I’m getting married in October and am thinking about doing gable boxes for my Out of Town hotel rooms. I’d like to fill it with Fall related things. Anyone have some good ideas? I’d like to put a decent amount in them- so they will be medium to big not the small ones. Thanks!!

You can have a locally made theme. Buy all locally made products and treats, include a map of the city, and an home made travel guide.

Maple candy? Cheap little gloves or mittens? Definitely a bottle of water. Maybe a map of good places to go to see foliage?

I’m doing gable boxes for our fall wedding as well! Our theme was the town we’re getting married in, though, since it has a lot of food items special to that region.
But anyhoo, bottles of water I think are a must! You could also include:
– Caramel apples
– Maybe some pumpkin-shaped cookies, or pumpkin-flavored taffy (I’ve had it before, it’s yummy!)
– Maybe some pumpkin/spiced bread and some tea for a breakfast treat?
– Donuts! Who doesn’t love donuts and cider? That would be great for breakfast as well.
– A nice fall scented candle to bring home with them?
– Caramel corn
That’s all I could think of, but now I’m hungry!

Ohhhh great ideas! I live in Cleveland, OH so I can’t really think of a theme- it’s much harder than other cities I think. That’s why I wanted to focus on Fall as the theme. These are such great ideas- thanks!!

Ooo, I second the maple candy:
… and the fall foliage maps. Cute idea.

How about some of the harvest/candy corn mix – the one that has the pumpkins, regular candy corn and chocolate candy corn in it. Or some autumn colored foil hershey kisses?
You could make some snickerdoodle cookies – they are really easy to make, freeze well if you want to make them ahead of time and have cinnamon sugar on top and thats fallish.
Anything apple cinnamon would work as well.
How about including a couple of apples – what’s more fall like than picking apples?
Maybe little bottles of lotion since the air starts getting colder and drier in the fall.
How about little bags of pecans or walnuts? If you wanted to get really fancy then you could give them the ones that haven’t been shelled yet and include a small handheld nutcracker.
Apple cider – either a mix that they can just add hot water to or bottles of it.
How about some of those hot hands packets… you kow the ones you break and you put them in your pocket to warm your hands up.
Chapstick – same reason as the lotion… drier air, chapped lips.
Apple cinnamon or pumpkin tea bags
Leaf shaped soap or hard candy or suckers
You could include some chocolate covered sunflower seeds. They come in a fall colors mix: http://www.sunflowerfoodcompany.com/sunny_seed_drops_tab/orig_sunny_drops/orig_sunny_drops_info_tab.html
That’s all I can think of off the top of my head – good luck!

Fall scented candles, postcards with stamps to send back to you (ask them what was their favorite part of their trip, then you can add it to your guest book!), Granola bars, water, trail mix, maple flavored tea bags (my fav), warm socks…I’ll get back to you if I have more ideas!
