Auction and Basket Item Ideas – Part III: Miscellaneous

Other suggestions for silent auction items for a fundraiser event :

 Miscellaneous Ideas/Baskets

Titled “Movie Night” – This basket included items for a “Movie Night” in or out.  It included movie passes to theatres, and many DVDs to watch at home as well.  Of course, movie snacks and a big bowl of popcorn were included also.

“Movie Night” – all wrapped up…

Calling all book lovers (like me)… this basket  titled, “Book Worm”, was loaded up with various fiction and non-fiction “good reads”…

The above baskets contained gift certificates to hair salons/spas.  The baskets also included “pampering goodies” such as salon products, chocolates, a Peruvian scarf, picture frame, and even a pair of fun & sassy gas gloves (for pumping gas) to keep their manicure looking fresh.

How fun is this one?  We called it “Behind the Rolling Pin”, and it was for an hour of time baking with a pastry chef at a local pastry shop.

Some silk floral arrangement donations “accessorized” at the event to attract extra attention to them…

Garden center gift certificates including a basket of gardening items to get their planting started…

An interior design consultation donation “accessorized” at the event to attract more attention to it…

We always had beautiful artwork donated by various artists – we called this section of the auction items “The Gallery Walk”…

We would “accessorize” around the artwork with things such as art supplies, art frames, etc.

Titled “For Your Eyes Only…” this basket contained a gift certificate for a complete eye examination donated by a local eye doctor

A gift certificate to a local fitness center included a basket with some healthy goodies

Sometimes by “accessorizing” at your event with some extra details/items may attract that special bidder  you are looking for…
