I think of palm trees, lots of sunshine and white sand.

Definitely oranges.  But coming from South Florida, I think of bagels…and from my time in Central Florida I think of Plant City Strawberries.

I would add an orange or something to do with oranges.  I think a coozie is a good idea too! Maybe some type of seashell gift?

To condense some of the other bee’s AWESOME ideas:

2) Pre-stamped post card
3) Sunscreen (OR Aloe… ha!)
4) Coozies
5) Wedding weekend itinerary
6) Maybe some bottled water? It’s always SO expensive to buy at the hotel
7) Maybe a few other snacky-items, like granola bars or something.. just in case!

So cute!

Flip Flops are a must in Fla, living here myself I always have them on or in my giant purse haha… You can get cute cheap ones at Old Navy.

Living here in FL I can think of these things off the top of my head:

Sunglasses (ofcourse)

Flip Flops (I saw that other girls mentioned that too)

And I did see that someone mentioned boiled peanuts, GREAT idea!!!! I LOVE boiled peanuts!

Maybe you can find a $5 gift card to somewhere “florida-ish” that’s near where youre staying…like if I were doing it for Panama City Beach I’d put a Tropical Smoothie gift card in there, or some type of souveneer shop.

I LOVE the idea of the Orange…you definitely cannot go wrong there!

Nail polish for the ladies & possibly axe cologne or something for the men? That may get a little complicated though trying to pick and choose men and women between the bags.

Sunscreen is a GREAT idea

Seashells! Since we’re all about the beach, I’d get a little bag full of seashells!

And if I think of anything else I’ll come back 🙂 Good luck!!!

Sunscreen and aloe (just in case 🙂 ) 

If you include water, make it Zephyrhills! Woot Florida water! 

Silly sunglasses 

Seashells/starfish (if you are near daytona there are great places to get these in bulk cheap!) 

As a Maid/Matron of Honor once I also made lil angel ornaments out of seashells for a wedding once… oh my fingers!

I live in North Central Florida.  How about some mosquito repellent.  Like Skin so soft in a cute little container with a homemade label on it.
