Title: Gifting Ideas
Post by: Orphena on May 16, 2017, 11:32:11 AM
Good Morrow!

I am seeking ideas for inexpensive gifts to hand out to members of cast. I already do favours (and am trying to encourage the practice) but we are also exploring the idea of giving gifts as "bits", and as Queen and Artistic Director, I wanted a way to do a public thank you to the actors who worked so hard. Our festival is only 1 weekend long, so this is a one time deal, not something I need to do week after week.

I am looking for an idea for the following - an actor who also does a little bit of fire breathing, something for guardsmen / mercenary (I'd rather not more weapons!), something for our village peasants.

I already have ideas like handkerchiefs, brooches, feathers for hats, herbs for our herbalist....

Impress me!

A black handcuff key for guardsmen/mercenaries

Maybe a tinderbox (fire starter) for the fire-breathing actor?

Peasants; so many options.

Peasants?  I think nothing is appropriate  ;D :P

You sure are getting sassy in your old age, Gauwyn.
