If you are in need of ideas, we have brainstormed a few for you: 

Collaborative Baskets

Best of “State” Basket: Collaborate with your neighbors as you put together a package of items that represents your state. This could include famous foods, drinks, or sporting good items that represent the state’s very best!

Best of “City” Basket: Bring out the taste of the big city as you and your team hand-select local items to tell your city’s story.

“Favorite Things” Basket: Celebrate your quirkiness as each member of your team contributes a favorite item.

“Conference Rivals” Basket: Come together for a great cause by offering a conference rival basket that represents the Big Ten, MAC, Atlantic 10, Big East, Summit League, and more.

Individual Ideas

Wake Me Up: Share your love of coffee or tea as you select a small item that may include your favorite mug with university flair and your favorite grounds. 

Drop Some Knowledge: Allow others to bid on something to get their creative juices flowing. Select a few of your favorite leadership books that can inspire others!

Geek Out: Let your inner-geek emerge as you select a season of your favorite TV show, graphic novel, comics, or toy.

Sports Fandom: Celebrate your team as you bring a shirt, hoodie, or other novelty item that allows other fans to bid.   

Real Life Adventures: In the age of streaming media, help others break out into the real world with donating movie tickets, sporting events, gift cards for restaurants, and more!

Be True to Your School: Find something unique from your institution to help auction off just in time for winter! This could be a warm sweatshirt, beautiful scarves, or hat just to name a few.
