Maybe you could use beach pails/buckets to hold non-beach-themed items — just the “traditional” Out of Town goodies?

You could just put local things in the bags/pails.  It doesn’t neccessarily have to be a theme.

maps of the area and brochures are always a good idea. We threw in some candy, chips, water and lots of other random stuff. You don’t need to do anything expensive either!

What is popular in your area besides the beach? You can add them to the bags.

For instance, Mike & Ikes are made in my hometown and Wilbur Bud chocolates are made in my FI’s hometown so I will be including them, bottled water, other homemade sweets as well as brochures for places around the area.

I thinkthe essentials are good like maps, water, snacks. Will it be during a warm time? You can include sunscreen or flip flops. You can make a newsletter and suggest some places for them to go.

Some snacks are good too- fruit snacks, chips, granola bars, fun sized candy. 100 calorie packs are no-fail! 🙂

Anything edible is always a hit, or at least with me! :p

Oh, and bottled water, because typically hotel water tastes funny.
