Out of Town gifts are not a necessity as far as I know, rather just a nice gesture for people who come from farther away. If you still want to include Out of Town gifts, I wouldn’t do anything really elaborate… Maybe a map of the area, some bottles of water and a couple snacks or something like that. Not too expensive, but enough to let them know you are thinking of them and appreciate them travelling to join you.

I agree that Out of Town are not necessary. Some people do them because they want to, and I’m sure they’re appreciated.  I would say that if your only Out of Town guests are part of the wedding party, it’s especially unnecessary.  As the other poster suggested, it would be nice to give them a simple, little something to acknowledge their time, effort and expense.  But only if you want to and have the budget/time for it!   Good luck 🙂

I agree with the girls. Not necessary.  Maybe something small, if you have time and money.  If not, no big deal.  I’ve been to many Out of Town weddings and didn’t get an Out of Town bag.

Out of Town gift bags are an above-and-beyond kind of nicety to make your guests feel extra-welcome. No one should feel pressured to provide them, regardless of who your Out of Town guests are.
