You don’t have to do either. Are you going to rush around and buy all that stuff, after you get to Cabo, or buy it all at home and haul it down there? Both ways seem like too much of a challenge. I’ve never gotten anything, in a welcome bag/favor, that I wanted to use 100%/or haul home in a suitcase. (And who cares what your sister, or anyone else says; buy her a joke favor, if she demands something).

Packets of Advil, Tums, and/or Pepto Bismol, travel sized lint rollers, a few small snacks or candy.

Lily_of_the_valley:  You don’t have to do favors or welcome bags! Welcome bags are great, though. I appreciate them WAY more than favors. 

I’d say skip the change purses. You can get something that is less expensive that your guests will appreciate way more. I always like having a bottle of water. Also, one sweet and one savory snack is lovely. You could buy those dove chocolates that come in big bags and have cute love sayings on the inside of the wrappers. Just toss 3 or 4 in each welcome bag with maybe a bag of pretzels or chips. Also, a pack of gum or some mints are always nice!

Most likely a waste. I would like snacks/drinks, but they are 0% necessary.

We (mostly I, LOL) plan to do welcome bags. However, it will be mainly snacks. I too, will do one per room. I am thinking of just going to BJ’s and getting a pack of cookies, chips, candy and gum. Our resort is all inclusive, but I think it will be nice to for our guest to have a few snacks on hand in the room

I’m planning on doing them as well… So far I’m thinking thank you note, schedule of the weekend/things to do list, snacks/candy, mini first aid kit (tylenol, bandaids, etc), sunblock, koozies and chapstick. Costco is my friend!!

I thought that about the snacks too but then I figured it would be nice for first thing in the morning or maybe once they get back to the room at night. Just something simple like a granola bar, trail mix, or candy bar.

Lily_of_the_valley:  I picked up some small water/pool items from the dollar store for our bags, but we also didn’t do too many- I can see that getting out of hand for like 50-100 bags! The most loved item was little water guns we filled up with tequila at the bar & squirted them in each others mouths for shots! I also got some little float rings that worked really well for snorkeling & just hanging out in the water. I second the pp’s that mentioned a tiny first-aid kit with pepto, advil, & tums- they also had little mini band-aid packs at the dollar store as well…
