Everyone loves having something to munch on in the hotel room (other than the mini-bar). So add in some local food favorites that they can enjoy now or later.  Aunt Sally's famous pralines, Cajun spices or hot sauce and the requisite Hurricane cocktail mix all add a local flavor to Louisiana welcome bags.
