Elegant gifts for under $5 in bulk?

I've been tasked with finding 100 gifts, all the same, for our major donors luncheon. Even though it's in December, we're hoping to stay away from any specific holiday. And our donors are pretty evenly mixed in gender, so jewelry is probably right out. I have a budget of five dollars per gift, and have been asked to find something unique and elegant. Last year we found lovely handmade wooden bookmarks. My suggestions of things that could be consumed have not been looked on favorably, I'm afraid. Many thanks.

External Drives Problem

I have two Western Digital My Books (WD5000H) that were being used to consolidate files between two XP SP3 systems. Both of them stopped working at the same time. I use USBDeview on one of the computers that creates a record of every USB device that has been in my system. This showed two separate installs of the WD5000H drivers, plus another install of another unidentifiable WD driver. After the WD drives stopped working, they appeared in a different location as two separate Initio Default Controllers. These drives did not show up in either Explorer, Device Manager or in XP Computer Management panel. An older Iomega external drive and flash drives readily mount. [more inside]

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X?

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X? It doesn't have to be fancy, with todo lists, rich text editor, tags, whatever, it just has to have a navigation tree, and a basic text editor for the tree nodes. The ideal solution would be something like KeepNote, but native for OSX, and not necessarily with all the fancy features. [more inside]
