Hostess Gifts

Most people that I know give out some sort of gift to their hostess for having a party.  What you choose to give is totally up to you, but I have a few suggestions for what you may want to do or not do.

I always suggest to my team to give something that is a current item in our catalogue.  This way they can tell everyone how wonderful it is and encourage them to purchase it.

If I am running a special where I am trying to increase bookings, then I may offer a larger version of my usual gift or I may offer extra credit to my hostess.

Some companies offer special items that are not available in the catalogue and that the consultant can buy at a great price to give away.  These could be test products; products discontinued a while back, a variety of things.  Be cautious using these as giveaways at a party as someone may fall in love with an item, recommend it to everyone, and then you disappoint them when you cannot get them
