One side had the insurance company name (credibility and authority) the other had my contact information.

Refrigerator magnet calendars and "In case of emergency" magnet cards did well with seniors. The advantages of those are. They fit in a #10 envelope, they do not cost extra to mail, they have a limited shelf life, they are designed to be displayed useful and not salesy. With a nice color laser printer they can be personalized.
Emory boards sound like a really good idea.

couple others I've never seen but I would like to receive.
chapstick
finger nail clippers

Ones that I get that I use are cool return of address labels.

I think you had an advertising thread somewhere this might be better in, but I don't know where it is anymore so I'm putting this here.

You know how some of the newer developments put up a wall between them and the high traffic streets? Not a gated community, just walls with street entrances.

A few days ago I saw a very large poster on a street entrance wall of one of those areas. It was a realtor sponsoring a neighborhood garage sale (in an area I'm sure she'd like to have listings in).

I don't know what all the sponsoring entailed, but she had a high visibility poster up for 3-4 days on what I would assume is at least a 15K a day going home vehicle route.

My take: You want to send something cheap, flat, easy to mail and, above all, USEFUL to whoever is getting it.

The little letter opener is a great idea. I still use one from a company I worked for 20 years ago.

Another possible gift that hasn't been mentioned is a cork coaster. I have several from that same company that I have scattered around the house for wherever I'm drinking something.
