Opinions wanted...

As my loyal readers may recall, I have a  Bar Mitzvah coming up. Well, my son has the Bar Mitzvah. I'm just paying for it. The ceremony is to be held on a private beach during a cruise.  I am planning great swag bags for my guests who are family and best friends. The swag bags are going along very well and I am starting to obsess over making them fabulous.

So for the next few weeks, bear with me as I discuss these bags which are taking over my house at this point.

A note to my sister who sometimes reads my blog...If you want to be surprised, please stop reading right now. If you want to give your opinion, please do. Everyone else who is not going on the cruise, please chime in with any suggestions and keep checking back as I post other items in the bags

First of all, the bag...

This style bag won out. It is lightweight and cute. I purchased the logo on Etsy. This logo is only on the bags and on the notes that I sent out to the travelers with information. The pirate logo seemed too tough for the bags which will be carried by ladies. The pirate logo is going to be on almost everything else that we give away during the trip.

I wanted  some beach stuff in the swag bag. My guests range in age from 3 to almost 80, so I had to be very generic. Everyone can and should use is Sunscreen, so I put some in this heavy plastic case. It is not waterproof but water resistant and you could throw your seapass/room ticket/boarding pass thing and a few bucks in there.    

What do you think? What else can I put in there that someone would really want on the beach?  I'm sort of stumped. Is is good as is?

I'll post more swag tomorrow!

Japolina, Maybe some cheap flip-flops. You'd about have to know some sizes. maybe a cap. I hope that helps . I like to be there helping you. Maybe your girlfriends have some better ideas. xoxo,Susie

is it too late to order something like a frisby with your logo on it? that is fun on a beach or a beach ball?

I wanna come on your cruise! and to the Bar Mitzvah! Ive never been to either. where are you cruising to? It sounds like youre going to make it a lot of fun for everyone. What does one get for gifts for his Bar Mitzvah? I bet he is really looking forward to this. And what stinking ADORABLE baby pictures!
have a great day!

How about sun visors with the backs open so they fit everyone? It's probably too costly and late for an anchor logo, and a disposable camera? I don't know how many people so that could be very costly also.
I like the bag you chose, it had my vote so of course I like it. ;-)
Daily reminder alert: BREATHE
