They also had some of the same ribbon at Wal-Mart in the craft section.

I already have a 9yo going on my cruise.. don't know if I can handle 2!
I found some at wal-mart last night in the CLEARANCE section so check there if not in the craft section.
So this is part of what I am working on for our FE gift...
Bookmark/magnet with the song Brazzle Dazzle Day quote on it, beaded Mickey head charms, and a Bear Necessities emergency kit.
Had fun making everything even though I was overwhelmed at first. We ended up with 22 cabins in our group, so had to edit some of my ideas because of the cost and space, but happy with what we ended up with!
It is up to the individual - Our gifts are usually themed from our home town, we usually include a postcard with a note from our family. Some people add their names others don't, there is not "set" rule - you whatever you are comfortable with. Personally, we like to know who our gifts come from.
Love the luggage tags, was actually looking for an idea for them. Great tip on getting them off of eBay.
Thanks! I think I can swing by today on my way home from school!
Would someone mind sharing with me, what are FE gifts? I feel like I'm missing out on something exciting!!!! We have already taken 2 Disney cruises and anticipate our next one to be in the spring of 2014.
Remember seeing the bags that look like something you might place your mail in it at home to organize the bills etc hanging from the Fish... This is a Fish Extender.
On the cruise meet thread this is usually organized...like a secret Santa. You make gifts for everyone and place it in their bags and they do likewise.
Oh wow, how cool!! I'm new to DIS, so when we plan our next cruise there will be a thread that I can sub to and we can chit chat and someone will assign us a "secret santa" to have fun with during our cruise? We just need to buy our FEs?
If you search the boards here you will find directions on how to make one, buy one on EBay or can modify something to be a FE. Then there are also threads on what other people place in FE's , ideas for each age group etc. These boards have been a great help for me as we are participating in our first FE group in June!
Laurie thank you so much!! I'm loving it!!!
Once you decide what cruise you are going on, go the the cruise meet thread and find your cruise date. You can talk to others going on your cruise. Hopefully you will have a group that wants to do FE. You can make or purchase the FE to hang outside your door. Make sure you check the size in the directions because the space is narrow. From your cruise thread you will have a list of cabins participating. Some people do one gift per person, some one per cabin, some several small gifts. They are usually passed out at your convenience, however some groups schedule certain days. It is awesome to come back to your room and find surprises!! So fun!! Our cruise is almost a year and a half away but we enjoyed it so much our last cruise that we are starting to make gifts now- sure hope we have a group that wants to do FE.
with so much talk this weekend about good and bad FE's i thought i would bump this so people can see how much time, thought and energy go into Fe's gifts.
Bad FE's?? Oh no!!

Those are awesome!!
Those are great! And yes, I agree, the fun of making them!
In a past life, I was creative and had time for projects....current life, not so much! However, I've been excited creating our FEs and while they aren't quite as amazing as all I've seen on this board, I think they are nice and I've had fun making them. I think that is the spirit of the FE, isn't it?!
Wish I was a teenager on your cruise. These are great. Do you have directions on how you made them. I can be creative but need directions. My son has been talking about these cords in Boy Scouts.
I love these!!!
