Maria asks…

Prizes for a baby shower?

What are some good prizes to give for game winners at a baby shower so far i’ve got candles (2),a target giftcard,and a picture frame thats all i could think of anyone have more ideas

GardenersCardiff answers:

A great favor (or prize!) at the shower….everyone loves a home-spa experience!! Buy bath salts in bulk (Ebay is a great resource for this and I have, personally, bought from the buyer called BARE NAKED SOAP and have found her homemade bath salts to be GREAT and very purse-friendly!!). Buy cellophane gift bags or small mason jars to place the bath salts in. Create custom labels made with all your baby shower information and attach these labels to the ribbon at the top of each individual cellophane bag or jar!!! A wonderful and memorable momento for your guests!!

(Suggestion: Budget for 1/2 pound to 1 pound per guest attending for this favor or prize!! Bath salts are heavy and what may sound like a lot when purchasing usually winds up being about half of what you expected. )


Purchase a nice medium sized wicker basket. Fill it with a blockbuster gift card, a couple of packages of Movie-Theatre Style Popcorn, and some gourmet soda, tea or juice. Tie it up with shrink wrap or tulle. Instant Home-Movie Night!!!

Places like Michael’s and even Wal-Mart or Target often sell beginning scrapbooking kits for less than $10.00. A great gift….and if the receiver doesn’t need it she can always hand it over to the new mommy who probably would love to have it!

Other great items:
handmade greeting card box sets, gift certificates, and gourmet food mixes or preparations (the type that are storable, not perishable). Garden goodies… animal stakes and statues (garden gnomes are everywhere this season!! So cute and funny!), flower seeds. Kitchen goodies like nice potholders, towels, gadgets or gizmos. Gourmet coffee, freshly ground. Think EXTRAVAGENT and DECADENT…..but on a small scale that will be appreciated by your guests but not overwhelming to your purse!!’

Good luck and have fun!

Side Kick: Press Square(2), then hold Square.

During the “Help Gary” mission, make your way to the boiler room. It should be on the table next to the fire extinguisher.

Behind the Mexican restaurant next to the bike shop in Bullworth town.

Found in the fourth photography class on the Bullworth dam.

Look on the table on the right side of the door to the upstairs in the “Nerd Challenge”.

Found on the ground just before you enter “The Tenements” building.

Free arcade games
Get the high score in “Consumo”, “Monkey Fling”, “Nut Shots”, and finish in first place in all races in “Future Street Race 2165″ and “Future Street Race 3D”.

Free soda
Drink 220 sodas to get free sodas from the soda machines.

Use the following trick to get free sodas from soda machines when you have less than a dollar. Go up to any soda machine and repeatedly press Triangle until a soda drops down. You can repeat this as many times as needed.

Invincibility in dodgeball
While playing dodgeball, press L2 to display the help screen immediately before an opponent has the ball. While the help screen is displayed, you will not be knocked out if you get hit. The ball will bounce off your player, allowing you to pick it up and go on the offensive.

Easy money
Go to the basketball court anytime after 4:00 p.m. To play the Penalty Shot mini-game. Bet the maximum of $20.00. Go up to the line, then press Circle to jump. Press X to throw while in mid-jump for easy knockdowns. -From: EGHQ and Edward C. Lewis

To make a lot of money quickly, save the game then go to the midget boxing arena at the carnival and make the largest bet possible. If you lose, load your game and repeat until you win.

Easy tickets
Go to the carnival, then go to the “Splish Splash” game. It is fast, easy, only costs $1, and results in three tickets each time. Additionally, go to the carnival, then go to the “Hammer” game. Repeatedly tap X to get three tickets every time, if done correctly.

Easy Faculty Taunts
Go to the Principle’s office and taunt the secretary. When she starts to chase you, just run around the desk and continue taunting her (while locked on with L1) for as long as desired. If she grabs you, just tap Triangle(10), or if she is not already irritated, you can just keep apologizing, which also helps your stats. This works for almost all staff — just run and taunt. -From: EGHQ

Easy yearbook photos
To get a lot of photos in the Yearbook, go to either dormitory, pull the fire alarm, stand by and press Up, then start snapping them as they run by. -From: EGHQ

Easy Lola’s Race
Before you start the “Lola’s Race” mission, get a motorized bike. Drive it to where you start the mission. You will be able to race with the motorized scooter while everyone else in the race has a normal bike. You will go much faster, but the handling is worse.

Fighting multiple opponents
When fighting more than one opponent, sometimes you will get hit from behind. To prevent this, push over as many opponents as you can until there is only one person standing. Beat on him for a short time, then push him over when somebody else gets up. Beat on the person who got up and push them down when others get up. Try to keep as many on the ground as possible while only handling one or two enemies at a time.

Get some itching powder. When you get into a fight, if you need help set your weapon as the itching powder and throw it at one of the people you are fighting. They will start to itch. While they are itching, beat them up. The itching powder should last long enough for you to beat them or at least get their health in the red zone.

Saving others from beatings
To save someone from a beating, grab the attacker(s) by pressing Triangle and throw them far away from the victim — so they will focus on you, and you will not accidentally hit the victim. -From: EGHQ

Destroying all pumpkins and tombstones
After starting the “Halloween” mission, you can get a bonus for finding and smashing all the pumpkins and tombstones around campus. If you do not find all of them, do not worry. In the next (and last) mission of the chapter, where you go into the basement of the school with Gary, you will get to the boiler room. Inside will be all of the pumpkins you missed in the “Halloween” mission. Kick all of them for an unlockable. Later in the game when you unlock the “Preppie” part of town, go to the asylum. Next to it will be a warehouse, and inside are all of the tombstones you missed.

Endless Summer Chapter
It is possible to finish the game without 100% in all missions. However, if you watch the end credits you will see that Chapter 6, “Endless Summer”, has been unlocked, which allows you can do any missions that you may have missed.

Girlfriends fight
Kiss one girlfriend then walk slowly until you find another girl you can kiss. You must walk slowly so that the girl you just kissed will follow you. When you kiss the next girl, the two girls will start fighting.

Kissable cheeleaders
All the kissable girls are cheerleaders, except Beatrice (nerd girl), Lola (greaser girl), Zoe (townie girl), and the fat girl. You can see the girls as cheerleaders during the Gym class hour at football camp.

Kissing Kirby
After Chapter 5, you can kiss Kirby the jock.

Kissing Vince
After Chapter 3, you can kiss Vince the greaser.

Trent romance
Get flowers from the girls dorm, then talk to Trent. If you talk to him twice, it will bring up the option to give him flowers. When you do so, the lips will appear and you can kiss him. Note: You must complete the first chapter in order to do this.

Go directly to lesson
If you do not want to walk or run to a lesson, just throw something at the Prefects to get yourself busted. They will then take you directly to the lesson.

After defeating a Boss (such as Russell), you can find their shirts in your room.

Recommended costume
Go to a wardrobe where you can change. Put on the school uniform then go to “Head”. Switch it from nothing to the mascot head. By doing this you will get good compliments on clothing, and making out time with girls is reduced, which gives you extra time and the health bonus.

See the “Bitch” vomit in “That Bitch” mission
Hide in the trash can behind you after you place the stink bomb in “her” locker. When she does not see you, she will vomit and continue to do so as you make your escape. If she catches you before you hide she will run away screaming.

Galloway’s liquor
In the Spencer Shipping Warehouse where you did the “Smash It Up” mission with Zoe, look in the box in the center of the bottom floor. It should read “Liquor for Mr. Galloway”.

Student in trash can
After you get busted by a Prefect and must mow 80% of the football field, run up the stairs in between the bleachers. If done quickly enough, there should be a student (usually a nerd) standing half in and half out of the trash can.

While riding a bike, hold the Left Analog-stick Down to perform a wheelie.

Drive flipped Go-Kart
If you flip your Go-Kart upside down you can still drive around with it and you will not fall out.

Bike on your head
Stand on your bike and pass out on it (basic). When you wake up, it will be on your head, and when you move it will float down.

Broken legs
Get some itching powder and a vase/potted plant. Go to a place without a lot of Prefects. Set your weapon to itching powder and pick up the vase/potted plant. Target someone and press R1(2). Their legs should be in a strange position and they will be scratching themselves.

Defeating Rustle
Throw a few fire crackers at him, then get up close and start punching him. Do this until he is defeated.
