    Thanks for the info! I have found that many of the palm bags are sold out at certain sites. They seem to be a hot commodity now......

    I searched and searched for palm bags and every one that I found on line that I liked were out of stock. I finally went to the website and looked at the bags that Christene suggested (picured above). I decided to order them and they arrived in just a few days. They are great as they come flat so they will be easy to transport to Aruba. Most of the items going into the bags will be purchased in Aruba when we arrive. I bought the largest size for adults and did get a smaller size for my young niece. Thanks Christene!

    Christene, I love your welcome bags! I'm still deciding on exactly what I will be putting in my bags. I already ordered canvas bags. I'm going to pick up most of the items when I arrive in Aruba.

    Check out these two sites. Someone had previously posted koozies and they are great. I am waiting for mine to arrive. I ordered some for beer bottles, water bottle, cups and a set for the bride and groom......

    I also order some custom water bottle labels, which I received today. I ordered two styles and they came out great. I will get the water in Aruba. I am going to purchase some frisbees and beach stuff for the kids and get Aruba Aloe. I think I am going to put a mini yankee beach scented candle in each bag. I always bring one with me when I go away as sometime rooms smell musty.

    That's a great idea about the candle. I've been looking for 1 oz room sprays but yankee candle ones were $5 a piece and I didn't' want to spend that much. I was thinking about a candle but wasn't sure if the Divi would allow you to burn candles in your room..

    I've always brought a small candle with me to various resorts and have never had an issue. We were in Mexico one time and due to the weather our room was very musty....the hotel even kept insence burning at all times in our room. I don't think you would have a problem with the baby jar from Yankee. Sign up on yankee candle.com and you can get some coupons. I am heading their today to pick them up.

    FWIW, I don't know about the Divi, but each room at the Tamarijn has a Citronella candle.

    Problem solved about the candles/room spray.... I ended up getting room spary's for $3 a piece from Bath and Body for my OOT bags. I'm so excited they are just what I wanted for the bags..
