  • Innovative Giveaway Items

    ok, I know this question has been asked here many times, but new members join daily, so here it is one more timeeee.....
    My daughter has been asked to be head woman in June. I would like to have the powwow.com'rs to give some interesting things they have seen in a giveaway, things they have given that were amusing, not to copy of course but to put our own spin on it. We are looking for amusing things, and not the same ole same ole that you see so often. This is a one day powwow so lots of close friends and family. Thanks for any ideas that you might have:D

    Ok this is something I made not too long back to kinda make an inexpensive blanket nicer for giveaway.

    I made a blanket strip to attach to it...the trick was I did it out of fabric applique instead of beading it. I was pleased with the way it turned out too...it looked nice.

    It is not necessarily amusing but is kinda my own spin on a common giveaway item.

    My comments are based on what I have been taught and my experiences over the years I have been around the circle. They should in no way be taken as gospel truths and are merely my opinions or attempts at passing on what I have learned while still learning more.

        Personalize anything with pufferpaint!

        Pufferpaint comes in the same colors as beadwork. If dotted on a surface it can also look like beadwork. I have made a whole fancy shawl dance outfit out of pufferpaint. So many people came up to take a closer look to see if it was real beadwork or not.

        You can put pufferpaint beadwork designs on: dresses, coats, shoes, towels, socks, stockings, hats, t-shirts, jogging outfits, pendleton blankets, golf bags, drum stick bags, picture frames etc., etc., etc.

        Pufferpaint is inexpensive, dries fast, can be laundered and your own design can dress up a simple walmart outfit.

        (put an Indian design on your "special someones" underwear and watch their face light up)! j/k
        Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

          people around here give away "laundry baskets" of course filled w/ANYTHING & EVERYTHING including laundry items, canned goods, candles, duct tape (haha), household items, candies... you name it! kinna neat cause it's definitely useful stuff

          pendleton makes nice stuff, quite expensive... but for the "fun stuff" it's reasonable - things like journals, cd cases, purses, small stuff.

                  Buy some pendleton yardage and handmake the drum stick bags, purses and vests. You can get yardage from a number of internet places and even on ebay. I made a tradional fake beadwork set with it. vest, aprons, sdie drops and belt. Looks pretty snazzy.

                  Really stupid people who think they are smart
                  and
                  Really smart people who think they are smart.

                      one of the things I have gotten in the past ...thats really inexpensive...and practical...is the sheer scarves..you get em at walmart for like 1.99 and to me they are very handy...same goes for bandanas..hand towels with embrodery on em for the singers...or....at a dance in Austin...I got a small tool set ..the made in china type...inexpensive to get...but always practical to have

                        With all the snagging and high rate of STD a box of condoms would be innovative and needed to help sustain the NdN populations.
