    What should I put into a welcome package for my wedding guests who are coming from overseas?

    Definitely include the following:

    bottled water

    some type of snack (nosh, fruit, pretzels, mints) clear directions to the shul (auf ruf) and/or your home, as well as a hand-drawn map to the homes where they will be sleeping, with all street names clearly marked. Maybe a Jewish magazine or paper, some type of reading material.

    It’s nice to write a poem or nice note of welcome to them.

    These are just a few items that come to mind.

    A bottle of whiskey.

    A full Artscroll Shas (or at least a set of pocketsized Kehati Mishnayos).

    A bag of potato chips.

    An iPad.

    Speaking from a guest’s point of view – If I would ever find Advil in my welcome package, it would make me wonder if there’s something about the caterer that I don’t know about but should!
