In my Bunco group, the hostess is supposed to purchase gifts for the various Bunco prizes. I love going to Bunco and seeing all the great prizes I could win, but when it comes to being the one to buy the prizes, the experience can be a little stressful. I want to get prizes that everyone will love, but I also want to get the best value for my dollar since I just have $60 to spend on 12 prizes.
Pier One Imports is a pretty good store for buying prizes. There are many household items that would look great in anyone’s home. Everyone loves candles and accessories and Pier One has a great selection. They also have lots of seasonal items, like outdoor lanterns in the summer, or Christmas décor in the winter.
Additionally, Pier One has sales pretty regularly and so it’s easy to find an item that fits my spending budget, but which was originally priced much higher.
Pier One is probably not the best place to get “booby prizes” that are supposed to be $1 each because there isn’t a big selection of nice things for a dollar. But you could certainly purchase some of the bigger gifts at Pier One, then look elsewhere for the $1 items.
