To cut down on the cost of gifts, ask vendors if any discontinued items are available for purchase. For example, Ken Proctor Jr., development coordinator for the Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth, scored jackets embroidered with his organization’s logo for $10 each (instead of $15 to $25 per jacket quoted by other vendors), as well as sets of three pairs of embroidered golf socks for $10 per set, vs. $15 from other sources.
