The following is a list of suggested items: stamps, Post-it-notes, notepads, pens, pencils, crossword puzzles, sugar-free cookies and candy, crackers, lotion, shampoo, soap, anti-bacterial soap, wipes, toothpaste, Kleenex, Chapstick, envelopes, magnifying class, small address book – or – any other item you feel is appropriate.

Thanks in advance for your help.
