OOT Bags/Baskets

We're going to do OOT bags or baskets for our guests. We will have the hotels place one in each guest room in our room blocks to welcome everyone to Raleigh. So, I've been trying to come up with things to include in the baskets and this is what I have so far:
- Welcome letter from bride and groom
- NC Map
- Raleigh Visitor's Guide
- snacks and drinks, including NC items
- soap or toiletries
- customized map and directions to ceremony and reception
- cards, cheap games, etc.

A few months ago, I had found this super cute DIY idea, of individually wrapping soaps with a note from the bride and groom for the OOT bags. You can find instructions, here. Well, I decided to do mine slightly differently, and will include them in the OOT baskets. Here are the materials that I use: soap, ribbon and wrapping paper. Then, I'll add a tag with our monogram or a little note saying "soap from the bride and groom" or "welcome" etc.
