My name's Lisa Gorjestani with Details Event Planning, and I'm going to talk to you today about some ideas for gift bags for your out-of-town guests. Clients these days have really made an effort to show appreciation for their guests that have traveled a long distance to be there for their wedding. So, I'm going to give you some ideas of either how to make your own to put a little basket together, or you know, where you can purchase a gift for your guests that can be waiting for them in their hotel room. So, if you were going to put some baskets together for your out-of-towners, there's a couple of different ways to do it. I think one is just finding a container, so you could even get a little galvanized tin or bucket, or craft boxes actually work great, and you can fill these buckets or baskets with either cookies from your favorite baker, pastries from your favorite place. You can even get fresh fruits, if you can maybe even get a bushel basket full of fresh fruit with waters to put in their room. Most cities have visitor's centers, so you can go by the visitor's center to get a book of all the things to do in the area and include that, as well as a little personalized note thanking them for coming. My name's Lisa Gorjestani with Details Event Planning, and these are some ideas of gifts for your out-of-town guests.
