I have noticed Lots of crops have door prizes and crop gifts for the scrappers and i keep wondering how in the world you would be able to pick a gift or prizes that would appeal to everyone (or at least most everyone)?

What are things you'd like to win or see welcoming you to your crop spot?

*Updated to add:
THe most "useful" thing I've received (ironically) were a post it pad and a pen! They were really helpful because when I wanted to add something to the page that I'd forgotten at home, I could just write a note to myself and stick it on the page.*

I've received adhesives at a crop that I loved, and also magazines (although that really isn't much of an option right now...)
Most scrappers like ink pads,totes, small tools, you really can't go wrong with generic stuff like that.

I prefer no door prizes, for that same reason...most of the time it's not something I would really want/use.

I was just at a crop and one of the things I really liked was a package of sample/day trip use baby wipes without alcohol. It was great for cleaning off my rubber stamps. We also had a custom wood veneer made with the crop logo that each lady got.

Cindi - I thought the same as you!

One crop I went to gave away reusable plastic cups with a lid. Those seemed to be very popular and it wasn't something I would have thought to giveaway at a crop.

Do we always have to receive a door prize and and prizes at every crop? It is included in the cost of the crop. We are now in the age of digi scrappers which makes door prizes even harder.

I rather save my money on the door prizes and prizes and just have crop time. That is just me.

However, prizes given do not have to been scrapping related..like mentioned above. Great prizes can be.....

Covered cups with straw
Recycle grocery type bag with crop logo or crop theme if their is one
Lunch bags to bring snacks and drinks to crops
Luggage tags for totes...we have lots of the same items
Pens and notepads
Fuzzy warm socks at a winter crop

Basically useable items....just my 2cents

I have only been to crops at one place, and she always has a table full of prizes and you choose from them. They vary from a birthday kit to albums to stickers to ribbon to paper, so there's pretty much something for everyone.

On a side note: do many digi scrappers go to crops?? I eouldnt have thought so, but I'm not a digi person.

You can buy Tervis type tumblers at Big Lots for $2-3

i keeping wondering how in the world you would be able to pick a gift or prizes that would appeal to everyone (or at least most everyone)?


But isn't that true of any door prize or gifts for groups? Shower prizes? White elephant Christmas gifts? I just think it is for fun, not the actual item being the "perfect gift" for all and sundry.

I make the favors that we give everyone who attends our charity crop.
I try to keep it simple but semi-useful and crafty.

Over the years, I've done mini post-it pads, note pads and matching pens, treat bags with candy, nuggets, little hand sanitizers, pretty hand soaps...

I think this year I'm going to little flower pots with either succulents or pansies/petunias. Something pretty and alive.

I like the idea of the tumbler with a lid. That might be a good one - don't know if I can turn it around in a week though!

When I attended my one and only "crop", I won the big prize and I shared items that I wouldn't use or "not my style" with the ladies at the table next to me.

These ideas are great since we all have different scrap styles and tastes. I've been to many crops where I've won papers or embellishments that just don't work for me. I've even been to some where the store owner just cleaned out the clearance section. I so would have preferred a water bottle or travel mug.

I love door prizes! The last crop I was at they gave away a lot of GC to Olive Garden, Starbucks, Red Robin in increments of $10.00 each. There were some very happy winners! Sadly, I was not one of them.

The best door prize i've won was at a CK Univ. crop. I won the Folding LED SureCut Rotary Paper Trimmer 12-Inch that retails for $119.00. I love it, because I keep it on my work space and take my other one with me to crops. The blade never needs replacing and although it opens to 13x13 when folded its 6/12 x 13. I don't know how I lived without it.

I've also one great kits, gift cards and even a free crop weekend.

I love most of the ideas that were suggested and I'm happy with pretty much ANY prize BUT...
I work at a craft store and we now give mostly gift cards as prizes since that makes most people happy.

One prize I'd like to see for a weekend crop/retreat I attend that is held 3 times/year is a certificate for the crop fee.

The person that coordinates the crop has door prizes donated by all the "sponsors". She is a CM demonstrator, we then have either a CTMH or Stampin' Up demonstrator (they alternate crops) and an LSS owner. They all have their little areas in the banquet room where they set up there "stores". You get tickets in your goodie bag and then place them in the bucket that corresponds to the prize(s) you'd like to win. They draw a ticket & that person wins that prize. Everyone gets 1 ticket for the grand prize (different color ticket), so everyone has the same chance to win that.

I don't really want 99 percent of the things listed as prizes. I drink water from the bottle and don't need a cup with a lid, band aids or a note pad.

I went to a crop that had a basket full of all kinds of stuff from the Michaels and Target dollar spots. I picked a pack of rhinestones as my prize. There was all kinds of stuff from brads to alphabet stickers.

I have been to crops where there was an assortment of cardstock and people got to pick 2 sheets of cardstock. This was a good idea.

I really don't want to pay more at a crop to get a prize. Really, save your money and cut the crop fee.
