Part I: 10 Maine Ideas for Your Welcome Bag

Welcome bags make a big impact for your out-of-town guests. They take some work to plan and coordinate, but they’re worth it!

Welcome your guests with these Maine-inspired ideas:

Small bag of coffee from Coffee By Design (they make super cute minis)

Poland Spring water

Tom's of Maine hand cream or chapstick

small bottle of maple syrup

a handpicked seashell

anything from Stonewall Kitchen

Something fun from L.L. Bean (lots of cute small things near the check out)

Maine Seaweed tea from Cup of Sea 

Chocolate covered blueberries

a Maine inspired bookmark from El's Cards


Other ideas:

small bottle of champagne

something you love, like a crossword or sudoku puzzle

more food: granola bar, popcorn

emergen-c packet

Cape Cod chips


This is also a great time to remind guests of any important wedding events happening over the weekend. Don’t forget to remind them of the great activities and restaurants that are local!


Send me an email if you need help pulling these guys off!


Happy planning!
