With your overseas guests flying into Israel from all over the world, Welcome Bags are the perfect way to show your appreciation for their travels. From custom goodies and snacks to itineraries and maps, here are our favorite tips for the ultimate welcome bags for your wedding guests in Israel.
Choosing a Bag (or Box)
Your chosen welcome “vessel” should create a great first impression and allude to the style of the festivities to come. For a luxe, high-end look choose a two-piece gift box tied with satin ribbon or twine. Planning summer wedding? Gift your guests their beach bags with custom totes.
A Taste of Israel
Provide your guests with healthy snacks by including bags of nuts and dried fruits straight from the shuk dressed in chic packaging. If you prefer sweet treats, just make sure to stay away from chocolate in the spring/summer months – they will melt faster than ever.
Mini First-Aid/Hangover Kit
Save your party animal guests a trip to the pharmacy by supplying them with a “Hangover Kit.” Ideal contents include: Tylenol, aloe vera, sunblock and mints.
Wedding Week Itinerary
Including a well-designed itinerary will make sure everyone has the information they need regarding wedding events such as timing, locations, travel, and dress codes.
Bringing Israel Home
Include an item that guests can bring home as a souvenir like a jar of locally-made honey, Israeli-harvested olive oils, locally-crafted soap, or a bottle of wine from the Golan. We love these jars of flavored almond butters by Tel Aviv- based “Rusty Nuts”
Local Tips and Resources
Whether they travel to Israel regularly or are visiting for the first time, your out-of-town guests will love receiving a short list of restaurants, bars, sights and shops personally recommended by an Israeli they trust – you.
