    I have a bamboo bowl with different gifts in it for people to choose. Right now, I have past seasons SB, quick cut knives, citrus peelers, and as of yesterday, some certificates I made up if they book a show.

    I'll attach what I have - but it isn't really pretty - I just printed it up on card stock and cut them out....

    Becky, I think I have seen that you use Vista Print, I bet those coupons would work very well on a postcard template in your bowl!

    I usually just have some twix-it clips, pan scrapers and citrus peelers. Sometimes I'll throw in extra items if I have them - quick-cut knives, old season's best, etc.

    I heard a great idea for new consultants the other day. They usually don't have the extra money for supplies or extra things lying around. So, have them get a $1 box of Jiffy muffin mix and make up mini-muffins. They can do 4 bags of 6 with a pretty ribbon tied around it.

    Cheap, easy and instant gratification for the winner!

    If I'm running low on my usuall stuff (SB, Twix-it clips, etc) I do free shipping or tax on me, just to have a little something for the guests.

    I am find right now that my best gift is free S&H. I do the early bird drawing, and yes it is getting people there on time, and then I do one more during the party. I also do one with questions about the business. So I spend $12.75.
    It is a write off and to my guests, money saved is money saved. Cash seems to speak volumes right now.
    It also does several things for me,
    1) I do not ever have to worry about buying stuff to have on hand,
    2) I don't ever have to carry it;
    3) I never have to figure out where I put it;
    4) The best part, and I have done this, if a party is not so hot, I simply never expose more than the early bird drawing so I never feel obligated to give more than one away.
