bookmarks and magnets seem to go over good.... I used the Bill Cosby saying " Only humans allow their offspring to come back home" , got a lot of chuckels . A penny from heaven makes a good magnet...

at our family reunions we all take our information and photos to view. Most of us have a binder where we keep our printed information and we always fill in new babies or deaths in the family to keep it up to date. AT one reunion they gave out gag gifts. Like oldest person in attendance got a magnifying glass to read printed material. One year we exchanged recipes for our dish we brought to ahare at the potluck and assembled cookbooks. The last one photos were taken of each family and then shared on a shutterfly site for all to view and or print out. If a location is rented we ask each family to chip in some money so not one person has the burden of the rental fees. Have one person bag up some candies or chips in single servings so you don't have to worry about dirty hands dipping into a bowl of candy or chips and put toppers on the bag saying "welcome to _______
family reunion" Some family get matching tshirts to wear and then you know who belongs to which family. One family would wear red, another blue and yet another maybe yellow or green or have last name on them. This is just what has been done at our family reunions. It is always a hit to have water activities for the children. Water ballon toss or small wading pool or sprinklers to run through. Or hold it at the beach with adult supervision.

My "favors" for the family reunion this year will be bread and butter pickles using the same recipe that was given to me by my mother-in-law years before she passed away. I plan to print out the recipe on pretty cards to go along with the jar of pickles.
I will decorate a table with a small basket with empty decorative canning jars and canning supplies inside.

A few years ago I did a quilt theme. I made quilt themed bookmarks and decorated with a quilt and candles.

Another year I did the ceramic tiles with the family crest on it. I found the crest online, printed it out on sticker paper and attached it to the tile and did a clear coat finish.

BTW, Blazer - I have already mentioned my ideas to Brenda but thought I would share some of them here for others that might be interested.
