MR Wonder Cruise. I have it on my car keys. Thank you so much for a cute gift. I still haven't downloaded my pictures of my FE gifts. I will have to do it this week. Loved the cruise and looking forward to the next one. Wish we could have had more time to talk, it was great to meet you and your family.

    I found some cool skull and cross bone charms off of ebay with "PUNK" on it and placing them on a black rope chain. Plan on giving the teen boys one of those and some candy--movie theater box of gummy kind. Local store had them for $.73 this week!

    We did the FE for the first time in the MV of the Fantasy. We were under the impression that the giver was suppose to be secret. We got a lot of FE gifts with the givers name or business card. We're doing the FE on the Oct. Hawaii cruise.Do we include our name and cabin #? Thank you

    I need some ideas for ribbon crafts for the FE gifts. I bought some really cool ribbon for our Hawaai cruise in October. Not sure what I can make with it besides little bows for the little girls on the FE list. Any ideas and pics would be appreciated.

    If you're on the Dream departing next Thursday, May 3rd, PLEASE don't look! Highlight below for text ;)

    I made drawing pads for the kiddos http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/6969547222/
    and small goodie bags with a few pirate things and a box of crayons

    for each stateroom, a bag http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/7115630235/ made with my yudo

    and a water bottle http://www.flickr.com/photos/79505618@N04/7115630565/
    made using water decals

    I have 2 concerns at this point! again; highlight...

    I being that I didn't even think about it until yesterday but the bags have a sturdy base that I can't fold or anything! So they aren't going to be able to be put in the actual FE! Can I leave it on the floor in front of the door or hang it on the door nob or something?

    The next is what to put in the bag with the water bottle! We have a lot of adults on the cruise so I want to put something extra in there! There is no way I'll have time between now and next week to make something else! But what should I put?!

    Those are really cool! I've been eyeing the Yudu for a while now...you've got me thinking I neeeeeeeeeeeeeed one ;)

    You should be able to hang the bags on the doorknob.

    Is there something you can buy that is native to where you're from? Candy, etc.?
