Need your ideas

I really need your ideas and input. I work at a feed store and we are having a customer appreciation sale day. We always give out a small gift to our customers and we never have a problem with the gift to our male customers but I am always in charge of what we give to the women.
We cannot spend much money on these but I am at a loss as what to do this year.
As you would guess these women love the country, animals, gardening, etc.
If you have any ideas to share, I would really appreciate it.

A ?% discount on all purchases over a $??.?? amount good for all purchases made for the year it was given.
A gift that keeps on giving. But, thats just a mans view of what a woman would want--so--what do I know!!!!

RE: Need your ideas

What are you giving your male customers this year? It's too late for this but my local feed store gave out packages flower of seeds earlier this year. I thought it was a nice idea and I actually planted them. The seeds I got were a perennial flower so it's an extra special little thank you. Maybe a couple of fall bulbs to plant??? I will keep thinking.

For me personally, any kind of a discount on grain, horse grooming products, etc. Samples of horse shampoo, conditioner, etc are always nice for me.

Okay, don't laugh, but how about Udder Balm? I use it on my hands to keep them from chapping, it is better than Vaseline or some of those expensive hand lotions, and it comes in a small tube that would be a good "gift size".

RE: Need your ideas

I love the seed idea or a bulb or chapstick,
why not post this on Garden Junk. They have the BEST ideas.

RE: Need your ideas

order in a crate of tulip bulbs, and sack up a couple per paper bag, tie a bow with twine. Nobody will turn them down. And when they bloom, guess what store they will think of?

RE: Need your ideas

Tralyn, what have you decided to do??
