1 Small Bottle of Wine
2 Pieces of Fruit (Ex. One orange/one apple)
1 Famous Amos Pack of Cookies
1 Cheez-it Pack
2 Small Advil Packs
1 Reusable Tote from HomeGoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls (So guests can reuse them for groceries/etc, many of our guests really like this type of thing).
1 Welcome Packet
What am I missing? I’m at about $4 a bag, and expected to spend around $6. I’m thinking maybe a full size candy bar or something chewy and sweet like gummies?

Shameless bump. For those of you saying I should add something salty, what do you think of beef jerky?

I’d add a notepad and pen, but that may be in your welcome packet already. Oh, and for the candy, I’d put in mints.

How about some salted roasted nuts? I know a lot of people try to focus on proteins over carbs, so some almonds might be good. I love jerky, but it can get caught in your teeth, so I usually only eat it when I have floss nearby!
PS: I think your bag sounds great – I would love to get something like that!

Honestly that sounds like more than enough to me. I’d be psyched to get that! Ours only had chez-its, cookies, mini wipes, water, and a cute welcome packet and everyone was totall thrilled by it.

Anything regional you could add? Like a local brand of chips or candy or some other specialty? I always think thats a cute touch!

What about some hand santizer? What about trail mix? Then you can add salty and sweet (make your own, it will be tasier and cheaper in bulk!).

How about things your guests can use – tissues or pepto/tums!

@ebarnes0: Great idea!
@MaryRachel: The wedding is in Houston, so I could get local jerky, but other than that I am unsure of regional products. I dont live there, unfortunately.
@Schatzie821: Mmm! I think that might be what I add! Im going to check out the pricing tomorrow! Love the idea of personal trail mixes! 🙂

sounds good so far. what about the snack size chocolate bars that you can buy in the bags (like halloween size). also, small packs of skittles would be good.

I think the cheez-its have you covered for salty, but local jerky could be fun. Or as a PP suggested, maybe some hand sanitizer – mini bottles are cheap and super useful. But really, I think you’re good as you are.

I really hate Cheez-its, so I’d replace those with something that’s still salty, but less processed, like Kettle Chips. Beef jerky is also a great idea, but that can definitely get pricey. Trail mix also sounds great.
I think everything you listed so far (besides Cheez-its) sounds great! People will probably be psyched about the wine 🙂

@cologirl: Im considering doing the pop chips instead, they have some pretty great flavors. I might add them and cheezits, so everyone has something they would enjoy! Thanks for the suggestion!
