I am in charge of creating 74 goody bags for an upcoming marriage retreat for my church, and I am in desperate need for some frugal, creative ideas on what I could put in these bags. In the past I know people have put little candy bars, a bag of microwave popcorn, a couple of packs of hot chocolate, tea bags etc so I was looking for ideas that might be something similar, but maybe a little different too. Would you have any fun thoughts on this?
A Few Ideas:
- Visit www.likemerchantships.blogspot.com - Meredith does a fantastic time being incredibly hospitable on a budget.
- Our women's retreat coordinators wrapped the following things in a cellophanebag: a mininotebook, a pen, a candle, peppermints, chocolate kisses,and a colored paper quote/scripture.
- A friend just suggested packing candies that correspond to questions: an almond joy - share a joyful moment in your marriage, a hershey kiss - something about your first kiss, snickers - laughs, lifesavers - when your partner has 'saved you' in public, Big Red gum- something that gives your marriage energy/passion.
Do YOU have any ideas? What would you love to find in a gift bag at a marriage retreat?
