    Definitely the wine! But may not be as appreciated by everyone…maybe if the hotel has a bar do they have drink tickets or something?

    Wine bottle is nice, but out of town guests will have to finish it in the hotel – it’s not like they can take it on the plane with them, opened or unopened. Very inconvenient. I thought about that when I was deciding what to do to welcome my guests too, and that’s why I chose gift bags. You can put a wine sample bottle in your gift bag though!

    Anything with snacks is my preference.

    We thought about wine too, but because like a PP mentioned the out of town guests would have to finish it before they left.

    Have you thought about mini bottles? You could put that inside the bag along with a few traditonal items-water, snacks, etc.

    I thought about doing wine too – but then I thought about a ton of other factors. Like I have friends who will only drink white versus red (or the other way around). We have a bunch of family that doesn’t drink so they are immediately left out. Then there is the transportation of it to the hotel and figuring out whether or not the hotel will allow outside alcohol to be distributed (they lose on the mini-bar)…so eventually I just said eff it and I’m being more creative with the welcome bags!

    For the wine, it depends in my opinion.  I’m a wine drinker, and love it!  But is this going to be a “favor wine” or an actual branded wine bought from the store.  Because I’ve tried those personalized favor wines twice now and they are undrinkable :/

    Full disclosure: I actually did liquor for my out of town bag.  My last name is the name of a liquor 😉

    We’re doing wine or pop champagne (i can’t decide) with our welcome bags. Welcome bags will probably have water and some snacks in them. Best of both worlds!

    I never would have thought about people not being able to take wine home with them if flying (unopened they could put it in checked bag) but then again I guess we’re the type of people who don’t ever open a bottle without finishing it!

    i love wine personally, but only white wine.

    i would also like snacks and pretty much anyting in a welcome back (except bottled water, little toothpastes etc…i have my own!). but then im also the kind of person who always likes and keeps favors so i seem to be different from the majority

    snack wise – savory id eat, sweet i wouldnt.
