Share some of those salt and pepper shakers you got from your grandmother. For your prepper, you might want to give a bag of salt and a big box of pepper with the shakers. You can jump start someone's collection and free up some shelf space while giving a gift that reminds the receiver of someone past. A gift that gives more than it's contents is more than a gift.
Clear out your craft room. Bag up some of those opened packages. If you are a crafter, you know the ones I mean. You bought a pack of 200 sequins because they only come in packs of two hundred and you used around fifty. Put the remainder in these little zippered baggies and give them to a friend. Make several packs in similar colors or at least enough to create n ornament. Maybe you can type up instructions and give enough pieces parts to make an ornament or other project. Give home made craft kits as you thin your excess.
