I need some ideas

I'm gearing up for a "customer appreciation party" for Pampered Chef that I will host at home, and I'm inviting former hosts and guests that I have come to know, as well as a few others who may want to do some not-so-early Christmas shopping. One of the things I'll be doing at the party is displaying gift ideas using PC products. An easy, affordable gift is one of our prep bowls (they come in a set of six for $20): clear, oven-tempered glass that holds one cup and has a lid. This year PC is even offering colorful snowflake cutouts to cover the top to make them more festive for gift giving, but I'm getting ahead of myself.
Of course containers should always be given filled with something, and these are no exception. Candy is an obvious choice: m&m's, kisses, peppermints... but I'm thinking that there are some other things in life besides candy that would make fun fillers, and be useful as well. Paperclips come to mind. I'm looking for some other ideas. Any suggestions?

And guess what? Any of YOU are welcome to "attend" my party on November 23. I'm offering a shipping deal for out-of-towners: the standard guest cost of $4.25 (no matter how much you order), or half of the shipping cost, whichever is greater (I'll make the adjustment when I process the order). And, everyone who orders will be entered into a drawing for a door prize. I'll post a link soon to make shopping a breeze.

In the meantime, let me hear your ideas!

Hmmmm.... now all I can think of is office supplies.

Staples has lots of colorful desk supplies by the bucketful. Or check out the dollar row at Target, Mike's or Jo's for fun holiday supplies.

Wish I could be there!

Love those bowls, love them, especially with the tops. I was thinking how good they would be for if I had tacos, so I could put all the different things in them,and cover up what I don't use for later.

Well I'm thinking "Christmas" so what about the things that over here are always on the shelves for Christmas baking like nuts, glace cherries, preserved ginger ... or perhaps some lengths of Christmas gift ribbon?

I can't think of anything at the moment for your gifts but I just wanted to drop in and say "HI". Good luck with your party.
Hugs, Janet
