    I voted based off of what I always bring on vacation (I never forget sunscreen, a beach bag, chapstick). I don’t think it’s necesary to give everyone motion sickness medicine, since people who get motion sickness usually will bring it themselves. I don’t know that I would drink the alcohol, but it seems like you think your guests would. I also don’t think you need to give them beach bags, but I’m assuming you’re packing everything in them

    I also would give them water and a snack if they aren’t free or cheap at the hotel. Those are the things I always wish I had in my hotel room at night, especially if I’ve been drinking

    I voted for:

    full size bottle of rum punch

    4 oz sunblock

    4 oz aloe gel

    chapstick

    shot glasses

    flask

    beach bag

    My prioritiy is my skin, and the rum punch sounds very nice.  🙂

    It’s super sweet that you’re working so hard to treat your guests well. As a guest, here is what I would want in order of preference:

    1. Sunscreen
    2. Aloe
    3. rum punch
    4. headache medicine
    5. Umbrella
    6. Beach Bag
    7. Emergen C
    8. Flask
    9. Chapstick
    10. Shot glass

    If it was me putting together this I’d probably get the top 4 things and a snack or 2 and a map/list of activities and be done with it.

    I would have motion sickness medicine and bracvelets available on the boat. That way they’re there when people need them (as oppsoed to being forgotten back in the room) and can be used by those that need them and not wasted on those that don’t need them. If they were in the bag, my fiance would use his but mine woudl go to waste as I don’t get motion sick (knock on wood!)

    @Overjoyed:  hahahaha if they are providing a pitcher and glasses, then what I would actually include is a reusable aluminum water bottle (you can get them at the dollar store) instead of the shot glasses, and throw in a bag of pretzels. I would just worry that your guests will opt for alcohol over water at the beach if you give them a flask and alcohol, which could make them dehydrated very easily.

    Leave out the beach bag- the kraft paper bag will be a lot cheaper and they won’t know the difference, unless you can get a bag that could be used as a beach bag for cheap (like a reusable shopping bag, which can be under a dollar)

    @Overjoyed:    True!  I was looking at the list and deciding which things I’d most likely use and which not, lol.

    I know I get motion sick so tend to be over prepared and I know it takes a while to kick in so I take it before I leave. (and would bring my own) but some people woild preciate it im sure. I loveChapstick because I’m always losing mine and love new ones. I think the umbrella and flask are great ideas too. And cute little keepsakes.
