'Welcome Baskets'... Okay ladies, I need some input!! I have offered to donate some items to the welcome baskets for new incoming troops. These people will be officers and enlisted members coming into my husband's office and the office next door. They will have absolutely none of their belongings with them!! They will stay in a hotel type place on base for about a month until they find a home. We take 'Welcome Baskets' over to their room before they arrive. Typically, there are more 'welcome to Europe' type items in the baskets, but I would like to incorporate some 'this is available in your area' type things. I was thinking this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce myself as a local TPC rep. I can't put just catalogs in the baskets. I have been told that this organization that makes the baskets cannot advertise or promote any one business. I chose to work around that by donating items from my business!! They have said that if I donate an item, I would be able to attach my business card on the items. They do about 100 baskets per year! I don't want this to get too expensive, but I still want to give items that make the people think....'I need to look into this...' So any ideas on a few small things to donate to each basket??? My first thought was a pack of twix it clips, a citrus peeler, a couple of coffee packets and some tea bags. This combination of items are a little expensive, but not too bad. That would boil down to about $6 per basket. That's quite a bit for 100 baskets per year!!! Ideas anyone????????
