Christmas Gift Question???

Okay....I own a car audio business and I deal with lots of "Guys" in our industry. In our business we all take care of each other.... For instance...when we work on a new car and install a stereo and suddenly the "CHECK ENGINE" light pops up on the dash, our repair guy friend clears the codes for no charge. It would cost $100 at the dealer. We always return the favor.....anybody we deal with buys stereos at the same price we pay....so it all works out~! I have 30 people like this. What would be the right gift for all of them to make them happy? Do they get us gifts NO...but that is not a factor.
Remember 30 people times $10 is $300. So what item for $10 is most appreciative without seeming cheesy? I am not cheap. $20 each no problem....just want some input.....Wine? Gift Cards? what would be right?

SEMA calenders



are great ideas Thanks! This really helps!!!!

I am a beer snob, so...

A six-pack or Big Bottle of GOOD beer, like DogFish Head, Lagunitas, Avery, etc.



A food basket from local sources

that can be shared with others at work. Fruit? Locally baked goodies, nuts, jerky and pepperoni?
I have been hearing horror stories about sneak charges on gift cards---for instance a charge each time you use it, a charge to check the balance, etc.

Two years ago I worked hard to get Made in USA items for all my family, and I succeeded, but it was so hard that this year I am revising and just buying everything I can locally so it is gift baskets like I described for many friends.

I am

trying to stay away from gift cards myself. It seems like the cop out gift. I want something that makes people smile. This is great!

I am also in a related business

One of the best gifts I received for Christmas was a playboy calender to put in the lid of my toolbox.It kept my moral high and stress low for a whole year!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.


Northwest Territorial Mint sells silver by the half ounce so you could get each person a half ounce coin for less than $20.00 each.

But you better hurry the way silver is going.

I don't work for the mint and have no financial interest - just suggesting.

I have bought some half ounce rounds from them myself. They're nice.

They advertise on this site too.

Here is their site with the 1/2 half ounce silver rounds...

People love it, and it WILL teach them about real money. Just having it will make them pay more attention to the metal market.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Gift cards are kind of cool but...

...I think something nice they can take home, put on the wall or shelf would really be the neatest gift. I don't know what you could give them.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

Check this site

and maybe you can find something in your price range that is not only made in the USA, but is also LOCAL. Just type in your zip and see what is available.


This is a great site!

Thanks for posting.
