    hello! I am looking for ideas to make a gift bag sort of thing for my mother, sister, and daughter (12) for our cruise in December. Was looking for ideas either personalized and/or Christmas oriented. Any suggestions would be helpful!!!

    Are you planning on giving this to them before the cruise, or once you are on board.

    If you do it before, then you can pack a bag with things that they would need/like/find handy on the cruise. If you do it once you are on the cruise, then it changes things.

    If you are giving it before the trip

    Stuff for Castaway Cay - sunblock, a postacard and exact change if they want to mail one, snorkling equipment rental (although I would bring my own, but that's just me), flip flops/water shoes

    Depending on your budget, a waterproof camera (you can get some pretty cheap ones)

    A lanyard to hold some cash and ID (not for Castaway Cay, but for shore excursions) - go ahead an personalize it if you want

    Highlighters (to highlight what they want to do in the daily Navigator - this is much more handy than it sounds)

    I know if you leave something at guest relations for the characters to sign, then they will have it signed by all of them for you at the end of the cruise. I know a lot of people do pillowcases. Maybe you could find something Christmasy, like a large oranment or picture frame with a lot of blank space, and use that.

    I'd think about those cute hand sanitizer holders and hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works--they usually have holiday-themed scents and holders that are perfect for attaching to purses/day bags for going out on excursions!

    Characters will still sign things, you just have to wait in line. So glad that I got my pillowcases signed when I did (even if I'm the only one who appreciates it :p)!

    Etsy has become my big go to for cruise gifts. There are a ton of shops on there that sell items that you will love
