HELP...What to Donate?

The lovely, Laura Odom of Laura Odom Photography has asked me to participate in a wonderful Silent Auction to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life

Being from a family of Cancer Survivors ~ My Mother (Thyroid Cancer) & my Father (Kidney Cancer), the opportunity seemed fitting.  I replied immediately and said "YES, COUNT ME IN!" 

This year, Laura and her team are trying a new fundraising idea ~ A series of online auctions. The frequency of the auctions will be determined by the number of donations they receive, but they'll be auctioning off something every few days, so PLEASE check back regularly!  And I'll be sure to give you the heads up when my goodies are up and running.
Here's how it works...
Laura will post an auction on her blog.  To bid, you simply leave your bid amount as a "Comment" on their post along with your name & contact info.  Each auctioned item will have a specific cut-off date & the last bid posted WINS! All proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society & can be sent via check or online.  Once received, YOU receive your goodies!
Easy Peazy, Lemon Squeezy!!! (as Finn would say!)

So, here's my predicament...what would YOU like to bid on?
I'd love to raise a good chunk of dough for the Society and was thinking of putting together a gift basket or two of some sort.  What would you like to see in it?  If you'd be kind enough to help me out, all those who comment will receive a special 25% off V.I.P. Coupon Code redeemable at

Thanks a million!!!
