Need Ideas for Generic Gifts

I’d like to offer “prizes” of sorts to the table hostesses that bring the most new people to the event.

I had initially thought of a gradient of four different awards, based on the number of new people, but all I’ve been able to think of so far are votive candles and potted plants (I am *horrible* at generic gifts.  Maybe because they’re near-meaningless to me?)

So all you random visitors (I think you’re out there– at least, my hit-counter says so) if you can mention your favorite thing to give or get, I’d be grateful.

Smallish things would be the best– this is supposed to be a fund-raiser, so I’m trying to spend as little possible while keeping it “nice.”

  1. What about nice package of cards–generic blank or thank you ones that people could use. I’m always in need of cards.

    Small-ish gift certificates. 5.00 doesn’t sound like much, but to a grocery store or a fun craft type place, that can help a lot–or even a movie theater or video rental place.

    Do you have a dollar store? Sometimes you can find a few little things that you can tie in a bag that are cute.

  2. More on the homemade gifts. . .

    bath salts (make a bunch and then separate into bath-sized packets.)

    homemade, flavored hot cocoa, instant coffee, instant tea (the kids have helped me do this in the past. Very simple. For giveaway-sized containers, put into a jelly-sized canning jar, or maybe buy a bunch of pretty coffee mugs from a thrift store, wash them, and fill them up.) (Email me if you choose this, I’d be happy to share my recipes with you.)
