Yes, I am! Looks like there are more Staggers here than on the Stag site.
I also brought three extra pairs of dust goggles, and gave them out during dust storms. Several pieces of my clothing went to other people as well. I wasn't planning on giving the clothing away, but some of it just looked better on other people.
When it comes to gifts, just look at what you are buying for yourself, and pick up extras of those to give away. If you need it, chances are someone else does as well.

Additionally, we got a box of those neck bands that you soak in cold water and wear around your neck to keep cool to give as gifts. I still have the one that someone gave me on my first burn and I use it to this day.

It was amazing. I wore those until they actually fell apart.

Like yeah! I got ten boxes of icy pops............. that's 1000 pops. I'm going to hand out 100 a day................ (I am there for pre-burn as well, hence the 10 days)

Although I am bringing some proper handcrafted tonic water to give to fellow ginhounds.
