We understand that you may have special gifts or products you want included in your welcome bags. We suggest selecting the products we carry that you do want included, and during checkout specifying your home address as the shipping address. This way, you can insert your special products in the welcome bags before delivering them to your guests’ hotel. Depending on the product you want included, we may be able to accept shipment of that item from you and insert in the bags with the other products before shipping to you or your guests’ hotel. Please call us to inquire further about your specific requirements.
