It's also time to give the travelers their swag.
Thanks to forward thinking and Amazon Prime, I was ahead of the game this year and putting these together. Each traveler receives:
- A NY keychain
- Cough drops (for shows)
- A NY transit pop-up map
- A whistle to blow if they loose me in the crowds (I decided our signal is "short long long" – Morse Code for W)
- Band-Aids (Marvel AND Barbie)
- Hand wipes
- A small zippered pouch (which I did not sew myself, despite temptation to customize each one per kid)
They also get their choice of bumper sticker:
And their choice of luggage tag (which, okay, I did give in and make myself. I can't do a project like this and not have at least one DIY gift!):
Personally, I think this is much better than bright orange matching t-shirts, don't you?
