My sister just invited me to a casino night that has an auction. She looking into seeing what the guidelines for donating are but I would have to come up with something around my office because the event is next week! Here are the items I have, any good combinations/suggestions?

Large Bamboo Bowl
Thai Peanut Sauce
Grill Tray
Silicone Grill Brush
Metal Loaf Pan
Stainless Steamer
Mega Scraper
Small Quik-Stir Pitcher
Beer Bread Mix
Some random spices and seasonings

I do also have some reusable bags that I could put stuff in. My first thought was the large bowl with some spices and seasonings plus a catalog and upcoming host specials. Or the loaf pan and beer bread (cheaper) with a discount coupon. My other thought was to promote the HWC items, I earned those and wouldn't mind using them in the door prize (minus the martini glasses). Wish I had more time!

Do a personal Gift Certificate redeemable only with YOU! That way, they can get what they want and odds are, they will probably spend MORE! :D

You can then choose to do it as commissionable sales in their name, or on your Kit Enhancement in April (to make it cheaper) and give them a gift receipt. ;)

I was going to add a little something extra like a 10% discount and free kitchen show. I have these products laying around my house so I figured it would be a good way to get rid of them without spending money out of my pocket.

I too have a casino night this weekend that I donated for. I never give products (at least as the main prize) because the chances of people contacting you for more is slim. I give a gift certificate that will double if they host. This year I also included a Season's Best, a bamboo spreader with a card attached that said something like, "Spreading yourself thin? Contact me to learn how to earn extra money with a flexible schedule." I also put in the specials for April and May along with a catalog. *I love the 10% discount idea-do you do that for a year, like a PHD?

Good idea, maybe I'll just do a couple small items with a coupon. If I did the 10% I would just offer it as a 1 time deal.
