ISO Table Favors

" I am looking for something that I would call either a table favor.....littletokens of fun, etc. I'm really not sure what to call them. They generally are packaged in little bags, maybe snacksize zipper type. There is a poem attached with some type of food content in the bag. One that first comes to mind is a bag with M & M's. This poem is for menopausal women and the poem says...for this symptom, take the blue ones. For that symptom, take the red ones until it goes thru six or eight symptoms. It then says if you have all the symptoms, consume the entire package. I am looking for those type favors with other themes. They can be holiday related on not. I have seen something with miniature marshmallows pertaining to snowmen and brown Jelly Bellies pertaining to Moose trackings. They are funny, cute and perfect
for table favors or something to package and hand out to give someone a quick chuckle. Do you have any ideas, place where I can find ideas, etc.?"

Can you help this reader?

Here are some that I have found. Im sure I have more. Ill post more if I find them.


BELLY BUTTON BRUSH by Cindy W.

A belly button brush am I,
your naval lint I can't deny,
come on now, don't be so shy!
I have to ask the question why,
Why's your lint a mile high?
it reaches up into the sky!
Does it poke you in the eye?
Does it make you want to cry?
Now I see the reason why,
you try on pants before you buy,
it's cause your lint is "triple ply!"
(and lint like that you just can't buy!!!)
I need to clean & I will try
to keep your secret like a spy.
So come on, give me just one try
a belly button brush am I.

==========================

If your belly has lost it's luster,
Try our belly button duster!
------------
Don't mean to be blunt,
but take a hint. . .
This little brush is
for belly button lint!
----------

If you have belly button lint,
Please keep it to a hush,
But do take this little hint. . .
A belly button brush!
--------

For those with everything
and even worth a mint. . .
Here's a belly button brush
for all that fuzzy lint!




------------------------------------------------------


1. SPECIAL GIFT:
Take a 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 block of wood and wrap it with wrapping paper. After you glue saying to front, put a bow on it.

This is a very special gift
That you can never see
The reason it's so special is
It's just for you from me.
Whenever you are lonely
Or ever feeling blue,
You only have to hold this gift
And know I think of you.
You never can unwrap it.
Please leave the ribbon tied.
Just hold the box close to heart,
It's filled with love inside.

Take some white rice and put in a baggie, Staple saying to baggie.
THE LEGEND OF THE HEN'S TEETH
Somewhere in a remote part of the ozark is a breed of chickens that grow teeth.
The strange thing is that outside this particular area,they cease to grow teeth, which is why all the common chickens you see are toothless descendants of the "Molar Marvels".
Anyone fortunate enough to have these teeth in their possession will find that they bring more luck than a rabbits foot or a four-leaf clover.

GOTCHA, INC.
DONUT GROWERS


14. PRAYER ROCK:
Take a rock and wrap it up with material,tie material closed with a ribbon.
You can either put saying and rock in a baggie or you can just tie the saying on the ribbon.

MY PRAYER ROCK
I'm your little prayer rock,
and this is what I'll do.
Just put me on your pillow,
till the day is through.
Then turn back the covers,
and climb into your bed,
And "whack" your little prayer rock,
will hit you on the head.
Then you will remember,
as the day is through.
To kneel and say your prayers,
as you wanted to.
Then when you are finished,
just dump me on the floor.
I'll stay there through the night,
to give you help once more.
When you get up the next morning,
"clunk" I'll stub your toe.
So you won't forget your morning prayers,
again before you go.
Put me back upon your pillow,
after your bed is made.
This clever little prayer rock,
will continue in your aid.
Because your HEAVENLY FATHER,
cares and loves you so.
He wants you to remember,
to talk to HIM, you know.
(DON'T UNWRAP ME)

If you're looking for a cute gag gift, I have some "Poop" tags that you can fasten to a zip lock baggie . For example, for snowman "poop" you put miniature marshmallows in a baggie, attach a tag that says I heard you've been naughty, Now listen, here's the scoop. I'm running short on coal this year, so all you get is Snowman Poop.

I have a tag for reindeer, elf & grinch. They are really cute.

Is this what you were looking for?
