Lol, some of our pot?

Seriously though, maybe some salmon jerky or salmon candy?

I agree, some sort of smoked salmon. 

I’m not sure how much you want to spend,  but if they are visitng Vancouver, what about coupons for the Aqua bus?  I think it’s $6/adult but I know you can get a group rate for cheaper if you call them.   They can get a tour around the harbour.  I loved taking the aqua bus when I lived in Vancouver.

How about walking tour maps of Yaletown, Robson Street, Kits area?

I’ve seen the Yaletown ones in some stores and cafe’s in Yaletown… It got published quite recently b/c there was also a stack in our lobby.

Also… might be a good idea to swing by Chapter’s and take a look at a "Vancouver" guide book.  They usually have walking tours mapped out.

Hi Miss GB  

Did you figure out the maps for your OOT bags yet?  I was at Chapters today and saw two things you might be interested in.  The first one is a tiny Vancouver guidebook (pocketsized) it’s published by "Eyewitness Guides"  It’s $8 each.

The other thing is a box of 50 Vancouver walking tours. It’s a bunch of cards in a box… if you get that, you can maybe copy out the walks you want to include for your guests?  

Good luck!

SB 🙂

Try visiting the Tourism Vancouver office, its at 200 Burrard Street, you can probably pick up lots of free brochures to include in your OOT bags providing maps and info on all the highlights of our city….. Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain, Granville Island, Yaletown… the list goes on and on.  As for ‘treats’ to include, Purdy’s chocolates are always good, but Rogers (from Victoria) are even better but more difficult to find, and Thomas Haas chocolates are the absolute best!!

i made oot bags for my bff’s wedding last february, since she now lives in California, but got married in the Lower Mainland (mission, to be exact ). Anyways, I included a personalised booklet with wedding info and driving directions, and personal recommendations for places to visit and eat and have coffee. Then I included free tourism pamphlets and maps, but only a couple really good ones, because they are all available in the hotels anyways. Then the fun part: smarties (not the silly american ones, the good chocolate ones), and personalised water bottles. Both purchased bulk from Costco. Then they were all put into white paper bags with handles bought in packs of 10 from Michaels, and tied with matching ribbon and a monogrammed tag, with the recipients name(s). My last idea was  to include single use packets of tim hortons coffee in each bag, but in the end i decided to save the $$ instead.

I second the Thomas Haas chocolates suggestion, and was also going to say since coffee is a part of the Vancouver culture too, what about Caffe Artigiano or Delany’s coffee beans or gift cards?  Delany’s might be better since you’re doing a North Shore wedding – there’s one in Edgemont Village near your ceremony location and another in Dundarave which I think is near your reception location, right?
