Pampered Chef: Do you give a PC gift for Christmas party?

  1. I am attending my church's ladies Christmas fellowship tomorrow. We are suppossed to bring a small gift. I was thinking about using something PC, perhaps a Season's Best, one of the calendars, and someting small like an all purpose spreader. Does this seem like a good idea or should i just go with the typical lotion or handsoap type gift? What kind of things do you give for these type of gifts? PC products or no?

    I LOVE giving the trivet, especially this time of year. I look at it as double gifting! I give them to almost everyone....;)

    Definitely give the PC gift. If I had something at home or had planned ahead, I'd definitely do that. I'm not one to want lotion or soap. Chocolate would be my first choice, but PC is second place.

    I always give a PC gift. We have a "secret sis" at church. We draw a name every year and bless that person throughout the year with cards and gifts. I purchase different things throughout the year, but when Christmas time comes and we get to reveal our secret sis, I always give her Pampered Chef products. One year I gave a pie plate and things to go with it. This year I had an elderly lady who does without a lot of things because of her income. For Christmas I gave her a TTA filled with tools, along with towels, oven mitt and pad and a cutting board.

    Whatever your price range you can find a wonderful gift in our product line. What a blessing!!

    To tell you the truth most women (well at least me!) throw away those lotion/soap gifts! I know, it's bad but I hardly ever like the scent. PC gift all the way!

  11. Thanks for all the replies. So I have a F/W Season's Best and I am also going to include one of our "vintage" Season's Best. I also have an all Purpose Spreader I can include or one of the old pizza cutters from the outlet. Would you include one of our calendars. I have a few that don't have a home yet.

  14. Last night was our ladies fellowship party, so I brought my PC gift and we played dirty Santa. Pc gift was a hit and I think I am going to end up with at least 2 parties out of it. One of the ladies of my church has been looking for a PC consultant, and said she'd book in Jan, and another of my church ladies said she'd book off of her show! I am so excited! I have been trying to subtly let people at church know that I am now selling PC, and now I think I have finally done it!

    I had a party at my cousin's house last night. They all wanted to know what PC item I was doing for our dirty santa. lol.. I was thinking of the mesh colanders (breaking it into a set with the middle colander, pasta sauce (homemade) and noodles for a gift. They all thought it was great. :)

    What's Dirty Santa?
     
  18. It's basically a game where everyone brings a gift, then each person chooses a different gift and opens it. After everyone opens thier gift, each person has the opportunity to keep the gift they originally chose or trade with someone else. However if someone chooses to trade with you you have to trade. Last night I ended up with the ugliest purse imaginable, but it was tons of fun! Funniest part is my MIL is the one who traded me the ugly purse for the gift that I had traded someone else for.
