This gives me a little hope for our July cruise... I've been buying and collecting FE stuff for about 6 months, and we still don't (and probably won't) even have a group. :sad1: Not sure what I'm going to do with all of this stuff...probably just donate it at Christmas-time. Oh well... Glad it's working out for you...better late than never!! :thumbsup2
What cruise are you on in July?

Wanted to say hello. I'm here getting ideas. I started with the other thread but way too many posts. I'll let you know what I come up with after our cruise!

    Okay - this is the largest FE exchange I've ever done with 72 cabins - :scared1:

    So, those of you who are lurking from the June 23 Fantasy - look no further!


    I went with a luggage theme - so there's a canvas bag to help cart things around on the trip (or organize your cabin or carry whatever at home)


    There is a set of four luggage handle covers to help find your suitcases amid the maze in the port or airport (and to help soften the load of your overstuffed souvenir bag)



    There are also keychains (Not as fancy as some of those I've seen on this board...) to keep the memory of your cruise with you throughout the year.

    Everything is bundled nicely with a card & poem describing the gift:



    I hope that everyone likes them. Credit to the creative geniuses on this board who provided the ideas that led to this FE gift!

    You made FE's for 72 cabins!!!! These are great but I can't imagine how long it took you to sew these... Wow. Great job!

    Both sound very cute! I'll have to keep it in mind if we cruise to Alaska next! What do you mean by handwarmers? The things in the foil packets that you put in mittens to keepwarm?

    Really great idea and notes!
    yes - those are exactly what we gave! We found some great deals on-line for them.

    I don't have pictures but for an upcoming cruise I have made Mickey Mouse soap. I took the Mickey icon ice cube tray we got from WDW and used melt and pour soap, poured into the ice cube trays and voola little Mickey Mouse soap.

    DD and I got the idea to make something special for the girls on our cruise that would be bringing their Amercan Girl dolls along. I found the directions on Pinterest to make doll sized Minnie Ears!



    I had so much fun making these, that I decided to make little autograph book bags for the dolls as well.



    If you're on our July 29th Dream cruise shhhhh...don't tell the DDs!!
    Wow, what a great idea! You did a really good job. I'm sure the girls will love these! ...My daughter LOVES Pinterest! She's always finding ideas there.

    On our Hawaii cruise we made sand bottles. We wanted something light weight for those flying and something a little different than I've seen. We had stickers made up to put on the bottles and found some Aloha ribbon for decoration. The inside we just rolled up a piece of paper that said to place your hawaiian sand inside. We thought the rolled piece of paper inside made it look like it was a message in a bottle and looked cute.


    We also had a coupon for free business cards so made up those with a little saying on them and the details about the cruise listed on the front. On the back we put our names and our stateroom number. We hole punched the cards and added them by attaching to the ribbon when we tied the ribbon on.

    Wow! So creative! I LOVE it!! :cheer2:

    Hello!

    Now that we are back from our June 6 cruise on the Dream, I can post my FE gifts! Forgive me if someone has already used this idea (I haven't seen one posted), but my favorite gift was a Mickey bar xmas ornament! I think they turned out pretty cute, and I had a ball making them!

    I also included a personalized bookmark, goodies from our state, special treats for the kiddos, and a little poem/map to go along with each gift!


    I think I will do it again for our cruise next summer too!:)
