    We are having a little graduation party for my friend and we have a couple games planned. However, we are a little lost on what to get as prizes for the games. Something both guys & girls will like and that won't cost an arm and a leg :-D We need about 3 prizes.

    Thought I asked the great minds here, so anyone have any ideas?

    Great ideas, keep 'em comin!! I thought I should mention that it's a college graduation party so everyone is going to be in their 20's (or older).

    I think I'll steal both these ideas.. Thanks! ;)

    Pair of tickets to a newly released movie.
    Ask motc7 for suggestions.
    Avengers sounds good according to him.

    Usually movie theatres do general gift cards, so they can pick their own movie.

    In the land of gift cards, iTunes would go over big with pretty much anyone.

    Not sure what your definition of an arm and a leg would be, but I'm pretty cheap. :-D

    Pair of ear buds (you can pick them up for about 20 bucks a pair), those liquor packages they usually have at Christmas with the bottle and a couple of glasses, small cooler with some blue ice packs, couple of chairs in a bag.

    I'm usually pretty good at this, but I'm drawing a complete blank right now, sorry.

    If they're 20-somethings who are just starting out, a small gift card to Walmart or Target would allow them to pick out something nice (or, if they're as broke as I was at that age, buy groceries).

    I agree with the others on gift cards.

    Not for a NON Apple user.

    Amazon and you are done....

    Starbucks works well also for GC;)

    Actually, flash drives would make a pretty good door prize. They aren't that expensive, and who doesn't need another flash drive!

    A gift card for Half Price Books (or a similar store) is always a good call.

    Brilliant! Minus the porn -- TMI revealing your tastes!

    I'm saving that one, it's unique and easy and cheap! Even my 3rd grader uses flash drives and there some fun ones out. In fact, I'm putting that on my teacher thank you gift list too.

    I think the porn was to be loaded on the flash drive -- very compact present with a kick!!

    Thanks everyone for the great ideas (except Tim :p, I really don't think any of her friends/family/coworkers at the party would appreciate THAT as a gift LOL)

    We decided on a gift card to a local store that everyone loves, candy (LOTS of candy :-D ), some glass candle holders, a water over rocks fountainy kind of thing (it's really cute, I wanted to keep it for myself!!) and a 5 minute microwave brownie pan (as a back up gift or if we think of another game). We are aware some of them are kind of girly but we did the math and out of the 50 people that should be coming, only about 10 of them will be guys. So they will just have to suck it up and deal with it :-D

    This made me literally LoL :-D
